Neena Gupta has made an announcement that will make every TV enthusiast dance. If you are tired of the humdrum of the saas-bahu sagas that plague the Indian TV at the moment, something refreshing might be on its way. Neena has said that she is reviving her TV show, Saans. Yes, a sequel of the show is on the cards. Saans was a critically acclaimed TV show, that aired in 1998-1999. Neena not only starred in the show, but also directed it. For the ones aware with the said TV show, know that Indians serials were not always as they are not. We used to have quality over quantity.
