They were born to hate ... but destined to love! ZEE TV's next primetime fiction offering Aisi Deewangi ... Dekhi Nahi Kahin is an action-packed love story of two young passionate souls, the dynamics between whom are more likely to develop into intense hatred rather than love. Based in the hinterlands of Gujarat, the story focuses on Tejaswani and Prem, but the epicenter of all the drama is Dharam Singh Rathod, Prem's father and a dreaded don of yesteryears. Tejaswani and Prem are poles apart in personality and come from diverse family backgrounds. With Tejaswini's father being an honest, upright, martyred cop, nothing between her and Prem could even be faintly similar. It is circumstances that result in them fiercely locking horns. The show starts on 22nd May, airs every Monday to Friday at 7:30 PM, only on ZEE TV.
The 52-year-old retired don Dharam Singh Rathod has a constant fear that his past will come back to haunt him in the present. His son Prem is a spirited, young man with swagger bordering on arrogance, his own set of strong principles and above all, an undying devotion to his much revered, influential father. Tejaswini, having lost her father at a tender age, is a feisty, firebrand who stands up tall and strong for fairplay and justice. She is physically strong and agile, can crumble someone's confidence with the power of her penetrating eyes.
Tejaswani has grown up hearing stories of her father's valour and courage. He was in the police department and died to become a martyr fighting evil. She, in a turn of events, finds out that her father was mercilessly killed in a crowded market by none other than Dharam Singh Rathod. What ensues then is a dramatic, action-packed, romance that is tainted with thethirst for revenge.
Veteran Gujarati theatre and film actor Rasik Dave will play the character of Dharam Singh Rathod, who doesn't instill fear in people but still commands respect! After a series of auditions, debutante Jyoti Sharma has been cast as Tejawani. The handsome Pranav Misshra will be seen making his debut as the hero of the show.
The show is supported by a high-decibel marketing campaign that will bring alive the concept through a thought mnemonic of 'Deewangi meter' across mediums - print, radio and outdoor. Digitally, the channel has collaborated with user-generated content website AKKARBAKKAR.COM to showcase 8 real life stories of love against all odds. On radio, RJ's will engage the listeners with real-life, absolutely fun and uncanny deewangi stories and key markets will see interactive and distinct outdoor hoardings.

Her sense of justice is strong enough to even make her lock horns with her own family members if need be. Each of our show's characters are strong, well-etched and author-backed with intense drama that will unfold between them at a racy pace. It's an entertaining love story and has the masala of both film and television amalgamated in to one".
