COLORS’ upcoming social drama 'Doree' has incited curiosity among television audiences with its thought-provoking promos. The show traces the story of a six-year-old girl named Doree, who lives with her foster father, Ganga Prasad (role essayed by Amar Upadhyay) in the Bunkar mohalla, Varanasi. While Ganga Prasad counts himself lucky to have a daughter, the ruler of Varanasi’s handloom empire, Kailashi Devi Thakur, deems daughters as unworthy. In this world steeped in discrimination, will Doree break the shackles of patriarchy? Set against the backdrop of Varanasi, the makers decided to shoot a few sequences in the holy city of Varanasi.
Showcasing his versatility, Amar Upadhyay, who has mostly essayed the roles of scions of well-to-do families, will be seen stepping into the shoes of a humble man for the first time. The offering gave the actor a chance to revisit his memories of Varanasi, experience new adventures and seek blessings at Kashi Vishwanath Temple.
Talking about his tryst with Varanasi, Amar Upadhyay says, “Returning to Varanasi after many years was an incredibly moving experience for me. Varanasi is like a time capsule with this magical charm that just pulls the visitors in. Playing Ganga Prasad, a character who's so intertwined with the spirit of the holy city, was a special experience. I explored the streets of Varanasi and tried some lip-smacking delicacies and chaat with my cast mates. We also sought blessings at Kashi Vishwanath Temple for the show. To all my fans out there waiting to see me as Ganga Prasad, your support means the world to me.”
Stay tuned to ’Doree’ premiering on 6th November at 9:00 pm every Monday to Friday only on COLORS.
