Rajan Shahi’s new daily soap Anupamaa will finally hit the television screens on July 13, 2020. The show, all set for a premiere in March, was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and following the lockdown.
While the show already marks Sarabhai V/S Sarabhai actress Rupali Ganguly’s return to television after 7 years, Anupamaa will also facilitate another legendary actor’s comeback, Annu Kapoor.
Annu Kapoor has been roped in for the production, that is the Hindi remake of the famous Bengali daily soap Sreemoyee that airs on Star Jalsha.
A source close to the show told SpotboyE, “Annu Kapoor has already started shooting for the show. It was yesterday when we shot for his first sequence with protagonist Rupali Ganguly. His character will be extremely entertaining. He will play a crucial role in Anupamaa’s life.”
Anupamaa stars Alpana Buch, Arvind Vaidya, Paras Kalnawat, Muskan Bamne, Ashish Mehrotra and Madalsa Sharma. Madalsa recently replaced actress Additi Gupta in the show as the latter is battling from COVID-19.
Anupamaa traces the journey of a dutiful housewife, a mother and a daughter-in-law who dedicates her entire life to her family, only to be looked down upon by her loved ones
For the uninitiated, the journey of how Anupamaa, who prioritises the needs of her family, is left struggling for her identity, and how she strives to make one for her won, is what forms the crux of the Star Plus show.
