Is Masculine and Heroic the True Mard?

Thursday, May 24, 2018

Tough, strong, muscular and in control epitomises the “ideal” man. With an aim to shatter these stereotypes, channel Colors introduces viewers to 'Roop- Mard Ka Naya Swaroop'. The young eight-year-old boy, Roop (played by Afaan Khan) questions sensitivities of a patriarchal society that decides how men and women ought to behave. Produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms Ltd, the show brings on how Roop hopes to change these age old typecasts, starting this Monday to Friday at 9 pm.

Commenting on the show, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, Colors, said,“The most beautiful part about Roop’s character is that he’s been born into a family with three sisters. By default, he loves helping his mom and playing with his sisters, which in the real world isn’t considered appropriate for boys. Like our other shows on social issues, this one is going to touch upon the fact as to why in the new world must a man establish his manhood through things which are aggressive and violent.”Producer Rashmi Sharma from Rashmi  Sharma Telefilms further elaborated saying, “Why does our daughter get a kitchen set while the son plays with a car? This thought needs to be relooked and with Roop -Mard ka Naya Swaroop’, we are attempting to bring a positive change in the mindset that prevails in today’s society.”

Speaking about his character, Yash Tonk said, "As a concept, the show is rather unique and my character echoes what many of us feel about the characteristics of being a man.” Roop attempts to leave the idea of ‘Beti ko Beta Banao’ behind and embrace the idea ‘Bete ko Beti Jaise Banao’.
