Durgesh Nandini to replace Bigg Boss

A soap based on a Bengali literature classic will replace the reality show ‘Bigg Boss’

Sony will replace their big ticket reality show ‘Bigg Boss’ with a soap inspired by a classic piece of Bengali literature, Durgesh Nandini. The show, to be produced by Shobhana Desai, will launch either on January 29 or February 20, 2007.

Sony has been toying with the idea of a soap inspired by Durgesh Nandini for over a year now. Now that the channel needs to consolidate its position after gaining eyeballs with ‘Bigg Boss’, it seems an ideal time to introduce a period classic.

The story is about a village girl, who is named heir to a large estate, when her businessman father passes away. She has to shift to the city not just to manage the fortune but also to deal with a family who are alien as well as hostile to her, as she has turned up out of the blue and is the custodian to the entire business empire.

The cast is yet to be finalised, but indications are that Tassnim Sheikh, Anupam Bhattacharya and Shubhaavi will find their way into the serial. The hunt is still on for the lead actor. With ‘Durgesh..’, producer Shobhana Desai will now have two consecutive shows on Sony’s primetime – ‘Thodi Khushi Thode Gham’ at 9.30 pm, and the new show will air at 10 pm. Sony prefers to keep mum on this development.

  2. This week Ravi is playing emotional with people to
    gain their sympathy. He is nominated this week
    and must get out of Big Boss house.

    Rakhi spoke the truth for Ravi.

    Kashmira Shah is just entertaining people.
    She is the RISE OF EVIL in Bis Boss house.
    In the end she would create world war 3 in the
    house and leave home simply.

    She will be throwing all missille on Rakhi to break everyone’s trust.
    The reason is that Rakhi was the best of all and was going well thats why Kash is jealous and has planned well for the whole week. She is root of all evil.

  4. Ravi is one of the biggest liar in this show. He has 2 faces. In the beginning he made group of friends and with the help of those friend’s he threw several people out of the house. This week when Kashmira entered the house he got scared like someone has thrashed him in the garbage by revealing his reality. Kash has seen everyone’s reality and know’s whom to fire and at what time. Ravi knows this time that member’s of the house would know his reality and start hating him. This is why Ravi has starting emotionally black mailing member’s of the house and people out of the house to save himself and win 50 lakhs.

    This whole week Ravi will be crying to gain sympathy from everyone. This week Ravi must be thrown out of the house and the hours of this programm must get extended from one hour to 2 hour.

    Rahul Roy or Rakhi must win this show.

  5. Rahul Roy is the most descent guy in Big Boss house. He is unique and man with patience. When Deepak Tijori and all the member’s of the house spoke
    ill about him he did not create any scene or fuss but smartly handled the situation.

    He never shed crocodile’s tears like Ravi is doing now a days. He spoke the truth. He is the most dignified man in Big Boss house, who deserves 50 lakhs.

    Rakhi is very frank and entertaining.
