Elaborating on the show, Rajesh Iyer, Business Head, &TV, said, “With ‘Waaris’, we are now opening up a new time slot and further increasing our original programming hours. The concept of ‘Waaris’ reflects certain social stigmas that are yet plaguing our society and we believe that a differentiated concept like this will certainly be able to find the share of heart amongst the audiences.”

Ashvini Yardi, Founder, Viniyard Films, added here, “‘Waaris’ deals with the cultural issue of the girl child in our country. The story deals with a strong mother who guards a fierce secret to protect her child and the well-being of the community they belong to. Set in the heartland of Punjab, ‘Waaris’ touches your heart immediately through its rich story-telling and its stark characters.”

The show is presented by Patanjali Kesh Kanti and powered by Lemce Socks.
