The new year will unfold with a periodic drama “Punyashlok Ahilyabai” by Sony Entertainment Television, bringing forth one of the most iconic and powerful stories of none other than the legendary Ahilyabai Holkar.
The new historical tale revolving around the journey of Ahilyabai Holkar, who challenged the 18th century societal norms banishing the boundaries and thereby paving way for a new era of women empowerment. Popular Marathi actress Snehalta Vasaikar will be playing the role of the legendary Ahilyabai Holkar’s mother-in-law, Gautamabai. Known for her prolific performances on screen before, she seems to be a perfect fit for the role.
On essaying the role of Malhar Rao’s wife, Snehalta Vasaikar says, “It’s a great opportunity for me to be playing the role of Gautamabai. I am a mother myself, so I can understand her perspective, her love for her son Khande Rao, and her need to protect him. It’s interesting for an actor to essay such a role. Sharing the screen with such talented actors encourages me to strive to deliver my best. Ahilyabai has been an inspiration to many and playing the role of her mother-in-law is going to be challenging yet exciting. I look forward to this enthralling experience. Moreover, I am personally fond of period dramas and historic show as they present such dynamic stories and they have so much to offer to the audience.”
