New boy on TV
No more confusion, please! The suspense is finally over. Sanaya Irani’s hero in her new serial Chhan Chhan is model Farhan Khan. The boy is all set to make his TV debut with this serial.
While the social networking sites were abuzz with speculations as to who’s going to be Sanaya Irani’s hero, let us reveal the man chosen to star opposite her in Chhan Chhan. We confirm that he’s Farhan Khan. The young lad was present at the launch of the serial along with the other cast members. He even posed for the photogs standing next to Sanaya.
Earlier, it was said that Sanaya’s real-life beau Mohit Sehgal is being considered for the role. Actors like Vishal Karwal, Arjun Bijlani, Varun Kapoor were also rumored to be under consideration to play Sanaya’s hero. But the scales tipped in Farhan’s favour as he is a fresh face.
While talking to a daily, producer Vipul D Shah said, “The initial plan was to launch a new female lead, but we liked Sanaya’s audition so much that we decided to cast her. This changed the dynamics and we thought of casting all known faces in the show. However, later we felt that established actors may not bring any freshness to the show and hence, a new face was cast.”
So far, model Farhan Khan’s only claim to fame is a few rampwalks for some shows and appearances in several print ads. But now he’s set to become a household name.
After Sanaya Irani’s Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon went off air, there was no show to match its charm and slake the viewer’s thirst for a daily romantic soap on TV. We hope the show Chhan Chhan fills that void on tube.
Here are a few pictures of Sanaya and Farhan from the launch of the telly show. Also catch other photos of Farhan Khan ahead.
