Mumbai: Presenting a story of hope, love, aspiration, and dreams will be COLORS’ new offering, Udaariyaan powered by Colgate and Suhana Masala. Tucked away in the heartland of Punjab, the story will trace the journey of the Sandhu family who fiercely dreams of moving to Canada. Produced by Dreamiyata Entertainment, the show will premiere on 15th March and will air Monday – Saturday at 7.00 pm only on COLORS.
The Sandhu family’s unfulfilled dream from generations now lies in the hand of their daughters. The two protagonists in Udaariyaan, Tejo (Priyanka Choudhary) and Jasmine (Isha Malviya) are like chalk and cheese. While the elder one Tejo is deeply rooted to her Punjabi culture and wants to be a professor one day, Jasmine feels like she belongs elsewhere. She is determined, strong-willed and will make destiny bend to her will! Fiercely ambitious, all that Jasmine wants is to move to Canada and will only marry someone who make this dream a reality for her. This blazing ambition on Jasmine’s part affects the dynamics of the Sandhu family and eventually shapes their destiny. Enters Fateh (Ankit Gupta), loyal and an absolute romantic at heart, he is head over heels in love with Jasmine but does not know how to convey his feelings to her. As Tejo, Jasmine and Fateh’s lives become intertwined, so begins their journey of achieving their dreams. It remains to be seen how will Jasmin dreams pan out and what happens when Tejo gets stuck in the middle of Jasmin and Fateh’s ambitions.
