Colors Gujaratis’ new show on subtle take on beauty “Maru Mann Mohi Gayu”


Mumbai, 24th September 2021: Winning the hearts of the audience in Gujarat, COLORS Gujarati once again brings a unique (Anokhi) story of an chubby girl in Maru Mann Mohi Gayu”. The show narrates the story of an optimistic and confident girl Anokhi who becomes the butt of ridicule because she is obese. Tracing the journey of this chubby girl played by Dhwani Upadhyay the show premieres from 27th September, Monday- Saturday, 7.30 pm only on COLORS Gujarati. Show is produced by Kalp Media.

An adaptation of COLORS Marathi’s popular show, Sundara Manamadhye Bharali, the show tries to break loose from the shackles of traditional beauty. Anokhi is the perfect girl who is great at cooking, is a great friend, a perfect daughter and tries to keep everyone happy. But is that enough for someone to be loved or will the society be able to see beyond the size? Abhay played by Harshil Desai has a well fitted body and has a dream of opening his own gym. Together they are like fire and ice and have different views about marriage. 

Commenting on the concept of the show, Darshil Bhatt, Programming Head, Colors Gujarati said, “Maru Mann Mohi Gayu beautifully captures the rigid definitions of beauty and shape through the journey of Anokhi. Placing the central focus on an overweight lady is unconventional enough to begin with, and Dhwani Upadhyay meets the challenge by owning every moment. The show brings together exceptionally strong characters, outstanding chemistry and an extremely interesting storyline.”

The story is sure to change the so-called definitions of beauty. Inspite of being a near perfect girl she gets rejected umpteen number of times because of her size and appearance. Will she be bogged down by the fact that love could, heartbreakingly, be out of her reach? Or will she get someone in her life who will not judge her by her size but by her qualities?

Catch this beautiful story, which is a reality for many, Maru Mann Mohi Gayu starting 27th September, Monday- Saturday, 7.30 pm only on COLORS Gujarati!!
