'Tumhari Pakhi' first episode expensive
Mumbai: Iqbal Khan, who will be seen as the main lead in 'Tumhari Paakhi', proudly announces that the budget of the first episode of the new show, shot at multiple locations, was enough to make a medium-budget movie.
"I don't think anybody has ever shot on so-many locations for a TV show. We shot in Panchgani, Udaipur, Chittor, Shimla and Satara. It's been a wonderful experience," Iqbal told reporters at the launch of the show.
"The amount of money spent on the first episode is extraordinary. The budget of our first episode is enough to make a decent medium-budget film," added the actor.
Meanwhile, Iqbal also elaborated about his character, who is conscious about his image.
"It is a very real character unlike what is shown on TV these days. The character has one problem that he is very conscious about his image, which leads him into many problems," said Iqbal.
Actress Shraddha Arya plays the title role in the weekly show that will be aired on Life OK from November 11 at 9.30 p.m.
