We had earlier reported about film-maker Mahesh Bhatt's upcoming show, Naamkaran, which will replace the popular show, Diya Aur Baati Hum, in the 9 pm slot. We had even shared the glimpses of the show's first promo.
As per the reports, the show is based on Mahesh Bhatt's 1998 Bollywood film, Zakhm. While some sources are saying that, the show is loosely inspired from Mahesh Bhatt's own life.
Well, if you guys are wondering, what the show is all about, we bring you some interesting aspects regarding the show. Read on to know more about the show.
Naamkaran, will focus on the young girl, Avni (essayed by child artist Arsheen Naamdar), who lives with her single mother Asha (Barkha Bisht). In the first promo, we came across Avni's inquisitive nature upon hearing the word, 'kanyadaan' at a wedding.
Apparently, the storyline of the show would be dealt from Avni's perspective. Asha, Avni's mother would have faced a lot of troubles in her life and her young daughter, will be a pillar of strength to her.
As per the reports, Avni will be an illegitimate child. Actor Viraf Patel, will play the role of Avni's father on the show.
When quizzed Mahesh Bhatt regarding the show, he told, "Naamkaran is the story of a young girl who lives with a single parent and begins a quest to define herself in this world with its prevalent, hypocritical, tumbling moral structure and she finds herself locking horns with them, adjusting to them, and finally emerging."
Mahesh Bhatt, was all praises for the 8-year-old Arsheen and even called her 'brilliant'. Popular singer Arijit Singh has been roped in to sing the title track of the show.
Naamkaran will air its first episode on September 12, 2016. Keep reading the space for more updates.
