Samir Soni aka ‘Kunal Chopra’ of ‘Parichay’ fame is all set to mark his re-entry on TV screen with a new show. This time the show isn’t any drama or daily soap, but a genre, quite different to his league.

‘Khauff’ is a supernatural thriller, which will have Samir Soni in the lead, as a paranormal researcher. The actor did confirm his presence in the show and spoke about his character. The actor was quoted saying that his character will display a mysterious shade, which will be quite an interesting one to play. He said his character will be quite dark and cynical, someone who doesn’t have much faith in supernatural activities and therefore will go on investigating about them.

The bi-weekly saga has been reportedly said to have 12 episodes, which will showcase a new story in each one. The show is made by the makers of ‘Fear Files-Darr ki sachchi tasveerein’, who have said that the show will go on air in Oct-Nov, 2013.

Samir Soni will be joined by Abigail Jain and Megha Gupta in the leads. The actress Megha Gupta will play the role of Samir’s wife on screen, while Abigail will be on the investigative team. The show, which will deal with paranormal activities and investigative journalism is also said to have roped in actor Manoj Verma, for a pivotal role in the show.

Manoj will play the role of ‘Jaffer’, which is said to have been inspired from one of Hollywood’s famous roles, done by Johny Depp. He will working for an investigative agency, who deal with solving paranormal cases, but in a scientific way. The actor was heard saying that his role was more of a ‘Sufiana avatar’.

No idea about what the actor meant,  but the actor’s association with big shows like ‘Swabhimaan’ and ‘Crime Patrol’ definitely make him look choosy about his roles, which is quite promising! Even Megha Gupta, who was last seen in paranormal shows like ‘Aahat’ and ‘Fear Files’ does look fitting for such a show.

Anyway, people are excited to just catch a glimpse of their favorite actor ‘Samir Soni’ another time, in a power packed role on screen.

Let’s just hope with ‘Khauff’, Samir Soni gets a thumbs up and we, as audience get to see something genuine and substantial on paranormal, rather than watching another futile attempt of the Indian version of ‘X-Files’ on Life OK.

Samir Soni returns with Somersault's next on Life OK

[To set reminder and check TV schedule new show Somersault click here..]

Good news for Samir Soni’s fans-he is soon coming back on small screen! Samir who was last seen playing a powerful character of Kunal Chopra in Ekta Kapoor’s show Parichay aired on Colors TV is now set for a new avatar. He has been roped in to play the male lead in Somersault’s upcoming venture on Life OK.

Samir Soni’s fans were deeply saddened by sudden ending of their favorite show Parichay. They even demanded a season 2 by showing their anger on various social media sites but no one paid heed to them. But now the wait is over and they can rejoice with the come back of their favorite TV hero.

Samir will be seen in a bi-weekly thriller saga from the makers of Fear Files season 1 and 2 to be aired on Life OK. The show will have 12 episodes and each episode will have a new story to unveil. This show is based on paranormal activities and his character will have mysterious shades to it. So, it will be a new Samir Soni for his fans who will see him in an entirely different genre than Parichay.

When contacted, Samir confirmed the news and said, “Yes, I am doing the show and I am playing a very interesting role. I have always taken up shows that are character driven and in this show my character is cynical, a dark character who doesn’t believe in paranormal things and tries to investigate it. I am looking forward to the role and hope even people like it.”

The only sad part forParichay fans is that Samir will not be seen with his Parichay co star Keerti Nagpure who played Siddhi Chopra. Our little birdie has informed that Abigail Jain of Hum Se Hai Life fame has been finalized to play the female lead.

Though Parichay couple will not be seen together we hope that in coming future Keerti gets a role opposite Samir so that Parichay fans can see their awesome chemistry again. Meanwhile fans will only get to see Samir.

Parichay was pulled off due to low TRPS and no exciting story line. Parichay-nayee zindagi kay sapno ka- a Balaji Telefilms production started off in the year 2011 on Colors. The show was due to complete 2 years in July if not stopped abruptly. It was ended in March to give on air time to a new show ‘Bani-ishq da kalma.’

The producers and channel felt that there was nothing new left to show the audience while on the other hand ardent fans of the show believed that a season 2 with rich and successful Kunal Chopra would have given a fresh twist in the tale while keeping the same star cast.

Jo hota hai acche ke liye hota hai…guess fans will love him in his new role! i-Dubba wishes Samir good luck and courage to fight with ghosts and spirits!!

Parichay fans can keep praying for season 2 which for sometime looks difficult but we keep our fingers crossed too! Share your Views, Reviews, Comments and Suggestions on Twitter-iDubba and  iDubba app

Parichay—Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka: End of a story, beginning of a rage!

“The main reason, apart from its dipping ratings, is the fact that there is nothing left in the story to be explored. The show seems to have reached a dead end”.… This reason was cited when it was decided to pull the plug for Colors TV show Parichay – Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka.

Exactly one month back, last episode of this show was aired. Curtains for the show raked anger among the ardent followers. They pleaded the channel and production house to think otherwise or at least give them some respite by announcing season 2 for the show but their voice fell on deaf ears.

The followers of the show were not disheartened and are still running organized campaigns on varied social networking sites demanding for season 2 of the show. The situation in hand has raised a lot of questions on the integrity of TRP system.

If indeed the TRP of the show was low, than these so called reasons stated by production house and channel should have been acceptable to the viewers. Instead of demanding season 2, they would have happily bid adieu to the show. One would have not come across such mass appeals. Guess it’s time for channels to relook at the whole TRP concept.

Even the cast of the show could not believe it was time to throw in the towel. The male protagonist of the show Kunal Chopra aka Samir Soni believes there is still lot of scope in the story and is willing to produce season 2 of the show if the channel permits him to do so. Interestingly, the channel and production house are tight lipped on this as well.

We genuinely hope the channel takes a serious note of the situation in hand and offers a reason to rejoice by announcing season 2. After all, Television shows are for audiences and they should have a right to decide if it’s time for pack up. Share your Views, Reviews, Comments and Suggestions on Twitter-iDubba and set reminders for your favorite shows on iDubba app..

Samir Soni: I think change in time-slot could have affected Parichay's TRP

[To set reminder and check TV schedule of new show Gurbani click here..]

Finally Parichay had bid adieu to its fans yesterday, after the show ended Samir Soni on what went wrong with the show.. Also he has expressed his interest in producing a sequel of ‘Parichay‘.

He thinks when the show shifted from 9.30 pm to the 10.30 pm time-slot, it could have affected the show’s TRPs, because we already had a loyal audience watching it at 9.30 pm; a kind of habit was formed. We lost that audience, resulting in a fall in the ratings. Further he says, there were 4 to 5 repeats during the day, and people who had stopped watching the show when it shifted to the new slot, started watching the repeats. These factors have badly affected Parichay. With over 400 episodes, the show would have completed 2 years in July. It still has a great potential that remains unused. The Constant struggle of Kunal Chopra we’ve shown, but we haven’t touched upon or explored his life as a successful man.
