OTT platforms ALTBalaji and ZEE5 are all set to entertain the audience with a new romance-drama ‘Bebaakee’ in July. Starring the likes of Kushal Tandon, Shiv Jyoti Rajput and Karan Jotwani in the lead roles, the web-series is all set to launch next month.
Bebaakee was initially planned to be released on 15th March but the sudden implementation of nationwide lockdown affected its release. The series will see Kushal Tandon and Karan Jotwani in the lead roles as brothers while Shiv Jyoti Rajput will play the female protagonist and paired opposite Kushal.
Speaking about the show, actor Kushal Tandon said, “I chose to be a part of Bebaakee since it gave me the chance to be part of an ALTBalaji show for the second time. What really stood out was Ekta Ma’am telling me that it’s a very crazy character with grey shades and one of the best-written roles in a fictional web series. I still remember that I was in Thailand undergoing my training in martial arts when she told me that you have to do this to which I agreed immediately. I can relate so well to my character because 75% of Sufiyaan is what Kushal is in real life. Sufiyaan’s one of the most exciting roles I’ve ever played and I am sure that my fans will absolutely love it.”
The story of Bebaakee is based on the lives of Kainaat Sahni and Sufiyaan Alazi, two contrasting characters with strong personalities. Kainaat is a simple and happy-go-lucky girl who has her goals in mind while the guy hails from a rich family. Their paths collide because of their shared love for journalism, leading to the pair feeling a high sense of chemistry between themselves.
The puzzle arises when the duo simply can’t seem to figure out if this vibe between them is going to be followed by love or hate. What follows next is an unforeseen chain of events that begins to shake Sufiyaan’s close-knit family and their business.
