MTV Fanaah will cater to the viewers' appetite to explore something new - Rithvik Dhanjani
How far will he go to protect the love of his life? Will he be able to protect her when he knows the demon resides in him? It is the battle of him against himself. What will he choose? These words are a mirror to the stark reality of his life. Vidhyut, they call him. But only he knows that his façade fails to cover the piercing truth that he is a beast and he is dangerous.
The heart throb of Indian television Rithvik Dhanjani has been roped in to play the intense character and is set to make many hearts flutter with his newest venture, MTV Fanaah. The popular actor shot to fame with Star One’s Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahaani, Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta, Nach Baliye, Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 and is now hosting the popular youth love story, Yeh Hai Aashiqui on Bindaas.
In a tête-à-tête with us, the sexy dude gets talking about the all new supernatural series MTV Fanaah and being a part of the star cast.
So what is MTV Fanaah all about?
“MTV Fanaah is an impossible love story and what makes it all the more intriguing is the supernatural element in it. It is the story woven around vampires, werewolves and humans. It is an extraordinary love story and it has been wonderfully scripted and packaged to cater to the viewer’s appetite to explore something new.”
Rithvik has been roped in to play the role of Vidhyut in the show. So what is it about Vidhyut that is strikingly different?
“Vidhyut is an intense character. He is a werewolf. His character has a number of shades and layers. He is in a state of turmoil and it is a battle that he is fighting against himself. He is dangerous but at the same time is troubled too.”
The actor was seen playing a werewolf in Star One’s Pyaar kii Yeh Ek Kahaani too.
“It is surprising. But I think it is the faith that the creative team and director have placed in me that made me take up the role of Vidhyut as a challenge. They believed I could do this and I will make sure I give my 100% to live up to it.” We wish you all the best Rithvik!
The star cast seems to be having a lot of fun on the sets with the amazing stories Rithvik shared with us.
“We haven’t shot much. But whatever was shot has been a joyride. We are great friends. We have a lot of masti on the sets and our nok-jhoks just seem to make work all the more fun. We have bruised ourselves, saved each other from injuries and have been working together as a team.”
MTV Fannah has been holding all its fans in high spirits, but will it be able to live up to the expectations of its viewers?
“I think MTV Fanaah has a wonderful storyline, it has real characters and the intensity and the level of relativity is high. It will break the stereotype that content on Indian TV is restricted or limited. The idea is to give the viewers a more real and newer perspective about the emerging innovative content Indian television can come up with. Since all of us have that kind of experience, it is our responsibility to pave a way for change”, said Rithvik.
The show has been compared to the popular international supernatural series, The Vampire Diaries and has been speculated to be an adaptation of the same.
A soft spoken Rithvik said, “We have been asked the same question over and over again. I don’t think MTV Fanaah resembles The Vampire Diaries. We aim to make a mark with our show and hope to create a new level. Since it is a youth oriented show, we hope people like and appreciate it.”
In a final message to all his fans and ardent viewers Rithvik said, “We have sincerely put in our heart and soul into MTV Fanaah. So please watch MTV Fanaah from 21st July, Monday to Friday 6pm onwards only on MTV. Keep loving us and supporting us like you always do.”
We wishes Rithvik good luck and success!
