Prit Kamani and Ahsaas Channa break the myth that a boy and a girl can never be friends in Aisa Vaisa Pyaar
Amid all negativity surrounding the world due to the ongoing pandemic, here's something to lighten the mood. The streaming giant Eros Now is releasing a new series Aisa Vaisa Pyaar, an anthology of four stories celebrating different shades of love and romance.
The OTT platform released the trailer of the series today. Starring Saqib Saleem, Nidhi Singh, Prit Kamani, Ahsaas Channa, Adah Sharma, Taaha Shah, Rajit Kapur and Sheeba Chaddha, the series explores different shades of love through four separate relationships of people from different age groups and their stories crisscrossing each other.
The stories include an old couple played by Rajit Kapur and Sheeba Chaddha where Rajat tries to relive the iconic SRK images, getting his wife to remember and revisit their romance while she suffers from Alzheimer's. The anthology will also break the myth that a boy and a girl can never be friends through a heartwarming tale of a platonic relationship played by Prit Kamani and Ahsaas Channa. The other stories include that of a couple who fight all the time, yet cannot live without each other and the one between a woman who recently lost her loved one and finds a company in a dog.
Speaking at the press conference held to launch the trailer, director Ashiish Patil said the show will be a breath of fresh air. "The series will present four different stories of love and romance of eight people who are at different stages of their relationships and belong to different age groups. It will make you smile and leave you with something to remember by," he said.
Talking about his experience, Saqib Saleem shared, “As soon as I heard the story, I wanted to be a part of this beautiful project. It was a lovely experience shooting with everyone! I truly hope that the viewers experience the same level of happiness as I did while shooting for it.” He further confessed that he wanted to replace Adah in her anthology series with the dog as he loves pets and tried convincing the director for the same. "I have a pet and always wanted to be a part of a story showing a beautiful bond between a human and his pet. I tried convincing Ashiish to write that role for a male character instead of a female's so that I could act in it," he said.
Adah had a blast shooting with Happy, the dog, so much that she doesn't remember the challenges they faced during the shoot. She said, "It was fun. I enjoy the company of animals more than humans. I find that more comfortable. I enjoyed the shoot. We just had to shoot according to Happy and his moods." Ashiish had to remind her of the challenges like several changes of clothes and waiting for Happy to do his part. "Shooting with animals and children are the most challenging parts. We had both a child and animal in Adah's story and usually, all the focus of the audience goes on to them but Adah knew her character well and she worked around navigating her bit around them," he added.
These sweet little tales, charming characters, both young and old, portray quirky, yet heart-warming sides of relationships and copious idiosyncrasies of love.
The series Aisa Vaisa Pyar will release on October 27 on Eros Now.
