The trend of donning double role seems to be picking up on the small screen shows as more and more makers are getting attracted towards the concept for their daily soaps which ensure better TRP’s for the show as well as the channel. Recent examples of the double role characters which come to mind are that of Ichcha (Uttaran), Indira (Hitler Didi) and Roli (Sasural Simar Ka).
Continuing with the trend is Sony TV’s longest running detective show “CID” wherein actor Ali Hassan will be seen essaying a double role character for one of the episodic. Ali who has previously been a part of the show is excited at the thought of getting to portray two different characters all at the same time.
The episode featuring Ali Hassan which was supposed to have started shooting has got delayed due to the reasons of the natural calamity that has occurred in Uttarakhand recently. As the show’s producer-director B P Singh along with Dayanand Shetty aka Insp Daya have proceeded to the flood affected areas to provide assistance to the people who have been badly hit by the devastation.
