Ekta Kapoor always dreamed of making a periodic love story on small screen; however her first attempt in 2008 was a disaster. Her show, ‘Mahabharat’ was to present a new style of storytelling, but it went off air in just few months. She shelved the idea of “Bajirao Mastani” after Sanjay Leela Bhansali expressed his interest of making a film on the same line.
Once again, she is planning to come back on small screen with a periodic love story about Akbar and Jodha. She is expected to make some dramatic changes in the story.
According to the creative director of “Balaji Telefilms”, Tanushree Dasgupta, the serial is going to introduce many new faces in the industry. Auditions are carried out on a large scale for selecting fresh faces.
When questioned about the decision of choosing love story of Akbar and Jodha, she said, our Indian families have always loved to watch the periodic love stories.
Let’s hope, Ekta creates her magic once again on small screen.
