The story of the soap opera deals with the problem of new-age dowry system in India and how a family looks for a working lady for their son, who can help her in-laws financially post marriage.
“I have portrayed a mix of characters ranging from those with grey shades to positive roles, so it was a challenge for me to play the rather subdued, understated character of Dev in this show,” Abhishek said in a statement.
Talking about his character, he said: “Dev is an introvert. He does not express his feelings easily, always puts forth his family’s needs before his own personal interests. I’ve worked on my demeanor and body language to capture the essence of my character perfectly.”
‘Service Wali Bahu’ is a very unique subject and every character has been well etched out. I am sure our attempt to curb this unhealthy practice by creating awareness through this show will be appreciated.”
Kratika will be seen essaying the role of Payal Rai in the show.
‘Service Wali Bahu’ will be aired on Zee TV.
