Sriti Jha and Arjit Taneja play the leads in this collision of contrasting cultures and outlooks
Mumbai, 27th November 2023 - Zee TV, a pioneer in groundbreaking television content, is set to captivate audiences with its latest offering, Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye. The show, premiering on 27th November at 10 pm, is an impossible love story, weaving the journey of two contrasting characters - Amruta and Virat, portrayed by the immensely popular heartthrobs - Sriti Jha and Arjit Taneja respectively. It unfolds against the vibrant backdrop of Mumbai, where Amruta, a 29-year-old unmarried Marathi Mulgi and worldly-wise Punjabi Munda find their paths crossing in the most unexpected of ways. While she believes in the power of love and the sanctity of a meaningful life partnership that both sides need to constantly work on, he harbors a skeptical view on marriage after having burnt his fingers. He is anti-marriage, having concluded that most women are gold-diggers. Produced by Mukta Dhond, the show has a layered narrative, replete with twists and turns, making for an entertaining viewing experience.
The show delves into the intricacies of today’s love dynamics. This ideological clash sets the stage for an intriguing narrative encapsulated in the show’s one liner- ‘Ek ka pyaar mein yakeen atoot hai, toh dooja mane ishq hi jhoot hai’. With each episode, viewers can expect to be drawn deeper into the lives of Amruta and Virat, witnessing the evolution of their relationship against the canvas of their differentiated family backgrounds and the inevitable challenges that love must overcome.
Aparna Bhosle, Zee TV Business Head, said, "Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye presents an interesting take on modern love and relationship dynamics where our lead protagonists not only hail from diverse sociocultural backgrounds but represent diverse outlooks towards the institution of marriage. And when their contrasting worlds collide, viewers are in for a delightful love story."
Producer Mukta Dhond said "I am excited about our very first association with Zee TV, that too, with some of the finest actors we have on television at the moment. The story tries to depict the two most predominant outlooks the youth seems to have, today, about love and marriage. While half of them seem to be optimistic about finding a suitable match, there’s an equally large and growing number who have begun to question the institution or even view marriage in an unfavourable light. Writing Amruta and Virat, who represent these diverse schools of thought, has been a joy as they’re so culturally different with opposing mindsets, and still have one thing in common – they can go to any lengths for their families. Viewers will relate with both the characters and hopefully, find this unique love story intriguing!"
For the first time, the audience will get to see besties Sriti Jha and Arjit Taneja cast opposite each other. The show also boasts of an ensemble cast with Kishori Shahane Vij who will play the role of Babita Ahuja (Virat’s mother), an elitist Punjabi mother from South Delhi who is very proud of her social status and Hemangi Kavi as Bhavani Chitnis (Amruta’s mother) who is a true blue, middle-class, Maharashtrian woman for whom her family is everything!
Actress Sriti Jha said "Being a part of Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye is a thrilling experience and Zee TV has been my home for the longest time. Returning to the channel is homecoming and working opposite Arjit, will always be a delightful experience. We are not just co-stars but great friends, and I hope our friendship and chemistry translates onto screen. I must say that Arjit is an exemplary professional and with our relatable show, we hope to touch the hearts of the audience in a unique and unforgettable way. It's a journey filled with love, drama, and unexpected twists that will keep everyone hooked." Actor Arjit Taneja said, “It feels great to be back on Zee TV with a show as special as Kaise Mujhe Tum Mil Gaye. The added excitement of being cast opposite my best friend is like a cherry on top. When I heard Sriti has been locked for Amruta’s character, I guess that was it, I immediately said yes too. Amruta's optimism clashes with Virat's wariness towards marriage and this paves the way for a rollercoaster of emotions. We can’t wait for audiences to see the show!”
