Director, Debidas Bhattacharjee said “The serials focusing on the quarrels and fights of mother-in-laws and their daughter-in-laws have been going on for many years now. It has reached a stagnation point. I want to change the habit of the viewers with this serial. There is love and affection between the mother-in-law and her daughter-in-law. This will be a different kind of treatment. People will have a good time laughing. We want to bring back laughter in the lives of the people for half an hour”.

Padmabati is a modern mother-in-law. She wears various dresses herself and gives space to her son and daughter-in-law. The audience will enjoy this character”.
