ALTBalaji recently announced its new web-series ‘Mentalhood’, a show on the crazy ride of Motherhood. Directed by Karishma Kohli, ‘Mentalhood’ will see actor Shruti Seth making her digital debut as Diksha, a single mother. Staying true to the title, the web-series will showcase the topsy-turvy ride of the various kinds of mothers that exist and how they maneuver their way through unreasonable expectations and eccentricities to raise their children.

Spilling the beans on her role, Shruti shared, “I am playing the role of Diksha, who is a single mother of a young child and a yoga trainer. She is a free-spirited mother, who respects and loves mother earth. She does not want to raise an air-conditioned child, but let nature take its course. Schools are commercial, doctors are hacks and rules are for those whose imagination lack. She is vegan, she is gluten free and she is a natural. Diksha is going through sort of a bitter relationship with her ex-husband who is a very regular guy and she is too bohemian for him. Though she has her own flaws and idiosyncrasies, she is a kind soul and is quite balanced.”

Talking about how Shruti has taken inspiration from her own life for the character, she further added, “I haven’t really taken any real-life inspiration for my character but the biggest common factor is that I am a yoga practitioner in real life as well. I’m the one who believes in naturopathy and things like that but I’m an equal believer in the merits of allopathic medicines. I don’t think I’m a cuckoo mother the way Diksha is on some days, but I am quite free-spirited and happy and easy going just like my reel self. She is a joyful fun mother and I think that is quite like what I’m in real life as well.”

‘Mentalhood’ is set to release later this year.
