Coincidentally, Sanjay Surkar was the Director of the very popular Marathi movie, and now it is the same movie which inspires him to turn Producer on television.
Talking about his journey from Director to Producer, Sanjay Surkar told TellyBuzz, "I never thought of producing any show, but the channel insisted me to take charge of it. The show is inspired by my Marathi movie Gharabaher, which released six years back. And as the show's concept is mine it became easy for me to look after both the aspects of creativity and production".
On the idea of converting his movie into a daily soap, he says, "In between I was busy with some other work, and could not concentrate on making a daily soap. And the other reason would be that I wanted the show to grow on a larger canvas and wanted the concept to reach every youth of the country. Initially I thought of taking the show to a Marathi channel, but the concept and the flavour of the show forced me to pitch it to Star One".
