Mumbai: Producer Ila Bedi Datta, as we know, is coming up with a unique fiction drama on Zee TV, titled Lajwanti.
The producer was on the lookout for a very intense actor to portray the powerful role of the protagonist Sid Makkar’s on-screen father. Well, we now hear that Ila has finally got the ‘perfect’ face for this character at her home!!
Yes, you heard it right!! Ila’s brother and former actor Manik Bedi has been cast for the above-said role is what we get to hear!!
As per a reliable source, “Manik will play the patriarch in the male lead’s family. He will be a person who would be extremely powerful; a man who can scare anyone and everyone with his sheer presence.”
Coming to Manik, he has had a fruitful Bollywood career earlier, with films like Zinda Dil, Maseeha, Jaane Jigar, Dand Nayak, Bhai Bhai to his credit.
For the uninitiated, Ila Bedi has two brothers Rajat Bedi and Manik Bedi, both of whom have been yester year actors.
We tried calling up Producer Ila Bedi for a confirmation, but she did not respond to our calls and messages.
Here’s wishing Manik a huge welcome to the small screen!!
