In conversation with TelllyBuzz Ekta talks about her show, new female actress in the show and more...
When asked Ekta how differently she would portray the story because there are many love stories based shows on TV these days, she says, "I believe in detailing, even if the story is repeated. I try to give it a new touch to the story for example take RamLeela it was a normal love story but people still liked it because there was lot of detailing created in Ranveer Singh's character, Deepika Padukone's character. It is like tea or sandwich, all make sandwiches but you may like only one sandwich wala because there must be something different in his sandwiches. I think it is more tougher to be different after being similar. It is actually a challenging job to create a world and involving audience in your created world."
As there were reports that Meri Aashiqui.. has been adapted from Emilie Brotnie's Wuthering Heights novel so when asked Ekta about the concept of the show she says, "No it is not, as I said before I believe in making similar thing in a different way. Human beings are nuts we easily get influenced by things coming across in our life sometimes we get highly influenced and we actually land up copying but sometimes we keep it as base and try to bring something different from it. The story is about two families poor and rich staying in the same house and the rich family is not realizing the value of poor family."
Any specific reason for launching a new face in the show? Ekta says, "We took auditions all over India and we found Radhika Madan perfect for this role. Before starting the shoots she has been taken for work shops for training as she is a new actor. There was vulnerability required I needed a raw talent and she had that."
We wish Ekta Kapoor all the best of luck for her new venture.
