Nakuul Mehta On Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2: 'Being A Part Of This Show Is A Big Responsibility To Shoulder On'
An actor, husband and a father, Nakuul Mehta has been the talk of the town for whatever he does. This time, he’s making headlines for the show Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2, for which he has reunited with his Pyaar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyaara Pyaara co-star Disha Parmar. Both will be seen playing the most loved on-screen character of Ram and Priya in this reboot.

Showcasing a mature love story that revolves around two individuals who are in their thirties and find a way to love one another after their marriage, Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 connects to the realities of today. The show will take the viewers on the journey and highlight the complexities and intricacies of what people go through in today’s day and age. spoke to Nakuul Mehta on his upcoming show and this is what he had to say:

The premiere date of Bade Achhe Lagte Hain 2 is out and viewers can’t keep calm. How excited are you?
 I'm delighted to be back on television and headlining a show which has been so loved and revered by so many including myself. Also, [I am] very excited to collaborate with Ekta Kapoor. It has been long pending and it finally gives me a chance to get a peek into her creative genius and hopefully learn along the way.

What is new in store for Ram and Priya? How will this season be different from the previous season?
I feel it's a different era now. We are doing this a decade after the first season came out. A lot has changed in terms of the world we live in and how relationships are made or lost in this digital era however a lot remains the same, which is human longing for love and companionship. I also feel with new actors, you will see a new flavour and at its core, it will remain the same story but a lot of it will be served differently.

Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar had successfully struck a chord with the audience, how challenging will it be to step into their shoes?
In my eyes, both of them are absolute rockstars of Indian television. Whilst it may seem daunting on the outside, personally for me it's a new character which I get to colour with my brush.

You’ve worked with Disha Parmar before. How has your bonding with her evolved over the years?
 I feel, having known her over nearly a decade now, there is an unsaid comfort, friendship and mutual respect. Whilst it has been nearly eight years since I last worked with her, our first day of shoot seemed so organic like we picked up from where we left. Now, both of us have of course grown personally and professionally in our lives yet it feels just like the old times. [I am] super pleased to share this equation with her.

 How has been your experience shooting for the show so far?
To be honest, it’s been brilliant and anxious at the same time. Brilliant, because I'm very excited about playing this new character and seeing how it comes to life, and anxious, because I understand the expectations the audience have from us and I hope I am able to do justice to the same. Needless to say, being a part of this show is a big responsibility to shoulder on.

Any message for your fans and viewers?
[I have] Just [a] huge [amount of] gratitude for all the love they have shared with me over the years and that they continue to share. I am who I am because of their love, admiration and support. Here’s hoping that I can make another memorable show for them and make all my supporters proud. [I am] Hoping for the best!
