Mumbai, Sep 12 (UNI) Sony Entertainment Television will telecast from September 24, ''Amber Dhara'' based on the story of conjoined twins -- 'Amber and Dhara.' Of the two sisters, one is a good singer while the other is interested in playing the guitar.

Talking to reporters, ''Amber Dhara'' producers Vikas Seth and Siddharth Tewary of Swastik Pictures gave a brief insight into the serial.

Lata Shukla is abandoned by her husband Dev after she gives birth to conjoined daughters. But, Lata raises Amber and Dhara against all odds and brings them to Panchgani where her father lives.

Amber and Dhara grow up as two very distinct personalities -- Amber is gutsy, while Dhara is more realistic and takes her time with decisions -- two bodies, two minds and two hearts yet conjoined for life.

Sony Entertainment executive Vice President and Business Head Albert Almeida, commenting on the serial said, ''Amber Dhara is a clutter-breaking effort that reinforces our belief of delivering differentiated, progressive and unique storylines.'' Sidharth Tewary and Vikas Seth said the idea of ''conjoined twins'' was conceived and developed into a storyline as ''we were looking at presenting a show that would break the current generic saas-bahu trend; a story that would inspire people, because of the lovable and relatable characters, who with their indomitable spirit will reachout to several hearts and homes''.

They denied that the serial is based on the famous Marathi and Gujarati play ''Lali and Lila''. Mr Seth said in 1950 also there was a movie of conjoined sisters in which real conjoined sisters had acted.
