Crime, mystery, drama and romance together make an entertaining script. On the same lines, Zee TV and producer Ila Bedi are all set to present their new series Detective Didi, that will star Thapki actor Manish Goplani and Tu Mera Hero fame Sonia Balani. The show will present the love tale between a street-smart detective played by Sonia, and a macho cop, Manish. The show will be completely shot in Delhi and launch in December. Ila Bedi had earlier produced Hitler Didi starring Rati Pandey for Zee TV.
As per sources, “Sonia’s character will be a bubbly young girl, who would enjoy taking up challenges and solve mysterious cases around her. The show would primarily focus on her personal and professional life. She will meet an honest and intelligent cop and together they will team up to fight crimes. Their love story will also take precedence during the course of the show.”
An excited Manish told indianexpress.com, “I am really happy for this new journey. As an actor, I am also glad that I never really sat idle after my show Thapki went off air. I was busy with Indonesian shows and now this has come my way. It’s the love of my fans and well-wishers completely. Detective Didi is going to be a very new experience with lots of expectations and I will work my best towards it.”
Talking about his character, the young actor further shared, “This is the first time I am playing a cop, so really excited. Also, we have been told that we will be shooting at live locations in Delhi, which will be another first for me.”
When we reached out to Sonia, she said, “We are in discussion about the show and can chat about it once things are finalised.” Though the title has a resemblance to Hitler Didi, producer Ila Bedi confirmed to us that the show is not a sequel but a completely new offering.
