Karisma Kapoor is excited to make her digital debut with Mentalhood, a ZEE5 Original drama series about moms and motherhood. Besides Lolo, it features Sanjay Suri, Dino Morea, Sandhya Mridul, Shilpa Shukla, Tillotama Shome and Shruti Seth. Even though she has made appearances in film and shows, Karisma is returning to a full-fledged acting role after 7 years of break. Her character, Meira Sharma, is multi-tasking mom from Kanpur, trying to find the right balance in parenting her three children and reaches out to more mothers like her. Apart from her, meet the other supermoms who equally play pivotal roles of a different kind in Mentalhood, in the teaser below.
Watch the teaser here:
Rightly titled The Supermoms of Mentalhood, the teaser begins with a frame of Karisma Kapoor balancing her three kids; a boy on her palm, her daughter with her hand and another son with her leg. She has been given a pseudonym ‘mental mom’ Meira Sharma. The next shot is of Dino Morea, who plays a stay at home dad, Aakash Fernandes, with his little daughter and son. Then comes Sandhya Mridul, essaying ‘momzilla mom’ Anuja Joshi, who has a snooty expression on her face, accompanied by her husband, a teenage daughter and a son.
The second half of the teaser shows Shilpa Shukla as a workaholic mom, Namrata Dalmia, with her little girl, juggling between chores in the kitchen. The fourth one is a yoga-practising boho mom, Diksha Shah, played by Shruti Seth, who has a young lad. The final and fifth one is Tillotama Shome who essays pushover mom Preity Khosla. All these mothers of different kinds have varying views and opinions on parenting and having the right balance in life. They deal with life as it comes with its ups and downs, highs and lows. The colourful teaser and background score gives out a happy vibe symbolizing that despite all the struggles of being a mother, these women enjoy their lives and live it to the fullest!
Directed by Karishma Kohli, the series also features Sanjay Suri as Karima Kapoor’s on-screen husband. Along with taking you on the emotional roller-coaster ride of these moms, the series also sheds light on the underratedness of being a parent, especially a mother, in the society. So, get ready to enjoy the topsy-turvy world of mothers and how they manoeuvre their way through unreasonable expectations and eccentricities to raise their children!
