Deol Versus Deol

‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’, one of Indian television’s most successful serials, will be now made into a movie, bringing the real life father- son, Shekhar and Adhyayan Suman together for the first time ever. Like the serial, the movie too will be directed by Anand Mahendroo.

Although the trend of converting serials into movies has been prevalent in the West with serials such as ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Sex and The City’ being converted into motion pictures, ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’ will be the first Indian serial to be made into a movie. The story for the film will continue from the point it left off in the serial, along with the entire cast from the sitcom. The new addition in this will be Adhyayan, who will be playing the grown up son of Shekhar Suman.

Speaking to Bollywood Hungama, Anand Mahendroo said, “The movie will be a teen-romance, with Adhyayan playing an army officer. For this role, we required him to be very lean and fit. That’s why I asked him to lose weight. Adhyayan has lost about 7 kilos, but I think he needs to lose some more. With this in mind, he’s got an intense workout schedule which includes power yoga and cardio and dance.”

Anand, when asked, why he chose Adhyayan for the role, he avers, “I have seen Adhyayan’s work and have even watched his upcoming film Jashn. He is someone who fitted the role perfectly. The only issue was his weight, which also has been taken care of now.”

On the other hand, speaking about the heroine opposite Adhyayan, he said, “As for the leading lady, we haven’t yet finalized still. In fact, we will be launching a talent hunt for the same and the winner will be chosen as the lead actress of the film. The talent hunt show is scheduled to be aired by the 15th of May. The film will then hit the floors somewhere around the 15th of July.”
