The Business Head of Sony SAB, Neeraj Vyas and the main cast of the serial along with its producers Shashi and Sumeet Mittal of Shashi Sumeet Productions addressed a media conference on Thursday in Ahmedabad.
Neeraj Vyas explained the Sony SAB’s idea of entertainment and engaging with its audience. He told media persons “at Sony SAB, we are single-mindedly focused on telling stories that resonate with our viewers. We don’t just want people to watch our shows, we want them to form an emotional connect with these stories. There have been many love stories, but not one that explores a different dimension altogether – that of time, bringing a whole new perspective to the genre”.
Vyas informed that two new shows are planned by us for near future, one is Balveer 3-(new season) and the other one being “Vanshaj”. Balveer will set an example of graphics and vfx effects of one of its kind on television while ‘Vanshaj’ revolves around a business family with all its complexities of relations and business dealings enveloping it. A comedy show’s script is underway but only if it meets our criterion, we will go ahead with it.”
Lead actor of ‘Dhruv Tara’ Ishaan Dhawan who is playing ‘Dhruv’ when asked what is the love quotient of 17th century and 21st century that has been portrayed by him in the show, Ishaan said “emotions do not change with passing of time, in fact a mother’s love, husband wife’s love and children’s with parents etc never changes it is only the perspective which changes with the time.” When asked how did he prepare for the role, Ishaan said “I am trying to give my best and want to prove myself worthy of the trust posed into me by my producers.”
“Playing Dhruv has been an incredible journey for me. My character is someone who hasn’t been in love yet, but through his interaction with Tara, he learns to give love a chance. It’s a role that has truly touched my heart and I am certain once the viewers watch it, they will connect with the character instantly. I am extremely thankful to Sony SAB for creating such a wonderful show with such a different concept, which truly makes it stand out from the rest.”
Riya Sharma the lead female character of the show is the actor of the director when she says “I want to be just a clay and it is upto my director and producer to mold me according to the character I am playing. I also give my personal touch of being Riya also in it”.
Riya added, “Playing Tara helped me understand the beauty of what life had to offer in the 17th century. The love story itself is so pure, so innocent that I know the viewers will fall in love with Dhruv and Tara too. There’s something absolutely magical about the show and I am certain once viewers watch the show, they will feel its magic weaving it’s spell on them too.”
