Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, it comes with a mother. This holds true for any child especially a daughter. A daughter always sees a role model, a friend and a confidant in her mother. But can this work the other way around? Can a mother find inspiration in her daughter and turn to her for life lessons? Bringing forth one such mother-daughter duo, Babita a.k.a Babes and Mini, Sony Entertainment Television is all set to present Patiala Babes – a heartwarming journey where the daughter not only gives wings to her mother but helps her take the leap of faith. Produced by Katha Kottage Productions, starring Paridhi Sharma as Babes and Ashnoor Kaur as Mini, the show will premiere on 27th November and will air every Mon-Fri at 9:00PM only on Sony Entertainment Television.
Set against the backdrop of Punjab, Babita a.k.a. Babes, is an ideal home-maker who feels everything is perfect in her life. But is it really true or is she living a life of denial? Babes, who usually forgets her own self, her aspirations and her dreams, whilst managing her relationships, draws strength from her daughter, Mini. On the other hand, her daughter Mini, an enterprising teenager, is wise beyond her age and always looks out for Babes and encourages her to try new things. Will Mini be able to push Babes out of her comfort zone and rise above the odds? Or, will Babes succumb to her own inhibitions?
With an ensemble cast that includes actors like Hunar Gandhi, Anirudh Dave, Bhaujeet Dudan, Poonam Sarnaik, Anup Puri and Mohit Hiranandani, the show is all set to hit the small screen soon.
Patiala Babes is an ode to all the mothers and Sony Entertainment Television celebrates this with #MaaYouCanDoIt challenge. All the daughters who are or can be catalyst to their mothers’ growth, can show their support by sharing their mother’s journey of transformation in the form of a video on social media platforms by using the hashtag #MaaYouCanDoIt and tagging @SonyTVOfficial on Instagram; @SonyTelevision on Facebook and @SonyTV on Twitter.

It’s never too late to realize your dreams and it holds true for all mothers as well. A daughter helping her mother reclaim her identity is not just heartwarming and makes for great content. . With Patiala Babes we want to reach out to our viewers with a mother-daughter journey and make it more inclusive for family viewing. We are happy to have associated with Katha Kottage Productions for this show for the simplicity with which they have woven the narrative.

A show like Patiala Babes has universal resonance because of the intricate mother-daughter relationship. This in turn gave us the leeway to engage with our audience in an interesting manner. The #MaaYouCanDoIt challenge will not only encourage and involve the audience to celebrate their individual relationships but also be a part of the thematic journey of the show.

We are thankful to SET for giving us a platform and wings to fly. Differentiated characters with depth and relatability is what we believe in and our synergies match with Sony on this front. I am certain Babes and Mini will make their way into every household and inspire many.
I am feeling very happy and excited to face the camera once again after a long gap. Acting is my passion and it feels good to live it. Initially, I was bit apprehensive as I had to play a mother’s role. But, when I sat for the narration and heard the story, I was completely sold on the relationship that the character has with her daughter. I am glad to have had the opportunity to portray Babes.
I am excited to be part of Patiala Babes. This show has redefined my relationship with my own mother in many ways. As children we tend to take our parents for granted without realizing the fact that since their world revolves around us, they are more dependent on us. I am proud to say #MaaYouCanDoIt to all the mothers out there. Looking forward to seeing many transformational videos on social media.
Be a part of Babes and Mini’s journey on Patiala Babes starting 27th November every Monday to Friday at 9:00 PM only on Sony Entertainment Television!
