Hanif Hilal, the choreographer turned actor had been offered an interesting role in Star One and Balaji Telefilms' Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahani.
However, the latest is that the creative team has worked out lots of changes in the story line, so much so that they have removed the negative shaded character, which Hanif was to play.
A little birdie tells us, "The initial few episodes that had been shot, have been scrapped and the re-shoot has begun. The story line has been altered and the fresh story has nothing do with the popular Twilight. The negativity in the show which Hanif's character was to bring has been taken off."
We hear that the story will be a dark love-story instead, while Vivian Dsena, Sukirti Khanpal and Priya Val will be introduced in the initial episodes, the fourth lead, Vikas Goopta's entry will happen only after first ten episodes.
When contacted Hanif said, "I was suppose to play a character, however, I have not been contacted recently. Above all, I don't know about the creative changes going on."
The unit was to shoot at Lavassa, but bad weather has spoiled their plans. Later they decided to shoot at Hyderabad, but that too did not materialize. Presently the team is contemplating to shoot at Panchgani. These creative changes have pushed back the launch date of the show and Pyar Ki Yeh Ek Kahani is expected to launch on Oct. 11.
