Bani takes a thrill pill

Ekta Kapoor is planning to revive Balaji’s old show Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat. And the lead will be played by, no prizes for guessing, Prachi Desai. Aired two years ago, weekend thriller Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat was a series that dealt with subjects like murder, lies and betrayal, where relationships were not what they seemed to be. The new Kya Hadsaa… will continue to be a horror show, based on the supernatural. However, this time, it comes with a fresh plot.

Prachi is more than excited about the chance of doing a new show. Says Prachi, “I will play a positive character, and for a change I will play my age, and not a typical bahu. I will begin shooting from next week. I hope I will be able to do justice to my new role. I used to watch Kya Hadsaa… earlier and I do believe in supernatural powers. We will be shooting in and around Mumbai.”

So how has she sketched her schedule, now that she has to devote time for two shows?

Prachi says, “Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat will be aired three days a week, whereas Kasamh Se is a daily. So Kya Hadsaa… will require lesser time to shoot compared to Kasamh Se. I don’t think there will be a problem.”

Prachi will be given a completely new get-up in the show. Now she will be seen wearing skirts and kurtis. Says Suraj Rao, the creative head of the show, “Unlike last time, which dealt with one story in one episode, the revived Kya Hadsaa… will run one story for more than twelve episodes. We have chosen Prachi to play the lead while the rest of the characters are being finalised. She plays a girl who gets into a bad marriage due to some flaw in her horoscope and then the thriller angle seeps into the plot.”

Kya Hadsaa Kya Haqeeqat will be a half-an-hour show and will go on air in August.
