Amrita Rao's sister Preetika Rao to play lead in Fortune Productions' next for Colors
Acclaimed Writer Farhan Salaruddin debuted as Producer with the crisp and unique show Beend Banoonga Ghodi Chadunga on Imagine TV. The producer will now return to the limelight with yet another interesting concept, for Colors, under his banner Fortune Productions.
The show will be a Muslim social drama. Farhan’s show along with Saurabh Tewari’s (Nautanki Telefilms) Rang Rasiya, featuring Ashish Sharma and Sanaya Irani as leads, will fill the time slot when Bigg Boss season 7 ends.
Coming back to Farhan’s show, we hear that Bollywood actress Amrita Rao’s younger sister Preetika Rao will play the lead. Preetika who has been an important find for Colors will apparently feature in Anil Kapoor’s thriller 24 in due course of time.
A source tells us that her work in 24 caught the eyes of the channel and the pretty looking actress suited well into the character of a Muslim girl for the new show on Colors.
We also hear that new face Harshad will play the male lead in this social drama.
When contacted, Producer Farhan S refused to comment.
We sent out a text message to Prashant Bhatt, Fiction Head, Colors but did not get any revert.

The news about Sanaya Irani bagging the lead role in Saurabh Tiwari's next production spread like fire few days back in the telly world. The show is slated to air on Colors channel, where the production house’s (Nautanki Telefilms) popular show Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon is already stealing the thunder.
Now, latest is gathered that the show has been titled Rang Rasiya, which will depict a love story of a girl who madly loves a boy, but that boy denies the relationship. According to the sources, “The show is named as Rang Rasiya and will be visually very appealing. It is supposed to get the prime time slot and may go on air sometime in December after Bigg Boss Saath 7 gets over.”
The title seems to be inspired by Ketan Mehta's film based on the legendary painter Raja Ravi Verma. Going by the title the show does promise to bring additional color and add multicolored hues to the storyline of a couple. For the lead role, Sanaya Irani has been approached for the show, but nothing has been confirmed as yet. Sanaya went on a long holiday with family to the US after her last show Chhanchhan went off air.
While talking about the male lead character, Sanaya’s real life boyfriend Mohit Sehgal has been approached for the lead role. Mohit earlier played opposite Sanaya in Miley Jab Hum Tum that aired on Star One.
What you say, are you excited on seeing the real life couple back together on screen?
