Home Shanti Trailer Out
The nearly 2-minute trailer which was released on April 25, 2022, follows a Dehradun-based middle-class Joshi family, who have been residing in government- allocated quarters for the past 25 years. Sarla Joshi (Supriya Pathak) is the principal of a government school and her husband Umesh Joshi (Manoj Pahwa) is a poet. The couple has two kids played by Chakori Dwivedi and Poojan Chhabra.
As Sarla will be retired from her job in three months, following the short notice to vacate their comfortable government- allocated quarters, the family is about to embark on a momentous journey to make their dream home, and each has their own specifications.
Home Shanti Star Cast
The slice-of-life drama has an ensemble star cast including some veteran and young actors. Veteran actor Supriya Pathak, who is best known for her notable roles of Hansa Parekh in poplar Hindi sitcom series “Khichdi” franchise and as Dhankor Baa in “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, is playing as Sarla Joshi, a stoic, school vice-principal, a wife and mother of two children.
