Television heartthrob Barun Sobti recently made headlines when reports of the actor making a comeback to the small screen after "Iss Pyaar ko Kya Naam Doon?" had surfaced. The reports said that the actor was roped in for a finite series titled "Satya Ki Kiran."
While Barun's fans were eagerly waiting to watch him on screen once again, according to Tellychakkar.com report, the show has undergone some major changes and is now tentatively titled "Mohra." Also, the show, which was initially planned to be a finite series of 26 episodes and was said to be aired on weekends, has been extended to around 128 episodes and will now run daily from Monday to Friday. Not just that, the report said that if the series manages to impress the viewers, it might get extended further.
"Mohra" will go on air June 27 onwards on Zee TV channel. It was reported that the thriller series would see Barun play the role of a cop named Satya, who in one of his important missions, would encounter a con girl named Kiran, played by Shivani Tomar. The duo would eventually fall in love. There were reports that Krishna Mukherjee of "Jhalli Angali" fame was being considered for the role. But the deal didn't materialise and the role went to Shivani.
In other news, Barun visited Istanbul a few months ago to promote his highly popular show "Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon?," which went off air in India in 2012. The actor was delighted that the show, which was titled "Bir Garip Ask" in Turkish, was being loved by the audience.
"I am delighted that the series is being aired in Turkey. I have been hearing that the show is being loved as much as the local Turkish dramas. It's quite amazing that the show has aired in more than 40 countries and has done extremely well everywhere," Barun said in a statement, Indo Asian News Service (IANS) reported.
