Bringing a coming-of-age millennial story of familial ties, friendship and ambition, Disney+ Hotstar presents its latest family drama, Ghar Waapsi. Directed by two-time National award-winning director, Ruchir Arun, the slice-of-life drama is a light-hearted comedy that revolves around the Dwivedi household in Indore after their beloved son’s homecoming. The 6-episode long series stars Vishal Vashishtha, Akanksha Thakur, Atul Shrivastava, Vibha Chibber, Saad Bilgrami, and Anushka Kaushik. Produced by Dice Media, the series has been created by showrunner Ashwin Suresh. Vishal Vashishtha, who plays the eldest sibling in the household, shares how his unique character, penned by Tatsat Pandey and Bharat Misra, holds a mirror to the current millennial generation’s struggles and ambitions.
“A lot of people will relate to Shekhar’s character because so many of us move out of our homes to go work in big companies, in different cities. Even I moved out of my hometown to become an actor and came to Mumbai. Over the years I have gained my own experiences and made my own decisions. There was no one to make these for me. Living life on your own terms and achieving your dreams. Shekhar too goes through these challenges and grows which is what makes him so relatable to me and am sure viewers will feel it too,” said Vishal Vashishtha.
However, highlighting the difference between his real and reel self, the actor said, “Shekhar is very ambitious, he is forever on the lookout to upgrade, upscale whereas, I like to take my time to enjoy what I have achieved because I worked hard to be there. If I don’t take time to appreciate and take off right after the finish line, then I don’t celebrate my victories enough.”
