The core of this story is very strong and very much relevant in today's time when people are always struggling to judge who is their own and who's not. The story is a mirror to the bitter reality which still exists in our society." "My time is yet to come "goes the saying. The show also explores the popular Indian belief that time is omnipotent. It is the wisest counselor and has the power to change life in an instant. In a house that is awaiting the arrival of a girl child, arrives Rudra but all, even the mother who longed for a daughter, treats her as "paraya". Rudra who is treated as an outsider all her life by the family who adopt her ultimately she becomes the savior of the family. "The subject of Waqt Batayega is very sensitive and we are glad that Sony Entertainment Television has liked the concept and we hope it touches the viewers' hearts too. It is a very different story, in a society where male child rules, here is a family who is longing for a girl child. The show attempts to explore & understand the importance of a girl child in a family & society at large," said Creative Eye's Dheeraj Kumar, Producer of the show.

With names like Mukesh Khanna, Kishori Shahane Viz, Nishigandha Wad, Gufi Paintal, Nayan Bhatt, Eva Grover, Payal Sarkaar in stellar roles the audience will surely enjoy watching & relating to the show.
