Madhurima Tuli and Vishal Aaditya Singh talk about Chandrakanta and the pressure to do well!

Read on to know...


Colors is all set to come up with it's much awaited show, Ek Mayavi Prem Gaatha - Chandrakanta. The show will see Madhurima Tuli as the female lead, while Vishal Aaditya Singh will be the male lead. Starring along with the duo will be Shilpa Saklani Agnihotri and Urvashi Dholakia.

The show will be seen replacing Naagin 2, and will go on air on the 24th of this month. We got in touch with Madhurima and Vishal, and here's what they had to say about the show. 

Tell us about the Ek Mayavi Prem Gaatha - Chandrakanta!

Madhurima: Well, I would say that the show is a fantasy world. Yes, Chandrakanta has come earlier as well, but we are trying to do something different this time. And of course, it's a Balaji Telefilms' show, so it's bound to bring something new. We are hoping the audience likes it and it's magic.

It's a mythological show. How did you guys prepare yourself?

Vishal: Well, we did quite a few things. For starters, we had to learn sword fighting, horse riding, and do some script reading sessions in order to get the dialect and talking style. Also, (laughs) I've put lenses. After all, it isn't a daily soap, so yeah, that's what we did.

Madhurima: Yes, that's all that we've done. We learned sword fighting for 7-8 days and had script reading sessions. 

Madhurima, you were shortlisted from 60 actresses, so how does it feel?

Well, I didn't really know about that, but now that I do, it feels great. As it is, I am very thankful to Ekta (Kapoor), so I really hope that I live upto her expectations because she's believed in me.

Chandrakanta is already on air on Life OK and comparisons are bound to happen. What do you have to say about that?

Madhurima: Well, it is a challenge for us of course. One Chandrakanta is already on air, and we are coming up with the other. So, we are hoping for the best. We are trying our best obviously and we hope we make it big.

Vishal: Yes of course, comparisons are going to happen, but there's no harm in that. All I believe in is doing my work with conviction.

Your show will be replacing Naagin 2, which, is a TRP topper. What do you have to say about it?

Madhurima: I can't work under pressure. Colors is replacing Naagin 2 with our show, so I am sure they must have thought something. The two shows are completely different.  While the former is a revenge love story, ours is a magical fantasy and I am hoping it does well and is received well.

Vishal: Well, we are working with all that we can. If not Naagin 2, it would have taken the time slot of some other show. So, it does not really affect us much, all we know is to do our best and let the audience decide.

Lastly, your message to the fans?

Madhurima: Well, we have really worked hard and we hope you like it. Watch us on Saturday - Sunday from 24th June, 8pm.

Vishal: It's going to be a treat for the audience. The way we are presenting the story and the VFX. And of course, with the mastermind behind it all, Ekta Kapoor, one can expect the best. We are sure nothing has been shown in this way.
