The second season of the iconic medical drama Sanjivani went on air last year with a bang. Surbhi Chandna and Namit Khanna played the leads in the second season. Recently, the makers celebrated the 100-episode landmark with a cliffhanger leaving the audiences perplexed. With one of the main characters Dr. Shashank Gupta played by Mohnish Bahl, dying in an accident, viewers are wondering where the show is headed now. Show's producer Sidharth Malhotra reveals that they have planned a 3-year leap to mark this milestone. Interestingly, the same thing was also done in the first season of Sanjivani. The show will progress with an ensemble cast, retaining popular characters while adding in a fresh flavour with some new talent.
Malhotra is currently on the lookout for young and driven actors who can transform themselves into compelling characters in Sanjivani while maintaining the light-heartedness of the show. He shares that the show, while being driven by the backbone of medicine and romance, will have newer narratives that will resonate with today’s audiences. “Sanjivani has been a journey of growth from the day we started off. The script of the story has always been ahead of its time and we have been lucky to have extremely talented people on board, who have been the forces behind hitting a century”, says Siddharth Malhotra.
Explaining why they have planned a leap in the storyline, he adds, "I strongly believe that all stories are interesting till a point and stretching them beyond that point doesn't make sense. A leap will allow us to add new dimensions, new characters and some new stories to the show, making it relevant and interesting. There will be 4 new characters introduced after the leap. I have not revealed this earlier but we are also introducing a new protagonist and his family."
He adds, "Over time, we have realised that the magic of the show is in its people. The flawed characters resonate with people and help create a realistic story. Each actor brings in his own unique characteristic to their role and we hope to find some more like-minded talented young individuals who can take the story forward and connect with today’s generation."
