Star Plus readies 'Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand' for a makeover

MUMBAI: Something is definitely brewing on the sets of Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand. When quizzed, both the channel and the producers have a common refrain - "It is something that you have never seen on Indian television before."

Maybe the slipping TRPs or the prosaic story line resulted in the call for an overhaul, but it is rather interesting to speculate on what the makers will come up with, especially since they have already exhausted every possible twist and turn in the book.

'Never seen before' tag almost cancels out the routine amnesia, amazing plastic surgeons, premature greying or lack of it. But industry mills are abuzz with couple of possibilities...

Story No. One: Star Plus does what it does the best; put the story into the time machine and whoosh!, the romantic lead Dev and Pammi are now parents of an 18-year-old charming daughter, who accidentally happens to be an exact replica of her mother. Looking at the suggested story flow, Sweta Keswani, who plays the vamp Anu and Amar Upadhayay Dev /Raj are likely to opt out.

Both Keswani and Upadhyaya have previously denounced the 'mature' roles (during their last stint), so that pretty much rules out them. Rumour has it that even the main protagonists Sangeeta Ghosh, who plays Pammi and Varun Badola, who plays Dev/Rohit would be bumped off eventually.

So far so good, but when contacted Upadhayay vehemently denied that he is averse to playing an older guy. Ghosh, however, remained tightlipped and yet a little morose about the entire proceeding, which brings us to our Story Number Two.

Radical changes are in store for DMNHC, say industry sources. Apparently, the channel might just bid the entire cast good-bye. So there should be a slew of fresh faces and a fresh story in the pipeline. While channel sources remain tight-lipped, production house sources say they don't want to reveal anything till they get a green signal from the channel.

As of what we know, the next episode will show Dev and Pammi (Upadhyay and Ghosh) unite again. And to put an end to the twisted story line, will come back to India - away from the evil and the prying eyes and away from their family and loved ones.

But the channel sources hint that just as things seem to be coming to a 'happily ever after' conclusion, in will come the 'big change'.

Although it seems like the Story Number Two is the lead contender, two days of brainstorming does not seem to have made any clearer what drama is in store for the 'unsuspecting' viewer...
