Actress Sakshi Tanwar, known for starring in daily soaps like "Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii" and "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain", will play a scientist in producer Ekta Kapoor's upcoming web series "M.O.M. – Mission Over Mars".
The ALTBalaji show is based on a quartet of women scientists who chart the journey of Indian Space Agency's Mission on Mars right from inception to execution.
ALTBalaji took to social media in which the post read, "Four Indian Women. One historical Mars mission. A proud moment for the nation. #MissionOverMars streaming soon on ALTBalaji. #ALTBalajiOrginal @ektaravikapoor #MonaSingh #SakshiTanwar @Nnidhisin @PalomiGhosh"
Playing a pivotal role as one of the four women scientists is none other than Sakshi. She will be portraying the role of an independent woman scientist Nandita.
Being a strict disciplined Mission Coordinator of M.O.M., Nandita is one who comes with the attitude of a hard taskmaster, alongside being a caring mother.
"'M.O.M' is an impressive web series completely dominant with women-centric content. I am extremely overwhelmed that ALTBalaji gave me the character of Nandita Hariprasad, which is a senior scientist at ISA," Sakshi said in a statement.
"This series completely reiterates the fact that women today can achieve the impossible and work at any position in their workspace. I am sure that the viewers will love the series, for its cast who portray strong-minded characters and women of substance in the show," she added.
"M.O.M" will also feature actors like Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh playing pivotal roles.
