SonyTV’s ‘Punyashlok Ahilyabai’ highlights an empowering initiative addressed by Devi Ahilyabai with ‘Dattak Vidhan’
Devi Ahilyabai Holkar’s accomplishments, wisdom and courage have been an inspiration for generations to come. Celebrating Ahilyabai’s life journey, Sony Entertainment Television’s Punyashlok Ahilyabai, a historical magnum opus takes us through the life journey of the queen who not only brought peace and prosperity with her impartiality but also proved that one becomes great not by gender or birth but by deeds. With the unwavering support of her father-in-law ‘Malhar Rao Holkar’, Ahilyabai Holkar paved the path for women rights, education and empowerment.
The upcoming episodes in Punyashlok Ahilyabai will shed light on ‘Dattak Vidhan Adhyay’ an important milestone in Ahilyabai’s journey. The upcoming track promises to keep audiences intrigued as Ahilyabai, a woman ahead of her time, encourages a widowed woman to adopt a child in an era when adoption was frowned upon.
Sharing her perspective, actress Aetasha Sansgiri who portrays the role of Ahilyabai in the show said “Ahilyabai Holkar has brought about several revolutionary and historic changes in society, particularly for women and I am only learning and growing as a woman, having got an opportunity to closely follow her life’s journey and milestones. She is an incredible role model for all women irrespective of the chronology. While there are many milestones in her journey that are inspiring, one that particularly moved me was the fact that she helped childless widows retain their dignity within their family and the society by adopting a child. In the upcoming episodes, this very milestone has been beautiful brought to life and I hope the audience understands the larger impact that this made on our society.”
