Not many people know that Anurag is planning to launch the DVD of his series on Sony. "Yes he is all set to release DVD which will be of four hours. He has planned everything in advance," says Shilpa.
Rajuben is about Rajshree's journey, who being a daughter of a Gandhi fundamentalist, strays from his disciplinarian parentage and gets emotionally involved with Rohit, an underworld upstart, and goes to lead an entire gang in underworld.
Elaborating on her character Shilpa quips, "Rajuben is brilliant and the show portrays the journey of the girl. Whenever I get into her character, I don't feel like coming out of it. All I can say is that this is a story of every woman, and over here I'm just trying to give her the face."
"The journey also depicts the various men in her life, her father, husband and son. Basically, the story talks about the girl's life from the age of 20 to 50. We are shooting for it daily," she adds further.
