Bringing forth another hard-hitting concept, COLORS’ upcoming show Molkki outlines a prevalent custom in Haryana. Wherein due to the skewed sex ratio, ‘Dulhan’ is bought by people in exchange for money. Molkki will see newbie television actor Priyal Mahajan play the leading role as Purvi and Amar Upadhyay will play Virender.
Molkki is the story of a 18-year-old Purvi, who hails from a small village in Uttar Pradesh. As a part of the bride buying custom, without her knowledge she is married off to a widower twice her age, Virender, a middle-aged man who owns vast lands and is the Sarpanch of the village.
Purvi, played by Payal Mahajan, is a responsible girl who has a heart of gold and fights all her battles with dignity
Commenting on her look, Priyal Mahajan aka Purvi says, “I am in love with the attire which I am wearing for the wedding sequence in my upcoming show on COLORS, Molkki. The lehenga which I am wearing in the show has some very intricate and beautiful golden embroidery work done on it. Each and every single piece of jewellery that I am wearing has been carefully chosen and looks very elegant. While the costume and dress look very heavy, it’s actually very light. As a girl, I always wanted to wear something so elaborate and graceful, and I am glad that I got a chance to see myself in this dress.”
Meanwhile, Amar Upadhyay who plays the character of Thakur Virender Pratap Singh shares, “My wedding look in Molkki is quite regal and majestic. Since I play Thakur Virender Pratap Singh on the show who is a wealthy sarpanch from Haryana, the look had to denote a sense of power which it effectively does. The look has come out very well and I am sure that the viewers will love it.”
The Molkki universe is filled with several interesting characters. They will not only drive the story forward but also present newer challenges that Purvi will face head-on and keep the viewers intrigued. Molkki also stars Supriya Shukla and Abhhay Bhaargava in pivotal roles.
