Deepti Bhatnagar’s show, ‘Shaadi Street’ which was renamed as ‘Gum Hua Hosh’ was about to go on air somewhere in September last year, but has not seen the dawn till now.
Rati Pandey and Manoje Bidvaai are the leading pair of the show. Besides them, actors like Hrishikesh Pandey and Sangeet Haldipur are also part of the show.
We called Rati Pandey to know about the status of Gum Hua Hosh. “I have no clue. We all have been paid by the channel for the show. The shooting is completed and we are hoping that the show comes on air soon. Well it’s the call of the channel and the producer.”
We called the Producer, Deepti Bhatnagar herself to know what the problem is. “I really don’t know why the channel is not launching the show. It’s been three years, a very long time, but still I have no clue of when the show will go on air.”
Deepti has been in constant touch with the channel. “I have been calling the channel to know, but in reply I only get the answer that they will launch the show soon. There are good actors in the show who are now well established. Director turned Producer Rajan Shahi of Bidaai fame has directed this show. The concept is also very nice,” she adds further.
Are there any plans to launch the same show on any other channel? “We have a contract with Star Plus in which we can only deliver a show to them. However, the time when the show will get launched will be taken by them. But I really wish the show gets its due soon,” she quips.
The show complies of 27 episodes. It is a family drama revolving around various families residing at Shaadi Street in Benaras. They got permission from the American serial ‘Brides Avenue’, a telenovella. However, the production team made lot of changes to the story.
Well looking at the current scenario, there is no ray of hope for the show, but we hope all goes well soon!!
