The show goes behind the scenes of both the stage production and movie capturing extensive clips and unseen footage.

Going places

The little girl Sparsh Khanchandani, who plays Ichcha in Uttaran, will soon be seen in J D Majethia's thriller show, Shree. As the story goes, the show takes a six year leap and they show Shree (Wasna Ahmed) and Hari (Pankaj Tiwari) blessed with twins — a son and a daughter. The daughter Naveli is being played by Sparsh and everyone pampers her silly.

Says Majethia says, "We are very pleased to have Sparsh on board. This little one is a natural! She is really good at her work and gets along fine with everyone on the sets. With her child-like demeanour, the whole atmosphere on the sets has become very vibrant." Way to go, girl.
