Sahara Manoranjan's 'Saathiya' to debut on 19 July

MUMBAI: And Sahara Manoranjan's bid to provide different than rest entertainment continues. While the channel is still readying its game-plan for the quarter, its will soon debut a youth-romance show Saathiya - Pyaar ka Nayaa Ehsaas.

A Cinevistaas' offering, this half hour daily will debut on 19 July, every Monday to Thursday, at 8:30 pm. The show replaces another daily Zindagi... Teri Meri Kahani.

Saathiya - Pyar kA Nayaa Ehsaas, is the story of three friends -- Kshitij, Aryan and Gayatri. All three are portrayed as strong individuals, who make choices that define their destinies. Touted as a love story of our times, the show is all set to redefine the meaning of love and friendship. 

While Kshitij Singhania aka Amar Upadhyay portrays a twenty something pampered son of export baron Vimal Singhania, his best friend and partner-in-crime Aryan Oberoi (played by Sanjit Bedi) is the son of debonair and ambitious Anish Oberoi (played by Shishir Sharma).

Kshitij's motto is to live life king size, and party hard, cavorting with good-looking women and endless exotic holidays. Aryan, on the other hand has inherited his fathers style but isn't as determined or has the hunger for success. He is as laid back as Kshitij.

Kshitij's father Vimal Singhania, although, doesnt approve of his lifestyle, but the film buff Kshitij couldnt care less. Both friends have a calllous attitude towards love.

The third angle to this story is portrayed by Gayatri (played by Shradha Nigam), a small town girl. Gayatri is smart, intelligent, creative and yet naive and untouched by the complexities of urban life.

Produced by Siddharth Malhotra for Cinevistaas', the creative director for the show is Namit Sharma; the show is directed by Kaushik Ghatak, while the screenplay is provides by Binita Desai.

The set is designed by ace designer Omung Kumar, while the title song is composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and sung by Shankar Mahadevan and Sneha Pant.

Besides Amar Upadhyay (Kshitij), Sanjit Bedi (Aryan), Shraddha Nigam (Gayatri), and Shishir Sharma (Anish Oberoi ), the star cast includes Manini De (Avanti Oberoi), Iklaq Khan (Vimal Singhania), Mandeep Mrinalini Singhania), Saurabh Dubey (Om Prakash Singh), Vanita Mallik (Dadi), Malini Kapoor (Geetanjali), Nisha Lalwani (Nandini), Vishal Sabnani (Aansh), Ashita Dhawan (Anoushka), Prashant Bhatt (Nikhil), Tarana Raja (Simran), Ragesh Asthana (Aniket chacha), Vandana Sajnani (Vandana chachi), Kavita Rathod (Kavita bua).
