Talking about the concept of the show,Vikram Bhatt said,“We have all seen romantic tales of happily ever after on television. ‘Dil Sambhal Jaa Zara’ is a show that delves into Ahana’s journey after she is married to the perfect guy – Anant Mathur. It is a mature, edgy love story which will confront the viewers with many unspoken realities of a marriage. The show content is not adult yet this show is bold purely because of the subject that tackles in a marriage. Viewers will be surprised to learn why Ahana’s marriage is a mistake and will connect with her conundrum.”
Smriti Kalrawho plays the character of Ahana adds,“Ahana is an extremely real character who is in touch with her raw emotions and at a stage of a life where she is still learning how to make her marriage work. Her world reflects modern perspective of today’s youth on relationships. She is also inspiring as she is a bold, no nonsense person who makes her own choices and faces her own conflicts. Personally, I am excited to play the character since it has its own complexities with the drama that unfolds in her life as she is stuck in a web of twisted relationships.”

When he narrated the script to me, I fell in love with the character. I play Ahana’s husband who is in love with her. He falls for Ahana because of her self-righteous attitude and maturity given her family background. With the kind of relationships we deal with in an Indian context, the show brings some modern day relationships into limelight.”
The show comprises a cast ensemble of discerning actors like Niki Walia, Sanjay Kapoor, Smriti Kalra and Ashim Gulati.
