Nagpur: Half is certainly the buzzword in relationships, at least on the screen! Post ‘Half Girlfriend’ on celluloid, here comes a half-tagged show on small screen. With the concept of a relationship which is not complete but half &TV is coming up with its new TV show ‘Half Marriage’ to be aired from 25th September every Monday to Friday at 7:30 pm. To further talk about the storyline and concept of the show, the lead actors Priyanka Purohit and Tarun Mahilani, who are playing the roles of Arjun and Chandni respectively, visited Nagpur on Saturday.
Set against the culturally rich landscape of Kanpur, Half Marriage recounts the entangled story of starkly different personalities – Arjun, a middle-class boy who often gets into trouble due to his righteous behaviour and Chandni, born to a rich politician who has immense love and respect for her father Vanraj Kanojia (Satyajit Sharma). While Arjun fights against the injustice that prevails in the political scenario, Chandni contends a war against the one tarnishing her father’s image.
As the story progresses, the two develop immense hatred towards each other and Vanraj Kanojia’s political aspirations lead to plotting of this forced marriage. What follows next is Arjun and Chandni’s dilemma to stay married and for the audience to witness …yeh shaadi jung layegi…yeh shaadi rang layegi!
During their visit to Nagpur both Priyanka Purohit and Tarun Mahilani talked to Nagpur Today and shared their point of views over such a half relationship while also detailing about their respective characters.
Commenting on portraying Arjun’s character, Tarun Mahilani said, “Half Marriage highlights the harsh reality of forced marriages. As an artist, I always thrive to play a challenging role and I am glad that I got the opportunity to portray Arjun and be part of such an unusual concept.’’
Adding further, Priyanka Purohit, essaying the role of Chandni, said, “Born with a silver spoon, Chandini looks up to her father as a godlike figure who cannot do any wrong. Her life is a big illusion surrounded by fake relations that change as she is married to a middle-class boy Arjun. With Half Marriage, I kick start my acting career as a lead with such a unique concept and I look forward to a great association with &TV.’’
