Filmmaker Anurag Basu is set to recreate the magic of the film "Chokher Bali", but on TV. The director has signed actress Radhika Apte for the series.

The show will go on air on new channel Epic.

Radhika will be seen playing the role of Binodini, which was played by Aishwarya Rai in Rituparno Ghosh's film. The 2003 movie was based on the eponymous novel by Rabindranath Tagore. The story revolves around the life of a widow and the stigma attached to it.

Talking about bagging the role, Radhika said in a statement: "In 'Chokher Bali', I play the character of the young widow Binodini, who is very unjustly treated by the society and ends up in seclusion and loneliness.

"She attempts to destroy the life of the person she thinks is responsible (for her state). Despite her negative intentions, she comes across as very intelligent, wise and noble person and cannot be hated for her vulnerability."

Radhika is excited to work with Basu, who has helmed popular films like "Barfi!" and "Life in a... Metro".

"It was an absolute treat to work with Anurag Basu. It has been one of the most enriching experiences. He has a supreme capacity to bring out the emotional journey of the character through the actor. I think its splendid that one will get to see some historically essential literature presented on Epic," she added.

"Chokher Bali" is not Basu's first outing on the small screen. He made a serial named "Love Story" and was also seen judging an acting reality show India's Best Cine Stars Ki Khoj.

chakdephatte 9 years ago forget about don 1, it hasnt been a secret that don 2 is in the making. nariman films couldve sent their notice a long while ago. but they decided to wait until prior to the release of the film so that they can get their share of publicity.
i'm kinda disappointed by the music of don 2 but maybe it'll grow on me with time. hope the movie lives up to the huge expectations!

Sanaa629 9 years ago I agree with SPINKaShFanatic..!! If there was any copyright notice to be given it should have been given at the time of Don..!! Not the sequel..especially considering Amitabh's Don didn't have one..

Otherwise..Don 2 looks promising...Hoping it will be worth it..:D Was looking forward to this more than Ra.One..

HCAGforever 9 years ago why didnt those producers do something when the remake was made a few years back. it does not make sense to be slamming legal notices when different story altogether is being potrayed. what, were the producers of the riginal don living in a cave when the remake was released!
