Behind the scenes with the cast of Khandan
Widow Jeeto Gill has spent her life working hard and making sacrifices for her children. Now she looks forward to going back to her land in the Punjab, eating saag and roti on a verandah and letting her tired eyes rest on green fields.
Her son Pal seems to have it all but he's restless. He's got big plans for his Daddy's business and a taste for Johnny Walker Black Label. His kind-hearted wife Liz has her own ideas about what's best and Pal's sharp-tongued sister Cookie runs the tackiest beauty salon in town and harbours a dark secret.
When their cousin's destitute wife, Reema, arrives from back home, the Gills propose to take care of her. Little do they know that her arrival will change the course of their family's destiny forever.
