TellyBuzz gave our readers exclusive news on Archana Taide, Pramod Moutho and Varun Badola essaying principal roles in Swastik Pictures and Sony Entertainment Television's upcoming show Maan Rahe Tera Pitaah. We had also reported that Sulbha Arya, Krip Suri and Bharat Kaul will also be part of the show.
According to our source, "Kshitee Jog will play Varun Badola's wife. Reshmi Ghosh will play the wife of Krip Suri who happens to be Varun Badola's son".
For the uninitiated, the show is the tale of a daughter (Archana Taide) who fights for the pride of her mentally challenged father, played by Pramod Moutho. Varun Badola will play the chacha of the female lead. New face Krip Suri plays Varun Badola's son, while Bharat Kaul will essay the role of a Chief Engineer in the coal mine. Veteran actress Sulbha Arya will play the dadi of the female lead Anmol.
When contacted, Kshitee told us, "Yes, I am doing the show. I have been asked to play Varun Badola's wife. But we are now in the finalization stage, and will be able to tell you more about it tomorrow".
It was reported elsewhere that Reshmi Ghosh was due to play Varun Badola's wife. But the fact is that she was approached to play the bahu of the younger generation, and not Varun's wife.
Reshmi clarified this bit of news to TellyBuzz saying, "I am not playing Varun's wife. In fact, he is my father-in-law in the show. I play the wife of Krip Suri. My character is completely negative, and I support my husband in all ways possible. This is a very interesting role and am looking forward to it".
Bharat Kaul who plays the role of the Chief Engineer in the show will be the on screen father of Reshmi Ghosh.
We tried calling Producer Siddharth Tewary, and even sent him a text message, but he remained unavailable.
The show is expected to launch on April 26th at a prime time slot.
