Group ouster for Kumkum crew
   By: Shaheen Parkar
   February 2, 2006

Sumeet (Hussain), Kumkum (Juhi Parmar) and Jatin (Anuj Saxena) in Kumkum
Two days ago, the entire crew of BAG Films daily, Kumkum — Ek Pyara Sa Bandhan (Star Plus), was shunted out. Though a change of directors may be routine in the TV world, it is rare to find the director and his entire team as well as the writer all being shown the door together.

Who went?

Director Arvind Babbal, Second Director Noel Smith and writer Mahesh Pandey are out of the afternoon drama produced by Anuradha Prasad. When the cast reported for shooting on Monday morning, they were surprised to see no action on the sets and more action behind the camera.

Old director back

Confirming the development, creative head for Kumkum, Sancheeta Bose, says, "Yes, we have changed the writer and the director.

The new director is Ashish Patil, while the screenplay will now be written by Farhan Salaruddin and Barry Dhillon. In fact, Ashish was Kumkum's director in the initial stages of the show."

As for the reason for the ouster, Bose says, "As it is a daily, it is routine to change the thought processes and rejuvenate the show."

When asked, Pandey said, "Yes, I am no longer part of Kumkum. I had been writing for over a year now. I don't want to say anything more now."

Pandey has been synonymous with several Balaji shows, like Kahaanii Ghar Ghar Kii, Kasautii Zindagii Kay and Kahiin To Hoga. He also played Shekhar in Kasuatii Zindagii Kay.

Other show

Babbal said he was no longer directing Kumkum as BAG Films had asked him to direct their new weekly show, Akhiyon Ke Jharokhe Se, slated to air on Star Plus soon. "It's not that I have been asked to go. It's just that I will now direct their other show," he explains. Babbal had been directing Kumkum for almost a year. He earlier directed Kesar, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii and Kahiin To Hoga.

Real reason

The real reason why the writer and director were replaced seems to be their obsession for details that was proving to be too time-consuming in a daily shoot. But with both Babbal and Pandey preferring not to divulge details, the truth behind their exit remains a mystery.


Kumkum track

Hussain, who was on leave for his honeymoon, is slated to resume shooting from today, according to producers, BAG Films. The track has Kumkum (Juhi Parmar) in a dilemma as she is caught between her former husband Jatin (Anuj Saxena) who has reappeared in her life, and present hubby Sumeet (Hussain).

Meanwhile, Krissh (Pannkit Thacker) will be shown romantically involved with Kamiya (Dimple Inamdar
