During the launch of the serial, Mahesh Bhatt was all praises for the child actor
Mahesh Bhatt has never shied away from revealing his personal life. Many of his films like Aashiqui, Arth, Woh Lamhe, Hamari Adhuri Kahaani have been based on certain facets of his life. However, the best of the lot has been Zakhm, which won two National awards, including Best Actor award for Ajay Devgn (his first).
Now he is making a serial, Naamkarann, which will be similar to his Zakhm. NaamKaran replaces Diya Aur Baati Hum on Star Plus. As far as the plot goes, it has a small change. Unlike the film, the story will be told from the perspective of a girl. It is not surprising as female leads are more preferred by channels. Actress Arsheen has been roped in to play the main protagonist, Avni.
During the launch of the serial, Mahesh Bhatt was all praises for the child actor, and he even compared her performance to that of Alia Bhatt in Udta Punjab.
Speaking to media, he said, "She is an outstanding child artist and I have not seen anyone like her in my entire career. Like Alia dazzled me in Udta Punjab, similarly this girl dazzled me. I have told Alia I am very impressed with this child. I don't usually tell Alia this. I am sure even she will be similarly awestruck."
