on after its superhit serial "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi",
"Kabhi Souten, Kabhi Saheli" (KSKS) marks yet another landmark
for Balaji which seems to have made the making of successfull
serials into an assemblyline habit. Shooting for the serial is
simultaneously going on in English.
see a big market for our serials in countries like the West Indies,
Fiji, South Africa, Mauritius, etc, which have third and fourth
generation Indian communities residing there," Balaji CEO Sanjay
Dosi said. " In Hindi, there was the language problem which we
had to get around if we wanted to properly exploit our potential.
We considered subtitling but felt that while this might work for
full length features, it would fail in the serial format," Dosi
said. "We are not trying for another "Mouthful of Sky" (the first
Indian soap made in English), Dosi clarified. The actors will
be mouthing normal dialogues with no attempts at Anglising," he
KSKS will air four times a week from Monday to Thursday at 9:30
pm. If the promos are anything to go by anyway, there appears
to have been some "visual inspiration" from the critically
acclaimed Tamil film "Kandukondein Kundukondein" which was itself
loosely based on Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility".
