Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa are all set to reunite for Disney+ Hotstar’s Home Shanti. The show’s trailer was released on Monday. Directed by Aakanksha Dua, Home Shanti is a family drama that revolves around the Joshi family’s long-held dream of first-time homeownership. In the show, Supriya Pathak will play the role of Sarla Joshi, a retired public school deputy principal. While Manoj Pahwa will try the role of her husband. The series also stars rookie actors Chakori Dwivedi and Poojan Chhabra as the new generation of Joshis.
The trailer features how the Joshis encounter a dilemma when their matriarch, Sarla Joshi, decides to voluntarily retire from her job at a government school instead of accepting a transfer across the country. The Dehradun-based family are now struggling to find a home following short notice to leave their comfortable government-assigned accommodation where they have resided for 20 years. With little time to leave their gift, the family of four embarked on the arduous quest of building a new home on a small piece of ancestral land. However, they soon begin to face several challenges. From designing the house to building it, the Joshis realize that building a house is not easy.
Speaking about the show, Supriya Pathak said, “Home Shanti is a heartfelt family drama that makes you step back and take note of those little intimacies shared in a family. The relatability factor of this drama is very high because we all know families who dream of owning a home one day. I had an absolute gala time working on this series, especially reviving Manoj and my chemistry had me super excited. Sometimes the whole thing looked like an extension of a family.
Meanwhile, Manoj Pahwa also talked about the show and explained why viewers should watch it. “I am extremely proud to be part of a special project like Home Shanti. I fell in love with the series story of heartfelt and endearing drama. Viewers can expect a fun and easy watch that touches their hearts with its simple story and even simpler characters. However, playing these simple characters is what motivates me as an actor. Returning to the sets with Supirya ji was like gliding through comfortable waters for me. I have to applaud the new talent as well as they’ve been such an easy herd to work with and laugh with. I can’t wait to see how the audience reacts to the show,” he said.
Home Shanti will stream on Disney+ Hotstar starting May 6.
