In today’s day and age, web streaming platforms have infused a new life in series and shows which were a super hit back in the day. One such series has been Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Gossip Girl. The American teen drama ran successfully for six seasons from 2007 to 2012 and created a massive fan base along the way. Full of drama, scheming and loyalties being tested, Gossip Girl went on to have a cult following and is considered to be one of the best teen dramas.
The series which revolved around a bunch of Upper East side teenagers and the mysterious blogger ‘Gossip Girl’ has now led to a sequel series, given its immense popularity. The original series featured Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen, Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorfand, ‘You’ star Penn Badgley as Dan Humphrey, Chace Crawford as Nate Archibald, Ed Westwick as Chuck Bass and Taylor Momsen as Jenny Humphrey among many other recurring characters.
Gossip Girl’s success led to scores of adaptations, but today we decided to re-imagine if Gossip Girl was ever to be adapted by Bollywood, who could be perfect to play the show’s leading characters. Yes, we know touching popular US shows is a crime, but this is more like a ‘What If’ situation.
