Raja feels Rani has been a pillar of strength through all his trials and tribulations. "In fact, the new promos that I have cut and which will be aired soon will have Rani giving bytes about the show. She has loved the episodes we have shot and that has boosted my confidence. It's a woman- centric serial and my second after Prratima. KKNNL is produced by my production company, JR Entertainers." Will she be giving creative inputs too? "No. It's difficult giving inputs every day as it's a daily soap."
The daily airs from May 5 on DD1 at 1 pm. Raja says, "It's about an industrialist's family which starts changing when the bahu of the house gets the property in her name. The cast includes Kashish Duggal, Komolika Guha Thakurta, Sanjeev Seth and Arup Pal."
Rajaa will direct his next Bengali film, Khokon, an action-romantic thriller. He says, "I will start in October. It has Dev from Tollywood and a new girl from Kolkata." Rajaa's earlier film was Bidhater Lekha.
