Rohit Roy and Mansi Joshi Roy’s maiden fiction presentation, Rang – The Colors of Love which was likely to be launched on Zee Next might finally see the light of the day, on Zee TV instead of Zee Next.
According to lead actor, Shaleen Bhanot, this tri-weekly will air on the weekend slot on the flag ship channel of the Zee network. He refused to confirm the timing saying, “It's too early to talk about that. A meeting will soon be held in which you will get all details”. He is quite gung-ho about his US returned Gujrathi character, who will be wooed by three girls, Chavi Mithal, Karishma Randhawa and Manasvi. “You have had many triangle love affairs, welcome to the pentangle scene”, he grins.
Asked to comment on the delay, he says, “Everything happens for the good”. When asked whether problems with Zee Next had caused the delay, he diplomatically says, “I am not the right person to comment on this!!” However, if the buzz is to be believed, Zee Next is shutting down due to distribution issues and a call will soon be taken on the shows that might get a shift to Zee TV.
Shaleen Bhanot will be seen as celebrity guest for his Kulvadhu co-star Daljeet Kaur in Sahara One’s Saas V/s Bahu. Ask him about the report that he has been replaced in Naaginn where he plays a double role, and the actor is quick to say, “No, that’s false. The only reason why I am not around is that the story is focusing on earth and I am at the Naag lok. I will be back soon”.
As regards to his negative portrayal as Madan in Sangam, he says he has no idea when his track will be back. “It’s been a long time since I have shot for the Star Plus show. This is television where one can die and still come back, so the creative will have no dearth of ideas”, he ends.
