Sameer Dharmadhikari to play Maharaja of Jhansi in Zee TV`s
 
Sameer Dharmadhikari to play Maharaja of Jhansi in Zee TV`sSameer Dharmadhikari is going to play the role of Maharaja of Jhansi in the Zee TV`s upcoming show tentatively titled `Rani Lakshmi Bai` produced by Contiloe. Sameer was recently seen playing the lead in `Main Teri Parchain Hoon` in NDTV Imagine.

The historical show is based on the life of Jhansi Ki Rani. According to an industry source, "He will be playing the role of the Maharaja of Jhansi, Gangadhar Rao, who was the husband of Rani Lakshmi Bai."

Zee TV has opted for Contiloe to produce this masterwork venture for them but the title of `Jhansi Ki Rani` and the script is registered with the earlier producers, Innovative 9. Hence, it is expected that Contiloe show will start with a new title which has not been finalised yet.

Abhimanyu Singh of Contiloe stated, "We are still thinking about the title though we have tentatively named it Rani Lakshmi Bai. Our show will air on Zee TV."

Earlier Producer Chandan Singh of Innovative 9, expressed his displeasure saying, "The channel has given my show to Contiloe. They are threatening our artists to be part of the Contiloe show, stating that they will blacklist them otherwise."

He added, "I haven`t told my artists that we are not producing the show any more or they can go and do other projects. The artists have the contract with us and not the channel. They have asked the channel to get an NOC from us."

He further added, "Of course my project will take place. I have invested 9 crore rupees in it and the shoot will start again in the third week of May. Above all, the script and title has been registered by us, so legally there is no chance of two shows airing with the same title."
