Taking into account the popularity of ‘Ammaji’, the character in a villainous role in its former show Na Ana Iss Des Laado, Colors has brought the second season of the show, with Ammaji leading the plot again. Titled Laado - Veerpur Ki Mardaani, the show will be a part of the weekday primetime band at 9.30pm from Monday to Friday, starting November 6.
Produced by Dhaval Gada Productions, Laado - Veerpur Ki Mardaani traces the life of Ammaji years after the closure of the first chapter; with her raising her granddaughters far away from the land she called her own. Making a comeback in a riveting plotline, Meghna Malik reprises her role as the fierce Ammaji with the same boldness and intensity as she did in its first season. The show will feature the versatile Avika Gor as the protagonist Anushka whose firm belief in law weaves together the thread of this narrative along with Palak Jain as her sister, Janvi.
Manisha Sharma, Head, Content, Colors, said, “Na Ana Iss Des Laado, at that time was a very strong character-based story that did very well for Colors. Looking at the socially relevant shows on our network and with the success of strong character-based shows like Shakti Ek Ehsaas Ki and Udaan, we decided to get Laado back but with a very exciting twist. Hope the viewers will enjoy watching the two impressive faces, Avika Gor and Ammaji (Meghna Malik), create ripples together on screen.”
The first season of the show Na Ana Iss Des Laado was telecast between 2009 and 2012 for over 850 episodes. Shakuntalam Telefilms was the production house behind the first edition.
Producer Dhaval Jayantilal Gada said, “It’s been quite some time since we’ve been developing the concept of this edition of Laado. The return of Meghna Malik as the formidable Ammaji alongside Avika who has been one of the most loved faces of Indian television brings to life our vision for this show. Supported by an ensemble cast with some very powerful performances, Laado Veerpur Ki Mardaani is sure to appeal to the viewers across India.”
Set in the modern day, the story opens in Delhi where Ammaji, who has given up her volatile past, is living a sedentary retired life with her two loving granddaughters. A twist in fate leads them to Veerpur (in Haryana) which is now a grim place full of notoriety, blood and violence. The show also features a stellar line-up of actors including Balwant Singh Chaudhary (Rituraj Singh), Ranbeer (Ankit Raj), Komal (Zalak Desai), Tej Singh Chaudhary (Himaan Chodhery) and Sunehri (Sudipti Parmar) among others who will be playing pivotal roles.
