As more and more foreign nationals come to India, one is often prompted to ask: “Can a foreigner feel at home in India?” Sahara One will address this question through its new, light-hearted family show ‘Firangi Bahu’ which will go on air from Monday, November 11, 2013 at 7:30 PM. The show will put forth a concept that has never been seen before in Indian television – a foreigner who comes to stay in her ‘sasural’ in India. It is well known that foreigners are fascinated by India, its colourful festivals, traditions and diverse cultural heritage. This fascination makes them want to try and become a part of Indian culture. At the same time, Indians too are quite curious about the West. They have accepted Western influences on Indian food, attire, art, music and many other things. However, when it comes to the sacred institution of marriage, Indians still consider people from the West to be unwelcome representatives from a world that is too different and alien. It is in this cultural backdrop that ‘Firangi Bahu’ is set.
