Sony Entertainment Television is all set to launch its new historical show – Punyashlok Ahilyabai. The show is a period drama set in the 18th century based on the extraordinary life of ‘Ahilyabai Holkar’, who with the support of her father-in-law Malhar Rao Holkar, vehemently defied the pre-defined norms of the patriarchal society and made positive contributions for the welfare of people and particularly women. It’s a brave tale of Ahilyabai’s prolific journey, which wouldn’t have been possible without the guidance of her father-in-law Malhar Rao Holkar. Ahilyabai set an example that one becomes great not by gender or birth but by deeds.

Famous child actress Aditi Jaltare has been roped in to play the titular role of the legendary Ahilyabai Holkar’s younger version. Keeping in mind her impeccable line of work and the audiences’ love that she has garnered in such a short span of time, Aditi Jaltare was considered a befitting choice to essay such a pivotal character in the show.
