The show basically portrays the tussle of a trader between his dutiful wife and his courtesan love. It was titled Suhaag Ke Nupur.
A little birdie tells us, "The show of Dr. Dwivedi has been in the making for more than a year now. Initially there was an extensive search made to find the girl to play the courtesan who had to have great dancing skills. Once the cast was locked, a pilot was shot and was approved by the channel. Some big names like Tom Alter, K.K. Raina were to play vital roles in the show. Both the lead girls were fresh faces, and Gagan Malik was to play the male lead.The show was getting postponed for one reason or the other, and the channel has ultimately taken the decision to scrap the project".
We contacted Dr. Chandraprakash Dwivedi's wife, Mandira Dwivedi and she confirmed the news saying,"That's right,the show has been put on a hold".
Dr. Dwivedi, we hear, is presently working on a mega budget movie with Sunny Deol.
We just hope we do see the great epic being made into a TV show sooner or later...
