Why is Sanaya Irani doing another love story?

Sanaya Irani on Colors

The popular TV actor has wrapped up the shoot of Sony TV’s Chhanchhan and taken off for a well deserved holiday with a back up

Sanaya Irani, who was the lead actor in Chhanchhan has done several TV shows like Left Right Left Season 2 (Sab TV), Radhaa Ki Betiyaan Kuch Kar Dikhayengi (NDTV Imagine), Miley Jab Hum Tum (Star One) – which put her on the map. Post which she signed Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon opposite Barun Sobti and the rest like they say is history.

Now before Chhanchhan, the actor was offered several shows on various channels, including the love story – Do Dil Ek Jaan by Saurabh Tewari’s Nautanki Telefilms. The actor rejected the offer as she wanted to do something different and took up the offer from Sony TV. Clearly, that didn’t work out as planned.

If rumours are to be believed, Nautanki Telefilms is really keen on casting Sanaya in one of their shows. So they’ve offered her another daily soap which is a love story again. The plot revolves around a girl who believes in love and is challenged by a man who thinks it doesn’t exist. Now we are sure that if Sanaya takes this up, she will excel in it, but we can’t really guarantee much about the show, no?

Our issue is that Sanaya will be back doing a role that we all know she’s good at but where’s the challenge in that. Anyway, while we look forward to this show on Colors, we hope the actor dares to attempt something fresh and new. What do you think BollywoodLifers?Subscribe to me on YouTube

    For that the producers have to create the right kind of scripts for actors to chose from various kind of roles/characters.

    Is TV ready for weekend shows and do a Seeta Aur Geeta. Sanaya would excel.

    Again which producer would dare to show a woman as a corporate head wearing power suits and not salwars! Sanaya would excel again.

    Sadly the actors are ready not the PHs. This article needs to be reframed.

    This article needs to be reframed … beginning with the title. The first question is IS Sanaya Irani doing another love story? That is still not confirmed. This website had jumped the gun a few months back and had issue with Sanaya doing a love story after IPK … turned out Sanaya did NOT do a love story after IPK … never saw this website retract that article or issue an apology for posting wrong information..

    Second question … what are the choices she has? ARE there other genres of shows being made, which she could try her hand at? And is Sanaya being offered such shows?

    In the narrow spectrum of shows currently being made on Indian telly, Sanaya has shown remarkable versatility in her roles so far. And in the two love stories she has done, she has essayed completely different characters, polar opposites of each other.

    The question this article poses should first be posed to the PH’s, not the actors. Indian television still has to deliver content which is ‘fresh and new’ … most of it is old wine in older bottles. The actors don’t write or conceptualise shows, the PHs and channels take the call on those, guided by the TRPs.

    First, nothing is confirmed about Sanaya’ s next show. Second, why not? There are so many love stories which are made around the world and so many of them are distinct and poignant. What needs to be different and new is the story, not genre and the role needs to be written well to be challenging. Third, how much choice do TV actors have? There are very limited options in TV shows and an actor has to pick the best from what is being offered to her or him. Despite this Sanaya has shown versatility. Your own article says she tried something different with Chhanchhan. Actors act in shows, they do not produce and make them. This question of content should be posed to production houses, channels and creative teams who conceptualize shows. Given an opportunity which actor would not like to challenge themselves, Sanaya always maintained she likes variety.

    They should make a show with Barun and Sanaya in a brother-sister relationship.

    • Prantika

      LOL seriously, the most celebrated sensational couple as brother sister? That would be the worst decision by the casting members. SaRun fans would never come in terms with that however much different it be.
