STAR Plus is all set for the launch of its new primetime show Ikyawann starting tonight, starring popular TV actors Prachi Tehlan and Namish Taneja in lead roles. Prachi will be seen playing the role of Susheel Parekh, a young girl who bears boy-like mannerisms and is hence considered #NotShaadiMaterial by the society.
The show delves in the life of Susheel who has been brought up by four men in her family. Even though she is often put down for having a boy-like demeanour, Susheel is not the one to shy away from loving herself for the way she is.
Saluting her spirit are Bollywood’s renowned personalities Richa Chaddha and VJ Bani who were seen expressing their views about being #NotShaadiMaterial and still being happy the way they are on social media.
Talking about the response from the fraternity over Susheel’s ‘always love yourself’ attitude, Prachi Tehlan said, “Susheel’s character gives out a message to every girl out there to love herself for the way she is and never get bogged down by the society. We are all unique in our own way and should take that in our stride and move forward in life. Susheel’s biggest strength is the fact that she has an extremely strong upbringing from her 4 fathers who have taught her to not pay attention to what the society thinks of her and be comfortable in her own skin. I am glad that celebrities like Richa and Bani who are all strong women in our fraternity support Susheel’s ideology.”
