Colors presents a heartfelt story of two sisters in its new show ‘Durga Aur Charu’

Bondita and Anirudh Roy Chowdhary’s legacy continues thanks to their daughters in Colors’ “Durga Aur Charu.” Durga is her mother’s shadow, and Charu is her spirit.

The programme follows the lives of two sisters who are related by blood but who have very different upbringings as a result of being split up when they were young. The program, which is made by Shashi Sumeet Productions, will debut on December 12 and air every day at 8:30 p.m. For the lead roles as two sisters, Durga and Charu, respectively, the channel has cast actors Aurra Bhatnagar and Vaishnavi Prajapati.

Set in the pre- and post-Independence era, ‘Durga Aur Charu’ chronicles the story of Durga (Aurra Bhatnagar), a meek and pessimistic girl and her street-smart elder sister Charu (Vaishnavi Prajapati). The two sisters are living apart oblivious to each other’s existence. They are different as chalk and cheese owing to their distinct upbringing. While Durga is reticent, suppressed, and great at academics, her sister Charu is fierce, outspoken and earning her livelihood by performing acrobatics. The former is adopted by wealthy parents and the latter is brought up by the con artists. How long will the two remain unaware of each other?

Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Hindi Mass Entertainment, Viacom18, says, “Delivering stories that strike a chord with our viewers has always been our focus at COLORS. Such was the story of Barrister Babu, a show that enjoyed incredible success and love from the audience. Continuing its legacy, our new fiction show Durga Aur Charu traces the heartfelt journey of Bondita and Anirudh’s daughters who are raised in two different environments resulting in having contrasting personalities. As we present a fresh chapter and the continuation of the popular show, we hope to receive the same love and appreciation with Durga and Charu.” 

Producer Shashi Mittal says, “Durga aur Charu is a period drama set during the British colonial era which traces the journey of two siblings who not only lose their parents but also get separated at a young age. But eventually destiny brings them together and their relationship is tested through several emotional adversaries. With our shows, we always aim to deal with various themes which impact our societal thinking in some way or the other. Our association with COLORS has been a fruitful one, we have had the opportunity to work with the best team with creative freedom, and we hope that with ‘Durga Aur Charu’, we deliver yet another compelling story to the viewers.”
