If all goes well, Nausheen the face of Balaji Telefilms' Kkusum will be seen playing a significant character in Imagine's new show 'Beend Banoonga Ghodi Chadungaa'.
The show is to be produced by Endemol India and noted Writer Farhan. S. Beend Banoonga… will be a male centric show wherein the story will revolve around a guy whose character is loosely based on Govinda's in the movie Raja Babu.

Apart from Nausheen, the show will see some prominent faces like Ragesh Asthana, Himani Shivpuri, Akshay Anand, Madhav Deochake, Neha Mehta. Anuj Thakur who is presently seen in Star Plus' Kaali Ek Agnipareeksha will play the lead in the show. A new face Jayshree has been roped in as the female lead.

"Ragesh Asthana and Nausheen play the male lead's parents, while Akshay Anand is the boy's uncle. Madhav and Neha Mehta play a couple, with Madhav being the elder brother of the boy", adds our source.
When contacted, Nausheen told us, "Talks are on, and I am certainly getting back to television. But I am not yet clear with the show I am taking, as I have two projects in hand".
Madhav who played the lead in Hamari Devrani confirmed the news, but refused to divulge any information.
When contacted, Neha Mehta said, "Yes I am back to television. I was away from the limelight after my marriage. Now that I have completed a full year of honeymoon, it is certainly time to work (smiles)".
