You would never have guessed this one…
Ekta Kapoor is out with her latest offering, Pyaar Ko Ho Jaane Do that stars Mona Singh and Iqbal Khan in lead roles. The show which airs on Sony TV is the story of a very well-to-do, modern Punjabi family, the Hoodas and the backbone of this loving family is Ishaan (Iqbal) and his wife Preet (Mona). Though Ishaan is Mr Hooda’s brother’s son, he (Mr Hooda) and his wife accepted Ishaan with open arms when the latter lost his entire family, including his wife, in a tragedy. Ishaan then went on to marry Preet, who too lost her family. Ishaan is the perfect son, the best brother, a doting father and an excellent friend. But underneath his perfect facade, lies a terrible truth that Ishaan has been hiding from everyone, the truth about his real identity.
So we know that Ishaan has constantly been in touch with a girl which lead to the belief that he has an extra marital affair. The truth, however, is much further away from that. Ishaan, in fact, is a spy from a neighbouring country, Rizwaan. Shocked? So were we when Ekta made the big revelation at a recent press con.
We are guessing that the real Ishaan would have died, like the rest of his family in the same tragedy. Given that Mr Hooda had not seen his brother or his family in years because of a clash the two had, there was no way they would have known what their nephew looked like. Using this too their advantage, the enemy IA sent their spy posing as Ishaan.
How the family and Preet come to terms with this harsh reality, forms the rest of the story.
