The makers are playing out Asad and Zoya’s (Surbhi Jyoti) emotions with one of Salman Khan’s best songs
Incidentally, Karan Singh Grover, who plays Asad Ahmed Khan happens to be a big Salman Khan fan; and for the actor to emulate his song Tadap tadap ke… from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam is nothing less than a golden opportunity.
The entire Qubool Hai crew flew to Pushkar to get the right look and feel for the song. Karan looked gorgeous as ever in the black pathani suit, and Surbhi was beautiful too. When asked about his shoot experience and recreating the magic of Salman on the small screen, the dishy dude said, “Apart from Mr Bachchan, I’m a crazy fan of Salman Khan and I’m happy that I got a chance to recreate Tadap tadap ke… for my viewers on television. It was like dream come true! But at the same time, I must say it was a very difficult shoot. It took a toll on us. It was dry, the sun was blinding, the heat was unbearable and on top of that we had to emote the sorrow of separation in this sequence. Most of us suffered heat strokes during the schedule. I hope the viewers like and appreciate our efforts.” We definitely do, KSG!
“Both Karan and Surbhi have done a fabulous job in this song. No amount of heat deterred them from giving us perfect shots. Since the song was centred on Karan’s character (Asad), he had a very intense role to play in this particular sequence. He was continuously listening to the song on his iPod just to get his expressions right. I’m sure his watery bloodshot eyes and tears of anguish will win over his fans,” said producer Gul Khan.
