Writer of Iqbal Khan and Mona Singh ill fated show Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do Nivedita Basu met the media at the practice session of her cricket entertainment show BCL which will start on Colors tomorrow late afternoon. “The Sunday 4 pm slot is odd, would house wives watch tv at that time? But I guess a lot depends on the drama which Ekta’s creative team will conjour up.”
Coming to her squad team Kolkatta Babu Moshai, this team owner says, “ideally I would have preferred more players then faces. The biggest challenge is to get my main players (Sharad Malhotra, Hiten Tejwani, Krip Suri, Vindhya Tiwari and Ankita Lokhande etc) together for practice and matches, for most of them are daily soap leads. Those who are not acting at the moment, and are gung-ho about the game do feel let down. But we cant help it as this is a team sport.”
In closing we ask Nivedita as about what went wrong with the above Sony show which shut down even before it’s six months run elapsed. I guess it would have worked had it been on other channel as it’s powerful star cast might have attracted more viewer affording us time to further fine tune the story. Also I believe had they launched the show as limited series on the digital platform it might have just gone through. Beyond this I don’t want to hazard a guess on what might have worked or not.” says this ex Balaji Telefilms creative head.
Besides BCL Nivedita has turned producer with &TV show Meri Awaaz Hi Pehchaan Hai.
