Mahesh Bhatt’s unfinished film, Girvi, that starred Ajay Devgn and Pooja Bhatt will now be made into a television serial titled Udaan. Bhatt says, “This film could not be finished due to some problems.
One day, Gurudev Bhalla, one of my assistants on the film, came to me and asked if the story could be made into a serial. I agreed."

The show is about how an unborn girl child from a poor man’s family is pawned to a zamindar. “In the film, the unborn child grows up to be Ajay Devgn. But for the show, the gender has been changed — an unborn girl child is pawned instead. Rest of the premise remains the same.''
Actress Sai Deodhar, who earlier played the lead in shows such as Saara Aakaash and Ek Ladki Anjaani Si, will headline the cast in this show.
In the meantime, Bhatt is also collaborating with Rajan Shahi for a show for another channel. Written by Zama Habib, the story is not a saas-bahu saga. It is said to be about an ambitious girl who wants to fulfill her dreams at any cost.
