Viewers will witness a moving shikara mid-air for the first time on TV with Asad (KSG) and Zoya (Surbhi) doing a romantic number on the song 'Ang laga de re' from the movie Ram-leela on it.
Surbhi was initially slightly apprehensive about the act as the shikara suspended on a crane had to float around mid air while the performance was on.
But she finally did the act unflinchingly. The spectators had a breathtaking view of a brightly-lit shikara floating mid-air and their favorite pair romancing each other on it.
Says Surbhi, "I went wowww the moment I heard the concept. I'm thankful to Zee for choosing me and Karan for this mind boggling act. I had never ever imagined in my wildest dreams that I would get to romance mid-air with lakhs of viewers watching me high above in the air.
"From the rushes that I have seen, I can totally vouch that this act is one of the key highlights of the event. Viewers shouldn't miss watching it on 1st December at 8pm. I had very less time to rehearse but I'm super happy with the results."
Choreographer Geeta Kapoor said, "The Zee team wanted to project Asad and Zoya (Karan and Surbhi) as a couple on the throes of love. I had to add something extra...something more than just dance to bring out their romance in front of LIVE audiences. So we came up with this thought of an aerial shikara act.
"A shikara is symbolic of love and romance. We bounced off our idea to Omang (Kumar, the art director) and he gave us a magnificently designed 2000 kilo shikara where we got Asad and Zoya to romance each other mid air."
