“This time we are taking three stories of Ruskin Bond”, Subhadarshini Singh, the director and producer of the serial, said.
‘Sensualist’, ‘Time Stops at Shamli’ and ‘Shooting at Mango Top’ are three stories of noted writer Ruskin Bond that will be adapted on screen.
Rusty is a constant factor in all these stories. But this time, three Sikkimese actors, two from Sikkim Hisheyla Bhutia and Sangey Udenla, and one Sikkimese actor Sheri Bhutia have been roped in for the show.
Actor Ayub Khan will also be seen in a different role of a quirky police inspector Keemat Lal."This is not a usual run-of-the-mill role. It is a good outlet to be here and do different roles," said Khan.
The stories are based in a time when Rusty is almost 30, a struggling writer who is back from England and living in Mulberry Cottage.
The shoot of ‘Ek Tha Rusty II’ will be telecasted on Doordarshan from June with total 52 episodes.
