The Star Plus channel is now very much dedicated to showing some real stories. The Muskaan serial contains one such story which is based on the plot of the journey and life of a sex worker. Many famous actress Mahi Vij, Tinaadatta,
Hina Khan, and
Neha Marda were initially shortlisted for the lead role of tawaif, which was quite challenging. ArinaDey, a Bengali actress, bagged the role and made the production happy.
ArinaDey plays the character of Arti, Muskan’s mother, and a tawaif. The role of Muskan is played by
Sonakshi Save. The serial is produced by Rashmi Sharma Productions. The plot revolves around Muskan and her tough life for getting an existence in the world based on the fact that she is a daughter of a sex worker.
Her mother, Arti does whatever it takes to protect her from the world and even hides her out in a box for protecting her from the world of Meena Bazar, where girls are ill-treated. The production firstly named the show as “Tawaif,” and afterward renamed it as “Meena Bazar.” After many discussions, the name “Muskaan” was given to the show. The first episode of Muskaan was aired on 29th May 2018.
