Cinema meets TV

Cinema meets TV

For the first time a character from the big screen will step into the small screen to share space with a serial’s character.

This unique pairing off will unfold in Sony’s soap Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin on May 27. It will have Bollywood’s current flavour of the season Saif Ali Khan make a cameo appearance in Jassi.

Saif will essay his role of Karan Kapoor, a cartoonist, from his forthcoming film Hum Tum. He will visit Gulmohar House after Jassi invites him over to the fashion house to debate his viewpoints as illustrated in his comic strips — that men are from Mars and women are from Venus. Jassi will beg to differ and so will the bunch of secretaries who, too, are avid readers of his comic strip.

Saif shoot with Jassi yesterday at Chitrath Studios, Powai for the episode. According to Tarun Katiyal, Sony’s executive vice-president, programming and response, “Jassi is a popular show and Saif is a popular star.

As cartoonist Karan Kapoor, the attitude he reflects is quite contrary to what Jassi thinks. This pairing will makes for some great viewing.”

The move to mingle the characters, it is learnt is at the behest of Hum Tum’s producers Yashraj Films. Hum Tum releases on May 28.
