Talented Delnaaz Irani, who has impressed one and all with her comic performances in various TV show (Baa Bahoo Aur Baby, Akbar Birbal and Jamai Raja) and films (Kal Ho Naa Ho and Kyaa Super Kool Hai Hum) might now be ready for one of the bigger tests of her career.
Yes, if sources are to be believed, Delnaaz might be selected to play the role of mother of the five girls in the remake of the cult Zee TV show Hum Paanch now to be telecast on Big Magic (Esselvision), as per media reports.
The original role was essayed by veteran film actress Shoma Anand. If this news is confirmed it will be a big feather in the cap for Delnaaz as even now Hum Paanch, which was the first success of Ekta Kapoor (1995-1999), is fresh in our minds.
With this nugget of info, Indianwikimedia connected with Delnaaz who shared the offer indeed came to her but she could not take it up due to shooting constraints owing to venue.
“The shoot will be out of Mumbai, hence the issue. I have other commitments which require me to stay in the city. Otherwise, it’s a great honour to enter Shomaji’s shoes.”
However, our source maintains that Delnaaz is very high on the short list and still might make the final cut.
The cult show also featured Vidya Balan, Ashok Saraf, Bhairavi Raichura etc.
Indianwikimedia.com will soon come up with more updates.
