Best known for her stint on Bigg Boss and much hypes national TV wedding with Ali Merchant this small screen actor is all set to cross border
Sara Khan of Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai fame will be seen as the lead protagonist in Indo- Pak telefilm titled Tujhsey Hee Rabta. This TV film which will be aired on Hum TV in Pakistan on Eid (July end), while it’s screening for Indian audience might happen on a later date and the channel is yet to be decided. Yasir Shah who was earlier seen in Balaji’s Sony show Khawish will be the male lead .
According to the producer Saurabh Pandey, who is best known for his shorts film and music videos made under the banner of White Light Army Pictures,“ Tujhsey Hee Rabta will be a love story of a man with two wives. Yasir will play the husband. Sara will play one of the wives and Soni, an Indo Canadian girl will be the second wife. Yasir will be caught between love and duty.” Why two wives? Saurabh explains, “ It is acceptable across the border”
The producer also explains how he landed doing this Indo-Pak telefilm, “ Yasir who had worked with me in Jiya Jale earlier offered me to produce the show. He entered on board as a co-producer as well. He then tied up all the loose ends with Hum TV who green lighted the project .”
The reason Saurabh chose the controversial Sara Khan is also explained by the maker, “She was chosen for she is quite popular and also has Muslim features. The Pakistani team had given a few names which included Mahi Vij as well , Sara was chosen last and she was very cooperative.”
This project was completely shot in India and is complete. And even as the makers are yet to find an Indian Channel to air their film, Saurabh maintained, “We are talking to two or three channels.”
A source told BollywoodLife,“ Producers are talking to Zindagi. But if it does not even other well-known Indian channels will be approached as well.”
Zee TV has brought together India and Pakistan through its new channel Zindagi. Will Saurabh Pandey and director Nivedita Basu along with Zee manage to to bring their priced project to India? We’ll have to wait and watch. As of now Sara Khan‘s fans can catch the petite beauty in yet another avatar in Pakistan and hopefully soon enough in India too.
