Saroj Ka Rishta trailer: Sanah Kapur tries to shed kilos to woo man of her dreams, teams up with mom

Updated: Oct 16, 2022

The more than two-minute-long trailer opens with Sanah Kapur being introduced as Saroj, who is exactly opposite of how her father (Kumud Mishra) describes her to probable suitors. She has feelings for a boy who wants a “slim” girl as revealed by her sister. As she reaches the gym to “lose weight without any pain”, her gym trainer falls for her. He likes her irrespective of her weight and even says, “Chand ke mote hone se koi farak nahi padta, motapa to khush rahne ki nishani hoti hai (it doesn't matter the moon is big or small, fatness is the symbol of happiness).”

While it remains to be seen who will actually get to marry Saroj, Kumud Mishra's line from the trailer wins hearts. He says parents shouldn't marry off their daughter just because she is turning older or the neighbours are commenting about her. Supriya as Saroj's mother, meanwhile, is seen doling out some love advice to her daughter.

Saroj Ka Rishta is directed by Abhishek Saxena and is produced by Anmol Kapoor, Nazia Siddiqui, Narendra Garg and Raman Kapoor.
