Sandiip Sikcand’s maiden production venture ‘Dhhai Kilo Prem’ raised quite a few eyebrows for the unconventional love story between two plus sized people & 3 weeks into the show, the audiences have already found their connect with the lead actors played by Anjali Anand and Meherzan Mazda.
Apparently the female protagonist Anjali has been receiving appreciation for her outfits & the way she carries herself with confidence on the show but the makers recently learnt that she is also a fabulous dancer & decided to rope in a romantic Bollywood style rain dance sequence.
While Mumbai’s months away from the monsoons, Dhhai Kilo Prem will see Anjali dancing to a passionate rain song. Its her realisation of love for Piyush (Meherzaad Mazda). It’ll probably be the first time on Indian television that the makers will film a rain dance sequence with a plus size actress as opposed to what we have always seen on TV.
Kudos to the makers for walking an extra mile with this progressive attempt in the nascent stage of the show. Bollywood chose Vidya Balan’s voluptuous figure in Dirty Picture over Kareena Kapoor’s size zero in Tashan, it is about time Television breaks free & tries something never done more.
Dhhai Kilo Prem’s rain dance sequence will set a benchmark for the upcoming shows & will prove that plus size can also fall in love and can be as charming and pretty as any other girl in love.
