ZEE TV: Suhasi Dhami returns as the ‘Housewife’!


Suhasi Dhami

Tiffin for hubby.  Homework with the kids. Picking and dropping them off at school. Scolding the dhobi for late deliveries. Papa‘ s High BP pills on time. Bargaining with the grocer. Supervising the bai’s work. Handling the Bank accounts. Maa ji’s special diabetes food. She pulls off all this and more in a day … yet you think it’s only you who deal with a “To-Do” list, deadlines and pressure because you go to office and she sits at home! Her tasks probably outnumber yours. But being a housewife is NOT a job, just because she doesn’t bring home a paycheck?

It’s time to give that notion a re-think! Waking viewers up to the fact that being a housewife is not just a respectable choice but a challenging job that calls for resourcefulness, creativity and tact is Zee TV’s latest primetime show ‘Housewife hai … Sab Jaanti Hai’. In fact, the show captures how housewives can teach even the world’s biggest CEOs the art of multi-tasking! Set in Allahabad, the show features Sona, a journalist who consciously decides to leave her job and be a housewife on getting married. The show will explore how she applies her intelligence to being a smart housewife, plays her cards well and sets an otherwise dysfunctional family back on track!         

The show marks the exciting comeback of the beautiful Suhasi Dhami who shot to fame and ruled millions of hearts as Aabha in Zee TV’s Yahaaan Main Ghar Ghar Kheli. Playing a feisty and spunky Sona will be quite a departure for the actress from her previous portrayal of the Rajshri-style idealistic beti. The veteran film and television actress Himani Shivpuri will be seen as her greedy, self-centered, dominating mother-in-law, ever brimming with snide remarks and sarcasm.   

Speaking of her new role, Suhasi said, “I am extremely glad to be back on Zee TV with my role of Sona in Housewife Hai … Sab Jaanti Hai. The very premise of the show excites me as I feel strongly about the subject. It’s sad how a lot of people say – Oh, she doesn’t do anything, she’s a housewife! I find that statement ridiculous because people fail to realize the mountains most housewives move in the course of an average day. Households that run like well-oiled machinery will come to a standstill and families will fall apart if these hardworking women stop doing the job they do! Yet, they are constantly made to feel like they do not make a significant contribution. I am extremely glad to be a part of a show that highlights the dignity that exists in being a housewife and gives them their due respect.”

The show is produced by Gulshan Sachdeva and will shortly premiere on Zee TV.
