Adhering to its promise of enthralling audiences across three generations, Sony SAB’s Wagle Ki Duniya – Nayi Peedhi Naye Kissey is weaving in newer elements in its gripping and relatable storyline to deliver impact. While Rajesh and Vandana finally take a sigh of relief as Atharva returns home safely after being kidnapped by goons, what lies ahead of them is a much bigger challenge for the family than rescuing Atharva.
In the upcoming episodes, the viewers will witness the after effects of the traumatic incident that Atharva has gone through and how it has affected him. Through the lens of the Wagle family, the show will highlight the mental and emotional turmoil that a small kid goes through after experiencing something as grave as this and focuses on the correct steps one should take to address mental health concerns.
Sumeet Raghavan essaying the role of Rajesh Wagle, said, “The Wagle family is relieved that Atharva has returned home safely. However, the battle is still on. There is an integral aspect of emotional and mental turmoil that follows such a traumatic incident, especially if it involves a small kid. This is what we, as a family, have to tackle now. Mental health is often brushed under the carpet and not paid heed too.”
“However, ignoring it can negatively impact our entire wellbeing. As a parent myself, I always encourage my kids to share their problems, and I try to be transparent and a good listener to them. I share a similar bond with the kids on the show as well. We are there for them and we shall sail through both the good and bad times together. It will be interesting to see how the family helps Atharva get through this phase.”
Pariva Pranati essaying the role of Vandana Wagle, said, “I am so proud that Sony SAB is highlighting the mental trauma a kid faces due to kidnapping through Wagle Ki Duniya. I am playing my part and contributing towards bringing awareness around mental health. We often focus on our physical health but shy away from talking about our emotional concerns. It is very important to keep a balance between the two.”
“Atharva, at his age, went through something beyond distressing so the kidnapping has greatly impacted his mental health. He will need a lot of care and support from his family to get through this difficult situation. It will be very interesting for the viewers to witness how the Wagle family helps Atharva overcome this and will hopefully give parents some insights on tackling mental health in young kids. My son is still a toddler but when he grows up, I will make sure that he can come up to me for any issue and talk about it without any hesitation. My bond with Sakhi and Atharva is seamless as well in the show. I will keep trying my best to support them and make them understand that it’s okay to talk about mental health.”
