Amruta Subhash said, “Saas Bahu Achaar is a special project because Suman’s character is unlike anything I have played before. She is a force to be reckoned with even in the face of adversity. Her struggle is not sad but attractive and her journey will inspire others to persevere and not give up on their dreams. And all along, what keeps her going is her family. So, it is truly a show with its heart in the right place and I am ecstatic that I got to play such a strong female led show.”
Yamini Das said, “The most attractive thing about the show for me was the saas-bahu relationship. Not often do you see such a positive equation between a saas and a bahu in Indian shows but in Saas Bahu Achaar, Suman’s biggest strength is her mother-in-law, which is so refreshing and inspiring. The show ticked all the boxes for me in terms of the inspiring storyline, the unique character, the much-needed messaging, etc and I am glad that I got to be a part of it.”
Anjana Sukhani said, “I am super elated about my debut on OTT and that too with ZEE5. It was a completely magical journey to be part of this show and I just hope that when people watch this show, they feel the same way about all the characters. The entire team has done an unbelievable amount of hard work which of course everybody does but they have fine-tuned the script to such a level that it couldn’t have gotten better than what it already is. I am in gratitude to ZEE5 for giving me my debut on OTT & to TVF of course. I cannot wait for people to see the show and have a reaction.”
