Ekta Kapoor and Balaji Telefilms is once again in the limelight with the launch of ‘Khwaish’. Starting Monday, July 16th at 7.30 pm, this new love story is about a young girl Afreen(Priya Ashok Batija) and her dreams. Are you all wondering where you have seen this girl? Well, Priya made her debut with Ekta’s Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi where she played the role of KT’s friend.

Khwaish is also about Kabir, a dashing young man who returns home after seven years of living abroad,played by Sumeet Sachdev,. Being the eldest son of the Shahnawaz family, Kabir is very responsible, simple and down-to-earth. Anju Mahendru plays Sumeet’s mother in the serial while the good-looking model from Karachi, Yasir Shah plays Kabir’s brother. The story starts with Afreen and Kabir falling in love and getting married. Life is a ‘Bed of Roses’ for the young couple till an ugly turn of events shatters Afreen’s life when she has to marry Kabir’s younger brother Azaan!! What is the reason behind this emotional decision? All these answers will be unfolded on 16th July when it airs on Sony TV at 7.30 pm

Our Telly Buzz Reporter had a nice time interacting with the stars and the creatives in the Launch Party organised.
 
Sumeet Sachdev on his role, “Speaking Urdu was a real challenge to me. Gautam was a subtle grownup man, who is not yet matured for his age. Khawish is something totally different, all do a fabulous job helping me out.."

The Creative Director Nivedita Basu quotes, “This serial is about a ‘Today’s Girl’. We did not have much to work on Cultures as many things are similar. An Indian working woman is the same as a working woman there. The only difference is the language and the ambience. The time slot of 7.30pm was chosen so that we could reach the smaller towns where people are at home by this time.” When asked about Iqbal Khan not being a part of this project, Nivedita was quick to answer, “Sumeet has not replaced Iqbal Khan. Iqbal’s role is now given to a Pakistani Actor as we wanted Pakistani flavour in the show.”
 
Pakistani Fans are euphoric in seeing their local hero in Balaji serial. “All have now started asking, as to why we did not come up with such a venture long back.. So we are just keeping our fingers crossed till the TRPs show us the result” says Nivedita

Ekta Kapoor when asked about her take on ‘Khwaish’ says, “Pakistan does not have much of daily soaps. We hired consultants to make sure we are going on the right path. We even had voice trainers to improvise on the dialogue delivery. I didn't want a complete Urdu show, where the girl wears a burkha even when she's at home. Yes, while going to the Darga she will. We are trying to keep this show very real and not exaggerate in any way. I am free from all the allegiations that I only do Hindu shows. To top it all, Sumeet Sachdev is such a big Hit in Pakistan. He has a huge fan following there.. Unfortunately we cannot shoot in Pakistan, but I hope we have a day when our soaps can shoot there, and their soaps can shoot here.”

Ekta Kapoor is known to break new grounds in Indian Television… Will Khwaish fulfill all her Dreams and open new platform for Pakistani actors in Indian small screen? As for Ekta it is TRP that will be the decisive factor!!
Watch Khwaish on Sony Entertainment Television starting July 16th, Monday-Thursday at 7.30 pm.
