Life Ok's new Show : Tumhari Pakhi
Life Ok recently launched the promo of their latest upcoming show Tumhari Pakhi. The story revolves around Pakhi ( played by Shraddha Arya) who has been waiting for 18 years for her love to return.
Looking at the promo, images of Devdas' diya song 'Silsila Yeh Chahat Ka' come to mind. In the show, protagonist Pakhi seemingly is waiting for 18 years for her lover whom she is presumably married to as a child.
The love of her life is played by Iqbal Khan and Pakhi refuses to acknowledge anyone else's advice to move on with her life and continues to long for his love.
The show is apparently inspired from a novel written by Sarat Chandra, who has also written Parineeti and Devdas. Sanjay Bhansali's Saraswatichandra was also loosely based on a book by the same name. Of course, details were tweaked to meet audience expectations and TRPs. We'll have to wait to find out if the show's screenplay completely matches the book or now.
The show is being touted as Iqbal Khan's big comeback after a sabbatical.
We are looking forward to the show!
