Variety is key to success!
Believing in the ideology, Zee TV has weaved a bouquet full of shows soon to hit airwaves.
Focussing on one such initiative, is acclaimed TV director Ravi Raj’s upcoming social drama (his first as a producer) for Zee TV starring Ankit Gera as the lead.
Ravi Raj has a strong resume helming successful projects in the past like Swaragini, Saubhagyalakshmi and Silsila Pyaar Ka among others.
Now, we have exclusive information on the casting of the female protagonist who would romance Ankit in the show.
Our sources have informed that Siya Ke Ram fame actress Yukti Kapoor has been brought on board. Her character will be that of a dabang (fearless) girl. The show is titled as Agniphera.
Apart from Yukti, Vedant Sawant (last seen in Siya Ke Ram and Gangaa) and newbie Simran Kaur are also a part of the starcast.
Newbie Simran is a voiceover artist of a popular anime series Doraemon’s character Nobita. Simran will play a lawyer. Vedant Sawant will pair opposite Simran.
The project is set to go on floors soon.
When we called Yukti she said, “I have not yet signed the contract.”
When we buzzed newbie Simran, she confirmed the news to us.
We tried to connect with Vedant, but could not get through to him.
Producer Ravi Raj did not comment till the time of filing the article.
Agniphera is expected to hit screens end of January or beginning February 2017.
