Star Plus' 'DMNHC' adopts a new twist in tale

MUMBAI: So it is the No 2 option that Star Plus has opted for... After the tragic death of the original protagonists- Pammi and Dev, Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand will take a leap into future.

Hitherto unheard move, the show will now spout new faces. The new season, as the channel calls it, will be the story of Heer aka Gungun- Pammi and Dev's child.

Marking the television debut of Neha Mehta, the 7 June episode, has another surprise in offing. It will mark the comeback of actor-turned-producer Neena Gupta to the small screen after a sabbatical of four years.

Amongst the older faces retained on the show, will be Aroona Irani as the grandmother of Heer and Vir as her great grandfather 'Bauji'.

"We wanted to adopt some novel change before the media decides that it has had enough with the old track," Star Plus Sr VP Deepak Segal jocularly offered about the reason for change. He insisted that it had nothing to do with the fickle TRP issue or that the people were tired of the same old faces. "They are still quite popular," he added.

The longest running love story, as Star Plus claims it to be will showcase protagonist Heer's life as she grows up with her step aunt Tina played by popular teleactor Karishma Tanna. Both the girls grow up together, very close to each other.

Heer is overprotected by Bauji, who tries to keep her away from falling in love as he believes it is love that destroyed his beloved Pammi and he would not want Heer to go through the same tragedy again. On Bauji's instance, Heer is to get married to young handsome Yash Diwan played by Rohit Roy. But as luck would have it, Heer falls head over heels in love with Jai played by another newcomer Manav.

As for Gupta, the channel claims that she has an author backed role in the show. She will be playing Heer's would be mother-in-law.

Mehta, who play the protagonist, although a novice to the small screen has done several Telugu movies. She has also be signed by Ram Gopal Verma for his forthcoming movie D. Whilst Manav, is a Haryanvi lad who has a background in Punjabi movies.

Although the channel does not have an elaborate plan to promote the new "season", Segal offered that they would be using the channel extensively for the promotions. Several teasers are currently on air.
