Celebrated television actors Sehban Azim and Niyati Fatnani are gearing up for their romantic drama Dear Ishq that that revolves around how two pole-apart personalities fall in love with each other.

Directed by Atif Khan, the series is produced by Yash Patnaik and Mamta Patnaik under the Beyond Dreams Entertainment Private Limited banner.

Talking about the story of the show, Atif said, "Dear Ishq is a classic tale of hate-to-love. It is a love story and I am sure that people will enjoy the ego clashes, fights and the process of understanding and love that will develop between the lead characters, Asmita and Abhimanyu."

While Sehban plays a highly-successful author who is arrogant, Niyati plays Asmita, a Bengali girl from Kolkata who is an award-winning literary editor and admirer of Premchand and Rabindranath Tagore.

Sharing insights into his character, Sehban - who was earlier seen in shows like Dill Mil Gayya, Thapki Pyaar Ki, Tujhse Hai Raabta - said, "He is the blue-eyed boy of Indian publishing, known for his best-selling romance novels. He’s drunk on his success…not at all a quintessential guy. He’s rather callous and egoistic."

The actor added that he found the character quite intriguing and challenging to play.

Niyati, known for being a part of the TV series Channa Mereya, said about her character, "She is a very today's woman, who is independent and voices her opinions. She can't tolerate injustice of any kind. This is why she openly disregards the new generation of writers and their stories, as she finds such stories very superficial."

It will be interesting to watch how these two people, who are opposites, fall in love and how their love story grows.

Dear Ishq will be available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar from January 26.
