Ranjha Ranjha Kardi has become the obvious hit that audience have been waiting for. It happens very rarely that we get a drama that resonates with so many drama watching audience and has something unique to offer.
The story, production quality and acting is a class apart and it makes it the best drama airing at the moment. We got in touch with the director of the ultimate success Kashif Nisar, to find out his views on the drama being an immense success! The director has also been behind dramas like Sanata and O Rungreza!
Did you have any idea that the drama will become such a huge success, especially Bhola’s character?
I was actually scared regarding this project. I was concerned as to how will people perceive it, how will they take the unusual romance? I was not at all confident about this. I was very shaky when I was making this project.
The first reason that audiences love Ranjha Ranjha Kardi is obviously is its plot. It was new and when the story is new, characters are new, and new situations are developed. Faiza’s script was fresh, characters were relatable, be it Noori’s character, Bhola, Bhola’s mother or Noori’s mother, these characters seemed familiar.
Our audiences relate to the characters more than the plot itself, people fell in love with our male protagonist Bhola. I was confident that Imran will carry this character well, however how will audience receive it I had no idea. Fortunately his character became a favorite among audience.
You have previously worked with Faiza as well, do you feel a special connection with her stories?
I have been an admirer of Faiza’s work for a very long time. Faiza has the quality of taking you by surprise with her script. Her characters will also surprise you. Unless as a director you do not get that surprise while reading the script then it becomes very difficult to take the viewers by surprise!
While Noori’s character is amazing it hasn’t reached the similar level of popularity as Bhola. Why is it so?
What can I say about Iqra, she had an extremely thin line on which she was required to perform, and she has performed commendably. There were many layers to the character. It started off as a trash collecting girl from the slum, her journey from there on and all the transitions in her character, all the layers of her character have been carried out with immense maturity by her.
Bhola on the other hand has conquered all households and lives in their hearts.
Ranjha Ranjha Kardi is a unique story that highlights the grey areas of our society. Also it gives the audience a break from the typical love stories. Like Kashif said, the story is indeed super fresh and hence ruling hearts!
