After the popular television show, Bade Achhe Laggte Hain went off air, producer Ekta Kapoor is all set with another mature love story.


Ekta has approached Ronit Roy to play the male lead. Sakshi Tanwar aka Priya of Bade Achhe Laggte Hain, remains the first choice to play the female protagonist.

The show is titled Itna Na Karo Mujhe Pyaar. Ronit confirmed, “There is an offer, but it’s at a very nascent stage. I can’t confirm or say anything beyond this.”


Bade Acche Lagte Hai is the story of two strangers getting married and falling in love. Priya is a happy go lucky woman in her early 30s, not married so far and quite sure that she wouldn’t be able to get married ever. She takes tuition for college students and is happy with the world. Ram Kapoor, a wealthy man in his early forties, is a ruthless entrepreneur who also believes that he has missed the bus of marriage. But as fate would have it, they bump into each other through a minor car accident which hurts their egos more than their vehicles and then after a series of miscommunications and misunderstandings, destiny contrives once again to get the two married.
