Zee TV is now eager to bring in few new shows to stay in the TRP race. While Rajita Sharma's soft romantic show is one, the other will be the so called adaptation of Devdas to be produced by DJ's Creative Unit.

Tentatively titled 'Sangini' the story of DJ's upcoming show will be based on a guy's life who cannot get married to his childhood sweetheart. This agony gets him addicted to alcohol after which his life completely changes.

As reported exclusively by Tellybuzz that Iqbal Khan, Binny Sharma and Anjali Abrol play the leads in the show while Aruna Irani will play the mother of male lead.

Rushad Rana who was last seen playing a cameo in Dil Mil Gaye will be a part of this Zee show. Trishna, Deepak Qazir and Sudha Chandran are the prominent faces in the show.

As per our source, "Rushad Rana will be playing role of Iqbal's elder brother. He is a miserly character who is calculative in terms of money. Trishna who is presently seen in Sahara One's show 'Shorr' will play his wife and Bahu of the house. Veteran actor Deepak Qazir plays the grandfather of Iqbal and Rushad's character. Iqbal Aziz who was seen in Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai will play the role of Aruna Irani's husband. Sudha Chandran has been finalized to play Dai-Ma of the female lead."

When contacted, Rushad Rana confirmed the news, "Yes in this serial I'm enacting the role of Iqbal's elder brother and I'm playing a full fledged role after a gap of 3 years."

too accepted that she is part of the serial, "I play wife of Rushad Rana's character and mine is a very positive role."

Our Khabroo tells us that, "The cast has recently shot for the promos of the serial. The first outdoor schedule is to take place in Haridwar after which the unit will shoot another schedule in Delhi. The channel is very upbeat about the serial and aims to get it on air without any further delays."

The show is expected to launch in last week of August or early September.
