'Kaalki' to be finally born as 'Karma' next month

MUMBAI: If all goes well, the long delayed Kaalki should finally make its appearance on Star Plus by the first week of August.

The 45 minute weekly, the first special effects show from the Balaji Telefilms stable, has been re-christened - once again. Some months ago, the production house had changed it from Kaalki to Koi Aa Raha Hai Waqt Badalne. The K factor remains unchanged but now the serial is supposed to be titled Karma. According to Balaji officials, five episodes of the serial are ready while three more are in the final stages of completion.

Earlier scheduled for a November 2002 launch, Karma was then pushed to a post World Cup slot with Star India COO saying earlier this year that "The channel is keen on Kaalki but since all the slots are full till April, the show will have to wait." Targeted at the 5-17 age bracket and based on a superhuman, somewhat on the lines of Batman or Superman, Karma has been mostly shot outdoors. The recent spate of rains has put a dampener on further shooting, say officials.

Also due to make its appearance shortly on Star Plus is the Balaji series Kashish, also re-christened Kahin To Hoga. Miditech's Saara Akash, a series on life in the Indian Air Force, too was scheduled for a launch in the first half of 2003, but is now likely to see the light of day in August.

Kashish is to be a daily soap with a cast comprising newcomers. It is the story of a young girl who is very supportive of her four sisters, but suddenly finds that two men have fallen in love with her. She loves one but gets married to the other. After a few days, her husband is murdered.
