Rithvik Dhanjani, who is best known for his television characters of Jay Khurana in Pyaar Kii Ye Ek Kahaani and Arjun in Pavitra Rishta, will be now be donning the role of a struggling Bollywood star in the upcoming episode of bindass – Yeh Hai Aashiqui. Not only does Rithvik enact the role of a struggling actor but is also plays the love interest of the already established and an eccentric superstar – Fiza, played by Mihika Verma.
Talking about his role, Rithvik says, “The first time I was asked to do Yeh Hai Aashiqui, I wasn’t very keen since it is an episodic show. But once I read the screenplay, I thought this is something that I really have to do! The screenplay was so catchy, my character Kabir was so strong and the whole story is so touching that it’s a great opportunity for an actor to actually play a character like that. I loved everything during the 4 days of shooting and there was so much involvement from everyone. We wanted to create something different out of the story and not a typical TV or a daily soap. We gave our heart and soul to the story so I’m really looking forward to how the episode turns out because I’m really excited as I’m stepping into something completely different which I haven’t for a very long time now.”
Once quoting about his dream Rithvik, wanted to be in films and do something so extra ordinary that it would stay with the audiences forever. With this role, we hope he’s got a little closer to his dream of being a film actor!
Along with Rithvik and Mihika, actress Pooja Gaur will also be seen in this episode that will be hosted by television and Bollywood actor Vikrant Massey.
