ZEE5, India’s largest homegrown OTT platform, has launched many flagship Original series which went on to become popular and iconic – such as Abhay, Rangbaaz, Sunflower, among others. Next up is Original series, Sutliyan, a family drama starring Ayesha Raza, Shiv Pandit, Vivaan Shah, and Plabita Borthakur in pivotal roles. While the cast and crew have commenced shoot, the series will premiere later this year.
‘Sutliyan’ is a heartwarming story of a family where the adult children return to their family home in Bhopal, the city where they grew up, weeks before Diwali. As they meet after years, trying to come to terms with situations, they are burdened with emotional baggage from the past and unresolved conflicts in relationships as they undergo the challenging, yet the necessary journey of emotional and spiritual cleansing.
Helmed by Shree Narrayan Singh and produced by Manor Rama Pictures, Sutliyan is a slice of life, family drama with deep-seated emotional turmoil and laced with lighthearted humor and sibling camaraderie.
Manish Kalra, Chief Business Officer, ZEE5 India said, “As the country’s largest homegrown digital streaming platform, it is our constant endeavour to provide fresh and relatable stories from our heartland. With Sutliyan, we aim to offer a heart-warming, slice of life family drama which will make you laugh, cry and reunite with your family”.
Nimisha Pandey, Head, Hindi Originals, ZEE5 said, “Sutliyan is a touching tale of a family with complex inter-personal relationships. This story will not only tug at your heartstrings, but also make you cherish the little moments spent with loved ones. At ZEE5, we are passionate about getting you stories that reflect a myriad of emotions. The simplicity of this story is its most beautiful part. It is a story that instils hope and restores your faith in goodness – we all could do with content like that”.
Director Shree Narrayan Singh said, “I was attracted to this series for one reason – nowadays where emotions in personal life are expressed through emojis, here is a show which was real, and which makes you want to pick up the phone and call your mom or book a ticket home”.
Producers Karan Raj Kohli and Viraj Kapur, Manor Rama Pictures said, “Set in a ‘glass-half-full’ post-covid world, Sutliyan is a story of homecoming with ‘threads’ unravelling over Diwali. With this nostalgic series, we want to remind our audiences that ‘home is where the heart always is.’ If we’re able to do that as producers, we’re home”.
