Bade Achche Lagte Hain… brings the two television stars together for the first time
All you women out there, take heart. Ekta Kapoor is now attempting to venture out of the saas-bahu zone. Her latest offering – Bade Achche Lagte Hain… Yeh Dharti, Yeh Nadiyan, Yeh Raina Aur Tum – stars her favourite actor Ram Kapoor alongside Sakshi Tanwar. That’s right – two of the biggest stars on the small screen will be starring opposite each other in what is being touted as a mature love saga. We like that the two actors, for once, are playing their age – not young lovers, and definitely not parents of really old kids. Anyway, since women are the target audience, the show has Sakshi playing Priya Sharma, a romantic at heart, who thinks that since she is in her mid-thirties, she is no longer ‘of marriageable age’. She is content being single. Ram plays a businessman, who is imaginatively called – you guessed it – Ram Kapoor! Busy handling the business since his father’s death, Ram believes that now that he is in his mid-forties, the time for marriage has passed him by. Obviously, these two will find love in each other. We don’t mind the cliché, as long as the obstacles they face do not include scheming sisters- and mothers-in-law. Tired of that, aren’t we? Let’s hope, this promising story will not degenerate into another Virani saas-bahu saga.
