Sameer Soni In Saakshi
There will be a change of track in Cinevistaas' weekly serial Saaksshi which airs on Sony.
Lots of surprises are in store in the show. Says Siddharth Malhotra, associate producer and creative director of Cinevistaas, "Lots more emotion and drama have been added. Saaksshi will have a long, linear track now.
There will be plenty of outdoors and we will shoot in places like Leh and Ladakh. We will also be introducing new characters in the next few weeks."
In a major twist to the story, there will be a confrontation between the main protagonist Saaksshi and her boss, Shekhar Gupta (Sameer Soni) who is the head of the intelligence company Astra. T
he buzz is that Shekhar Gupta dies in the serial next week. "You will have to wait and watch," smiles Malhotra without denying it.
Without confirming the change Soni says, "Certain creative decisions have been taken to shock the audience and raise the TRPs. These changes were not a part of the original story that was narrated to me." Beyond this he is not willing to comment saying it should be "a surprise."
Cinevistaas has apparently not decided whether to kill off Soni's character completely through an accident (death-in-the-line-of-duty) or have him come back as a mole for the Pakistanis.
Which would be a complete shocker as this would have him leave Astra, become its arch-rival and bring him in direct confrontation with Saaksshi.
Soni attired in a Pathani suit could be a get-up change for the character. Apart from Saaksshi, Soni also stars as the charismatic business tycoon, Purab Mehra, in Sony's popular soap Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin.
Mouli Ganguly, who plays Saaksshi, says, "The story told to me earlier has changed for reasons better known to the makers. They have told me it's for the betterment of the serial. The incidents have changed." Ganguly plays an undercover cop in Astra.
Incidentally, after Saaksshi changed from its one-hour slot on Saturdays to a half-hour slot on Friday (8.30 pm), its TRPs have risen. Sony has approved 52 more episodes.
