Speaking about his look, Akshay said, “For the Superhits episode, I am donning a barbaric and wicked look. The storyline is similar to the popular fairy tale Beauty and the Beast albeit with a twist. I really enjoyed essaying the character of a beast and experienced an array of emotions while portraying a ruthless and negative character on-screen. Moreover, I enjoyed depicting the entire transition and bringing it to life from Naren’s point of view. I hope the audience loves and appreciates me in this never seen before avatar.”


Will a stone-hearted beastly Naren be able to make Pooja fall in love with him? Will the curse ever wear out?
