DD launches new show with message; Sharmila-Soha endorse it
Actress Sharmila Tagore and her daughter Soha Ali support Doordarshan's "Main Khuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon" because they feel that the show, which deals with crime against women, can help bring about a change in society.
In an effort to challenge social issues like child marriage, early pregnancies and sex selection in our society, the mother-daughter duo has come together to support the serial.
"With the show, I can feel the commitment. It is important to support such initiatives because we know what is happening around the country. The show is based on real issues, so in order to convey it and find a solution, I have lent my support to this," Sharmila told IANS after the launch of the show.
"I will also ask (son) Saif and (daughter-in-law) Kareena to join the project," she added.
Produced and directed by Feroz Abbas Khan, "Main Khuch Bhi Kar Sakti Hoon" has been launched by Population Foundation of India (PFI). Marking the spirit of International Women's Day, it will be premiered March 8 on Doordarshan.
The show revolves around the journey of doctor Sneha and her fight to stop crime against women.
Talking about her association with the show, Soha said: "I come from a privileged family and by that I never mean economic privileges, but educational privileges. I was quite stubborn, but I thank my family for supporting, however, sometimes they disagreed too."
"They were in total agreement when I wanted to continue my Master's, but they disagreed when I wanted to enter films. However, they never stop me from doing what I want to. I am very happy that I have such a family and parents.
"However, I am aware that many girls don't have that life and this is the reason why I support the show, which shows a message," she added.
The "Rang De Basanti" fame actress also feels that when a celebrity endorses a cause it makes an impact.
