What’s in a name you say? A lot considering ALTBalaji and ZEE5’s upcoming web series ‘Bebaakee’ is fast becoming the talk of the town owing to its unique title. With the hype around the show’s star cast being at a high, the latest name to join the family drama, streaming this July, is the very handsome and versatile actor Karan Jotwani. The actor will be seen playing the character of Imtiyaz Alkazi, a man who strives to be a perfect son, brother, friend, and a professional. He is generous, caring, blunt, honest, practical, and sincere and exemplifies each of these qualities in his work and relationships. He loves and respects his parents, his siblings, and tries to keep the bad habits of his best friend Sufiyaan (Kushal Tandon) in check by being a friend in need. He is a complete package which any girl would fall for.
Speaking about the show, actor Karan Jotwani quipped, “I am thankful to Ekta ma’am for giving me yet another opportunity to work with her again. Bebaakee, the name itself, sounds very profound. My character Imtiyaz is very intriguing and different from my earlier characters. He may not have many layers himself, but shows his complex nature when it comes to the relationship dynamic between Kainaat and Sufi. I am very grateful to work in the show and hope it does wonders for the team.”
The story of ‘Bebaakee’ is based on the lives of Kainaat Sahni and Sufiyaan Alazi, two contrasting characters with strong personalities. Kainaat is a simple and happy-go-lucky girl who has her goals in mind while the guy hails from a rich family. Their love for journalism sees their paths collide leading to the pair feeling a high sense of chemistry between themselves. The puzzle arises when the duo simply can’t seem to figure out if this vibe between them is going to be followed by love or hate. What follows next is an unforeseen chain of events that begins to shake Sufiyaan’s close-knit family and their business.
