Why is Rithvik Dhanjani repeating himself?

The actor has been signed by BBC Worldwide Productions and Lost Boy Productions for their upcoming show on MTV

Rithvik Dhanjani quit the Ekta Kapoor soap, Pavitra Rishta and went on to do Nach Baliye 6. After winning the reality show with his belle Asha Negi, the actor was busy doing shows and performing all over the world.

Rithvik was last seen in Star Parivaar Awards where he performed with Asha. According to the recent news, during his break Rithvik had signed up for the new MTV show, Fanaah – An impossible love story.

The promos suggest that Rithvik is playing a werewolf in the telly series. If you remember, the actor had played a similar character in Star One’s Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani. When quizzed about his role the actor told a website, “As far as I am concerned, this part I am playing is completely berserk and something that no one will expect. You have to see it to believe it. It is magical!”

Well we’ve already seen the actor as a werewolf, considering he is doing the same role – how different can it really be? The fangs, body language and mannerisms will only bring back old memories, no? We were really hoping the actor would come back to the small screen with something that he’s never done before. Alas! That’s not the case. The series will apparently be featured over several seasons depending upon the TRPs it receives.

Giving him the benefit of doubt, we really hope the show is as different as Rithvik claims. Fingers crossed!
