Barun Sobti who played the role of arrogant, spoilt, rich tycoon Arnav Singh Raizada to perfection in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, is returning to television after a gap of around three years. A finite series of 26 episodes, Satya Ki Kiran, promises to be a fast-paced romantic thriller, offering a fresh story in every episode. The actor, in an exclusive telephonic conversation with India Today Online talks about his new finite series Satya Ki Kiran and more.
Satya Ki Kiran, to be aired on Zee TV, is set in Delhi and Barun will play the lead role of a 27-year-old cop called Satya, who’s son of a millionaire. He loses his father in mysterious circumstances and now his only motive is to uncover the mystery of his father’s death.
“I am playing a Delhi cop and the show is kind of a crossover between romantic and thriller. The story of a boy and a girl grows old to 26 episodes.Every episode in itself is going to be a different change. As we progress in the story, every situation, every case leads to a bigger story, and it culminates in the absolute end.”
The role of female lead Kiran Jayate will be played by Pavitra Rishta star Shivani Tomar. The two lead characters will fall in love in the course of unravelling the murder mystery.
Barun Sobti is facing the camera for a TV soap, after a gap of three years, but he feels nothing has changed for him. “No, it doesn’t feel any different to be shooting for a TV soap again. What do I have to do in it, apart from my own job? It’s not very complex. It’s just a comprehension of human psychology. I have already shot for the first episode with Jijy Philip and it looks really nice. Now, we have to see how it goes down with the audience.”
