Class politics unveiled
Colors will air two new prime time fiction shows  — Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam and Laagi Tujhse Lagan. While Yeh Pyaar Na Hoga Kam is a love story set against the background of India’s obsession with caste system and class politics; Laagi Tujhse Lagan is the story of a housemaid Nakusha, who has to live her life behind a veil of ugliness in order to protect her virtue.
Although love stories, both stories provide glimpses of two drastically different worlds.
While the former is set in Lucknow, the heartland of India where inter-caste relationships and marriages are still frowned upon; the latter is set in a fictional Mumbai slum Sagar Kutir and highlights the plight of the have nots who dot the city’s filthy pavements.
Both these shows will debut on the channel on December 28 between 9 pm and 10 pm and will be telecast on all weekdays.
