Star Plus to replace ‘Tamanna’ with ‘Ishqbaaaz’ in 10 pm slot
MUMBAI: Hindi GEC Star Plus is launching a new show ‘Ishqbaaaz’ in the 10 pm slot from 27 June as its existing finite series ‘Tamanna’ comes to an end on 26 June.
The new show is produced by Gul Khan under her banner4 Lions Films. Like Star Plus’ other shows, ‘Ishqbaaaz’ will air from Monday-Sunday.
‘Ishqbaaz’ is the story of Oberoi brothers, Omkara, Rudra and Shivaay. Set in the backdrop of Mumbai, the Oberois are the modern day equivalent of Indian royalty who reek power and glamour but it is the bond between the current generation Oberoi brothers that is at the heart of the story of ‘Ishqbaaaz’.
Shivaay Oberoi (played by Nakuul Mehta) lets his mind rule over his heart. A cut throat businessman for whom business and family lineage means everything, Shivaay strives to be the most powerful man in the world wearing his arrogance and pride on his sleeve. One can come face to face with his humane side only when he is with his siblings.
Omkara Oberoi (played by Kunal Jaisingh) is an artist in his entirety and equally charismatic as his elder brother. He is caustic and blunt in his approach, a trait most artists possess. But at the same time he is chivalrous and compassionate to people around him. His love for his brothers’ remains unconditional despite some difference of opinion he may have with the older one.
Rudra Oberoi (played by Leenesh Mattoo) is the youngest, most handsome and the ultimate modern day metrosexual male who makes his way to a woman’s heart with his charming looks and his penchant for cooking. Vanity, thy name is Rudra, is a line that is written just for him. His wandering ways at times do land him in trouble but then his brothers always come to his rescue.
Sharing his thoughts on the new show, Star Plus spokesperson said, “Star Plus has always presented and represented stories which project Nayi soch. Contrary to the prevailing belief of youngsters being indifferent to family ties, in our latest offering Ishqbaaaz, the younger generation has been shown as the ones who value family bonds and relationships and are instrumental in keeping the family united. Ishqbaaaz is our endeavor to continue to showcase content that will live up to what we promised our viewers Rishta Wahi Soch Nayi.”
