Kyun Utthe Dil Chhod Aaye star Shagun Pandey roped in for the upcoming show Meet. The actor will be playing the titular character in the show, where he will be seen as rich Haryanvi boy who is not rigid about gender roles and has no issues with women working or men helping out at home.
Talking about his character and the show, Shagun shares, “Meet is a well written concept that questions gender roles and breaks archaic stereotypes. With this show, I believe we will be able to make people rethink their views when it comes to what is appropriate or inappropriate for a woman, what she should do or not do. No matter how far women have come today in terms of their achievements, patriarchy is ingrained in a lot of us.”
“I’m honoured to be a part of such a show where the concept of gender neutrality is seeded in so organically. Unlike my personal views on the subject, my character is someone who sits on the fence with regards to understanding gender roles and social constructs. He also feels women should look and dress a certain way so viewers will see me go through a very interesting graph on the show in terms of evolving one’s thought process.”
Along with Shagun, Meet will also feature Ashi Singh as the female lead in the show.
