Zee TV launches its first fiction show of 2017

MUMBAI: Zee TV’s first fiction offering of 2017 - ‘Woh … Apna Sa’ is a unique concept that questions prevalent mindsets, pre-conceived notions and the over-generalizations that surround the institution of marriage, love and the eternal quest of finding one’s true soulmate. The show takes a look at how some relations don’t go the way you expect them to while a few others, ones that you probably don’t expect, go on to make a huge positive difference in our lives. Produced by Siddharth Malhotra’s Alchemy Films, ‘Woh … Apna Sa’ asks “Who really is your true soulmate?”.

The show has a promising cast. While the talented Sudip Sahir has been roped in to play the male protagonist Aditya Jindal, a family man willing to sacrifice everything to keep his family happy. The gorgeous Ridhi Dogra will play his wife Nisha, an extremely materialistic woman who believes that money is supreme and can buy love as well. The popular Disha Parmar will play the role of Jhanvi, a young woman whose simplicity, upbringing & values form the backbone of her mature personality. Jhanvi has an extremely positive outlook in life and believes that every problem comes with its own unique solution. Seasoned actor Amit Behl will essay the character of Dharmesh Jindal, Aditya’s Chachaji. Dharmesh’s family is his first priority and he believes in maintaining a perfect balance between professional and personal life.  The show is written by Raghuveer Shekhawat. With an impressive ensemble cast presenting a concept ahead of its times, this show is bound to create waves on the tube!

The show is produced by Siddharth Malhotra under his banner, Alchemy Films Private limited. The company aims to create content for various networks and online portals, eventually also branching into Theatre and Feature Films. Siddharth was so far associated with his family company Cinevistaas. Siddharth, who recently branched off as a producer has been creatively associated with shows like Dil Mill Gaye, Ek Haseena Thi, Sanjeevani and many others.

Zee TV deputy business head Deepak Rajadhyaksha said, “Just as we are completing our audition phase of our upcoming reality series, Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil Champs, we are delighted to announce Woh…Apna Sa as the first fiction offering of 2017. This engaging and compelling story is produced by Siddharth Malhotra. It’s a mature and sensitive concept around three well etched out characters that has been enacted by an impressive ensemble cast. With its unique storyline, the show will surely entertain the audience.”

Malhotra said, "This will be my first venture in partnership with Zee TV and the experience has been great so far. We’ve always wanted to present audiences with unique concepts that get people to pause and introspect and Woh…Apna Sa, with its differentiated subject and treatment, will certainly be a conversation starter. We are speaking of the power of a soulmate and the difference finding one can bring to your life. When some vital relationships fail and don’t go as per plan, one sometimes finds a glimmer of hope in a person other than your spouse. It does not have to mean an extra-marital affair, that soulmate could be anyone who gives you solace from the chaos of your life, reinstates your faith in love and companionship. It’s a mature subject that we plan to address sensitively. Woh…Apna Sa is a novel concept on television. We look forward to entertaining audiences with this endearing and compelling story”. ‘Woh... Apna Sa’ will premiere on 23 January at 10pm, and air every Monday to Friday.
