Actor Sanjay Suri will play actress Karisma Kapoor’s on-screen husband in Mentalhood, an ALTBalaji web series revolving around the crazy ride of motherhood.
On playing the character of Anmol Kapoor in the upcoming show, Sanjay said, "Anmol is a scientist from Kanpur. Raised as the only son, he was well sheltered and pampered by his parents. He also seems lucky in a way where he marries the first girl he kissed, who was Miss Kanpur.”
"He comes across as a very balanced and sorted person with a great temperament. He and his wife are on the same page. They support and are still confined to each other. Meira (Kapoor; Karisma’s character) is still his go-to person for every decision and I am really looking forward to this web series," he added.
Talking about the series, Karisma earlier told IANS, "The entire show is based on motherhood, the ups and downs, high and lows and all the various emotions of being a mom."
On her character, she said, "She is a mom, who has a blog where she shares her emotions. Even though she is old fashioned, she is today's woman."
Notably, this is Karisma’s first project on a digital platform. On foraying into the web space, she said, "I have been lucky enough to have such a wonderful career and I have done a variety of roles. This is something different for me...a different platform. I have been a radio jockey also. I like trying out different things."
Directed by Karishma Kohli, Mentalhood is set to stream later this year.

#EktaKapoor's #New #DigitalShow "#Mentalhood" Is Centered On The Various Facets Of Being A #Mother ... Ekta Kapoor is a #powerful personality, with a Midas touch when it comes to creating content – whether it is for #television, #films and now even #webseries. Earlier this year, she also embraced #motherhood with her son Ravie, who came into this world via surrogacy. The latest show to hit her online subscription platform @altbalaji is “Mentalhood” and it comes as no surprise that inspired by the turn of events in her personal life, it is based on motherhood, different types of #mothers and all the trials and tribulations they go through. However, Ekta clarifies that this show was conceptualized long before she decided to become a mother, almost 7 years ago. While writing the show and brainstorming with her creative team, they thought about how the popular perception is that motherhood is perfect, and especially in Indian scenarios how it is believed that the day a child is born a mother is also born, which is not always true. There are often unreasonable expectations from new mothers, which take them years to overcome. The show will be exploring all these dilemmas, while also talking about topics like bullying, gender fluidity, good-touch/bad-touch, etc. The show has a ensemble cast of some of the most #talented #actors – headlines by @therealkarismakapoor who makes her web-series debut as the “mental” mom, @sandymridul as the “momzilla”, #ShilpaShukla as the “workaholic” mom, @tillotamashome as the “pushover” mom and @shru2kill as the “boho” mom. We also have representation of the #fathers by @thedinomorea , who plays the role of a “stay-at-home” dad. For Ekta Kapoor, this show is even more #special as she now identifies with a lot of the content that has gone into creating it. We’re really looking forward to this one! ... 📷 via @ektaravikapoor ... 📌Read more - https://www.momspresso.com/parenting/article/ekta-kapoor-s-new-digital-show-mentalhood-is-centered-on-the-various-facets-of-being-a-mother ... #WhatMumsAreTalkingAbout #Instanews #News #Momspresso #newwebseries #Mustwatch #Motherhoodthroughinstagram #Momsofinstagram #Momlife #Parents #Parenthood
