- What happens when people with different personality traits come under the same roof? Expect the unexpected. That’s what ‘Suraj Aur Saanjh’ promises to be. A light-hearted tale about Suraj (Anil Charanjeett) and Saanjh (Anjali Anand) that personifies a perfect blend of emotions, drama and comedy.The five-episode of Suraj Aur Saanjh web series begins with veteran actor Raza Murad’s voiceover where he enlightens about the news of nationwide lockdown imposed by the Indian government from March 24 onwards in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
