Last evening, Star Plus launched a 23-feet installation of Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2 at Carter Road. The larger-than-life statue, which was inaugurated by Esha Deol and Bharat Takhtani, has two lovers in the show’s iconic pose. The love saga’s producer, Ekta Kapoor, took to Instagram to share a picture and video from the event. One of the captions read, “23 feet installations all over india in ten cities ! @starplus ur promotions r d pressure that’s scaring me.” During the event we caught up with Esha and Bharat. Excerpts:
Esha, what came to mind when you were approached to unveil the statue?
I was really happy to know that we are going to be unveiling the statue. This pose along with the red dupatta is a symbolic pose of love and the makers chose the perfect spot for the installation. Until now, people came here to click pictures of Salman Khan and Shah Rukh Khan’s house, now they will click photographs of this statue. I hope, going ahead, lovers make complete use of this installation and propose here.
Have you seen the original Kasautii Zindagii Kay?
Bharat: Yes, that time we didn’t have mobile phones. When I used to come back home from school, the only thing that would be running on TV was either Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii or Kasautii Zindagii Kay. They were spicy shows, I must say especially Komolika’s character (laughs).
Esha: I remember when I started my career, this serial has just come out. It was the talk of town and I managed to watch it.
Do you believe in love?
Bharat: Of course we do. I love her.
Esha: Absolutely, we were childhood sweethearts who later got married.
