Zee TV has set trends in the shaping of television content over the past three decades. After introducing audiences to various related characters who have become the country’s most sought-after tablemates and their inspiring stories, the channel is ready to present another narrative that will break gender stereotypes. The narrative will have the audience question ancestral beliefs about what a young woman should or should not do. Zee TV’s Upcoming Primetime Drama ‘Get together’ allows viewers to enter the journey of an energetic young woman from Haryana – Meet, who, contrary to popular perception that only a son can be a ghar ka chiraag, is the ghar ‘ki’ chiraag of her family. Not only is she the sole earner, but she also breaks the social rule books of gender roles by serving as a delivery agent and generally being the “ fixer ” in each and every situation. normally expected to be a man.
Recently, it was announced that the show will feature popular TV actress Ashi Singh in the lead female role of Meet. While viewers are excited to see Ashi in a new avatar, there seems to be some more exciting news for the audience. The actor for the male lead role has also been finalized and is none other than handsome heartthrob Shagun Pandey. Also, coincidentally, her name is also Meet on the show. Meet is a rich kid from Haryanvi who is not rigid about gender roles and has no problem with women working or men helping at home. But he believes that women should see themselves in a certain way and it is the man’s responsibility to provide primarily in the home. A boy with the same principles as his father, Meet wants to make his way in the world, but he also has his way of enjoying life.
Speaking about his character and the show, Shagun Pandey said “Get together it’s a well-written concept that questions gender roles and breaks archaic stereotypes. With this program, I believe that we will be able to get people to reconsider their views when it comes to what is appropriate or inappropriate for a woman, what she should do or not do. Even today, a large majority of families only see the children of their household as the ghar ka chirag. No matter how far women have come in terms of their accomplishments, patriarchy is ingrained in many of us. I am honored to be a part of such a program where the concept of gender neutrality is seeded so organically. Unlike my personal views on the subject, my character is someone who sits on the fence regarding understanding gender roles and social constructions. While he is totally in favor of women working in the professional space, he still believes that a man should be the main breadwinner in the family. He also feels that women need to look and dress in a certain way … for viewers to see me go through a very interesting graphic on the show in terms of the evolution of the thought process. I hope my fans and supporters shower me with all their love and kindness as they always have and wish me and my team the best on this new journey. “
