A director makes his comeback to television after 22 years…
It seems the upcoming Arjun Bijlani-Drashti Dhami starrer, ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil’ keeps getting bigger and bigger with every passing day. Apart from roping in a stellar cast, the show has been shooting outdoor in Austria on a huge scale.
And if these things weren’t enough to make the show huge, the crew of the show is seemingly getting even bigger. Wondering what are we talking about?
Well, the show marks the return of a celebrated director to television after a gap of 22 years and that is none other than director, Onir.
Onir is a popular film director and is best known for directing films like ‘My Brother Nikhil’ and ‘Bas Ek Pal’ among others. However, it was television where it all started for Onir, as he worked as an editor on the popular 90s sitcom, ‘Dekh Bhai Dekh’.
According to a leading news portal, Onir has recently shot the promo of ‘Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil’ marking his return to television after this long gap of 22 years.
Onir mentioned that the concept of the show about relationships and the manner in which it is shot is like a short film. He also mentioned that unlike films, TV is not really a director’s fortress, where it is a lot more demanding and doesn’t give the luxury of time too.
He also clarified that he isn’t considering it a downfall, in fact it is his shortcoming to not able to cope up with this fast-paced medium.
