Disney Bindass’ Yeh Hai Aashiqui will now open up a new chapter for its viewers with their new theme-based mini-series. And starting 15 June 2014, the show will go a notch higher, as they will focus on a mini-series ‘Disaster’. This four-week long mini-series will showcase stories of love that triumphs over not only unusual situations created by our inner conflicts or societal pressure but the stories that will occur during riots, war, floods or any natural disaster.
The first of the episodes will feature a heart-wrenching love tale of an Indian soldier falling in love with a Kashmiri girl amidst the tense atmosphere of war. The story will feature Manoj Chandila and new face, Pankhuri Awasthy.
Soldier Reyaansh Shikhawat, essayed by Manoj Chandila would have his task cut out as he will be in a warfront in Kashmir. His life would take a turn with him meeting a Kashmiri girl, Saima.

Yeh Hai Aashiqui, produced by BBC Productions will bring in popular TV actors for the other theme-based stories that will go on air soon.
When contacted, Manoj Chandila who was last seen in Sony Entertainment Television’s Desh Ki Beti… Nandini said, “This is the first time I have experimented on something like this. I am usually not in a mood to do episodics. But after shooting for this particular story of Yeh Hai Aashiqui, I would like to tell all that one should give Yeh Hai Aashiqui a try, as it has a lot to experiment as an actor. I had a great time shooting with BBC for this episodic. We shot under extreme heat as we had to shoot at outdoor locations.”
Manoj who had a special hair-do to shoot for the episodic further said, “Episodics are no doubt a rigorous exercise, but I am sure all our efforts will pay off. I am glad that I was the one who inaugurated this theme-based format in Yeh Hai Aashiqui. I am happy that I cut the ribbon (smiles). I want to personally thank Palki (Malhorta, Creative Producer); she took great care of us. I like her attitude towards life.”
When contacted, the Bangalore girl Pankhuri told us, “I am presently working in Bangalore. This will be my first appearance on TV. I am happy to have shot for this challenging role, that of a Kashmiri girl. I am looking at more projects too, and will take them if they are meaty enough.”
