The team of soon-to-be-aired daily soap Desh Ki Beti Nandini was in Bhopal for a week-long shooting schedule. After Indore's Paridhi Sharma bagged the lead role in a costume drama, the latest news from the state is that Bhopal-born Rafi Malik has been chosen to play the lead in the soon-to-be-aired political drama Desh Ki Beti Nandini. Earlier, actor Ravi Dubey was being touted as the central character of the show.

But our source from the show confirmed, "We finalized Rafi for the lead role as we were looking for a fresh face. The character of Rajveer Raghuvanshi (Rafi's character) belongs to a royal family and has that sophisticated air about him. Rafi suited the character perfectly as he is from Bhopal aur usmein woh nawaabon wala tashan hai."

An alumnus of the Bhopal School of Social Sciences, Rafi was also among the finalists in Gladrags Mega Model Hunt in 2011. Talking about his first break, Rafi said, "I started my career as a model and I'm elated with this break. The makers were looking for a new face, and I got lucky. I was also offered a role in Mahabharat, but this interested me more as I'm playing the lead. And it's a happy coincidence for me. I'm starting my acting career shooting in my hometown. I couldn't have asked for more."

The team of the show, including Rafi, was in Bhopal for a week-long shooting schedule, which included the city's malls, lakes and Shahpura's Rainbow Treat. While the show is Delhi-based, the makers preferred to shoot in Bhopal as they found the weather of MP more pleasant. Likewise, Rainbow Treat was converted into Delhi's Paranthe Wali Galli. "The show is based in Delhi, but it becomes very difficult to shoot there outdoors because of the sultry weather. So, we've come here. Bhopal is a shooting-friendly city. In the entire schedule, we never faced any problem and things went off very smoothly," one of the team members said.

Actress Keerti Nagpure, who is playing Nandini, told us, "I am playing a girl-next-door in the show, who raises her voice against atrocities. In reality, I'm a bit reserved. So, doing this role is challenging and I'm working hard on my character." About her Bhopal sojourn, she added, "I loved shooting in Bhopal. The weather is so pleasant. People are also so friendly. I guess they are used to seeing film shoots. So, they don't crowd around you or disrupt your work."

Actor Shahab Khan, who was last seen in Mann Ki Awaaz Pratigya, was impressed with the city's wide roads. "We are so used to seeing Mumbai's mad traffic that Bhopal appears to be a commuter's paradise. The roads are so clean and wide and there are so few vehicles on the roads. Dil khush ho gaya yahan aake. I hope, script mein aur scenes bhi ho jo Bhopal ko suit karein. We will get to come here again," he said.
