Star Plus’ Ishqbaaaz made it to the news recently when the producer of the show Gul Khan had announced a spin off for Ishqbaaaz. The current run-time of 21 minutes was apparently not enough to portray the parallel stories of the three Oberoi brothers Shivaay (Nakuul Mehta), Omkara (Kunal Kulbhushan Jaisingh) and Rudra (Leenesh Mattoo).
And hence, the idea of a spin off was a welcome concept. The spin off, titled ‘Dil Boley Oberoi‘ will focus on the lives of the other two Oberoi brothers – Omkara and Rudra. But the duo will also be seen in Ishqbaaaz as well and Shivaay as well will make an appearance in Dil Bole Oberoi.
Leenesh Mattoo already has his female lead locked in place. Qubool Hai fame Nehalaxmi Iyer plays Soumya. Rudra and Soumya are shown to be married in the show. But sadly, the female lead opposite Kunal Jaisingh who plays Omkara, wasn’t finalized until a few days ago.
But the makers have finally locked down upon their heroine and it is none other than Aastha of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? … Ek Baar Phir! And now that their lead boys have their lead girls in place, Dil Bole Oberoi is all set to conquer new heights. The show will take the 10:30 pm timeslot that P.O.W. Bandhi Yudh Ke, will vacate soon.
The cast of the show has already started shooting for their parts. While we are already aware of the looks that Rudra, Omkara and Soumya will be sporting, everyone is inquisitive about how will the latest entrant to the gang look like.
Shrenu, who has joined the gang, will be seen sporting a simple salwar kameez clad look in the show. As compared to that of Shrenu’s look, Kunal will be seen sporting jodhpuri pants paired with a shirt and a horse-shoe jacket.
And if reports are to be believed, the spin off will go on air sometime around the Valentine’s week.
