According to the latest development, the makers have roped in Ronit Bose Roy to play the male lead in the daily soap.
Informed a source associated with the show, “Ronit has signed on the dotted line and will shoot a promo with us in a couple of days. The shoot will take place in Chandigarh, as the story is set in the city. The show revolves around a couple, who have sacrificed a lot in life for their children, but they are abandoned by them when they are in need.”
The principal cast will shoot a promo for the show in a couple of days in Chandigarh, where the story is set.
Had things fallen into place, Swaran Ghar would have marked jimmy’s debut on Hindi TV. Talking about why he is not a part of it, Jimmy shares, “As I had mentioned earlier, it was too premature to comment on it. Sargun and Ravi, who are very close to me, narrated an idea to me, and I quite liked it. The project required me to make a special appearance of about 15-20 days. We thought we could work it out. However, with the third wave striking us and leading to a lot of restrictions, my dates had to be shuffled. It was very difficult to squeeze in this show among my other commitments. The dates couldn’t be worked out.”
Swaran Ghar will also feature veteran Punjabi actress Nirmal Rishi, who will play Sangita’s mother-in-law. The show will mark the latter’s return to TV after two years. She was last seen as the antagonist in the supernatural thriller Divya Drishti.
