have already heard of Viraf Phiroz being offered the role of the male lead on Kaali – Ek Punar Avatar on Star Plus. However what made the channel
and production house make this move? Kaali – Ek Punar Avatar which has replaced the
highly successful Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? on Star Plus currently has a
TRP of just 0.7, which has consequently brought down the GRP of the channel. If
the grapevine is to be believed, in an attempt to salvage the show Viraf Phiroz
has been roped in to play the male lead on the show.
The handsome and talented actor is to make his
debut in the second or third week of January; the channel is planning to make
his entry as interesting as possible. The 8pm slot is after all peak prime time
and is very competitive. The channel is therefore keeping no stone unturned to
give this show a new lease of life through Viraf's entry.
The actor was previously under a contract by YRF
for two and a half years which allowed him to work in TV shows only under their
banner. After the news of the expiry of his YRF contract was out; channels and
production houses tried to rope him in. Zee TV had offered him a role whereas
he was considered by Colors as a parallel lead to Vivian Dsena in Madhubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon.
Our source adds that a former news snippet about Life OK and Star Plus fighting over starring Viraf has truth in it as he is
after all a highly coveted actor. Both the channels which are under the
umbrella of the Star Parivar, were interested in casting him. Finally the actor
chose to be with Star Plus.
Viraf may not have ultimately replaced Barun Sobti on Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?
but interestingly he has bagged a meaty role on the same time slot on the same
channel. Let's see if his entry will bring about a whiff of fresh air to the
show. For more interesting updates on this show please keep visiting this
