Rajan Shahi is a name to reckon with in the entertainment industry. With shows like “Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai”, “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai”, “Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke”, “Kuch Toh Log Kahenge”, “Amrit Manthan”, and “Anupamaa”, to name a few, here are five reasons that sets him apart from the others in the industry.
Started from the grassroots level: Though he first came to Mumbai to become an actor, his journey in the industry started when he assisted Ravi Rai for “Imtihaan”. He then worked as a director with him on “Sailaab” and directed his first independent project “Dil Hai Ki Maanta Nahi”. He later started his own production company called Director’s Kut Productions and created his first show “Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai” under his banner. Since he started from the very basic, he is well aware of the know-how of the industry and puts his best foot forward.
Attitude towards work: Not many producers in the industry visit the sets of their show as often as Rajan does. He is not only involved in the story making process but is also present during shoots to keep his team motivated. This shows how dedicated and passionate he is towards his work.
Connection with his cast and crew: From interacting with everyone on a personal level to taking good care of his cast and crew, Rajan Shahi does it all, so much so that his actors call the sets of their show home away from home. This shows how well he is connected to his team.
Trendsetter: From “Sapna Babul Ka…Bidaai” to “Anupamaa”, Rajan Shahi has made shows which were different from the shows that were currently on-air. Be it the story of two sisters in “… Bidaai” or the story of a middle-aged woman in “Anupamaa”, he has been setting trends on the telly with these unique stories.
A great eye for casting: Name any show of his and you will find the most suitable set of actors in it. Be it Hina Khan and Karan Mehra in “Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai” or the current lead pair Mohsin Khan and Shivangi Joshi, or Sara Khan, Parul Chauhan and Angad Hasija in “…Bidaai”, or Rupali Ganguly and Sudhanshu Pandey in “Anupamaa”, Rajan Shahi’s actors fit perfectly in their characters and make their character look very real and relatable.
