Neena Gupta returns to Star Plus with college romance series

MUMBAI: After venturing into untested waters with a religious band on Sundays, Star Plus is now ready with a weekly college romance and a weekday kids' fantasy serial to begin telecast early next month.

Neena Gupta, whose last offering on Star, Saans, achieved near cult status, is back on the channel with Kyun Hota Hay Pyarr, a show around three collegians and their quest for love. Slotted in the Thursdays 8 pm time band in place of Kundali, KHHP deals with the lives of small town girl Nikki, college heartthrob Adi and flamboyant Ash as they make their way through crushes and heartbreaks on campus. According to Gupta, Kyun Hota Hai Pyarrr, is for the youth, by the youth and of the youth. My entire cast and crew - actors, director, scriptwriter - are very young. To get the real feel of this generation, of today's youth, I needed to work with this young team."
