Zee TV and Rashmi Sharma Telefilms have come together again to present viewers with a new fiction offering – ‘Sanjog’, an intense family drama showcasing the journey of two mothers, Amrita and Gauri, hailing from diverse backgrounds.
The two mothers have one thing in common though – that unsettling feeling of not being able to see themselves in their own daughters. Little do each of them know that the daughter they have been raising all their lives comes from a womb other than their own. The narrative is all set to unfold, starting August 22 and will air every Monday to Friday at 10 pm, only on Zee TV.
Set in Jodhpur, Sanjog has an ensemble cast with faces such as Shefali Sharma and Kamya Punjabi playing the roles of the mothers - Amrita and Gauri respectively, budding young stars Hazel Shah and Hetvi Sharma will be seen playing the role of their daughters - Tara and Chanda.
On the other hand, actors Rajniesh Duggall and Rajat Dahiya will portray the roles of Rajeev Kothari (Amrita’s husband) and Gopal (Gauri’s husband) in the show.
Zee TV Business Head Aparna Bhosle said, “At 10 pm, we are proud to present Sanjog, an intense family drama that follows the journeys of two mothers hailing from diverse backgrounds - unaware that they're raising daughters that are not biologically theirs. What follows is an intriguing narrative of what true motherhood is all about. With strong actors like Shefali Sharma, Kamya Punjabi, Rajniesh Duggal and Rajat Dahiya playing pivotal parts, we are confident that the audience interest will be piqued.”
‘Sanjog’ was unveiled in front of the media at a mega launch event in Mumbai recently amidst a Rajasthani set-up along with an authentic ambience to give everyone the true flavours of the show, its theme, culture and traditions.
In line with the show’s core premise of real motherhood being based on caregiving and upbringing rather than biological birth, Zee TV also invited a group of children from SOS Children’s Villages India, the self-implementing NGO in the field of securing wholesome childcare and development, to meet with the leads – Amrita (Shefali Sharma) and Gauri (Kamya Punjabi) during the launch event.
The lead stars interacted with the children, mothers and co-workers, heard their heart-warming journeys out, and pampered them with a lot of love, admiration and surprise gifts, making the day even more special for them.
Sharma said, “I am thankful to Zee TV and Rashmi Sharma Telefilms for giving me this mega opportunity to play a distinct role like Amrita. I hope that I will be able to do justice to my character as she has very unique qualities. She is sophisticated, kind and has natural motherly instincts. I am very sure that the audience will resonate with her and love her for who she is! What makes this show even more interesting for me is that I will be playing a mother on-screen for the first time and I am really looking forward to explore Amrita’s character.”
Punjabi added, “I love to play roles that challenge me as an actor. Gauri’s character has been very well written and has a lot of layers. She is a strong, independent woman who has a very unique way of showcasing her love for her family. Sanjog follows the story of two mothers, Amrita and Gauri, who are unaware of the real reason why their children are so different from them. I am excited to see the audience’s reaction.”
Producer Rashmi Sharma said, “Our association with Zee TV dates back to easily over 10 years ago and we have created some great content that has resonated well and connected with audiences and we are looking forward to recreating the magic with Sanjog. Our latest show is an interesting story of intricate mother-daughter relationships and it sensitively explores how motherhood is not necessarily only biological but emerges from raising your child with love and care. With a stellar cast on board, we hope the audience showers us with all their love.”
Sumanta Kar, Secretary General, SOS Children’s Villages India, said, “Such platforms provide a wonderful opportunity for children to interact with people from different walks of life, providing them, thereby, exposure – children feel happy, excited and motivated. Besides this, this exposure is also an important component of wholesome childcare and development that we strive to secure for every child in our care. At SOS Children’s Villages, the SOS mother plays a pivotal role in the development of children by ensuring wholesome development enabling them to become self-reliant individuals.”
