Mumbai, Feb : Purva Naresh’s acclaimed teleplay ‘Aaj Rang Hai’ derives its name from a Hazrat Amir Khusrau qawwali written in Hindavi and Braj Bhasha.

The teleplay revolves around Beni Bai, an erstwhile baithak singer, and her neighbourhood where different faiths intermingle harmoniously till a riot destroys everything. Will there be a resurgence of peace and hope? Watch what happens to Beni Bai and her neighbours Fanney, Sharda, Ameena, and Vidya on ZEE5.
