TV serial bats for women safety

Mumbai, Sept 23 : With a big question mark looming large on the safety and security of the women in our country, Zee TV will in its programming empower women by subtly spreading awareness through its shows.


Recently it was Qubool Hai where Zoya (Surbhi Jyoti) stood up for herself and slapped a man who had threatened her security and made her feel insecure.

In the coming week, Gunjan (Roopal Tyagi) of Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke will question the safety and security of the women in Mumbai.

The plot will show Gunjan returning to Mumbai after a long stay in Varanasi to surprise her husband Mayank (Ankit Gera) on his birthday. He is employed in Mumbai.

For Gunjan, having grown up in Mumbai she considers it her safe haven. It's her maayka where she has grown up before moving to Varanasi due to the untimely demise of her mother.

But as she visits the city after a while, she feels uneasy about her safety as she moves around. While she is heading back to the airport at night she is being stalked by two men.

Fear sets in and she is uncomfortable about being followed by these men.

She reminisces about Mumbai being very safe at night where she roamed around with her friends at night without a care in the world. That peace and safety no longer existed.

It disturbs her a lot and she decides to do something about it.

Says Roopal, "I think it's a great track and currently given the situation of women in the country is very relevant. Gunjan comes to the conclusion that women need to learn self defense in order to safeguard themselves."

"She makes her mind to work towards including 'self defense' as a subject in the school curriculums."
