Highlight Story

Soap queen Ekta Kapoor’s prime production,

Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahaani

, loosely inspired by the

Twilight

franchise, has been delayed. The show, toplining Sukirti Khandpal, Vivian D’Sena, Vikaas Goopta and Priya Wal , was earlier expected to air on Star One in June.



Earlier titled

Fanaa

, it was pushed ahead to August 23 and then to September 20 for various reasons. One of them, it’s said, was Kapoor’s dissatisfaction with the script. The producer apparently fired 25 writers from her team and decided to write it on her own.



Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahaani

was expected to replace

Jaane Pehchane Se Yeh Ajnabi

. It is now expected to go on air from October 11. It’s said that Balaji Telefilms didn’t have an episode bank for the dates. When asked, Kapoor confirms the delay and says, “The rains played havoc. We’ve been working on the show all along but the shoots continuously got disrupted because of the monsoons. Work is on in full swing now and we should be on air hopefully next month.”



Ekta

The show’s shooting started a month and a half ago, with various workshops to prepare the artistes for their respective characters. The promos of

Pyaar Ki Yeh Ek Kahani

have been on air for the last four weeks. “

Fanaa

isn’t

Twilight

just because it features vampires and involves campus romance,” argues Goopta, who plays one of the male leads of the show and was once on the creative team of Balaji Telefilms. He is paired with Wal and D’Sena with Khandpal.
