Actress Kanchi Singh is over the moon to have bagged the lead role in Rajan Shahi's next show on Zee TV, Aur...Pyaar Ho Gaya.


Reeling under the tremendous response that the first promo has garnered, Kanchi feels she is extremely lucky that the producer chose her for the lead role when she had actually gone to audition for another smaller role.

She says, "My character's name is Avni. She is a college student and is the youngest and the only girl in the Khandelwal family. The story is based in Jaipur and we'll be soon heading there for a long outdoor shoot."

Facing the camera is not new for Kanchi. As a child actor she has acted in popular shows like Kutumb, Kasam Se, Kahiin Toh Hoga and many others.

Not only this, she has also featured in many ads and has also done theatre with Nadira Babbar's group.



"So you can say that acting is in my blood," says the actress with confidence.

She further asserts, "I was shocked. I couldn't believe when I was told that I am the lead in the show. Avni (her character) is full of life, energetic and vivacious and has never fallen in love.

"She's very curious to know how it happens... she keeps asking her near and dear ones, 'Aapko pyaar kaise hua?... My character is a lot like Simran of Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge!"

The actress has been given an Indian look in the show and will be adorning ethnic designer wear.

"I'll be wearing jackets on my dresses and pom poms on my dupattas," gushes the pretty actress.

Producer Rajan Shahi says, "Aur...Pyaar Ho Gaya is a look into the life of a young girl who leads a protected life in the city of Jaipur. She is bound by the rule book that her highly traditional family has laid down for her.

"The story captures the journey of this girl who transcends the boundaries set for her and begins to experience life in all its glory. We're glad to have found our Avni in Kanchi. We wanted a cute, innocent, young face and Kanchi fit the bill to the tee. "

The show is slated to hit the screens in the New Year.
