Promoting films on popular TV serials is not a new strategy and has been there for a few years now. Recently, it was Vidya Balan who had been reported to be at the shooting of ‘Uttaran’ to hype her upcoming movie ‘Kahaani’ and Kareena Kapoor was also spotted in the promotional spree.
Following suit we have Tusshar Kapoor, the brother of the Queen of Soaps ‘Ekta Kapoor’, who would be making an appearance in ‘Pavitra Rishta’. The serial has been going strong with its rising TRPs and perhaps the Balaji think tank thought it to be a wise move to promote Tusshar’s upcoming ‘Chaar Din Ki Chandni’.
Well, we hope he can reap the benefits since the movie has not been able to generate enough hype yet apart from the remade song ‘Chandni O Meri Chandni’ from the Rishi Kapoor and Sridevi starrer ‘Chandni’ of the 80s.
Watch Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna on Star Plus starting October 3
With some some commercials of the drama seen on Star Plus, it seems they really want the viewers to watch Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hain come this October. The show is about two sisters that are very close to each other. They live with their parents and take care of each other very much. The older sister is usually the one that is taking care of the smaller sister after she has gotten herself in trouble. In Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hain, the sister and their parents live in Delhi. Watch the show as it is set to air on October 3 at 8:30pm IST.
It seems TV serial titles are getting flooded with Bollywood movie names and song lines. Bade Achche Lage Hain, Kuch Toh Log Kahenge; on Sony TV are good examples of this.
Playtime somehow, it seems, is not settled with this idea and are dwindling between names for their serial initially titled as Sangarsh. Its name was changed to Ruk Jaan Nahi Tu Kahi Haar Ke. But eventually it seems this name also could not satisfy the production team’s top brass. They are still scratching their heads and aggressively searching for a best suitable title for this serial.
Reportedly they are thinking about experimenting this time with a non Bollywood inspired title which is Sone Ke Pinjare Mein Phansi Muniya. The reason of earlier titles getting rejected was that the title was not matching with the theme of the serial. That is shy first two titles got rejected.
Producer Hemal Thakkar seems to be in doldrums.
