Tanvi Dogra takes the fasting route to essay devotee’s role in &TV’s Santoshi Maa- Sunaye Vrat Kathayein

The concept of fasting has majorly been driven by religious values but with time, it has become widely popular for various health benefits across the globe. While spiritual connection might be one of the reasons to consider, the health factor behind this route has often been the highlight for many to opt for this lifestyle. Actress Tanvi Dogra who has played varied roles across television is a new member to the regular fasting club and is on her ‘game on’ mode to try the intermittent fasting route. Soon to essay an ardent Santoshi Maa devotee’s character in &TV’s new socio-mythological fiction, Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, Tanvi says that taking up the challenge of fasting is one of the ways for prepping for her character.

A spiritual person at heart, Tanvi has been keeping an occasional fast for religious reasons since the last 2 years. Having heard of the various health benefactors, the actress decided to challenge herself to keeping regular fasts, consuming just a single wholesome meal during the day. Busting the various myths surrounding fasting, Tanvi said, “The biggest myth I have heard is that fasting is as good as starving and I feel that’s a misconception. To me, fasting is not just keeping yourself away from food but also mentally keeping your mind pure and away from negativity. It is a process of detoxifying yourself by opening one’s mind to fresh and positive thoughts.”

Actress Tanvi DograSpeaking about a routine she has developed, Tanvi said, “I have recently started intermittent fasting regularly where I begin my day by meditating for 10 minutes. During the entire day, I literally carry a bottle of water with me and keep drinking plenty of water to keep myself hydrated. Because I shoot for long hours, I decided to keep 1 meal of my day during lunch where I eat a healthy, nutritious and filling meal that would keep me for going for a while.” Adding further about her reason to begin, Tanvi said, “Initially I had slight apprehensions before stepping into this character primarily because I was unsure of how to really depict the spiritual person within me. Following the fasting norms somewhere helps me delve into the skin of the character while the meditation helps me a maintain the spiritual connection. It’s a challenge which I hope to excel in.”

Known as the Goddess of love, peace, sacrifice, goodwill, and contentment, Santoshi Maa possesses many mystical powers and is believed to spend most of her time on earth where she helps her devotees bring order to their disorder. Bringing back the magic with a new tale on how Santoshi Maa instills the true reasons and beliefs behind fasting and proper ways of worshiping, &TV is set to launch its new socio-mythology show Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein that conveys a strong message of ultimate triumph for the sincerely devoted.

With the unprecedented success of Santoshi Maa launched in 2015 on &TV, the channel is yet again happy to bring to the viewers a socio-mythology show titled – Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, new narrative set to focus on a completely different aspect of Vrat Kathayein, that hasn’t been explored before. Well known actress Gracy Singh is known as an artist and individual who has a sweet, gracious and poised demeanour and has successfully mesmerised audiences across Television as well as Bollywood industry overtime and continues to do so even today. Extremely mindful of the kind of roles she has taken up over the years, Gracy will now, once again be seen returning to the television screen with the role of Santoshi Maa in &TV’s offering.

Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein brings forth a strong theme and originates from Maa instilling the true purpose and beliefs behind fasting and proper ways of worshiping in order to fulfil wishes. Through Santoshi Maa, the show will present diverse beliefs and practices behind the emergence of every vrat (fasting), stating the proper means to worship to attain satisfaction. Talking about taking up the divine role once again Gracy shared, “Fans and well-wishers keep asking me the reason I take up only select roles when I am constantly offered various roles. Well, the reason is that with every character, I look for something deep that I can connect with on a personal level. The character of Maa Santoshi in my first stint with &TV’s Jai Santoshi Maa was extremely fulfilling for me and to bring out the essence once again is surreal. Playing a divine character isn’t easy, but there’s an inexplainable positivity that it brings along. With Santoshi Maa – Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, I hope the viewers will appreciate the effort each one of us puts in.”

Further adding Gracy said, “My affinity towards Maa Santoshi is what brings me back to the character, and I couldn’t be more happier accepting this. The show will focus on the importance of Vrats in our lives and how it can be used as a weapon to fight all our troubles and adversities”.

Celebrating the innate divinity and showcasing the power of Vrats through a beautiful narrative, the show is all set to take the audience on a journey of spiritual satisfaction.
