Colors is set to launch a new show called Mission Sapne, which will go on air from March or April onwards. The show produced by Sobo Films will showcase celebrities leveraging their popularity for the benefit of the common man. For instance, Varun Dhawan turned coolie for a day, and Ronit Roy sold cosmetics. While Dhawan, Roy, Singh, Mika Singh have already shot for the show, the episode with Salman Khan will also be canned in the coming days. Talking about the show, Raj Nayak, CEO Colors, says, “Mission Sapne is our effort to showcase the hardships faced by the aam aadmi, and join hands with celebrities from different walks of life to make a difference. The show is an endeavour to give back to the society, by bringing the life of a common man to the limelight.”
Tanaaz Irani makes a comeback
She’ll be seen as a Gujarati wife in the comic series Bh Se Bhade
Tanaaz Irani will be seen on television after a long hiatus. The actress, who has earlier done comedy shows like Zabaan Sambhal Ke and Maniben.com, will be seen as a typical Gujarati wife in Bh Se Bhade. Ask her about her comeback, and she says, “It feels like this is my first day on the sets,” she says, adding, “Now that my kid has grown up, I had the time to take on television shows. When Hats Off Productions came with an offer, I took it on as the character I get to play is quite a lovable one. I sport a traditional Gujarati look, which is a first for me.” The actress plays Deven Bhojani’s wife in the show.
Though Irani is doing a show after a break, nothing has really changed for her. She adds, “If you know your craft well, and enjoy it, then it’s not difficult to pick up after minor hiccups in the beginning. Plus, working with Deven is so good. You end up drawing comparisons because he is so dedicated, and so you automatically end up working harder.” Interestingly, Tanaaz even learnt to ride an auto rickshaw for a sequence in the show.
Going the method actor way!
Ashish Sharma, who essays the role of a ruthless army officer Rudra, in the Colors’ show Rangrasiya, is going to great lengths to give a realistic touch to the character he plays on screen. For a particular sequence in the show that required him to look completely exhausted, the actor didn’t sleep for two nights just to get the feel right. Talking about his attempts, Sharma says, “I had to do a scene where I get beaten up by the goons, and look exhausted, so I didn’t sleep for some nights. Even after pack up, I would go for a run in order to get it right. Hopefully you’ll get to see that on the show.”
