Popular actor KaranVeer Bohra whose show Dil Se Dua Saubhagyavatibhava will air on the channel said, “Viraj will always be a very special character for me. Initially when the role first came to me, I was very sceptical of playing that part but said yes anyways because it was challenging and had many shades and nuances that really intrigued me about the way his mind mainly functioned. The character gave me a very love-hate feeling towards him, and I was sure that the audiences would feel the same about Viraj too! I wanted to play a character that gave me all the liberty to portray the dark and light shades of topics such which are hidden in the interiors of big homes in our society, and portraying Viraj gave me the chance to showcase exactly what I had wanted to! Shemaroo TV is now bringing back the show that has always been closest to my heart, and I am sure that it will be an absolute treat for all my fans and wellwishers. So, let’s tune in together to catch me as Viraj from the 1st of May only on Shemaroo TV.”
Congratulating on the launch, the famous TV actor Gurmeet Choudhary said, “These are tough times and we all should stay together. What we as actors can do is entertain our audiences and the launch of Shemaroo TV will actually be the best solution for all our entertainment needs. I must say, Shemaroo TV is launching at a perfect time when the entire nation has limited access to entertainment. So I urge everyone to tune in to the channel on 1st May and enjoy all the shows together. Also don’t forget to catch me with my Geet in the serial ‘Geet Hui Sabse Parayi’.”
