Vaishnavi says her show set in 1940s is ‘inspirational for 21st century girls’

Mumbai, Jan 20 (IANS) Actress Vaishnavi Mahant says her upcoming show, which is set in pre-Partition India, is inspirational even for modernday girls.

Titled “Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye”, the show is set in Lahore of 1947. It narrates the story of three girls — Amrit, Vashma and Radha.

Vaishnavi’s character believes that her on-screen daughter should get married and settle at the right age, but little does she know that Vashma has her dreams and aspirations.

“I’m completely different from my character – Zahida. Women in the 1940s had a different mindset and they curbed the wings of girls who dared to dream. Zahida is more inclined towards her son and more possessive towards her daughter,” said Vaishnavi.

“‘Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye’ is the story of Amrit, Vashma and Radha and their dream and newfound love, in pre-partition India. It will be inspiring to see the story of these three girls who dared to dream. It is inspirational even for the girls of 21st century,” she added.

“Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye” will premiere on January 25 on Sony Entertainment Television.
