Default Forced marriage on COLORS...

After saas-bahu and children centric stories, forced marriage seems to be another new trend catching the attention of audiences. Shreya Creations and COLORS join together for a new show, which is tentatively titled Reet, which is slated to start in February.

“The story is based on an arranged marriage which is very different. It’s going to be a family drama and the background will be of U.P and Bihar,” says Sheel Kumar of Shreya Creations.

If the buzz is to be believed, the show which was earlier slotted for the newly emerging afternoon band of COLORS will now be seen in a prime time slot. “Well, the talks are on and there is a possibility of it coming in prime time, but nothing has been finalized yet. The show will go on floors from the 25th of December. We will be shooting in U.P and Bihar, but also have sets in Mumbai,” Sheel adds further.

However, our khabroo from the production house narrates about the unique concept of the show. “The story of the show is based on a terrifying custom followed in the North even today especially in places like Bihar, wherein the bride's parents get their daughter married to a worthy guy in the community, keeping the boy at gun point. This ghastly act by the brides' parents is carried out due to frustration, because they cannot afford to get their daughter wedded in a good family, as they can't meet the high demands put up by boys as dowry”.

The reet of dowry has been in this country since long. Let's see what this show has to offer us now!!!
