KITUU SABB JAANTII HAI
Schedule: Starts 14th Nov. Mon-Thu 9.30pm
She is the girl with fire in her heart and dreams in her eyes. A girl, who has been brought up lovingly in a middle class family with the right values instilled, but dares to dream beyond the horizons of her little mohalla. A girl who is destined to be one of the recognized faces in the country of over a billion people for all the right reasons…. Kituu—the apple of her father's eye, the life of her mohalla, the leader of her gang of boys as playmates, who comes to be known as one of the finest women in the competitive world of journalism.
An extremely talkative and a lovable girl with an amicable aura about her personality, Kituu faces life's biggest challenges at the tender age of 20. While all other girls are busy fantasizing their husbands and their trousseaux, Kituu is forced to bring all her hidden talents to the fore in an attempt to save her family from a potential ruin and a lifetime of debt. With all that she manages to achieve in her life of strife, Kituu truly seems to be born successful in all her endeavours. These qualities also ensure that she reaches the pinnacle of her profession and becomes a household name in the arena of electronic journalism.
'Kituu Sabb Jaantii Hai' is the hitherto untold story of a middle class girl who fights her way out through a rather different path in an attempt to balance her family and professional life. It is therefore not ironic that someone as level-headed as Kituu who has the probable solutions to all the problems of her family, friends and colleagues, falters at every stage of her own personal crossroads. Her question to herself "Did I do the right thing?" never seems to leave her mind free because of the turmoil she goes through with regards to her various aspects in her life. This is Kituu's journey into the unobtrusive terrain—she is triumphant about her professional life finds herself constantly in the winding path of attaining personal happiness. Katyayani Purohit, or Kituu, however, finds the inner strength to face life and all its surprises, pleasant as well as ugly, as comes out of it all as a winner.

Kituu is newest weapon in SaharaOne's kitty
Sahara One is readying another mega daily soap, promos of which have already started appearing on the channel. But the channel is keeping the Siddhant Cinevision produced show, Kituu... Sabb Jaantii Hai, and its protagonists well under wraps till its proposed launch on 14 November.
Telly Chakkar has however found out that the channel's new find, a theatre veteran of sorts, is Ami Trivedi, who has acted in several Gujarati plays (like Patro Mitro and Rishtey Natey) and has done a voice over or two, also. Kituu,like Shanno and Jassi, will be a woman centric show, we learn. Shama Deshpande, veteran of several TV shows, plays Kituu's mother, who is forever worried about her daughter. Our sources tell us that the Kituu unit is currently shooting in a bungalow in suburban Mumbai in Jogeshwari.
Producer Manish Goswami, however refused to comment on the show.
Meet Kituu, Sahara One's new primetime girl
Dressed in beige capris and a printed blue Tee, Ami looks like any other girl fresh out of college. She may not exactly make heads turn, but the fair and pretty damsel manages to catch your eye alright. It's her smile that captivates. And that is precisely what the makers of Kituu Sabb Jaanti Hai are hoping to cash upon.
Katyaini or Kituu as she is fondly called by everyone in Chandni Chowk is supposed to be a Miss know-all. She will solve others' problems chutki mein but when it comes to her own life, she falters. She is her father's favourite child and the leader of her little gang in the mohalla. Mind you, the gang is made up of boys. Talkative and mischievous on one hand, emotional and sensitive on the other, Kituu is a much-loved, pampered brat till circumstances force her to transform from a carefree girl to a responsible adult.
Though only a few episodes have been shot, Ami has already started living the character of Kituu. "That's because Kituu is very much like me. She has all the traits that I have," smiles Ami. Like Kituu, Ami is the apple of her father's eye (she has a brother Karan), is friendly by nature, and like the character, is at the crossroads of her life, having graduated a couple of years ago from Jai Hind College. Most importantly, like Kituu, Ami also loves breaking rules. "Not the ones that cause harm but I end up doing things that are not always approved by my father," sighs Ami.
For instance, her decision to take up acting as a profession was met with stiff resistance by dad Tushar Trivedi even though he himself is associated with theatre. "Like all Gujarati fathers, he wanted me to complete my education and get married," she laughs. Ironically, it was because of her father only that Ami had landed up as a child artiste on stage. By the time, she was in her teens, the acting bug had bitten her and she was determined to be an actress. Equally determined to help her daughter's dream come true was her progressive mother who encouraged her to follow her heart.
And so Ami who had already faced the camera as a child in serials like Zee Horror Show, Humrahi, a couple of Gujarati telefilms and one Didi directed by Prakash Jha in Hindi, was more than happy to pick up from where she had left off, after finishing her education.
When she heard about a new serial, Ami like any other aspirant, auditioned for the role of Kituu and was chosen among 40-45 girls. Says producer Manish Goswami, "Ami suited the role to 'T' as far as the look and performance is concerned. She has a theatre background which makes her a disciplined artiste." This will be the first serial from Siddhant Cinevision to be aired on Sahara One and Manish has a lot of expectations. "It's a serial every girl aged between 17-25 will easily relate to," he states.
Set in North-India, Kituu is dressed in two plaits, a collared kurta with 3/4th sleeves and loose pyjamas. The retro look, however, will last only as long as she is in Delhi. Once she comes to amchi Mumbai and finds her true calling as a reporter in a channel, Kituu will be transformed into a contemporary, hep woman sporting latest jeans, skirts, chudidars and suits. But more than the look, it's the profession that has Ami's ardenalin rushing. She can't wait to be a journalist on the small-screen. "I like Barkha Dutt and she will definitely be my inspiration for the role," she gushes.
Kituu Sabb Jaanti Hai will be aired from November 14, Monday-Thursday at 9.30 pm
(6 December 2005 8:00 pm) MUMBAI: After Star Plus, Sony and Zee, it is now Sahara One Television's turn to reschedule its primetime shows from originally airing them four days a week to five days a week. With effect from 5 December, the channel's primetime shows Hare Kkaanch Ki Choodiyan (8.30 pm) Woh Rehne Waali Mehlon Ki (9 pm) and Kituu Sabb Jaanti Hai (9.30 pm) will now be telecast from Monday - Friday instead of the original Monday - Thursday. The Friday primetime slot on Sahara One, which was until now occupied with movies will now shift to the weekends (Saturday and Sunday). Speaking to Indiantelevision.com on the reason behind the change, Sahara One Television COO Purnendu Bose said, "Our weekday primetime shows are doing well and these demand appointment viewing. It is a myth that weekdays are from Monday to Thursday and the weekend is from Friday to Sunday. We have extended our shows to Friday so as to have consistent programming for the week. With this shift we are also looking at consolidating the 8.30 pm - 10 pm band." However, Sahara One's latest offering Saath Rahega Always, which airs at 7.30 pm will continue to air from Monday to Thursdays for the time being. When queried as to why the new show was being left out of this shuffle, Bose said, "The show has just started and as of now we don't have a sufficient bank. As as when that technicality is taken care of, Saath Rahega Always will also be included in the Friday lineup."

Kituu Sabb Jaantii Hai, Sahara One
Tell tale: Katyayani Purohit aka Kituu, the most popular girl in her area, sets out to be a television journalist. No prizes for guessing her character is based on Barkha Dutt.
Who's in it: Ami Trivedi, earlier seen in Khichdi, Babul Ki Duayen Leti Ja and Kumkum, plays the bratty Kituu.
What's hot: The storyline, for a change, doesn't seem regressive with the protagonist choosing to become an investigative journalist over a housewife.
What's not: With barely any emphasis on the news stories Kituu covers, this one looks like another emotional family drama.
Kituu is the hot new journo on the block!
K ituu has arrived! And she is not just any girl next door -- she is a journalist, who takes her career seriously!
SaharaOne television announced its latest show, Kituu Sabb Jaantii Hai, at the ITC Grand Hotel in central Mumbai on Wednesday, and going by the showreel presented at the press meet, Kituu...looks like a show that can make heads turn. The show will be aired Monday to Thursday at 9:30 pm. As has been already reported by Telly Chakkar, the show is being produced by Manish Goswami's Siddhanth Cinevision.(Kituu is newest weapon in SaharaOne's kitty)
In this season of gals being launched as the face of shows, SaharaOne's initative does not come as a surprise. They already have Rani (Woh Rehne...) Shyamlee (Hade Kaanch Ki Choodiyan) and Irawati (Kohinoor) as the faces of the channel, now Kituu has been added to the list and this for sure makes the Monday to Thursday primetime slot look good!
"We are not following a me too policy! We have already have women who have played central characters on the channel, but Kituu is different. I believe that there is a Kituu in all of us and we have tried to get that out. Moreover, women oriented shows have done well, we can't deny that!" says head of programming, (fiction), SaharaOne, Kumud Choudhury.
When asked if Kituu's professional life would take a backseat, once the show progresses, both Manish and Kumud denied that this will happen. "We must not forget that Kituu is a family entertainer, but the professional life is also very important part of the show," says Manish.
All seems well with Kituu...at the moment...but only time will tell if it can match the success of Jassi...
