Actor Aditya Redij and actress Shweta Munshi, who portray the roles of Mahesh and Prabha, respectively, in “Bandhan”, will bid adieu to the Zee TV show soon.
Set in a small village in Maharashtra, the show revolves around the bond that a family of a forest ranger shares with a baby elephant named Ganesh.
The show, which began Sep 16, is ready for a twist where the brother-sister relationship of a little girl Darpan (played by Ananya Agarwal) and an elephant calf will grow stronger without her parents — Mahesh and Prabha, essayed by Aditya and Shweta, respectively.
Speaking on his exit from the show, Aditya said in a statement: “It was a delightful journey to act as a forest ranger, gelling up well with the elephant calf. Even all of my co-actors were very supportive.”
Shooting in a forest location and spending most of the time away from his home for months was a challenge for Aditya, but made it a memorable experience for him too.
For Shweta, the “beautiful family” they made on the set will remain as a “sweet memory”.
“Aditya Redij, Darpan and the elephant calf were very cordial warm co-actors,” she said.
Their exit will be shown with a death scene in the episode to be aired Tuesday.
