Colors has confirmed that new fiction ‘Belan Waali Bahu’ will take the slot left vacant by ‘Bigg Boss 11’ next week.
The reality show comes to an end this weekend and from Monday, ‘Belan Waali Bahu’ will take the 22:30 (India) and 21:00 (UK) slot.
Produced by Shoonya Square, the show is directed by Deven Bhojani and helmed by Dheeraj Sarna (co-producer, writer and lead actor) and Ved Raj. ‘Belan Waali Bahu’ traces the lives of a mismatched couple, Roopa Awasthi and Amarnath and how an ordinary item like a belan (rolling pin) changes life as they know it.
Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, Colors, said, “Often many men don’t use a belan but love to have rotis. Adding a little humor to this concept, Belan Waali Bahu narrates a story of Amarnath who always took his wife Roopa for granted and the famous belan never existed for him. Belan is mightier than the sword it can feed you or kill you but in our show it kills and believe me it will make the viewers die laughing. We promise a first of its kind show that highlights the dynamics between a dead husband, wife and a belan.”
Speaking about the show, Actor, Writer and Producer Sarna said, “When I started illustrating Amarnath’s character, it somewhat grew on me. And as luck would have it, my team was also convinced that I should play the character myself. Amarnath is neither a typical romantic hero nor an egotistical male; he is a simple man who is never at peace and is perpetually frustrated. The show has a unique storyline; that coupled with the chemistry of all the characters will surely keep the viewers in splits.”
Along with Krystle D’souza and Dheeraj Sarna in the lead roles, the show will feature stellar pillars of comedy like Sudhir Pandey, Bhavana Balsavar, Mushtaq Khan, Sikandar Kharbanda, Parijat, Shraddha Jaiswal and Sunayana Fozdar in key roles.
