Another soap opera goes on the air

A rich spoilt girl gets married into a conservative family

NEW DELHI: Star Plus channel's latest soap opera "Sasural Genda Phool" revolving around the life of a rich spoilt girl who gets married into a conservative family goes on air from March 1.

The serial is a light-hearted story of Suhana (Ragini Khanna) who loses her mother at the tender age of five and grows up under the shadow of an indulgent father, essayed by Mahesh Thakur. The doting dad agrees to her every whim and fancy.

However, he wants her to marry Ishaan, an Information Technology professional. After much dilly-dallying, Suhana agrees to tie the knot with Ishaan, who comes from a conservative family. This is in contrast to her own liberal, upper-class upbringing.

An amalgamation

According to scriptwriter Mitali Bhattacharya, the serial is an amalgamation of her observation of today's new generation and her creative imagination.

"I have a 21-year-old son at home and I interact with a lot of young people living in the city. The character of Suhana has some facets of these youngsters and I have used my own imagination to make her interesting."

Though Suhana breaks expensive crockery and shouts at servants, the scriptwriter insists that she is not a bad girl.

"In fact she has a heart of gold. She understands the meaning of a relationship and what it means to become a member of a new family after getting married," said Mitali, at a press conference here on Thursday.

As for the accusation that the serial's title has been borrowed from Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra's "Dilli 6", Star Plus head content strategy Gaurav Banerjee said it was purely co-incidental.

"We have not deliberately lifted the title from the Bollywood movie. The title was catchy and we thought it would increase the curiosity level of the viewers. Though the A. R. Rehman's song was quite popular in 'Dilli 6', it is actually a folk song. When I was growing up in Madhya Pradesh it was quite popular. As for the copyright violation, we have taken all necessary permission," he adds.

Completely different

On the charge that the serial has been adapted from a serial "Ogo Bondhu Sundori" on Star Plus Bengali channel, Gaurav said it was a successful serial in West Bengal and the story has been replicated in the Hindi serial with changes in the characters of the star cast.

Ragini Khanna, who was selected for the role through an audition conducted by producer Ravi Ojha, said her role was completely different from her character in her earlier serial "Bhaskar Bharti".

"In that serial I was shown as a man who gets transformed into a woman. So the two characters cannot be identical by any stretch of imagination."

The serial also stars veteran actor Sudhir Pandey as a 75-year-old grandfather who is full of beans.

"I am the family's patriarch who shares a funny relationship with my wife Gayatri. The duo provides comic relief as they are constantly sparring with each other."

Launch of Genda Phool @ Hotel Oberoi, Delhi on 18th Feb ,2010

Ragini Khanna to make her Bollywood debut

Ragini Khanna of Bhaskar Bharti fame is back to work with
STAR Plus' new show Sasural Genda Phool. In the show she plays the female lead character Suhana, who gets married to Ishaan played by Jay Soni. Besides this role, Ragini will also make her Bollywood debut.

We heard that you are making your Bollywood debut, is that true?
"Yes, I have taken on a film project, which should start rolling soon. It is too early to reveal my character's name and my co-actors, as very soon there would be a formal announcement. I play the leading lady of the film."

What is your uncle, Govinda's reaction?
"He is happy with my decision to move up the ladder. It's a natural progression for an actor these days..."

Has your uncle ever advised you on your career and life?
"No, he never sat me down one afternoon to tip me on life, movies and career progression. However, we talk quite often. I tell him everything that is happening in my life. At times, he gets nostalgic and shares his growing up stories with me. There is a lot to learn from his past experiences."

Would you quit TV for movies now?
"No. If Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan and other big stars can do films and TV shows simultaneously, why cant I..?. I can dabble in both. I will sail through."

Now, in your new show Sasural Genda...what is your character like?
"I am playing a motherless girl, Suhana, who is spoilt. Her father, who can do anything to see a smile on her face, brings her up. It's a fun character. Initially, she has money to throw around but she eventually marries a middle class guy. Suhana is temperamental; she smiles and gets angry in seconds. She thinks she can dictate to the world."

Coming back to your cousin Narmada, who is also debuting in films, so is there a competition in the family?
"No, no. There is no competition with her. We are two different planes and are as different from each other as pasta and daal-chawal and now don't ask me who's who..."

Coming back to your show, you are working with Supriya Pilgaonkar, your mother in your first show, Radha ki Betiyaan..?
"I still have to shoot with Supriyaji. I have grown up watching her show Tu Tu Main Main. She has taught me a lot on our first show together. So, now again, I am eagerly waiting to shoot with her."
