It is said that parenting is the most divine act of love and selflessness. Without expecting anything in return, parents nurture their kids from the moment they are born into the world and along the way, make innumerable sacrifices that are beyond comprehension. But what happens when these kids, raised with utmost love and care, push away their parents in their golden years when they need them the most. As heart-breaking as it may sound, it is a reality of many households around us and depicting such an endearing story of love and parenthood is COLORS’ new family drama, ‘Swaran Ghar’. Set in Chandigarh, it chronicles the life of a middle-aged woman Swaran (played by Sangita Ghosh) and her husband Kanwaljeet (played by Ronit Bose Roy) whose lives are shattered as they get unceremoniously abandoned by their children. How she alone gathers the strength to lead a fulfilling life forms the crux of the story. Produced by Sargun Mehta and Ravi Dubey, ‘Swaran Ghar’ will premiere on 28th February 2022 at 20:30 on Colors India. In the UK, the show will air on Colors Rishtey at 20:00.
Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Head, Hindi Mass Entertainment and Kids TV Network, Viacom18 shares her thoughts on this show saying, “COLORS has remained ardently committed to bringing the best of fiction and non-fiction concepts on Indian television. With a promise to keep the audiences engaged and entertained, we are pleased to launch a new heart-warming family drama ‘Swaran Ghar’. This show will present the various nuances of parenthood backed by a splendid storyline and an endearing cast. It will further strengthen our prime-time slot at 8.30 pm and we look forward to this new adventure.”
Swaran is a devoted mother who dutifully takes care of her family with every fibre of her being, whereas Kanwaljeet is a loving husband who has relentlessly served his family all his life ensuring they are well taken care of. Fate takes a dark turn when Kanwaljeet falls seriously ill and becomes heavily dependent on Swaran. Burdened with pain and responsibilities, Swaran turns to her children for support in these critical times. However, her children disregard her plea for help and cater only for their own selfish needs leaving Swaran and Kanwaljeet in the lurch. On the outside, Swaran picks up the strength to tread through the most difficult phase of her life without her children but on the inside, she grieves over their severed relationship. What does destiny has in store for Swaran? Joining Sangita Ghosh and Ronit Bose Roy in this journey will be the popular actor Ajay Singh Chaudhary who will essay the role of Ajit, Swaran’s former lover and close confidant.
