We are marketing aggressively for the story that opens on Sept. 20, on Monday."

Every artist we have roped in comes with a said reputation, and they wanted to know how long the role would go in this storyline. Convincing them was a tough task indeed. We have quite a big story to tell, so we had to extend from 8 episodes to 16 episodes. This further created problem, as we had to convince actors to give further dates."
