Model-turned-actor Anuj Sachdeva has been confirmed to play the lead in Zee TV’s upcoming prime time show, Phir Subah Hogi, putting to rest all speculations about the male lead actor of the show. Apparently, also in the race for this role were popular actors like Mishal Raheja and Neil Bhatt. Anuj will play the role of Aditya Babu, a well-educated Thakur. Confirming this development, an excited Anuj says, “I have a very challenging role in the show as I have to portray someone who neither conforms to nor does he opposes traditional rituals.
He is modern in his approach, but still believes in the old school concept of love, is arrogant and yet humane when compared with other members of his clan.
The irony of Aditya’s life will lie in the fact that eventually he will fall in love with Sugni, a girl who represents the world of Bednis, that he refuses to sympathise with.
My character is filled with layers of contrast and it will definitely put all my acting skills to test.” About the show, a source says that it is based in Bundelkhand, which is also well-known for the Bedia tribe known for their folk dance ‘Raai’ and the prevalent custom of ‘Sar Dhakai’ in the name of tradition. “The show that will start on April 17 will trace the journey of Sugni, a bedni by birth who wants to break free from this social evil and lead a dignified life,” adds the source.
