The small screen is turning out to be no less than the silver screen -- even in terms of its budget and sets! Phir Bhi Naa Maane ... Badtameez Dil, an upcoming show, will be shot on a set which has cost Rs 2.5 crore, says the producer.
The set for the musical love story is made with a lot of creative aspects in mind. It includes a music studio that forms the main backdrop for the show, an office exterior, and the houses of the two leads -- Meher played by Asmita Sood and Abeer played by debutant Pearl V Puri.
According to a source, the interiors of the set are top-notch and modern in their appeal. One wouldn't call it a regular set erected for a show as a lot of time has been spent on its formation.
"The show is based on a love story with a musical backdrop, as the leads work in a music channel on the show. Keeping this track in mind, a lot of money and time has been invested in building the set which is one of the most expensive sets for a fiction show as we have spent a whopping Rs 2.5 crore," Saurabh Tewari, producer of the show, said in a statement.
"My art director Sumit Mishra has done a fantabulous job in making the set look larger than life and fancy just as I had pictured it to be," he added.
Phir Bhi Naa Maane ... Badtameez Dil will be aired on Star Plus starting June 29.
