BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | August 9, 2011

Chopra family ke court mein... aaj ek aur mukdma dayar hua... judge sahab Papa... Mr. Raj Chopra ne faisla suna diya... Indian Home Act ke tahit Main nakara karaar diya gaya.... Miliye Kunal Chopra Se!Parichay’ – Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka produced by television maverick Ekta Kapoor is the latest fiction offering on COLORS. The story revolves around a fallen hero Kunal Chopra played by Samir Soni who has lost his zest in life due to his failures and continues to lead a nonchalant life. This modern day story which revolves around love, life and a second chance premiers today at 9.30 pm and will be telecast every Monday to Thursday.

According to Ormax Media’s predictive model based on their awareness tracking tool Showbuzz, the show is set to open at a first- week average TVR of 2.8. Depending on the content quality, the TVR can be 10-15% higher on either side.

Talking on the launch of the show, Ashvini Yardi, Head Of Programming, said, "We are delighted to once again team up with Ekta to produce this very realistic story of Kunal Chopra. He is undergoing testing times in his personal and professional life, with the chips being down... and being pushed against the wall to face criticism. However life presents him with a second chance to redeem himself all over again and win his lost glory. This story of hope and second chance is sure to inspire many lives and set an example. In the past, we have shown thick friendships, love relationships and now with Parichay, viewers will get to see brother bonding and deep inter- personal relations on television.”

Speaking about the show, Ekta Kapoor says, “I draw my inspiration from the society and the everyday life people I interact with. I meet a mix of people - heroes and fallen heroes daily. Being from the industry, I have seen many life changing stories of some who could never figure out why they failed and some who couldn't even find a launch pad. Failure is personal but it is also powerful. It could either make or break a person. What is important is to keep the hope of a better future alive and that is exactly what Parichay is all about. Samir Soni is the perfect fit for Kunal, a character you want to know about.”

Protagonist Kunal Chopra essayed by Samir Soni says, “My hiatus on small screen comes to an end with Kunal Chopra. There are very few male centric roles on television today and none of them are so powerful. Kunal is a very complex character who has lost everything in life and has more or less accepted defeat. Working with Balaji and Ekta has been a blast and her insight into the life of a struggler. I am positive that the audiences will feel for him and also relate to him in different ways.”

Parichay - Nayee Zindagi Kay Sapno Ka presents an ensemble cast with Samir Soni essaying the protagonist Kunal Chopra along with other talented actors like Vivek Mishra (Father), Alka Amin (Mother), Aarti Singh (Sister-in-law), Ayaz Khan (Elder brother), Saurabh Jain (Younger brother) and Prerna Wanvari (Younger sister) as the Chopras. Essaying a pivotal role as Siddhi Malik will be Ekta’s new find – Kirti Nagpure, a fun-loving and well-cultured lawyer.

    The character kunal chopra fits perfectly in this serial but wife siddi Chopra always in trouble in life crying through out the serial all the it seems God has showered all mishapping in her life. Artisingh (Sister in-law)has lost her valuable person but still charming and laughing. The serial is good but when it comes to siddi chopra it seems the season of crying has come.
