Bringing back the horror genre on television, Ekta Kapoor has launched finite weekend series Qayamat Ki Raat on Star Plus. Starring Vivek Dahiya and Karishma Tanna in the lead roles, the show promises to give the audience a spine-chilling tale of a monster, who lusts for power and immortality. In an exclusive conversation with Indianexpress.com, Vivek spoke about his show, career aspirations and wife Divyanka Tripathi.
Vivek started off by sharing his reasons for taking up Qayamat Ki Raat. He said, “I really liked the story, and it gives me the opportunity to play a fun-loving guy, who is very similar to me in real life. He has recently come back from the US and has a very chilled out and laid-back attitude. But at the same time, he really values his family and culture. Also, it was Balaji and Star Plus, with whom I have had a great association. So, after playing so many intense roles, I was finally getting to do things I have been craving to for a long time. And if these reasons are not enough, well, it’s a very eerie and spooky show, something that is not there on TV currently.”
