Indore, MP India (PressExposure) August 10, 2011 -- Lapataganj gears up to host the wedding of Biji Pandey & Surili!!!
Lapataganj is a small town forgotten by the system. Staying amidst the town are relatable & innocent people like Mukundilal Gupta, Indumati, Biji Pandey, Surili, Mausi, Mama, Eliza, Sutti etc who have been appreciated & admired by the viewers galore.
Amongst the day to day issues that Lapataganj showcases it also has a love story of Biji & Surili who are still waiting for Mausi (Shubhangi Gokhale) & Mama's nod for their wedding. Biji Pandey (Abbas Khan)is a struggling lover and aspiring lawyer for the last 10 years. And Surili (Priti Ameen)is the daughter of Mausi .She is pretty and while sending her on earth; God pressed the mute button so hard that her beautiful expressions in words are limited to "Khao, Jaao, Laao...Aao.
Biji Pandey & Surili's love story has brought brightest colour to Lapataganj. They are deeply in love and have tried everything to convince Mausi.Biji Pandey aka Abbas Khan from winning matches to attempting suicide in sholay ishtyle to participating in cycling competition did everything but, could not pass L.L.B (law exams)to impress his would be mother-in -law.
Mausi who, is against the love affair of her daughter Surili with Biji Pandey will fix Surili's marriage with Thakur's son from a neighboring village 'Bholaganj'. The reason for Mausi to search another guy for Surili is that she doesn't find Biji Pandey suitable for Surili. Even after he has completed L.L.B he is still unemployed and hence, does not get mausi's sign of approval.
Thus, upon hearing that Mausi is trying to marry off Surili to someone else they both decide to elope. The entire Lapataganj is worried for their whereabouts.
Abbas Khan aka Biji Pandey said that, "In the show finally Biji and Surili will meet and cross all hurdles to tie the know. While we were shooting the track in a certain sequence I had to run after the bus to stop Surili and as the shoot was quite long the sequence was being shot throughout the day...as I had kept my roza even after that I gave the shot with all my dedication."
Priti Ameen aka Surili commented, "Its interesting track with lots of engaging moments. I elope from my home and we both find a beautiful location, we decide to stay there and as we are shooting separately for these parts in Filmcity hence, we are missing on all action and fun that happens every day on our sets in lunch hours."
She added, "In this track in some parts we are shown atop a hill beside a small canal romancing each other but, in reality we were surrounded by flames of mosquitoes and I had to jump in mud throughout the shoot."
Whether Mausi will agree to their marriage, what will happen to Biji Pandey when he faces Thakur's goons, Will Biji & Surili get married eventually will be seen in the upcoming episodes?
