After successfully setting her foot strong in family dramas and the supernatural genre, Ekta Kapoor is all set to venture in the sci-fi genre. Ekta is coming up with an interesting show on Zee TV, tentatively titled Haivan which will explore the sci-fi bracket on television. As reported earlier, talented actor Param Singh has been locked as the male lead of the show and the makers were still looking for the right face opposite him. Well, as per the latest reports, popular south Indian actress Gayathiri Iyer has been roped in by the makers. Apparently, she hasn’t been finalized as the female protagonist but the lead antagonist of the show.
According to a report in a leading news portal, Anita Hassanandani was initially supposed to play the character, however makers didn’t want to repeat her as she has also been featured in Naagin 3 and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. Gayatri who made her Bollywood debut last year opposite Ajay Devgan in blockbuster movie Raid, will be making her TV debut with this show.
If sources are to be believed, the plot of the show will revolve around a scientist whose experiments accidentally turn him into a superhero. The scientist will be played by Param Singh.
Now, doesn’t it sound exciting? We’re totally rooting for the show and looking forward to get more details on it.
