While Pallavi Gupta plays the protagonist Bitto who wages a fight for equality with the Thakur of the village, Waqar Sheikh has been roped in to play the Thakur of the village, Thakur Suraj Pratap.
The latest news is that noted actress Pallavi Rao has been finalized to play the daughter-in-law of the Thakur.
Pallavi Rao was earlier seen playing the role of Gandhari in Ekta's Mahabharat on 9X. She was also seen essaying the role of Sheetal Bua in Imagine's Kitani Mohabbat Hai. Pallavi was also seen in Tujh Sang Preet Lagayi Sajana and Koi Aane Ko Hai.
When contacted, Pallavi confirmed the news and said, "I will be playing the daughter-in-law of the Thakur. My screen name is Sugandha. She is a person who has the capability to win over all with her talk and beauty. She has a grey shade, but is not the loud and completely negative character. There is a comic touch to the character too".
The unit had their first outdoor shoot at Wai recently. The show is expected to launch at a prime time slot post IPL.
