Zee Cafes first local soap looks to get 'Bombay Talking'

MUMBAI: In Mumbai you have to be happening today to make it big! And to make it big you have to get Bombay Talking about you!

As part of its ongoing localisation drive, English general entertainment channel Zee Café will launch a soap Bombay Talking from 19 November 2005. The soap will air every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 pm.

The show, which is being produced by UTV, marks the first English language soap on Indian television since A Mouthful Of Sky, which aired on DD in the late 1990s.

As had been reported earlier by Zee Café has already launched two Indian shows. One is After Hours where host Nina Manuel brings the latest in the Mumbai social circuit. The other show Simply Style sees presenter Bandana Tiwari juggling roles of fashion commentator, fashion fraternity insider and fashion guide.

Bombay Talking, meanwhile, chronicles the story of Sheena played by newcomer Priyanka Bassi. The show follows her journey as she gets involved with the glamorous and often unreal world of the rich and famous set. She tries to find herself in the myriad world of tinsel town and encounters people like Sandhya Khanna. Khanna is a former star turned film moghul, who runs a successful production house. She will leave no stone unturned to push the career of her daughter Reema Khanna. Reemas launch vehicle will be the Rs 1 billion project Laila. If the project does not work then the production house will collapse and will signal the end of the Khanna reign over Bollywood.

The soap revolves around three elements. First there are the women who have been brought together by fate. Then there are the men who love them, leave them, put hurdles in their path. Then there is the stage, which is Mumbai the mecca of Indian filmmaking where dreams are made and buried in a relatively short span of time. It has been directed by Anand Rai.
