Bhagyavidhaata inspired from real-life incident..

The story line of COLORS' new show Sab Ki Jodi Wahi Banaata…Bhagyavidhaata has been inspired by a real life incident witnessed by the writer in Jharkhand..

COLORS' new show Sab Ki Jodi Wahi Banaata…Bhagyavidhaata which started on May 4th is the story of a well-educated girl Bindia who lives in Bihar. Produced by Shreya Creations, the unique show focuses on an issue that is women related starting with the victimization of males, leading to problems that are then faced by women in this complex, bizarre prevalent practice called Pakraua Vivaah.

However, not many know that the Story and Screenplay writer of the show, Raakesh Paswan was inspired to write this story based on a real-life happening which he witnessed long back in his home town, Jharkhand.

Says the Writer, "I had been to my native place Jharkhand, when I noticed wedding preparations going on at our neighbor's house. When I inquired about this with my family, they told me that the girl of the house was getting married, but it was a kind of Pakraua Vivaah, wherein the entire community knows that the girl is getting married, but the groom is not known. Only a certain few in the family know the identity of the groom, and they would kidnap the boy and get him married to the girl. I was simply surprised to see the entire family rejoice and celebrate the occasion as though all was well, and this real life incident made me to write this story".

This is the second time that Raakesh Paswan has dealt with the same subject. "In 2002-03, I had written a short series for Sahara One, titled Kadam where I had kept this issue as the base. The entire industry was so much thrilled to see such a concept that few of the big names like Anupam Kher planned to make a film on this. Fortunately or unfortunately, nobody was able to make a film, and the closest that one could come to dealing with this subject was Ajay Sinha with Ghar Ek Sapnaa. Now it feels nice that after all these years, I have again got a privilege to write about the subject", explains the writer.

Talking about the custom which is prevalent in Bihar even today the writer states, "It is unfortunate that there is a gender bias in the North. They believe in the saying, 'Ladki hona Abhishaap hai'. The ruthless dowry demands from the boys' side has given rise to this ghastly act wherein the girls' family take the boy at gun point and get him married to the girl. They leave the girl at the boy's place after issuing a stern warning to the family to keep the girl in good stead. Bhagyavidhaata is about a girl who is forced into such a marriage", he states.

The first few episodes of the show has garnered a great response especially from places like Jharkhand, Bihar etc. "We have got amazing response from people for the first few episodes, and I hope we can translate this into numbers", concludes Raakesh.

The show has new faces Richa Soni and Vishal Karwal playing the leads..

Raakesh Paswan also happens to be the Story writer of Star Plus' Hamari Devrani..

Let's now wait and watch how the show gets rated on the TRP charts…

My God! the story is based on real incident. I know dat still girl child is killed in many villages and small kids also gets married which COLORS is showng thru B.V & Na Ana Is Des Meri Lado. But girls getting married like dis, is bulshit (sry for using slang). I''m more surprise dan shock. Wat is our GOVERNMENT doing? ( BIG QUESTION!)

first of all must say writer and producers guts to show something different from norm when all audiance is more looking for fantasy and romance and other chocolaty stuff..........and color is always stand out with their efforts to bring social isseu out and now forcing other chanel to do so that is the reason SP closed many old drama and started many new with different story line .....time is changing as well people''s taste is .........

In the West its called gunshot wedding. LOL
It happens when a boy dumps a girl after getting her pregnant and then the girl''s dad forces him to marry her at gunpoint.
But this is even more bizarre but funny and justified in a way.
When evil practice of dowry still lingers, this is a good way to circumvent it. LOL

This is exactley same as Ghar Ek Sapna, It''s Plot were same, But to me Colors are doing way too Much Social Concept Shows, I mean How Long can they Run a show based on Social Issues ?? Huh, They have to end one day but early ..

SO Best of Luck to the team but Shreya''s Creations always has problems with channels .. lol
