The story is about Raavi (Shivya Pathania), whose house in Punjab was a standalone accomodation with seperate rooms for each family member, and Vishy (Stavan Shinde) who has a Maharashtrian family that stays in a small room in a Mumbai chawl.
"Their life reflects the ever-increasing dilemma of choosing between community living and a more nuclear set-up," Vaidya said. "Dil Dhoondta Hai", which also features actors Ashish Dixit, Pratiksha Jha, Rajan Bhise, Purnima Talvalkar, Varsha Dandle and Hunza Sabir in pivotal roles, will go on air from September 21.
