New Delhi, Feb 19 (IANS) Actors Kratika Sengar and Abhishek Rawat were here Thursday to promote their forthcoming soap opera "Service Wali Bahu", which is aimed at depicting the harsh reality of modern Indian society where people are demanding a working woman as daughter-in-law who can support her in-laws with a steady income post marriage. Based on a small town in Jamshedpur, Jharkhand, the women-centric show will showcase the life of Payal Rai (played by Kratika) -- a civil engineer - who falls into the trap of a new-age dowry system after she marries Dev (essayed by Abhishek). In today's society, the concept of dowry system is not the same which it was earlier. So, the show demonstrates the other way through which people have started asking for dowry." Though the show focuses much on Payal's life, Abhishek said he will get more recognition from the show and his character will demonstrate a positive attitude to the society.
