Main Banungi Miss India TV Serial - Doordarshan National (DD1)

Mai Banungi Miss India TV Serial was one of the major attempt from Doordarshan to change its image. This beauty pageant based TV Series was premiered as "Miss India TV Serial"on Doordarshan National (DD1) on 19 May 2004 at 9:30 PM. Taking a cue from the 'infamous' Laxmi Pandit incident, the serial was aimed to take a peek into the world of glamour that has taken youngsters fancy. Pandit's Miss India-World title was revoked after it was found that she had embellished few facts on her bio-data.





Produced by Rupesh Gohil, under the banner of Uthopia Production, the show was directed by debutante Sabir Mustaffa. Bhojpuri Actress Pakhi hegde and Kajal became well known faces accross country. Touted to be based on the real life story of director Sabir Mustaffa, the show stars Pakhi Hegde as Suhani Sahay (Female Lead), Shilpa Shinde as Sanjana Guzral (Female Village), Prithvi Zutsi as Mr.. Guzral (Sanjana'a Father),  Dalip Tahil, Carran Kapur, Kajal Sharma, and Shweta Kawatra. Former Indian Batsman Vinod Kambali was also introduced to TV Industry with a role of Photographer in this serial.


While the screenplay was written by Brij Mohan, dialogues were written by Rajesh Saksham, cinematography by Mahendra Ryan and music was given by Sachin. The serial was a grim look at the glamour industry. It was an honest attempt to look at if the path to the beauty pageant is a bed of roses or is strewn with thorns. 

The serial came in controversies when actress Shilpa Shinde has been thrown out of Mai Banungi Miss India. News came that the producer of the show was tired of her tantrums and asked the actress to leave. Shilpa had been doing the show for over two-and-a-half-years.

Rupesh Gohil, the producer of the show informs, "Yes we had to thrown Shilpa out of the show because she was acting pricey. Shilpa had been doing fine so long, but of late, she had been literally harassing us with her unsolicited suggestions and by coming late on the sets. When I tried to speak to her, Shilpa was rude and wouldn't listen. Besides, Shilpa would often ask her dialogues to be changed according to her sweet will. That day when she came in late and insisted to change the screenplay, I told her categorically either to behave properly or to leave the show. I am glad my unit wouldn't have to suffer any more."    

When contacted, Shilpa Shinde denies the news. She says, "This is not such a big issue. Since I am doing another daily soap, Paraya Dhan, I was having date problems and had to leave Miss India. As for my being rude to the unit is concerned, it is a lie. I have always adjusted my dates and always shot wherever they wanted me to. However I guess they simply didn't want to work with me and are coming up with excuses. I had requested them to shorten my track, but they never listened."


Mai Banoongi Miss India TV Serial retained its top position for DD1 for 3 years from June 2004 till its end. With the success of this serial Rupesh Dhirubhai Gohil's RDG Production became one of the key players in the Indian Television Industry. They have managed to catch the imagination of the viewers and were also able to generate high revenue for the respective channels, Later RDG productions also produced popular series like Air Hostess TV Serial and Chupau Kaise laaga Chunari Me Daag TV Serial for Doordarshan National (DD1).
