Remember the once popular TV series "Vikram Aur Betaal"? The character of Betaal will now be presented in a fresh way in ongoing periodic drama "Sinhasan Battisi".
The makers of the show, which airs on channel Pal, hope to tell inspiring tales imparting life lessons to kids by bringing the new character.
"We will be using that plot (of 'Vikram Aur Betaal'), but the screenplay and the characterisation will be different. They (makers of the past show) portrayed the roles in a different manner and we will try to show them in other circumstances," Dheeraj Kumar, producer of "Sinhasan Battisi", told IANS over phone from Mumbai.
There's a Vikram in the show too- King Vikramaditya- the lead character, who will be seen talking with Betaal, in order to fulfil a vow.
"We have taken the character of Betaal only as our story already has Vikram. It will be interesting to watch the change in the storyline," Dheeraj added.
Actors Arhaan Bhel and Abhaas Mehta are in talks for portraying the role of Betaal, but a formal announcement is yet to be made.
