This summer, Star Bharat wants to shine a light on dowry system with the help of its upcoming new show Lakshmi Ghar Aayi. Actress Simran Pareenja is playing the lead in this show.
Sharing details about the show, Simran says, “Lakshmi Ghar Aayi is a reflection of society and the times that we live in. We intend to make India aware of the age-old system of dowry, which is still prevalent in many parts of the country. Everyone knows that dowry is illegal and immoral but they practise it. Our society has renamed it as ‘gift’ so that it sounds good. Dowry simply means that you are putting a price tag on the girl or boy and buying her or him. I hope my character of Maithali inspires others to do the right thing and be self-reliant. My character will throw light on how this age-old practice is rigid and downright regressive. Those who are still practising these should face consequences.”
