Sony Entertainment Television’s latest offering, Kuch Reet Jagat Ki Aisi Hai, is a thought-provoking show, following Nandini’s (essayed by Meera Deosthale) journey, who is deeply rooted in tradition but also raises objections to any belief that disregards the dignity of a woman. Actor Dharmesh Vyas, known for his performances in the Hindi and Gujarati entertainment industry, is all set to embody the role of Hemraj Ratanshi, Nandini’s father-in-law, who is conservative and a reflection of the patriarchal society that exists in the country.
The new show is expected to put the spotlight on the prevailing Dahej Pratha (Dowry System) that plagues our society, with Nandini confronting her father-in-law, Hemraj Ratanshi, and making a powerful demand – “mujhe mera dahej waapas chahiye”. Speaking about the concept of the groundbreaking show and his character, Hemraj, actor Dharmesh Vyas shared, “Some characters are created to underline what should not be done in society, such is the character of Hemraj. While I am against this crime which is disguised in the name of tradition, portraying Hemraj has been a monumental challenge as well as an opportunity for me to create awareness and build a conversation against such practices. Hemraj Ratanshi is a hardcore businessman who marches to the beat of his drum; he’s truly an enigma, with his actions and thoughts often veering into unpredictable territory. I’ve transformed myself physically for this role, growing out my beard and graying my hair so that I can effectively bring out the cold and calculative nature of this character. Portraying the character of Hemraj is the biggest role of my life because it challenges my own character.”
Kuch Reet Jagat Ki Aisi Hai launches on February 19 and will air every Monday to Friday at 8.30 PM, only on Sony Entertainment Television.
