Shakuntalam's upcoming show tentatively titled Amar Prem for Star Plus has got a male lead. Gaurav S Bajaj who was supposed to do Balaji Telefilms's Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani has been cast opposite Parvati Vaze.
A source says, "Gaurav has been signed on to play a lead in the show, his character is of a lover boy and is very strong. Known Marathi actress, Mangal Kenkre, last seen in Godh Bharai will play the role of his mother. Swapna Joshi is directing the show. It is purely a love story set in Delhi. We have finished our first outdoor shoot with few cast members. However, the channel is yet to give us a time slot and proper launch date.”
Gaurav says, "I cannot disclose anything at this moment."
Sources say Gaurav has shot a few sequences with the cast. If everything goes well then the show may go on air by early December, and so it won’t replace Bidaai which is ending on November 13.
