'Raavi' journey of Raavi to Ravinder
"Raavi", a new show that will soon go on air, is the journey of a girl named Raavi, who is made to disguise herself like a boy by her mother and is given a new name - Ravinder.
Actress Rashmi Singh, who has been part of "Dwarkadheesh", will be seen as Raavi's mother Amrita, while Rimi Shrivastav will essay the character of Raavi.
Talking about her character in the show, Rashmi said the storyline is very "different" and added: "Amrita takes a very strong decision to keep her daughter's identity a secret."
The cast has so far shot for the first few episodes and the actress says that as the story goes further the audience will realise that it's a very light-hearted show.
"As far as the storyline goes there is no such tension in the family. It's a very caring family that takes care of Amrita as their daughter. And when it goes further the audience will see that the mother-daughter duo share a very strong friendship.
"If nobody is there in the house, Amrita dresses Raavi like a girl, with bangles etc. It is a beautiful story of a mother and a daughter who keep a secret," Rashmi told IANS.
The character of Papaji, Amrita's father-in-law, will be essayed by actor Govind Pandey.
The actor is happy to be associated with the show and said that it's the concept of the show that appealed to him.
"It is a very interesting story. The concept appealed me as it's very unique. We have already started shooting for the show but the interesting part is how the story is presented as it goes," Govind said.
"Raavi" will go on air on BIG Magic starting Sep 9.
