Dhoop Kinare being remade after 25 years on Sony

Rajan Shahi's Kuch To Log Kahenge that goes on air from October 3, 2011 on Sony is an adaptation of the popular Pakistani television drama Dhoop Kinare starring Rahat Kazmi and Marina Khan. The television series is being re-written by well-known writer Kamlesh Pandey who has also written the script of Rang De Basanti.

A source says, "The channel and the production house wanted to try something new and decided to remake the popular Pakistani series Dhoop Kinare. The channel even approached the actual story writer Haseena Moin for an approval and she was pleased to learn that her 25 year old series was being remade on Indian television. She had written the story of Dhoop Kinare in just two hours on being challenged by a friend. Furthermore, Haseena ji was happy that Kamlesh Pandey was re-writing the script. However Kamlesh Pandey wasn't very keen on writing for TV but when he got to know that he had to re-write Dhoop Kinare he readily agreed."

Kuch To Log Kahenge is a love story between an elder man and a younger woman. Kritika Kamra and Mohnish Behl will play the leads Dr. Nidhi Verma and Dr. Ashutosh on the show. Other actors on the show include veteran Alok Nath, Vijay Kashyap and Rukhsar. Tanya Abrol who was last seen in Sony's Palampur Express is also a part of the show.

When contacted writer Kamlesh Pandey said, "Dhoop Kinare had brought two countries together back then. And if Kuch To Log Kahenge manages to do the same then I would say I have succeeded in my work."
