Swastik Productions to narrate the tale of a kid and an elephant through 'Bandhan' on Life OK
Siddharth Tewary’s Swastik Productions will soon come up with an untapped subject on television, that of the bonding between a little kid and an elephant. Wow, don’t you think this subject will create wonders on the small screen? Well, if you really feel so, then watch out for this unique fiction show titled Bandhan on Life OK.
As per our inside source, the pilot for the show was shot in September last year (2012) and the makers have in fact done a lot of research on the above-said subject. The show in addition to depicting a strong bonding between the animal and the kid will also break the shackles on various myths that man has towards an elephant.
So who plays the little kid who befriends an elephant? Our source tells us that Swastik Productions has yet again roped in the little prodigy Jannat Zubair Rahmani (who earlier played Phulwa in their Colors show) for the central role. The makers have zeroed in on two elephants and have got them trained for the project. One is a mother elephant while the other is her baby elephant. The unit shot for nearly seven days with the elephant and Jannat for the pilot.
The pilot has been approved by Life OK, and work on the show has already begun. Casting for other principal characters is presently on.
We tried contacting producer Siddharth Tewary and sent him a test message, but did not get any reply from him.
When contacted, Jannat’s dad confirmed the news and said, “Yes, Jannat is a part of Bandhan. It is a very nice subject, and that is all I can say at the moment.”
This indeed is a show to watch out for!!!
