Rajan Shahi's Directors' Kut which has given viewers two top-rated shows in Sapna Babul Ka ...Bidaai and Yeh Ristha Kya Kehlata Hai is now all set for their third venture on television, Maat Pitaah Ke Charnon Mein Swarg on COLORS launching on 29th June at the 7.30 PM slot.
Continuing with the trend of having a good balance in terms of actors with the right mix of experienced as well as new faces, the production house has yet again roped in a good ensemble cast for the show.
Swarg will have three male leads of which one is an experienced actor while the other two are new faces to television. The Producer Rajan Shahi aptly says, "We would like to continue with the legacy of giving televison and its viewers the stars of tomorrow, just like Angad Hasija, Kinshuk Mahajan and Karan Mehra. Swarg will see an established actor in Pracheen Chauhan who makes a comeback, and to give him company are two new faces Nikhil Chaddha and Dheeraj Dhoopar".
Talking on the three leads of his new show, Rajan continues, "Pracheen is a brilliant actor and I was very keen to work with him. I had told him nearly two years back that when I get a good author-backed role, he will be my first choice. This role of Shubh Tripathi, the eldest of the brothers is tailor-made for him".
On Nikhil Chaddha, who essays the role of Arjun, the second son of the Tripathi family, Rajan Shahi states, "We had auditioned hundreds of new faces for this role, but the moment I saw Nikhil I knew that he would suit the role to the 'T'. He has a very different face, look and feel and this will go well with the complex and intense character he is playing in the show. Nikhil has been undergoing intense grooming from Girish Dhanija, Script Supervisor of the show. He is also receiving guidance from Amardeep Jha who also plays a very important character in Swarg".
But, all was not a bed of roses for Dheeraj Dhoopar who plays the youngest of the brothers."I would say that luck favored Dheeraj as he had auditioned for the same role once and was rejected. I found him to be very raw earlier, but after a month or so, the young lad called me again and requested me to give him another chance to prove his mettle. We had also not got our perfect choice for the role, and this time I decided to take the look test of the lad. And to my astonishment, he showed a remarkable improvement and I selected him to play the youngest of the brothers, Ansh Tripathi. Ansh is the pampered son of the family, a very cute and lovable boy and the naughtiest of the brothers", explains Rajan.
Well, there is a curiosity amongst viewers on the story line and how the characters are etched in Rajan Shahi's new show!!
All we can say is that the countdown has begun, and we will soon see how the story unfolds...
