With Ek Thhi Naayka, Sakshi hopes for another hit with Balaji
Small screen's favourite bahu Sakshi Tanwar will soon be seen in Ekta Kapoor's new promotional show Ek Thhi Naayka and hopes their success saga continues with the show.
Sakshi had teamed up with Ekta, boss of Balaji Telefilms, in successful TV show Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii. Currently the actress is doing Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, again produced by the same banner.
"Balaji and Ekta are more like a family now. It is a bond, which is hard to crack. There is a level of understanding and professionalism, which is deep set between Balaji and me," the 40-year-old told reporters Monday at the launch of the show.
"By god's grace, we have been able to give many success stories. I hope the same happens with Ek Thhi Naayka," added the actress.
Ek Thhi Naayka has been made as a promotional series to promote Ekta's film "Ek Thi Daayan". In the show, small screen's eight leading ladies will present eight different stories.
"I feel it is a unique and a beautiful concept to bring together leading ladies of television and make a show with them. Stories from different states will be presented and the different concepts of the film will be shown in the show. I have a feeling that it will work," Sakshi said.
When asked if she believes in the paranormal, Sakshi said: "I have only heard stories as a child and it is hard to say whether these things are true or not."
"...I have not come across any such thing in reality," she added.
Apart from Sakshi, the TV series will feature Smriti Irani, Aamna Shariff, Shweta Tiwari, Mouli Ganguly, Ankita Lokhande, Kritika Kamra and Pooja Gor.
The eight-part TV series will go air March 9 on Life OK.
