Shweta Tiwari (Prerna of Kasautii Zindagii Kay) and Vinay Jain (Aryan of Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin) will soon come together in a play, Shararat.
The first show will be staged in April. The play is co-produced by the husband-wife duo of Navin Kumar and Prairna Agarwal (of Pyar Hua Chori Chori fame). While Prairna has written the play, Navin will direct.
Says Prairna, "The play has three characters — Kavita (Shweta), Kunal (Vinay) and a Sardar (Navin). It is a romantic comedy. Vinay and Shweta land up in the same hotel room, and each wants the other to leave."
Explaining why she chose Shweta and Vinay, she said, "Shweta looks serious in the TV show, but I could sense that she is a very chulbuli ladki in real life. When I met her, I knew I had hit the nail on the head.
As for Vinay, I need a suave, billionaire look, which went with what I saw of him in Jassi Jaissi Koi Nahin. I knew he was different from the negative shades he portrays."Done theatre before
This is not the first time that Shweta will be doing stage; she earlier acted in Khubsoorat, Kiraydar and Gaz Foot Inch, in her pre-television days.
Talking to HiTLIST, Shweta says, "But of course, now it will be a different story. Shararat is a big challenge. I haven't faced the audience eye-to-eye in seven years, but I am sure I'm going to enjoy it."
Vinay too has done plays — a comedy, Two To Tango — but he says this one is different. "I was dying to do a comedy like Shararat, and you will realise what I mean once it starts to roll."
Both actors have started rehearsing for the new assignment. "We are reading the script in detail till late almost everyday. It is really exhausting, but satisfying as well," Vinay concludes. A studio's been booked for rehearsals.
