A for Apil, B for Baal, C for Cau! Though it sounds strange and amusing, this is what Vidya will teach in her ‘Englisss’ class. Contrary to her name, Vidya is an illiterate army widow who gets a compensatory government job as an English teacher. But while it is an unfamiliar language to her, she gathers all the courage and strength to teach English, incorrectly at first but gradually learns and overshadows her weakness. Colors new social drama offering 'Vidya' will not only take the viewers back to school but also generate spurts of laughter through Vidya’s linguistic quirks and innocence. Produced by Mahesh Pandey, 'Vidya' will air from 9th September every Monday to Friday at 7:00 pm only on Colors.

Set against Devgarh, a small village in Uttar Pradesh, the show brings to fore Vidya’s (Meera Deosthale) apprehensions and struggles as she steps into the role of a school teacher to financially support her family after her husband’s demise. In the process, she has an encounter with the Pradhan of the village (played by Waqar Sheikh) who poses as a big hindrance in her outing. As she goes along in her journey, Vidya discovers many loopholes in her school and the overarching education system. There is only one person, district magistrate Vivek Vardhan Singh (played by Namish Taneja), who recognizes Vidya’s efforts and acts as her support. Ultimately, she not only ends up winning over her personal struggles but also pins down the people plaguing the education system. As life throws curveballs at her, Vidya keeps overcoming them with her spirit and wit while entertaining the audience along the way.

Meera Deosthale essaying the character of Vidya Singh commented, “As an actor, I always dreamt of essaying a character that is impactful and creates a stir. And I am fortunate to have received an opportunity to play such a powerful character for the second time in a row. When I heard the narration of Vidya, it ticked all the right boxes and hence I decided to take it up. The show chronicles the life of an under-confident and uneducated girl and her struggles of becoming an English teacher through a slice of life concept and I am looking forward to it.

Namish Taneja playing the character of Vivek Vardhan Singh said, “I am portraying the character of a district magistrate, Vivek who enters in Vidya’s life at a very critical point. He will be someone who sees immense potential in Vidya and helps her find her life’s purpose. Vivek will be the positive force in her life, a thorough gentleman who understands the importance of education. My character is simple yet persuasive and I feel honored that COLORS chose me for this character. I am hoping for a good response from the audience.

Waqar Shaikh playing Nanku Thakur commented, “I’ve been a part of many TV shows in the past, but Vidya is one of the most unique one. I portray an influential negative character, Nanku Singh who misuses the power of being the pradhaan of the school. His conflict with Vidya results in reflecting role of education in curbing social evil. I am thankful to Colors for honoring me with this character.

Along with Meera Deosthale, Namish Taneja and Waqar Sheikh in the lead role the show will feature Liliput playing pivotal roles.

Be a part of Vidya’s unique ‘Englisss’ class starting September 9th, 2019 every Monday – Friday, 7.00pm pm only on Colors.
