Veteran actor Ali Asgar who is playing Captain Vikram in Jeannie and Juju is confident that the Indianized version of this American concept will work out as he feels that this has universal appeal. He explains, "After all, everyone loves a fantasy tale."

He is full of praise for his co-star Giaa Manek. He says, "Giaa has been the cutest co-star that I have ever had. She comes with no baggage, attitude or vanity- she comes with her pure innocence, talent, zest and chirpiness instead. She has the perfect comic timing. For a change I have an actress almost as tall as me, so we can be in the same frame." 

Ali, who is extremely popular for his roles in comedy and serious drama, is looking forward to doing a negative role. He explains, "It shouldn't be like a gang war type character but like Mother India's Sukhilal. I want to do a character so that people should hate the character and not Ali Asgar. People would for instance hate Pransab the character so much they never named any child as Pran."

However as of now watch Ali Asgar as the lovable Captain Vikram Khanna who is besotted with Jeannie in Jeannie Aur Juju. The show launches on SAB TV on November 5th at 9:30pm.  Do watch this space for more interesting updates on the show.
