Mumbai: Pintoo Guha and Rupali Guha’s FilmFarm India had a phenomenal run on channel Colors, with their very popular show, Uttaran.
Now the production house is all set to bring a love story on the same channel, with a Banaras backdrop.
Well, the channel and maker have cast a big and popular name to play the male lead on the show and the guy will be none other than Mishal Raheja, Colors’ very own Dutta Bhau of Laagi Tujhse Lagan.
Our source shares, “An extensive search was conducted to lock the male lead. Many known and popular names were considered. And now, Mishal has almost been finalized, and is on the verge of signing on the dotted lines.”
Mishal has not played a continuity role after Laagi Tujhse Lagan. However, he has appeared on shows Mano Ya Na Mano, Punar Vivah – Ek Nayi Umeed, Encounter and Maharakshak Aryan.
We tried contacting Mishal, but did not get through to him.
Mishal will be paired opposite a newbie on the show.
