Love Saga: A still from Ishq Ka Rang Safed

Colors’ new offering, Ishq Ka Rang Safed introduces you to Dhani and Viplav and how their lives intersect along the Ganges. Dhani is a young widow, who has given up all hopes of leading a good life while Viplav is a high-caste boy, who is hopelessly in love with her and wants to break away from all the moral constructs to make her his own. Will their love bloom and find acceptance in this orthodox society?

Making a comeback on the small-screen, Mishal Raheja has been cast opposite newcomer Eisha Singh. While carefree Viplav prioritises happiness over rules, Dhani is uncomplainingly confined within the conventional protocols of widowhood.

Commenting on Ishq Ka Rang Safed, producer Rupali Guha says, “Ishq Ka Rang Safed is our second offering on Colors. After Uttaran, we wanted to come back with an equally strong and poignant subject. When I read a short story about widows, I felt some things in India cannot change; one of them being rituals and beliefs associated with widowhood. The title was inspired by a Rekha Bharadwaj song based on Kabir’s dohas. In fact it was a pleasure to re-record the song with Rekhaji. We hope the viewers appreciate our efforts as we bring forth this beautiful love story of Viplav Tripathi played by Mishal Raheja and Dhani, played by young newcomer, Eisha Singh. The cast is ably supported by stalwarts such as Pratima Kazmi, Arun Bakshi, and Vidya Sinha.”

Speaking about his role as Viplav, Mishal Raheja said, “I wanted to make a comeback to the small screen through a strong character with a difference. The volatile role of Viplav fits in perfectly with the definition of what I wanted. I immediately knew I had to sign the show!”

Commenting about her role as Dhani, Eisha Singh commented, “With Ishq Ka Rang Safed, I will kick start my acting career on a powerful platform like Colours. At the threshold of my journey as an actor, essaying the role of a young widow, Dhani will add great value to my experience. While playing bubbly girl-next-door appeals to every young actor, I feel lucky to have landed a challenging role such as Dhani.”

Watch Viplav and Dhani’s story unfold starting August 10, 2015, Monday to Saturday at 6:30 pm only on Colors.
