Chandigarh, July 30, 2015 (News Team): All is fair in love and war, they say … but what if there is love and there is war at the same time? Such is the case of Twinkle, the leading lady of Zee TV's next primetime drama 'Tashn-e-Ishq', starting 10th August. Played by the beautiful actress Jasmin Bhasin, Twinkle is a typically adorable Punjabi kudi and a complete drama queen! Her love story is set against the vibrant backdrop of upscale, upwardly mobile Punjab where, at times, business rivalries and games of one-upmanship color the personal equations between entrepreneurs and industrialists. As luck would have it, Twinkle’s mother and that of her love interest Yuvraj (Played by Zain Imam) – both sharp-as-nails, ambitious and competitive businesswomen Anita Luthra and Leela Taneja, have scores to settle both personally and professionally. Will Twinkle's love endure the complications presented by her mother being at loggerheads with Yuvraj's?
The show is being produced by Essel Vision Production Ltd, the content engine of ZEEL. Essaying the roles of the two warring mothers Leela and Anita in ‘Tashn-e-Ishq’ are veteran actors Vaishanvi Mcdonald and Eva Grover respectively. The two stalwarts have played several meaty roles most convincingly in the course of their prolific careers on television and won millions of hearts with their marvelous performances.
The show has another interesting character called Preeto Ji which is being played by the popular actress Beena Banerjee. With a career span of over 40 years and more than 200 films in her kitty, the tremendously talented Beena Banerjee has won the nation's heart with her outstanding acting skills. Her character Preeto ji, who owns a local dairy in the city of Amritsar is a secret love interest of Twinkle’s (female lead) Nana Ji. Both Preeto Ji and Nana ji share a very cute bond. However, Preeto ji is a little embarrassed to fall in love in her 60s-70s. The adorable couple is trying to rekindle romance in their old age. Preeto who also stays in the same neighborhood often acts as a pacifier between the two rival families (Luthra & Taneja’s).
Visiting the city of Chandigarh today to promote her upcoming show, Beena Banerjee says, I’m essaying the character of Preeto Ji in the show. Being in the industry since a very long time, I have portrayed numerous roles but I found this one a little different and challenging. The show has a Punjabi backdrop with mixed elements of love, family drama, romance, emotions and comedy. We all are working really hard to make it a huge success. Since, it replaces Jodha Akbar, one of the biggest successes of Indian television; the expectations from the show are equally high. I’m hopeful that viewers will like our show which has numerous flavors to it."
