Color’s new show 'Rangrasiya' to go on air

The new show on Color, 'Rangrasiya' is all set to be aired soon. It will be on air from 30th December of this year onwards. The new soap is all set to replace the hugely popular ‘Bigg Boss, season 7’ reality show. It is a daunting task and will be interesting to see how the new fiction show fares in the TRP race. The reality show has acquired a cult status among its viewers and its anchor, the enigmatic Salman Khan is a crowd puller. It is a power horse in the TRP race and has immensely popularized the Color channel itself.

The new show 'Rangrasiya' is based on a love story that blossoms between a village lass and an officer from paramilitary forces. The paramilitary force in the serial is referred to as ‘Bharat Suraksha Dal’, undoubtedly inspired from the term ‘Border Security Forces’. The village girl in the serial is portrayed by the bubbly Sanaya Irani, while Ashish Sharma plays the role of the officer.

The trailer of the soap is already on air and is catching the viewer’s attention all around the nation. The promo showcases a brief incident of the ‘Bharat Suraksha Dal’ shooting and killing terrorists in the border state of Rajasthan. The tough officer is also seen chasing the village girl and stopping her at every juncture from crossing the border. The rough and tough attitude of the officer towards the girl raises the eyebrows as well as several questions. Is this truly a love story?

Speaking about the upcoming serial, Prashant Bhatt from Color channel stated that, "It`s a story on guns and roses. It (the promos) might look harsh and serious, but we are making sure it is appealing and can be watched by family. The violence shown in `Rangrasiya` is just 10 percent of what you see in films."

Saurabh Tewari and Abhinav Shukla from Nautanki Films have produced 'Rangrasiya' and they are confident about the good job done. A beaming Shukla said, "We have overspent from our side to give an edge in terms of quality and content. We shot 70 days in Jaisalmer. We have taken a chance by investing in the show. For first 10 episodes, we spent around Rs.5 crore." He farther added, "Right now we have one year contract with Colors. If everything goes well, we will produce more episodes."
