The latest is that, Imagine is planning to bring a show tracing the innocence of first love, a romantic journey between a school going boy and a girl.
An inside source tells us, "Sumeet and Shashi Mittal, the original writers of Baali Umar Ko Salaam, (which was then to be produced by Jay Productions) have been asked by the channel to proceed with the same concept. This time, Sumeet and Shashi Mittal, makers of Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai on Star Plus will be producing the show. The concept of the show might undergo slight changes, but will be revolving around the innocent love of a school going boy and a girl. The show will have a fresh cast now".
We called up Kinnari Mehta of Jay Productions who said, "This is news to me. If at all the show is being made my wishes to them".
Sumeet Mittal, the Producer in charge now commented, "Yes, it is true that we are making a show for Imagine. But it is not Baali Umar Ko Salaam. It is a love story, but is completely different".
We sent a text message to Saurabh Tewary, Programming Head, Imagine who replied in text, "No it's not true. It is just a rumour".
If sources are to be believed, the casting for the show is already on. Lately, Balaji Telefilms' love story on Star Plus Tere Liye, revolving around two school going kids Taani and Anurag, was received well by the audience.
Let's see what this show has to offer…
