MUMBAI: As goes the famous saying, “Love Thy Neighbour”, Star Plus and Ekta Kapoor have decided to bring this to the small screen. The duo is coming up with a relatable, urban story of the two neighbours in Ye Hai Mohobbatein.


An emotional story of love and loss is slated for telecast starting 3 December. The new series will be aired every Monday - Friday at 11.00 p.m. The show marks the return of popular TV stars Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel in lead roles.


So what is the show all about? Well! Expect the Iyers and the Bhallas, the two neighbours in Delhi, fighting over every issue. If this wasn’t enough, things will get more interesting for the families as the show progresses.


The Iyers' dentist daughter Ishita Iyer and the Bhallas' businessman son Raman Bhalla find themselves getting bound by an unusual bond. Not every relationship has a name and theirs is defined by Raman’s adorable daughter Ruhi with whom Ishita develops a strong attachment. This thus leads to Ishita getting close to the man – Raman who she dislikes the most.


“We are delighted to partner with Ekta once again for Ye Hai Mohabbatein. The story she has brought to us is urban and contemporary. This love story begins after a marriage gets over. It explores the theme of a second chance in love. With well etched characters and a strong urban narrative, the show deals with day-to-day issues faced by modern couples. We are positive that our metro audiences will see a connect with Ishita and Raman and follow their story,” says Star Plus general manager Gaurav Banerjee.


 Balaji Telefilms joint managing director and creative director Ekta Kapoor opines: "My association with Star TV goes back a long way. We have together celebrated many successes and created iconic characters through generations. I look forward to working with them closely on this show and I am sure that the viewers will accept Ishita and Raman into their families."


The series also brings together veteran artists like Neena Kulkarni, Abhay Bhargav, Kaushal Kapoor, Shenaz Rizwan and Ruhanika Dhawan in pivotal characters.
