A story of love and betrayal-COLORS brings new show Bepannaah

After the success of its two love stories Tu Aashiquii and Ishq Mein Marjawan, COLORS will now add a new shade of love with its latest offering— Bepannaah.

The show is a romantic drama that tells the tale of two strangers brought together by a mysterious accident that shakes the very roots of their foundation.

Once bitten, twice shy, they say. For Aditya and Zoya, love betrayed them the first time around, will they learn to fall in love again?

The show is an amalgamation of romance, drama and mystery, featuring some of the most loved faces of Indian television like Jennifer Winget as Zoya, Harshad Chopda as Aditya, Sehban Azim as Yash (Zoya’s husband) and Namita Dubey essaying the role of Pooja (Aditya’s wife).

Produced by Cinevistaas, Bepannaah will premiere on March 19, 2018 and will air every Monday to Friday at 9pm.

Talking about the show, Manisha Sharma, Programming Head, COLORS, said, “Bepannaah is a story about love and betrayal that changes two peoples’ lives forever. The need to know what happened that night is what will keep our main protagonists and story moving very interestingly. We hope the chemistry between our lead characters and the twist that surrounds them will keep the viewers hooked on to the show.”

Sunil Mehta from ‎Cinevistaas Ltd., added, “Bepannaah comes across as a breath of fresh air that differentiates it from the common denominator of storytelling that the audience has been catered and made used to on prime time! A path breaker that will hopefully set trends!!!”

Speaking about being a part of the anticipated show, Jennifer Winget, who plays Zoya, said, “The first time I heard the narration for the show, I had tears in my eyes. A show like Bepannaah comes your way rarely and I am ecstatic to be a part of it. My character Zoya is a sweet, polite young lady who has always led a very sheltered life and has always been dependent on the men in her life. How her life turns upside down in a flash is baffling to say the least. I’m having a blast shooting with Harshad and Sehban. I’m sure viewers will love our chemistry.”

Harshad Chopda, who essays the character of Aditya, said, “I am returning to television after a hiatus and I was consciously waiting to pick the right story. Bepannaah’s core concept and my director Aniruddha sir and DOP Deepak sir were the major influencers in this case. Jennifer and I hit off as soon as we met. I’m sure it will be exciting for the audience to see us together onscreen.”

Sehban Azim, who plays Zoya’s husband Yash on the show, said, “Bepannaah is a show that has been in the making for a while now. The detailing for every character-be it the look, the dialogues, the treatment – all of it has been given close attention to and its brilliance shows in every scene we do. I cannot thank the channel and the creators of the show enough for making me a part of this stunning piece of fiction”.

Namita Dubey, who plays Aditya’s wife Pooja, said, “We are working with the best team on television today – both in front of the camera and behind it. The audience’s response to the promo has been great and I hope and pray that it gets better and bigger as the show progresses.
