In the latest episodes of Star Plus’ hit show ‘Anupamaa’, the audience saw a riveting turn of events. A track that brought tears and joy to many across the country.
Anupamaa (played by Rupali Ganguly) may not be his legal daughter-in-law anymore, but Babuji (played by Arvind Vaidya) believes she will always be his beti. This is why he decides to split the Shah property among his two children, Vanraj and Dolly, and his ex-bahu turned beti, ‘Anupamaa’. Over the years, Star Plus has constantly evolved and brought powerful stories to the TV screens, nudging society to break free from the bonds that restrict it. Through its shows, it has always promoted women empowerment by highlighting subjects such as women’s education, and now, the status of the Indian Bahus.
The series is showcasing a very compelling yet often neglected theme, the one that says- bahu bhi beti hoti hai. With people across the country watching the television from their homes, shows like these bring the viewers and their family members to realize that women too deserve to be treated with love and respect, regardless of their status or the roles they play.
Star Plus has never disappointed with its progressive content and a show like ‘Anupamaa’ reflects the reality of India the channel wants to inspire in the coming days. From ‘Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin’ to ‘Saath Nibhaana Saathiya 2’, all shows focus on empowering and inspiring women. It has successfully managed to break stereotypes and entertain the audience at the same time. It has challenged patriarchy and regressive mind-sets with each episode, helping its female viewers to know their worth and take a stand. With ‘Anupamaa’ now earning the title of a beti, in the family that isn’t her sasural anymore, Star Plus has certainly made a statement, staying true to its tagline, ‘Rishta Wahi, Baat Nayi’.
