Raj Babbar in Dil Bekaraar

The upcoming Disney+Hotstar series, Dil Bekaraar has been making many headlines recently for many reasons. Fans are excited to witness the reunion of Bollywood’s veteran actors like Raj Babbar, Padmini Kolhapure and Poonam Dhillon, in the period drama.

In a chat with Republic Media Network, actors Raj Babbar and Padmini opened up about the series and shared insights into working together. The duo wasn’t aware of the casting, and the team kept it as a surprise, as they were best friends who used to meet often.

The veteran actors believe that OTT platforms have helped in the recognition of exceptional talents of the current generation’s actors. According to them, it is also bringing the hard work of young actors to the forefront, irrespective of whatever medium they predominantly work on - television, film or web series.

When asked about Vicky Kaushal’s Sardar Udham, Babbar was all happy and said that he loved Vicky’s performance. Sharing a bit of nostalgia, the 69-year-old actor said he felt it more special since Vicky’s father Sham Kaushal had worked as an assistant director in his film, 21 years ago.

Further, he said that it was a moment of bliss since Vicky’s father and he had been together for a similar film, Shaheed Uddham Singh. He also remembered that a whole Jallianwala Bagh massacre scene, which is the soul of the film, was created by Sham Kaushal at that time. 

Meanwhile, Dil Bekaraar, helmed by Habib Faisal, is inspired by Anuja Chauhan’s bestselling novel Those Pricey Thakur Girls. It also stars Sahher Bambba, Akshay Oberoi, and Poonam Dhillon, among others. The series will premiere on Disney+Hotstar on November 26.
