Ekta Kapoor has revealed the lead cast of her much-awaited show Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2. The content czarina on Thursday unveiled the first promo of the show and introduced Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar as new Ram and Priya. The show is the reboot of Kapoor’s popular show Bade Acche Lagte Hain, which featured Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tiwari as central characters.
Sharing the promo of Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 on her Instagram handle, Ekta Kapoor wrote, “Here it is Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 promo and cast. Only on Sony Entertainment Television.”
In the promo, Nakuul Mehta and Disha Parmar are at a party where Ram (Mehta) asks Priya (Parmar) why she is not yet married even at the age of 32. Priya asks him the same question as to why he is not married at the age of 38. After breaking the ice, both seem set to begin a new chapter in their lives.
Mehta and Parmar have previously worked together on Star Plus’ successful show Pyar Ka Dard Hai Meetha Meetha Pyara Pyara. Their chemistry is definitely going to be the main highlight of Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 as we can already see some glances of it in the promo.
Speaking to Ekta Kapoor, Mehta said, “I am so looking forward to this. Bade Acche Lagte Hain is such an iconic show. Literally, I have grown up watching this. It’s my mother’s favourite show. When I told my mother about it, she told, “This you have to do and with perfection.”
Ekta asked Nakuul not to stress about stepping into the shoes of Ram in the reboot version. “Don’t take too much stress. Many people will say why are we making Bade Acche Lagte Hain again. I believe if you can make a story again, it is the biggest homage you can pay it. Even internationally, the makers reboot a good story every 5-10 years. I am so happy to have you as Ram because of your affable and very sweet style.”
Talking about Parmar, she said, “I am really happy and proud to be a part of this show, Season 2 of Bade Acche Lagte Hai. I think it will be the biggest achievement of what I have done till now. I am really grateful to you for letting me be a part of this. And, I am really excited and nervous.”
