    Drawn by the creative freedom a producer has in the making of a serial, Rajan Shahi, director of successful shows "Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahi", "Saat Phere" and "Mamta" has stepped into the producer's shoes. His production "Sapna Babul Ka… Bidaai" started off with its very first episode being shot lavishly at The Taj Mahal, Agra. Rajan insists the script demanded the location. However, more than the production value the show concentrates on a good storyline and characters that the audiences would be able to relate with.

    Elaborating on his previous role of a director, he says: "Even then, I was involved in every aspect of the shooting. However, being a producer gives you that extra creative freedom to execute whatever you want to without any hassles." Rajan is also the series director for "Bidai" which went on air from October 8 at 9 pm on Star Plus. The show stars talented actors like Alok Nath, Vibha Chibber, Parul Chauhan, Sara Khan, Ashita Dhawan and Mahesh Thakur.

    That television soaps often copy from their big screen counterparts is a known fact. "Bidai" doesn't seem any different. Earlier, it was speculated that the concept of the show was inspired by Rajshree's production "Vivaah". "Yeah, you can say that our story has been inspired by "Vivaah". But our story would take a new turn in every episode," confirms Rajan.

    Now, what is left to be seen is whether the TRPs head towards the top or nosedive on the popularity charts.
