Ek Boond Ishq tribute: Lead Viraf Patel shoots video

Viraf Patel

People come, people go, but what they leave behind are heartwarming memories. And actors while filming a show bond immensely with the cast and crew members.

Recently, Life OK show Ek Boond Ishq was pulled off air. And the show’s lead Viraf Patel was left with a void in his life. But rather than weeping or complaining about it, the actor chose to honour the show and the entire team in a beautiful way. And his iPhone surely gave him a lot of support.

Wondering how?

Well, the actor got together his team and shot them talking about the show and their attachment with it. Apart from all the actors, the 20 minutes video has writer- co producer Saba Mumtaz, producer Myleeta Aga (BBC) and Channel Head Ajit Thakur also sharing their feelings.

Shared Viraf, “I love people and getting to capture their perspective and emotions was definitely an interesting try. I was touched to see how they shared their emotions on camera for me and I was waiting for the right opportunity to share the video with them.”

And the right moment came at the wrap up party of the show, where amidst teary eyes and smiling faces, the team watched their journey come alive. “It was a satisfying moment for me to see them so happy. The video also acts as a photo album and I hope it keeps us all connected forever. Everyone surely seemed moved by it and it was a special experience for me,” quipped the good looking actor.

Ek Boond Ishq was Viraf’s first daily show and he said that it will always be special to him. “I must say the fans are to be thanked for making our show reach great heights, I am touched by their encouragement and support throughout our journey. This video is also a gratifying tribute to my audience. I really hope they keep on wishing the best for us.”

And finally when asked when we will see him back on TV, the actor quipped, “There are some people who want to work with me and there are some who I want to work with. But I haven’t yet taken a call but personally I feel I have been born to romance and thus would really love to do a romantic show with a great story.”

On a parting note, Viraf thanked Tellychakkar.com. “You guys have helped us to connect to our audience and been there all along; so thank you.”

It is our pleasure Viraf!

It ws Best ever tribute saw an actor giving its show...Loved this tribute when watch it left a teary eyes...so many memories around this show gave to its fans... fans r always be with this show..Loved the uniqueness this show bought in the tv world.. Its very sadistic that channel didnt understood the worth of its show when they started with head saying nt having enough confidence it will end in 3 mths conveys itself his thoughts.. The track which audience dislike gives an idea how there lack of knowledge they keep of viewers likes & disliked there tastes.... Not only PR was lacking but the market research of this channel lacks as per who audience likes & dislikes... Any way Ek Boond Ishq given such an abrupt end with kala is still free... want its another season back to my tv Telly chakkar please convey this to channel that viewers r asking for Ek Boond Ishq back to there tv screen with Viraf & Chhavi the couple we love to see them bk on our -screens with Ek Boond Ishq

Viraf showed good foresight to come up with the idea and executed it so well! It just shows Viraf's depth of feeling for his first daily show and his regard for each and every member of his team - his own Ek Boond Ishq! Its no wonder that such actions like this have made Viraf what he is today and why he is held with such affection and regard amongst the people he works with, his friends and his fans! As you rightly said, you were born to romance Viraf! And I am sure we won't have to wait long to see you in another romantic lead!

Ekboondishq ws the best & unique show of recent times. MJ Tara & kala,their unique characters captivated our hearts! Viraf chhavi & Vpji were phenomenal in their roles .. This particular video by viraf Phiroz Patel is so unique.anyone who loved EBI will be deeply touched by it& will leave them to tears ..hats off to him for taking so much effort for his fans & colleagues.. Many fans were against the leap in EBI & we always wanted to knw team's thoughts on it,. This video cleared all our doubts,reg leap closure & what they were going through with EBIs abrupt ending Which is still hurting the fans a lot! EBI team shared a good rapport wth fans,esp viraf he was always available in social sites giving replies to fans & appreciating the works by EBI fans,he behaved as if He's one among us.. From the bottom of the heart ,I take this oppurtunity to thank him for all the love he has showered on us! Wishing u all the best ..& hope to see all back togther in EBI season 2 with a bang esp As EBI ended in an open note ..
