Colors to replace ‘Bigg Boss’ with 'Belan Waali Bahu'

MUMBAI: As Bigg Boss comes to an end, Colors is replacing the slot with a new comic drama Belan Waali Bahu, which gives us a peek into human impulses and tendencies. Produced by Shoonya Square, the show is helmed by Dheeraj Sarna (co-producer, writer and lead actor) and Ved Raj and directed by Deven Bhojani.  

The comic capers of the Awasthi family will come to life on 15 January 2018 and will air every Monday to Friday at 10.30 pm. The show traces the lives of a mismatched couple and how an ordinary item like a belan (rolling pin) changes life as they know it. 

Colors programming head Manisha Sharma said, “One of the most important parts in every household is the belan so please don’t take it lightly or for granted. Often many men don’t use a belan but love to have rotis. Adding a little humour to this concept, Belan Waali Bahu narrates a story of Amarnath who takes his wife Roopa for granted. The belan is mightier than the sword as it can feed you or kill you but in our show, it kills and, believe me, the viewers will die laughing. We promise a first of its kind show that highlights the dynamics between a dead husband, wife and a belan.”

Television diva Krystle D’souza sports a never-seen-before look as she essays the role of the bahu, Roopa Awasthi, while writer and producer turned actor Dheeraj Sarna plays the role of the protagonist—the ghost of her late husband, Amarnath Awasthi. 

Sarna added, “Writing has always been my passion. When I started illustrating Amarnath’s character, it somewhat grew on me. Though we auditioned many actors, somehow, I realised nobody was able to envision the role as I had it in my mind. And as luck would have it, my team was also convinced that I should play the character myself.”

It is an infinite episodic show, shot at Filmcity. Sarna further added that they used three to four camera setups along with close to 200 crew members working for them.
