Actress Jannat Zubair Rahmani who played the role of Phulwa on the Colors show has now grown into a pretty teenager. She will be seen in a lead role on Colors' new show Tu Aashiqui. The promo of the same was unveiled on Twitter by the channel. The show is a teenage love story based on the film 'Aashiqui' and is in line with the legacy of Colors' hit romance, Meri Aashiqui Tumse Hi. Jannat and Ritik play the teenage couple and the show is basically about the rise and fall of their relationship. Jannat plays a middle -class girl called Pankti Sharma in the show while Ritik plays a musician Ahaan Dhanrajgir. Ritik character is inspired from Aditya Roy Kapur's in Aashiqui 2. Both of them have similar personalities.
Our source tell us that the basic story of 'Tu Aashiqi ' is inspired from the Hollywood film 'Endless Love' starring Brooke Shields. The show is modelled as a musical tragic love story. Mahesh Bhatt is involved in the writing and production of the show. 'Tu Aashiqi 'also marks the return of Gauri Pradhan. She was last seen as Radhika Madan's mother in Meri Aashiqi Tumse Hi two years back. She is playing the role of Jannat's mom and will have a glamorous look. Jannat made her debut as a child artiste in Dil Mil Gaye but got fame as Phulwa, a little girl growing up in Chambal. She played an innocent village girl in the show and was loved as a child actress. Later, Jannat did shows like Maharana Pratap, Mahakumbh, Code Red, Savdhaan India, Tujse Naraaz Nahi Zindagi and Meri Aaawz hi Pehchaan Hai.
Jannat has also done films like 'Love Ka The End ' with Shraddha Kapoor. She was last seen in Shani as Neelima but in a small cameo. This is her first show as an adult. The show is produced by Mahesh Bhatt and Gurudev Bhalla, who are behind Udaan and Naamkarann. It was Bhatt's decision to revisit Aashiqui 2 on TV. Colors opted for fresh faces for a youthful love story. Jannat and Ritik fit the bill perfectly. Colors is in a revamp mode and is now getting two love stories back to back. 'Ishq Mein Mar Jaavan ' and now 'Tu Aashiqi ' are all love stories cum family dramas which are a far cry to the current shows on air. Many existing shows like Sasural Simar Ka , Devanshi , Bhaagh Bhakti Bhaagh will soon go off air and make way for these shows that will go on air around Diwali .
