Ekta Kapoor's ambitious project titled Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani – A Dark Luv Story will soon be hitting the telly-tube. The show, which is soon going to launch on STAR One, has some interesting faces like Vivian Dsena, Sukirti Khandpal, Priya Wal, Vikas Goopta, Hanif Hilal, Suyash Kumar and Tabrez Khan in the key roles
The fact can't be argued that producer Ekta Kapoor has an eye for her character and doesn't relax till she finds apt faces that match the profile on her mind. It is believed that Kapoor wanted new and fresh looking faces for her show and didn't go for established names for she didn't want it to look like a typical soap. Apparently, she has gone with well-trained actors with a theater background, which will enable her to make an impact on the viewers. The team has shot for the second promo, which has just hit the screens.
Vivian Dsena, who essays the role of Abhay on the show, says, "I can't directly comment on the reason behind Ekta choosing me to play Abhay. All I can say is that she wants perfect faces to play different characters on her show. I would like to be myself on the show rather than aping someone."
Vikas Goopta, whose association with Ekta goes a long way, says, "The character of Siddhart that I play is quite similar to me in real life. Siddhart is a 20-year-old college-going guy, who faces the same set of problems as I did during my college, and which any other teenager of his age would probably go through. He is one of the most good-looking guys in the college, and has girls chasing him all the time. He wants to party out and live life to the fullest. I am quite like Siddhart."
Commenting about his co-star Vivian, he says, "Vivian is one of the best-looking faces in the industry. He is an interesting guy and has the looks to play a supernatural being. I feel the Portuguese blood in him has done wonders for him. He fits the bill perfectly."
Meet, Creative Head of the show, says, "Well, Ekta wanted some fresh faces in the show. Sukirti has done some shows, but hasn't seen much exposure and Vivian is just the right match "
"Like you read in a popular tabloids today, Ekta has sacked 28 writers from the team - It's because she wants a perfect story and wants to crack it as planned. She wouldn't compromise with the show at all", adds Meet.
Priya Wal, who has worked with Balaji in Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, feels that working with Ekta Kapoor is the best thing that can happen to any actor. "Ekta ma'am is the best narrator in the industry so far. When she narrates a character, you are immediately energised to start shooting that very moment. I think she had me on mind when she thought of the character Nisha. The casting took so long to get finalized, as the producer wanted to be 100 percent sure of the faces she was roping in and the story of the show. The show is different from the current ones on air. It will be a different treat for the viewers and also for the actors, who will get to put their potential to test."
Adding to the reason for her having had bagged the role of Nisha, she says, "The character is of a strong and bratty girl, and she must have felt me fit to play it. Also, I have done a similar role in another show titled Remix on STAR One, so, probably, that too came to her mind."
Hold your breath to watch this unique and never tried before dark love story on STAR One!
