The handsome Mohit Malik
, who was last seen essaying the role of Bharat in Zee TV
's Banoo Main Teri Dulhann
will now play the male lead in Sony and Edit II'
s upcoming show, Jeet Jayenge Hum.
The promos of the show are already on air. The show has RJ Sana Sheikh in the lead role, and the story focuses on her fight against child labor.
We had reported earlier that Ali Merchant
was finalized to play the male lead in the show. However, our source informs us that, "There has been a change in this. Ali Merchant will not be taking up this show for certain reasons. Mohit Mallik who was earlier chosen as one of the options will play the protagonist now".
Mohit will be seen in a different kind of role, which he has not played before. "Though the shoot with the other actors are on, the male lead has not begun shooting. Mohit who has been finalized will now start shoot in the next few days", further informs our source.
We tried calling Mohit Malik
, but he remained unavailable for comments.
We also tried to get in touch with Ali Merchant, but he too remained unavailable.
As reported earlier, Akhilendra Mishra
plays the main antagonist in the show; he owns a bangle making company where he drags all the children for work. Jeet Jayenge Hum also has Ayesha Kaduskar of Chote Miyan fame, and she plays one of the siblings of Sana. Child artistes Shruti and Namit Shah play the other siblings of the female lead. Sana's parents will be played by Nawaaz and Nupur Alankar.
If all goes well, Jeet Jayenge Hum is expected to launch in December. The show in all probability might take the 8.30 PM slot, but the channel and production house are yet to take the final call.
For the uninitiated, Naman Shaw
was earlier chosen to play the male lead(before Ali Merchant), but he had also opted out due to certain reasons. Reporter and Author: Srividya Rajesh
