Unconventional love story

Madhubala Ek Ishq, Ek Junoon was launched at a multiplex recently where Ramesh Sippy shared an insight on the disappearing line between films and television.

A love story set against the backdrop of the film industry, Madhubala... will provide a glimpse into the lives of the stars while showcasing the challenges and struggles of the people facing the arc lights. It stars Raj Zutshi, Drashti Dhami and Vivian Dsena.

From being a nobody to somebody, Madhubala, played by Drishti Dhami, sees a lot of ups and downs in her life that make her join the film industry.

Prashaant Bhatt, Weekday Programming Head of Colors, said, “It is the first-of-its-kind show on Indian television that presents an unconventional love story while revealing the different aspects that make the glitz and glam side of the film industry.

That this idea coincides with the 100th year of the film industry creates a deja vu feeling in our hearts making us believe that the time is right for our viewers to witness the magic of the silver screen on their television sets.”

Producer Saurabh Tewari of Nautanki Films said, “With the current television offerings focusing on slice-of-life shows, Madhubala... comes in as an unexplored concept — a first on Indian television.”
