Chandigarh 14th September:- COLORS’ popular show Shakti…AstitvaKeEhsaasKii, through its bold concept and storyline, has chronicled the life of a transgender, Saumya (Rubina Dilaik) and her story of self-discovery and self-acceptance. While Saumya faces severe existential crisis and is being ripped apart by her family and the kinnar community, her perplexed husband Harman’s (Vivian Dsena) dream of a happy married life comes crashing down. And as Harman’s life comes to a standstill, the show is all set to take an interesting turn. To give a sneak peek to the audience and share his experience of working on the show, actor Vivian Dsena aka Harman was in Chandigarh today. Vivian Dsena also visited the Chhapar Mela for a grand celebration at the ‘COLORS Rajj Ke’ event where he interacted with the show’s fans and audiences. Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii airs every Monday toFriday at 8:00 PM on COLORS.
Speaking about his visit to Chandigarh, Vivian Dsena said that Harman’s role is unlike any other character he has played in the past; the layers of his personality will be revealed to viewers slowly and steadily. First, he was shown to be atypical Punjabi munda, then a responsible husband and now he will go on to become Saumya’s savior and support system. He is extremely happy to be a part of a landmark show like Shakti..Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii which showcases trials and tribulations of the transgender community in a mature manner. He would like to thank all our viewers for their good wishes and endless support. Through Harman’s character, He has learned about the nuances of Punjabi culture and he is looking forward to experiencing it further during my visit to the city.
Since its launch, Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Kii has entertained viewers with its impactful storyline showcasing Saumya’s hardships as she realizes and grapples to come to term with her reality of being a eunuch. The show traces the plightof the third gender community through Saumya’s eyes and highlights struggles of love and acceptance from her family and husband Harman. Despite her attempts to lead a normal life, Saumya’s father Maninder (Ayub Khan) and mother-in-law Preeto (Kamya Punjabi) have now joined hands and have sent her off to live with the kinnar community. While Harman first renounces Saumya and her identity, he is slowly starting to understand her value in his life, deciding to free her from all the troubles and judgments.
As Saumya’s journey continues, she will be asked to lead her life as per the practices of a kinnar and earn her daily wages by dancing at celebratory functions. However, Saumya will refuse to follow these duties and end up getting punished for breaking the community’s rules. But she does not lose hope and will attempt to get in touch with Harman, but her call will go unanswered. Harman, on the other hand, will be on a mission to trace Saumya’s whereabouts and will notice a missed call on his cell phone. Anticipating that the call might be from Saumya, Harman will investigate the number and trace the call to Bhatinda. He will inform Saumya’s younger sister, Surbhi (Roshni Sahota) about it and both will rush to Bhatinda in search of Saumya. Will Harman and Surbhi succeed in saving Saumya from the clutches of the kinnar clan or will they lose her to the community forever?
