What’s the craziest love story you’ve heard? Love happens to most of us, unplanned and unexpected, but gives us a special someone to cherish for a lifetime. Love on the run. On a guitar strum. At a protest. With a house guest. Cupid strikes in unexpected ways as captured in Netflix’s upcoming series – Feels like Ishq – an anthology of six stories about the kindling of young love which will make you go AWWW.
Feels Like Ishq stars young, enthusiastic, and supremely talented actors, and heartthrobs of today, Radhika Madan, Amol Parashar, Kajol Chug, Mihir Ahuja, Simran Jehani, Rohit Saraf, Saba Azad, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya, Zayn Khan, Neeraj Madhav, Tanya Maniktala, and Skand Thakur in engaging roles playing fun-loving characters.
Talking about his story, ‘Save The Da(y)te’, Director Ruchir Arun said, “Love can happen anywhere, anytime in today’s day and age. Save The Da(y)te is one such story where two completely opposite individuals bump into each other at a wedding and spend ample amounts of time together, just to realize there might be something more. Both Radhika Madan and Amol Parashar are energetic and entertaining performers which helped us in bringing this relatable story to life”
Giving her take on love through this beautifully curated story, ‘Quaranteen Crush’, Director Tahira Kashyap Khurrana shares, “Quaranteen Crush is a subtle love story that blooms while the world is experiencing a global pandemic. It is a simple story that speaks volumes about care, innocence, and friendship. Kajol Chugh and Mihir Ahuja essay the roles of Nimmi and Maninder with ease, and their camaraderie ensures that the audience’s mood stays light.”
“Star Host is a simple story about the serendipity of the universe that can bring two complete strangers together and creates wonders in unexpected ways. We tried to bring in the elements of scenic views and nature to weave a story around our protagonists Aditya and Tara played by Rohit Saraf and Simran Jehani. Both have brought these characters to life with amazing performances that will make the audience remember what Ishq feels like,” added director Anand Tiwari.
Shedding light on his episode, ‘She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not’, Director Danish Aslam expresses, “This was one of those stories that pretty much wrote itself once the characters were fleshed out. And Saba & Sanjeeta looked like they’d strolled straight out of the pages into the frame. They’re both equal parts mad and poignant, which is pretty much what love is most of the time”.
The anthology brings together stories of people from different walks of life and takes them on a heart-warming journey of love. Directed by Ruchir Arun, Tahira Kashyap Khurrana, Anand Tiwari, Danish Aslam, Jaydeep Sarkar, Sachin Kundalkar, and Devrath Sagar, in collaboration with Mutant Films and Awesomeness TV, the series is set to hit on 23rd July 2021, on Netflix.
