From Jodha Akbar to Yeh Hai Mohabbatein; Kumkum Bhagya to Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi; Ekta Kapoor is back in the game as she has been belting out hits after hits. She is set to launch her new show titled Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye on Life OK.
According to Ekta Kapoor, Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye starring Sonali Bendre and Apoorva Agnihotri is bold and controversial.
“It’s bold and it’s controversial, but there is no extra marital affair. It will be interesting and emotional. It’s a strong understanding of how society looks at women.” stated Ekta Kapoor at the press conference held to announce the show.
When asked what prompted her to make the show, Ekta stated, “It’s funny, it has quirky characters and it’s light hearted. Many of my viewers started saying you show happily married couples who are perfect, which added pressure on us. Marriage is just not a status, it’s a deal.”
Of what we have heard, Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye is a finite series that has a total of about hundred and four episodes.
“The finite series is a good move. It’s interesting. Ekta was the only person who can give the right look and thought that it needs to be given without making it look too alien to the viewers.” informs Sonali Bendre while interacting with the media.
For Sonali Bendre it was her character in Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye that compiled her to take on the show.
“I never thought of doing a fiction show, but here I am with a fiction show. The character was such that I couldn’t say no. The most important thing, I said yes to the show, as it’s a finite show. Our episodes are fixed, we have a graph. This show means a lot to me. I trust Ekta and Ekta’s storytelling has been different.” stated Sonali Bendre.
Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh is an love story between two matured people met by luck and they bond.
Apoorva Agnihotri, who was last seen in Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara, states that he is very lucky to be sharing screen space with an actor like Sonali Bendre.
“I am lucky that Sonali is making her fiction debut opposite me. I am a fan. She is a wonderful actress. She has so much of experience behind her but on the sets she is very childlike. My character of Vikram is very different from the roles I did in the past. It has got multiple layers into it. I just pray that I live up to Ekta’s expectations.” stated Apoorva
Ajeeb Daastaan Hai Ye is set to premiere on October 07, 2014 on Life OK.
