Nilanjana Purkayasstha who is known for her shows like Peshwa Bajirao and Chandragupta Maurya is all set to entertain the audience once again with her upcoming show Dhadkan Zindagi Kii. The Producer is currently enjoying the audience’s response for the promo of the show which was recently released. In a recent interview, the she talked about it and shared, “It is gratifying because the idea of questioning patriarchy and portraying a heroine who stands up for herself and her career is new to Indian television. The promos seem to have struck a chord with the audience and we are happy about that.”
She added, “This theme of s*xism is the USP of Dhadan Zindaggi Kii. We do it not just through the story of the lead character of Dr. Deepika Sinha (Additi Gupta) but also through other characters and their stories. The show talks about women in a topical way and challenges the status quo of the representation of women on Indian TV for the last two decades. The show is almost entirely based at the workplace and highlights the challenges for women at the workplace, unlike 99% of Indian TV shows that highlight challenges for women at home,”.
When asked how Dhadkan Zindagi Kii is different from the medical dramas portrayed on the small screen so far, she said, “Dhadkan Zindagi Kii is probably the most authentic medical drama made on Indian TV. It shows medical procedures, surgeries, etc in an authentic way. It is not a love story with the hospital just at the backdrop. It is about the lives of doctors, their professional and personal challenges are played out in a seamless way,” she concludes.
