Qubool Hai is changing gears. The romance is heating up with some lovely sequences as Asad Ahmed Khan (Karan Singh Grover) and Zoya Farooqui (Surbhi Jyoti) are all set for a wedding. In the Siddiqui house too, things are heating up with Badi Bi (Vidya Sinha) and Razia Siddiqui (Alka Kaushal) who are playing chess. Of course, there are more things in store for the viewers in the upcoming episodes and they will only get interesting.
We introduce to you the new Ayaan Ahmed Khan played by Vikrant Massey. We met him yesterday on his first day of shoot and the first thing that struck us was his smile. Pleasant and amiable, he was getting his bearings around the set and we saw him talking to Karan Singh Grover, the Production Controller, the Supervising Producer and the Director Lalit Mohan with ease. Dressed in white kurta and pajama, he looked like younger brother of Karan and we felt the new casting is spot on.
He of course, had a wait of few hours before his first shot was called at around 9pm. Gul Khan was shooting his introduction scene. Getting into the mode, the brief that Gul gave him was to walk with attitude and reference point was Tom Cruise in Top Gun walking towards his bike with a helmet held in his hand. Girls, be prepared to lose your heart to this puppy eyed, affable guy who will perhaps bring new facets to Ayaan Ahmed Khan. His equation with Karan Singh Grover and Surbhi Jyoti seemed instantaneous with them exchanging notes on the walk and the famous RK pose. Camaraderie has set in. Asad and Ayaan’s bond on-screen is all set to look good.
We wish him all the best as we welcome him aboard Qubool Hai. As soon as the first shot was canned, Vikrant was applauded and welcomed by the crew. Hopefully, the audience will resonate this as well. We spoke to Vikrant and asked him the reason to accept this role and what he had to tell us was that he has never played a character like Ayaan and in real he is totally unlike Ayaan. He is quiet and unassuming, immersed in his work in between shots too. He finds playing Ayaan a challenge and has seen a couple of episodes to get the character right as well. Of course, we will bring more about Vikrant as we get to know him better.
For now, don’t forget to watch his entry on Friday May 10 2013 in Qubool Hai at 9:30pm only on Zee TV.
