Smriti Irani’s Ugraya Productions which has produced serials like Thodi Si Zameen Thoda Sa Aasmaan, Virrudh and Mere Apne adds yet another feather in its cap as it ventures out for its first project on Zee TV, tentatively titled Waaris. The buzz around is that Smriti has roped in Zee’s blue-eyed boy Yuvraj Malhotra and the heart throb of millions, Iqbal Khan to play the pivotal characters in the serial.
While the innumerable fans of Iqbal Khan who miss him as Abhimanyu Adhikari in Star One’s Choona Hai Aasmaan will be thrilled to see him back in action, Waaris will be a big break for Yuvraj Malhotra who is also seen in Zee’s Ghar Ki Lakshmi Betiyaan.
Confirming his role in the Smriti serial, a very pleased Yuvraj Malhotra says, “Yes, I am playing the role of a character called Shourya. Iqbal Khan is playing my elder brother in the serial and I will be starting shoot for this serial next week”. When asked how he managed to get this role, the firm Zee loyalist states, “Smriti saw and liked my work in Betiyaan. Plus Zee recommended my name strongly”.
Iqbal Khan was unavailable for comments.
This will definitely be joyous news for Yuvraj and Iqbal fans as they get to see their two heartthrobs together on television for the first time!!!
