The production and distribution company was in talks with several actors for their planned medical drama, but rumours suggest that it has been stalled for the time being
Endemol was in talks with Star Plus to launch a weekly soap on doctors and had tentatively titled the show Hospital. According to reports, the makers had approached stars like Vibha Anand (currently seen in Mahabharat) and Shritama Mukherjee (last seen in Best Friends Forever) to play lead roles in the new serial.
A little birdie just told us that the makers are apparently facing some crisis and hence would not be able to take plans for the show ahead, mainly because of monetary issues. The new serial was supposed to be on the lines of Star Plus’ popular show Sanjivani starring Mohnish Behl, Gurdeep Kohli and Gaurav Chanana. The production house was ready with the script and had reportedly signed on the lead actors for Hospital, but looks like none of that will happen….for now.
Endemol, which has been associated with shows like Geet Huyi Sabse Parayi, Khatron Ke Khiladi and Miley Jab Hum Tum is busy with Bigg Boss 7, currently being aired on Colors. The company is also co-producing Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming big budget TV show directed by Anurag Kashyap. So is Big B the reason behind the doctor show being put on hold?
