The man of versatility has been in the television industry for more than 20 years now and has directed many TV serials, tele-films, short films and feature films. We spoke to Alok Nath about this new serial which is currently being aired on DD from Monday to Friday at 12:00 PM. Following are some excerpts.

Tell us something about the serial “Kul Ki Jyoti Kanya”

In this serial, I have tried to bring the sensitive issues like female foeticide in the limelight which was the very first topic that Aamir Khan put forth in Satyamev Jayate. In this serial also I have put forth the importance of a girl child. How a father who hopes for a son kicks his wife and two daughters out of the house and remarries another woman. His second wife does give birth to sons but these sons later in become a major misery in the father’s life. In such a situation his daughters take care of him and it is then that he realizes the true gender that enlightens our life by burning herself every minute! 

Is this serial inspired by Satyamev Jayate?
