Popular TV actor Aman Verma is very excited about working in a joint India-Pakistan venture and what thrills him equally are the "gorgeous" Pakistani women. Aman plays Salman in "Kucch Rishtey Kachche Dhaagon Ke".
"It is a collaboration between production companies from the two countries," says Aman. "Kamal Monga who had once directed me in 'Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi' is the producer from India.
"It's about this man who's married to two women, an Indian Muslim and a Pakistani Muslim. The story is about the children from these two wives who hate each other.
"Besides me, there are Shahbaz Khan, Sakshi Tanwar, Tasneem and Smita Hai among the Indian actors. From Pakistan there are Bahaar Begum, Mustafa Qurshi, Saima and Rustam," he says.
Aman recently wrapped up the first schedule of the show in Dubai. It will also be shot in Mumbai and Karachi and "is likely to go on air on Geo channel".
This seems to be the second such project after an India-Pakistan serial starring and produced by Pakistani actor Humayun Saeed. Aman, who's been part of shows like "Kyunki...", "Kalash", "Kehta Hai Dil", "Kumkum", "Khulja Sim Sim" and "Devi" is obviously happy to be acting in the India-Pakistan serial.
"Actors there are pretty receptive about us. In fact, they say our shows are very popular and so are our TV stars."
Shooting in Pakistan will be a first for Aman and he is looking forward to it. "I'd absolutely love to shoot there," he says, flashing his best smile. What also excites him is the prospect of meeting Pakistani women. "They are so gorgeous and look so presentable. I was really impressed when I met some Pakistani ladies while I was in Dubai.
"I cannot say the same for the men from Pakistan and I know they are all going to beat me up after reading this!" he says in his usual humorous tone.
