In a candid interview to TOI, Nakuul Mehta aka Shivaay opened up about
his chemistry with his co-star Surbhi aka Anika.
He told, "I agree that we have a crackling chemistry on screen.
How sad would it be if it weren't for that since the show is called
'Ishqbaaaz'? It also helps that my last show was a romantic saga
(Pyaar Ka Dard), so by now, romance comes easy to me. Having said
that, Surbhi is a delight to work with."
Nakuul began his career with films, but rose to fame with his TV
show, Pyaar Ka Dadrd Hai. When quized if he would go back to films,
the actor said, "I am a leading star on Indian TV and take that
position of privilege with a lot of responsibility. Hard work has
got me here and I'm fully committed to television."
Furthermore, "TV stars are often asking about not making it in
movies but we don't question a movie star about not succeeding on
TV. It is not easy to get a show in the prime time slot."
