After Ekta Kapoor's Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, Rohit Roy to revive Swabhimaan

Reboot and revive has become the latest trend of television. While everyone adores the idea of nostalgia, Ekta Kapoor is all set to encash it and bring the reboot version of her iconic love saga, Kasautii Zindagii Kay. Now, another ’90s show is going to be revived. And it is none other than the Doordarshan show, Swabhimaan. Rohit Roy, who played the handsome and suave businessman Rishabh Malhotra in it, will be bringing it back to our television screens.

This Mahesh Bhatt production that introduced many Bollywood stars like Sandhya Mridul, Manoj Bajpayee and Ashutosh Rana will witness a 20 year leap. The original cast comprising of Deepak Parashar, Kitu Gidwani, Harsh Chhaya and others will be retained and new actors will be roped in to play their kids. Speaking about this to Mid Day, Rohit revealed,”I am remaking it. Amit Khanna [producer] advised me to revisit the show, and I’m trying to put it together. It’s a different storyline, with the original cast reprising their roles. We will have new actors playing our kids. The show will see a 20-year leap. I will be back as Rishabh Malhotra.” He further added, “The show is now streaming on YouTube, and still has the same effect on viewers. What Shobhaa De wrote about me ‘the Prince of Housewives’ is making a comeback.” It indeed seems a year of reboots and revives. What do you think?
