Mumbai, June 25, 2015 (ONI Team): Producer Saurabh Tewari’s upcoming show, Phir Bhi Naa Maane…Badtameez Dil a musical love story on Star Plus was initially offered to Vivian and Drashti.

The show that will replace Nisha Aur Uske Cousins was earlier conceptualized keeping the hit pair of Vivian DSena and Drashti Dhami in mind. A source says, “The two had share amazing chemistry and thus were considered to play leads on the show. Vivian who even lost weight was keen to do the role but lost out because he wasn’t convincing enough as a 17 year old. That’s when we settled for a new face. Drashti too auditioned for the role but since the lead male was new, the production house settled to rope in a new face to play the female lead.

Vivian said, “I was really keen on playing the part and had really liked the character of Abeer. But I wasn’t looking convincing enough for a 17 year old. I really liked the concept of the show as well but I guess Saurabh has made the right choice.”

The lead characters of Abeer and Meher were then signed by newbies Pearl V Puri and Asmita Sood.
