Queen of Indian television Ekta Kapoor has revealed details of her upcoming drama, which launches on Sony Entertainment Television Asia this year.
According to a report on Mumbai Mirror, ‘Kuch Is Tarah’ will star Ekta’s blue-eyed boy Akashdeep Sehgal in a never-seen-before avtar as the main lead opposite a fresh face.
‘Kuch Is Tarah’ is touted to be a passionate love story with a dramatic twist to it and will have a Punjabi family set up.
Creative Head of Balaji Television shows for Sony, Prashant Bhatt confirms that Ekta is indeed launching another show. He says, “It is a never-seen-before plot with very different look.”
According to Bhatt, since people love to copy Balaji shows and take inspiration from them, this time around “we are coming up with something new for people to copy. Even Akashdeep۪s character is a never-seen-before character.”
Ekta discovered her new heroine after auditioning girls all across the country. Finally she found her in Mumbai itself. Adds Bhatt, “Sudha Chandran will be playing a positive role, contrary to her negative image on television. She was extremely keen to do this role and she will be able to carry it off well.”
Talking about her come-back to Balaji after ‘Kahin Kissi Roz’, Sudha says, “It۪s great to back with Balaji. It۪s like coming back home. I took up this role as it۪s a different and meaty character. Mine is fun-loving Punjabi family in the show and I play Akashdeep۪s mother. It’s a family drama with loads of twists and turns to watch out for.”
The only other Ekta Kapoor soap on Sony TV is ‘Khwaish’, which launched as the production house’s first Indo-Pak soap. ‘Kuch Is Tarah’ launches on Sony TV in mid-November.
