A special session was organised recently to mark the beginning of Star Jalsha’s new show Sreemoyee at Sudha Hall, Kolkata.
Actress Indrani Halder who is the protagonist of the serial, director Leena Gangopadhyay, creative director and writer Sarmishtha Chakrabarti, who is also a psychiatrist associated with Apollo Hospital, Columbia Asia Hospital and Ramakrishna Mission Seva Pratishthan, graced the event.
Sreemoyee is the story of an ordinary homemaker who will challenge the orthodoxy and fight for her dreams and desires.
Promotional trailers were shown in the session which stirred the interest of the audience. It was a glimpse into several households which do not recognise the woman’s worth.
Speaking on the need to recognise the efforts of a woman, Chakrabarti said, “A household where the husband and the wife share a bond of equality and respect will be a household filled with happiness. The household is the first threshold where children learn from their parents and when they see the father treating the mother with respect, they imbibe that and grow up to be respectful towards women themselves.”
Calling every woman a Sreemoyee, Halder said, “As a working professional, I have met different women, some of who live in small villages. They live an arduous life and have to sacrifice so much every single day. They toil endlessly without complaining. They have little pleasures and are happy with the small enjoyments of life.”
The show is aimed at every woman who has had to face barriers in her life. Sreemoyee’s story is the story of all women and as the show will progress, the protagonist will demand respect and will fight for her dreams. This will serve as a message for the countless women watching the show. Gangopadhyay remarked that this show was written based on her own experience as a woman and how she was able to gather similar experiences from women around her.
