As per a report in The Indian Express, the upcoming show will be a mature romantic story, with a hint of comedy. The show is set to go on floors once the made lead is finalised and is expected to launch by end of 2018, a source told the publication.
Ekta Kapoor will be producing the show, which will be penned by author Jaya Misra.
A whirlwind of speculations arose when Ekta Kapoor commented on Divyanka Tripathi’s Instagram post. During the promotions of her new web series Home, Ekta had requested people to share photos of what home means to them.
My #Home is full of people who love me for who I am and I am not. @ektaravikapoor @altbalaji Home is where a person is in his most comfortable state. 'You all' let me be me, yet bring out the best in me! You don't question my love, you don't expect a drop in return... But things just happen between us organically. This selfless free-flow of love is #HomeForMe. Now, @vivekdahiya, @pankajbhatiaa and @sandiipsikcand you tell me what's #Home for you?
Divyanka had posted a collage, tagging Ekta on the same. Ekta thanked the actor, replying, “Thank U Love! Ishika Going To Be Chef.” Divyanka too replied stating, “@ektaravikapoor yes chef.”
Before Divyanka, Anita Hassanandani and Rithvik Dhanjani also made their web debut with Galti Se Mis-Tech. Mouni Roy, too, is set to feature in Ekta’s ambitious project, Noorjahan.
