Colors’ new show earlier titled ‘Sangharsh’ will now be called ‘Dil Se Dil Tak ‘. The project seems to be embroiled in some controversy or the other from the time it was announced. Now, the buzz is that Siddharth Shukla has been ousted from the project. It was supposed to be his comeback vehicle in the daily fiction space after Balika Vadhu.
The producers of the show Shashi and Sumeet Mittal have been looking for the main lead for a long time. Many big names like Vishal Karwal, Shashank Vyas and Mishal Raheja were considered for the role. Mishal was almost finalized to play the part but there were some issues with regards to the payment. So finally, Siddharth was chosen but apparently he had too many terms and conditions, which made the makers rethink on their decision of casting Siddharth.
Siddharth Shukla started his career as a model and made his TV debut with Sony TV’s ‘Babul Ka Angan Chootey Naa’. Later, he was seen with Sanjeeda Sheikh in ‘Jaane Pehchanne Se Ajnabi ‘. He got fame when he was paired opposite the late Pratyusha Banerjee in Balika Vadhu. He has done reality shows like Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Khatron Ke Khiladi. Siddharth also made his Bollywood debut with ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania ‘ opposite Alia Bhatt .
This show would have marked his return to the daily fiction space four years after he exited Balika Vadhu. But it seems his comeback is still not happening. Currently, the makers are scouting for a new actor to play the main lead as the shoot has to start from next month. Sanjeeda Sheikh and Jasmine Bhasin have already been short-listed to play the female leads . The show is based on the topic of surrogate motherhood and will be a social family drama. Based on film ‘Chori Chori Chupke Chupke’ the show will take Bigg Boss’ slot in January.
The show was earlier titled ‘ Sangharsh ‘then changed to ‘Kiraye Ki Kokh’ but finally the name has been finalised to ‘Dil Se Dil Tak’. The rhyming titles are the latest trend in TV town and most of the shows have names like Kuch Rang Pyar Ke Aise Bhi , Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai and so on. So, that’s why the channel zeroed in this name. (Also Read: Sanjeeda Sheikh and NOT Tina Dutta bags the lead role in Sangharsh with Jasmine Bhasin and Siddharth Shukla!)

They hire the services of a surrogate mother. The story is about the emotional journey and love triangle between husband, wife and the surrogate mother.
