Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, who has produced the forthcoming TV show "Dil Ki Baatein Dil Hi Jaane", says Ram Kapoor was the perfect choice for it.
The "Bade Achhe Lagte Hain" star is heading back to television with "Dil Ki Baatein Dil Hi Jaane", where he will play the role of Ram, who is on the brink of losing his terminally ill wife Anandita (played by Gurdeep Kohli) forever.
"Ram Kapoor as himself was the perfect fit for the role that I had visualised, hence there was no requirement for him to lose weight. His acting skills are enough to move viewers to tears and make them feel the same pain as he is going through," Bhatt said in a statement.
"Dil Ki Baatein Dil Hi Jaane" will be aired on Sony Entertainment Television from March onwards.
