"Mahatma Gandhi was also a husband, father, a family man. Though his sacrifices have been chronicled on screen before, we would also like to highlight the sacrifices made by his family, a story largely untold.

"UTV television has always looked for innovation in what ever it ventures into. When Smriti came up with the concept I found it very interesting and novel. Gandhi has been one of the greatest political leader and thinkers of 20th century, we would like to encapsulate the golden era with great dignity, panoramic sweep and excellence in production," says Ajit, COO, UTV Television.
