The character has given me many shades to portray : Ariah Agrawal

The uber stylish and glamorous Ariah Agrawal who currently essays the role of Mishka in the show Kasauti Zindagi Kay, is happy that she has bagged the role because she is getting to perform. In the current track Mishka is seen to be heartbroken because Anurag (Parth Samthaan) falls in love with Prerna and breaks the engagement. Also, further, her sister Komolika (Hina Khan) will no longer support her as she herself is interested in Anurag. This will make Mishka angry and feel cheated that her own sister stabbed her in the back.

Ask Ariah how she enjoys playing Mishka and she says, “Komolika is the most glamorous vamp on the show but I must say that the makers have given me too, a stylish avatar and audiences have loved my naive, good girl character a lot. My role has different shades and it portrays a lot of emotions. From someone who is deeply in love to being cheated and deceived. I am enjoying it very much.”

Ariah, who has been a model earlier, looks sensuous and is definitely going places after essaying the naive and pretty Mishka.

Ariah Agrawal gets saved by her co-actor Parth Samthaan in a fire accident

TV actress Ariah Agrawal had a narrow escape, recently and she can’t thank God and her co-actor Parth Samthaan for that. Ariah, who recently entered the show Kasauti Zindagi Kay 2, as Anurag’s fiancé got involved in an unfortunate accident on the sets. Apparently the actress was shooting for a scene and she runs after Parth in the show. She sees a photograph of Prerna and tears it and throws it out of the window after burning it. The burnt paper fell on the curtain and the whole mansion catches fire. This is when everyone started running out of the building and Anurag saved Mishka and ran out of the sets.

Ariah said, “I never thought that the burnt piece of paper will catch fire like this. In the scene I am looking for Anurag who goes after Prerna and I reach his room to find a photograph of Prerna. I get very upset and burn her picture and throw it out of the window. But, unfortunately the curtain caught fire and in no time the Basu mansion was on fire.”

Watch out for the uber stylish Mishka aka Ariah in Kasauti Zindagi Kay

The innocent and talented Ariah Agrawal is the new actress on the block, who is a scorching the glamour quotient with her oomph and svelte figure. Ariah who was last seen playing a sarcastic typical U.P. girl in the show Kya Haal Mr Panchal, has landed a jackpot with Ekta Kapoor’s Kasauti Zindagi Kay. Ariah is playing Anurag (Parth Samthaam’s) girlfriend in the show. The actress looks extremely stylish in her outfits and holds her own against established actresses on the show. Her role of an innocent and naive girl in love with a rich and handsome guy has figured her so well that audiences have warned up to her really well.

In the upcoming episodes, the actress will be seen as getting engaged to Anurag. For the sequence she was spotted in a red gown and she looked ravishing. Ask her about the look and she says, “I feel it is a great opportunity to play this role especially in Ekta Kapoor’s show. It is an important positive role and I get to speak well written dialogues and enact various shades. My red gown is a result of efforts of our stylists. I loved the outfit and it’s making me feel extremely desirable and glamorous.”

Ariah is waiting for her audience’s reaction on the upcoming episode. She says, “It is important to be confident and feel beautiful. Hopefully people will like my glam avatar.”

Another ‘Home’ run for Amol Parashar

Amol Parashar is proving himself to be internet’s favorite boy with his every new digital offering. After ‘It Happened In Hong Kong’ and ‘Ready 2 Mingle’ – his third show this year and the biggest one – ‘Home’, directed by Habib Faisal, has recently released on Ekta Kapoor’s streaming platform ALT Balaji.

The young talented actor, who has worked across Theatre, Ads, and Films – shot to sensational fame with a stupendous performance in his first web series TVF Tripling as the carefree DJ Chitvan. The young audience has been in love with his boyish charms and comic timing. With ‘Home’, Amol explores a more serious side of himself as an actor and is seen sharing screen space with veteran actors like Annu Kapoor, Parikshit Sahni, and Supriya Pilgaonkar. ‘Home’ focuses on a middle-class family that stands to lose their house because it has been deemed illegal by the state. Amol plays the young son who gives up on his own dreams and joins the family to save the house by fighting against the system.

The first 6 episodes of the show have been launched on the digital platform, and it has been getting great reviews from critics and audiences alike who couldn’t stop praising the show. While the whole cast is terrific in the show, Amol’s performance as Vansh Sethi is especially notable, as this is his first serious drama, and he stands solid ground in front of great co-actors like Annu Kapoor and Supriya Pilgaokar.

Amol is quite overwhelmed by the great response coming his way and the fact that he has proved his versatility as an actor working with stalwarts. Amol says “The response has been phenomenal. I have been getting a lot of messages about how people are loving the show, and my character Vansh. I got a chance to work with a great script and character and on top of that a terrific team of makers and co-actors, so I was always confident that we were onto something good. I am glad that the show has met all expectations and touched people’s hearts in this way. I am much more excited about the second half of the show, the next 6 episodes that are going to be released soon. The story will take more interesting turns and there is more focus on how Vansh and the young brigade decide to take matters in their own hands.”

Amol has been enjoying a golden run on the internet with all his shows hitting the mark with the audience and we are very excited to see more of him in ‘Home’ and his upcoming offerings.

Ekta Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali’s, Laila Majnu Is Shot In Reverse

Creative minds, Imtiaz Ali and Ekta Kapoor have definitely opted to tread on a completely unconventional route for their upcoming passion project- Laila Majnu. To begin with, they decided to cast fresh faces as opposed to established actors for this intense love story, and now it is learnt that the film is also shot in an interestingly unusual manner which truly states this film is for the crazies and by the crazies.

Laila Majnu, directed by Sajid Ali, is entirely shot in a backward order, i.e. the film’s shoot began with the last scene and proceeded forward in a reverse chronological order.

The film, which is a contemporary version of one of the most popular love stories of all times – Laila Majnu, depicts how consumed by the emotion of love ‘Kaes’ turns into a mad ‘Majnu’; and for this drastic transformation, it was crucial that the film is shot in this pattern.

“We have different looks and transitions in the film for Majnu. The story about him gradually losing his sanity in love and transcending into madness is the most significant part of our film and this is seen through his physical transformation for which he had to shed almost 12 kgs in a short span of 17 days along with  his beard and hair growing long for over 6 months. It was quite challenging because once we trimmed his beard and hair we couldn’t have taken the same shot again and we were very certain that we didn’t want to use artificial beard for his look as we wanted to keep it real and raw”.

‘What was interesting to see was his Journey from Majnu to looking like Kaes and shooting it in the backward pattern, I gave him just a weeks break and he came pumped up on set looking like the suave and charming Kaes’

Laila Majnu is presented by Imtiaz Ali, directed by Sajid Ali and produced by Balaji Motion Pictures and Preety Ali’s Pi films. The film is poised to release on September 7, 2018.

The film which is a funny take on groom abductions in Bihar went on floors recently in Lucknow.

The cast and crew faced a tough time managing the shoot owing to the heavy rains. Due to flooding roads, the team had to spend four to five hours traveling from the hotel to the shooting location.

While the hotel was located in central Lucknow, the shoot for the film took place on the outskirts of the town.

Despite the troubles, the cast and crew shot and completed the shoot for the day, spending hours just to reach the shooting location.
