Actor Gracy Singh will be returning to the small screen as Goddess Santoshi Maa. The Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India actress had played the title role in Santoshi Maa, which aired from 2015 to 2017.
Now, she will be starring in socio-mythology show titled - Santoshi Maa - Sunaye Vrat Kathayein, a new narrative to focus on a different aspect of Vrat Kathayein. Through Santoshi Maa as the sutradhaar, the show will present diverse beliefs and practices behind the emergence of every vrat (fasting).
Gracy said: “Fans and well-wishers keep asking me the reason I take up only select roles when I am constantly offered various roles. Well, the reason is that with every character, I look for something deep that I can connect with on a personal level. The character of Maa Santoshi in my first stint with ‘Santoshi Maa’, was extremely fulfilling for me and to bring out the essence once again, is surreal. Playing a divine character isn’t easy, but there’s an unexplainable positivity that it brings along.”
