Television actor Rahil Azim better known as the villanious Ashmit Gujral in ''Yeh Meri Life Hai, is back on small screen after a long hiatus.
Raahil plays Aditya Balraaj a business tycoon in new daily soap ''Resham Dankh'' to be aired on Star One from August 14.
Raahil is cast opposite Mauli Ganguly who also makes a comeback after her serial ''Kahi Kissi Roz'' wrapped up few years ago. She was part of ''Sarkar'' a political thriller on Zee tv some time back.
Talking to UNI, Raahil said ''Resham Dankh'' was based on Atish Kapadia's Gujarati novel by the same name. ''We have shot about eight to ten episodes. The idea of the serial steamed from the story that Aatish Kapadia penned down for Chitralekha. It has a definite beginning, middle and end and will not drag on endlessly like other soaps,'' he added.
Speaking about his new character, Rahil said he plays the protagonist in the serial which he describes as a ''social thriller''. ''The story is about a business family and how a child born into the family brings it closer,'' he added.
The actor, earlier played ''Hatim'' on Star Plus and also was part of Ekta Kapoor's ''Kahi Kissi Roz'' and few other serials.
But, his role in ''Yeh Meri Life Hai'' gave him lot of fame.
''I got to portray different shades in one role. I got lot of fan following specially abroad. I got even more famous after my character turned negative,'' he recalled.
Speaking about Resham Dank, he said the serial will be aired from Monday to Thursday at 2130 hrs on Star One.
‘Resham Dank’ is a gripping drama of young parents’ unconditional love for their child. A riveting story of unthinkable betrayal, revenge and supreme sacrifice, he added.
The cast also includes Sumit Raghavan and Apara Mehta amongst others.
The show will also see a comeback of veteran actress Sulbha Deshpande as ‘Janki Mausi’. It will feature a small wonder Yash Bhadrani playing the key role of ‘Dev Balraaj’, Aditya's son.
Aatish Kapadia and J D Majethia whose current soap on Star Plus is Baa Baby Aur Bahu, interspersed with humour that is rarely successful on television, has conceived ''Resham Dankh''.
