Zee TV Launches Qubool Hai!

New York, NY: With a view to breaking all stereotypes about the Muslim community, ZEE TV launched its new social drama, ‘Qubool Hai’, a mixture of drama and romance on 29th October 10p ET|7p PT. ZEE strengthens its evening line up with Afsar Bitiya, now airing at 6:30p ET leading up to Primetime biggies like Rab Se Sohna Isshq; Pavitra Rishta, Qubool Hai and Punarvivaah.

The show explores the lives of three individuals, Zoya, Ayan and Asad who are starkly different from each other and yet their lives are beautifully entwined by the threads of destiny. Zoya is a modern, vibrant, new- age girl who questions stereotypes. She is a girl who listens to all but at the end of the day does what her heart says. She knows and respects her culture but does not blindly follow rituals. Ayan, is a happy-go-lucky boy without a care in the world. He falls for every pretty face that passes by but commits to none. And the perfectionist, Asad who has renounced love from his life, only wants to become successful.

Viewers eagerly awaited the launch of Qubool Hai as it marked the return of the small screen’s most wanted heartthrob, the ladies man, Karan Singh Grover in the lead role as Asad. The show also introduced two newcomers, the vivacious Surbhi Jyoti as the female lead - Zoya and Rishabh Sinha, in the parallel lead as Ayan. Surbhi is not new to the entertainment industry despite Qubool Hai being her debut on television. A spunky Punjabi kudi from Jalandhar, she is a very popular face in Punjab. With a background in theatre, Surbhi has also played the lead roles in a superhit Punjabi movie, ‘Raula Pai Gaya’ and a soap, ‘Kach diyan Wangan’ on Alpha ETC Punjabi. Rishabh makes his debut in acting after his initial brush with being in the limelight on MTV Splitsvilla earlier this year.

“This show is a life-changing experience for me as I aim to make Zoya an epitome for young Muslim women who do not see them being represented positively on the small screen…I will showcase a more universal approach where women and minorities are regarded as equal and Zoya represents it!” she adds.

Watch out for Zoya, a progressive, uninhibited, modern and gutsy girl firebrand - Kya Zoya aapko qubool hai? To know more about Zoya and her relationship with Ayan and Asad, tune in Sun - Thu at 10p ET| 7p PT only on ZEE TV!
