TellyBuzz gives you details about the major cast involved in COLORS' upcoming show, Mukti Bandhan...


Shobhna Desai Productions, makers of the cult show Hamari Devrani will be coming up with a new show on COLORS, titled Mukti Bandhan. The show is being written by popular Writer Vipul Mehta, who has earlier penned for shows like Koshish Ek Aasha, Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kasturi, Kya Hoga Nimmo Ka to name a few.

The promo of the show is presently on air, and speculations are ripe that Mukti Bandhan is loosely based on the story of Dhirubhai Ambani. However, our source from the industry clarifies that the story is adapted from a very popular Gujarati Novel written by Harkisan Mehta, titled Mukti Bandhan.

Our source tells us, "The production house has bought rights to convert the novel into a daily soap. The story is about the clash of ideologies, and is about a self-made man Ishwarlal Motilal Virani".

"Shiv Subramaniam who is a famous writer in Bollywood with films like Parinda, Teen Patti, 1942 A Love Story to his credit will play the central character of I.M. Virani. Former South Indian actress and theatre artist Surbhi Zaveri will play his wife. Noted actors, Utkarsh Majumdar and Meenal Patel essay vital roles in the show".

Mukti Bandhan sees the comeback of Raj Singh of Pavitra Rishta fame in a lead role.

"Siddharth Arora, a new face will play the elder son of I.M. Virani while Raj Singh will play his younger son. Yohana Vachhani, daughter of veteran actor Ajit Vachhani plays the daughter, and Ekta Saraiya who essays the role of Shikha in Hamari Devrani will play the bahu of the house", adds our source.

"Noted Director Ramesh Talwar who has directed movies like Noorie, Basera etc will be seen playing a vital role. Esha Kansara, a theatre artist from Ahmedabad has a key role to play. Nazneen Patel who was last seen in Sahara One's Main Aisi Kyun Hoon will also be part of the show", informs our source.

We hear that there will be about 17 prominent characters seen in Mukti Bandhan, and the focus will be on multi-tracking.

The story is about Ishwarlal Motilal Virani who is not a God fearing man and rather believes in his abilities to become successful in life. His life takes a major turn when a young girl from London, played by Esha Kansara comes into his life and changes his outlook towards life.

We tried talking to Shiv Subramaniam, but he remained unavailable. Raj Singh too was unavailable for comment.

Nazneen Patel though confirmed her presence in the show.

Mukti Bandhan is expected to launch on January 10th at the 9.30 PM slot on COLORS…
