The more the delay, the less chance of it succeeding. We"re using this line for the second time in a matter of two weeks. First it was used for Swastik Pictures 'Mahabharat" and their proposed show on Colors, and now it"s Ekta Kapoor"s turn to sweat on the future of her show for Star One. Unfortunately, the word emanating from the gossip mills isn"t in favour of 'Fanaa".
If sources are to be believed, Ekta"s desi Twilight might not get to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
“The casting of 'Fanaa" is still to be done. The show that was earlier supposed to launch during the second week of June, has been indefinitely delayed. Things are not moving as expected. Star One itself has been struggling. There is even some talk that the project might simply not take off," said a source.
Interestingly, 'Fanaa" was the first among three new shows that Balaji Telefilms conceptualized this year. 'Sarvagunn Sampann" and 'Tere Liye" have already been launched, while 'Fanaa" is still conducting its auditions.
Ekta Kapoor remained unavailable for comment.
Well, it could be premature to write off 'Fanaa". Ekta is known to take the rabbit out of the hat. Things could get going again. The viewers certainly will want to see this desi version of Twilight.
