Anuj Saxena’s maiden production, ‘Kulvaddhu’ seems to be notching up for some real drama in the coming days. It’s been just a few months from its launch, and the hero of the show, Imran Mashkoor Khan aka Shaurya, was unceremoniously dumped. Reason: high handed attitude on the actor’s part.
As per the norms of the industry, somebody’s loss is going to be somebody’s gain! And the lucky guy who has been chosen to fit in Shaurya’s shoes is none other than, Sachin Sharma. He could not have asked for a better opportunity to make a comeback after his impressive act in ‘Vaidehi’.
An excited Sachin says, “Yes, I have been approached by the production house for ‘Kulvaddhu’ and my shoot is scheduled to roll in a couple of days. My character, Shaurya, is a far cry from my earlier role in ‘Vaidehi’. With my vicious portrayal in the latter, I made a lot of people hate me, whereas in ‘Kulvaddhu’ it will just be the opposite! In fact this role has close shades with my character of Krishna in ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’ Its is a role that people will not sympathize with but will also look up to..”
How does he plan to fit in as a replacement, to which the actor replies, “I know it is a challenging task, lending appeal to a character that was not originally yours. But, I believe this can be taken care of if one is a good actor. I will try my best to make my uniqueness come alive through Shaurya.” And when asked about his equation with Imran, the actor replies quite humbly, “I have no idea who Imran is.”
Apart from ‘Kulvaddhu’, Sachin has also signed a film titled Mummy Ji, which also stars big names like Jackie Shroff and Kiran Kher.
And yes, Sachin’s just not the only new addition to the ‘Kulvaddhu’ family. Actor Tarun Khanna (of ‘Sarrkar’ and ‘Kittu Sab Janti Hai’ fame) has also been roped to play a top notch lawyer. The story of ‘Kulvaddhu’ has reached a point where the protagonist Niyati is a suspect in a murder case. In order to save her from the gallows, the Rathore family will hire Dhanraj Singhania (played by Tarun), the best lawyer in the country who is reputed as a legal shark.
Adds Tarun, “I come in as a high profile lawyer, who realizes that Niyati’s case is not another cake walk victory for him. Later, in the plot I will add a surprise dramatic twist which I cannot divulge at the moment.”
But still all vigilant eyes will be angled on Sachin who takes the reigns as the new protagonist. Would the new face of Shaurya be able to strike a chord with the audiences? It’s a matter of some more weeks before we get an honest answer.
