The Dehradun-based family is confronted with the job of finding a new house after being compelled to leave their comfortable government-allocated accommodations where they had been residing for the previous 20 years.

The trailer showcases the Joshi family, a four-person family, driving in a car. It introduces Manoj as Umesh Joshi, a comic Hindi newspaper columnist, and Supriya as Sarla Joshi, a stoic school vice-principal. Sarla chooses voluntary retirement to avoid relocating, putting her family in the uncomfortable position of needing to build a house after being given short notice to vacate their government-allocated quarter. The series will premier on Disney+ Hotstar on 6 May 2022. Talking about the story line of the series, director Aakanksha Dua said,
Home Shanti as a family drama takes a close look at the emotional journey a family makes while building their dream home. It is a breezy, uplifting and humorous drama that will make the viewer fall in love with the Joshis and root for them till the last brick has been laid. I feel incredibly grateful for Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa, who brought their wondrous synergy to the drama. Their on-screen chemistry pulled at my heartstrings and I am sure they will cast the same spell on the audience. We’ve got some talented actors, Chakori Dwivedi and Poojan Chabbra as the Joshi siblings who have made the characters so loveable. Happy Ranajit as the contractor is spot on! Infact the entire cast of ‘Home Shanti’ feels like a fun ensemble and the characters grow on you. Can’t wait to see the audience’s reaction to this emotional cushion of a drama.”
Chakori Dwivedi was cast in Home Shanti alongside legendary actors Supriya Pathak and Manoj Pahwa. In an interview, Manoj Pahwa also mentioned sharing a screen with her. He stated,
I feel extremely proud to be a part of a special project like Home Shanti. I fell in love with the show’s storyline of a heartfelt and endearing drama. Viewers can expect a fun, easy watch that touches their heart with its simple story and its even simpler characters. However, playing these simple characters is what gets me motivated as an actor. Getting back on the sets with Supirya ji was like slipping into comfortable waters for me. I must applaud the new talents as well as they have been such an easy flock to work and laugh with. I can’t wait to see how the audience responds to the show.”
