If the buzz, is to be believed the show will be with built with the backdrop of honour killing. A story about the mother and daughter and how the mother fights her fears to keep her daughter safe in order to provide her daughter a fruitful future.
A little birdie tells us, "Show will be set up in Uttar Pradesh and will be based on Yadav family. The casting for the same is in progress. But nothing is finalized as of now. The show is finalized and it will mostly be on air in the last week of august."
When contacted producer Pearl Grey refused to comment.
Writer Shanti Bhushan who has been penning the successful show of Pratigya along with Pearl Grey will be the writer for this show too. We spoke to writer Shanti Bhushan who said, "We are again dealing with a socially relevant issue in our next show. It will talk about the sufferings that one has to endure in a society that is brutal to feelings such as love and relationships."
When we asked him whether it's based on Noida killings he quipped, "Honour killings is just a backdrop but we are going a level higher and will be dealing with issues in a different way."
Our source further informs, "The makers of Pratigya were to bring on a show based on the trial and tribulations of devdasis. They were to shoot in Karnataka for the same. However, this particular idea got shelved and the channel and production house are now eagerly looking forward to this new concept."
Incidentally we hear that Colors is also working on a similar concept. With Colors working quickly towards the launch of their show it looks as though Star Plus will face a stiff challenge and might be forced to alter the storyline.
For the uninitiated, Swastika Pictures had earlier suffered as their show Chaand Jalne Laga , a love story set up in the locales of Himachal Pradesh was shelved because Rajan Shahi and Star Plus came up with their love story Chand Chupa Badal Mein set in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh.
Let's wait and watch what Pearls' next has to offer to audience…
