“We are very privileged and honoured to have had a chance to work with such an incredible cast of supremely talented actors who will hopefully help us get this message out there! Hoping our viewers extend the same love and enjoy the series,” Patil told IANS.

“Man’s World”, a comedy, is a what if on ‘what if women treated men, the way men treat women’. It is a story about walking a mile in their shoes, in that world.

The lead role of Kiran is played by Gaurav Pandey, who is being launched by YRF in the series, written and directed by Vikram Gupta.

Parineeti hopes the “series brings a positive change in everybody’s life”, while Nandy said: “The crux of the matter is that you and I and all of us must practise gender equality all the time in every context without talking too much about it. It’s something that must exist in your life as a matter of fact.”

Kalki, who has essayed powerful roles on the big screen wishes that “the series picks up and people become more conscious about inequality”.

Richa has lauded the fact “that the men associated with the project are also revaluating themselves, because feminism isn’t necessarily about ‘Hey women we are better than men’, it’s the notion that we are created equal.”
