Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre is all set to make her television fiction debut with Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms' ‘Ajeeb Daastaan Hain Ye'.
The show highlights the journey of a tenacious woman Shobha (Sonali Bendre) who fights against all odds for her family and their well-being. Shobha, who was happy and content in her own little world until she was left devastated after her politician husband Samarth (Harsh Chhaya) was put behind the bars for breach of information. Overnight, she was left holding the reigns of her family in the aftermath of her husband's conducts. While trying to collect all pieces and settle, Shobha ends up meeting Vikram (Apurva Agnihotri), a coffee shop owner who hires her as his assistant. Apart from dealing with difficulties of life at home, she also faces her galling boss at work.
Speaking about her new project, Ekta Kapoor from Balaji Telefilms says, “Relatable characters and diverse concepts are two key ingredients of all my shows. ‘Ajeeb Daataan Hain Ye' captures the story of Shobha who becomes a ‘hero' for her family after she surmounts harsh realities of life. I am looking forward to my association with Life OK to bring forth this grand venture through an interesting storyline”
An elated Sonali Bendre, whose debut is the talk of the town says, “Initially I was a little sceptical about taking up a fiction show until Ekta narrated Shobha's character to me and I agreed instantly. The strength of the character and how she faces her life head on is what appealed to me .The fact that instead of being treated like a doormat she picks up her life and decides to have a fresh start is what resonated with me. I Hope the audience accepts me in the new role and supports me in this endeavour.”
The show will be aired from October 7 onwards, Monday to Friday, 9.30 pm on Life OK
