Balaji Telefilms will be back on Sony Entertainment Television after a hiatus with 'Betaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai'.
According to our source, "This will be a remake of sorts of Kasamh Se and will deal with the lives of three sisters who come to Mumbai from Assam".
Recently, a tabloid had written about Betaab Dil Ki Tamanna Hai focusing on the real life disgraced incident of actor Shiney Ahuja. It was also reported that Salim Ghouse will be playing the role of Shiney.
However, our source dismisses the entire theory and states, "Our show is nowhere related to Shiney Ahuja's real life happening. Yes, we have a scene wherein we need to shoot at a red light area, but this is something totally different from what the actor committed in real life", states our source.
The search is on for the three new girls who will essay the roles of the sisters in the show. "For the elder sister's role, Anupriya Kapoor, a girl from the Kishore Namit Kapoor School of Acting has been short listed. However, the channel has not yet given a confirmation. Pragati Chorasia, a 11 year old who has done a one-day character in a Balaji show in the last three years has been finalized to play the youngest of the sisters", informs our source.
Popular actress Urvashi Dholakia will be seen staging a comeback to Balaji Telefilms with this show.
It is buzzed that Palampur Express will be shutting shop in the near future, and this new Balaji show in all likelihood will replace it.
When contacted, Sandiip Sikcand, Creative Director, Balaji Telefilms said, "You need to talk to the channel regarding this".
Khwaish and Kuch Is Tara were the last offerings of Balaji Telefilms for Sony Entertainment Television..
