Talking about the show, viewers’ favourite actor Karan Kundrra says, “It is extremely delightful for me to make a comeback to the fiction genre on television with such a power-packed show. I’ll be doing a fantasy drama, a genre that has always intrigued me and I’m glad that I’m joining forces with COLORS for Ishq Mein Ghayal. My fans are going to see me in a completely different avatar as there are so many layers to Veer’s persona that I am set to bring alive on screen.”

Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10 fame, Gashmeer Mahajani says, “After doing an incredible show such as Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 10, I was looking for some compelling opportunities that would bring forth my acting skills again to the table and that’s when Ishq Mein Ghayal came my way. The show has an interesting mix of mysticism, romance, and drama which makes it a complete package of entertainment for viewers.

About the show, popular actor Reem Shaikh says, “Colors has been a crucial part of my life and career as I started my journey with the brand almost a decade ago and have done Ishq Mein Marjawaan just recently. Coming back to the channel with yet another exciting show Ishq Mein Ghayal is nothing less than a blessing to me. I’m looking forward to working with great actors such as Karan Kundrra and Gashmeer Mahajani. We are having a gala time shooting for the show in Uttarakhand and hope the viewers would enjoy the show as much as we are enjoying working on it.”

Netizens were quick to point out the uncanny resemblance of the promo to that of American TV series, The Vampire Diaries. Instead of vampires, the lead actors, who play brothers, play werewolves on the show. The 8-season fantasy series revolved around a young Elena Gilbert who meets a vampire Stefan Salvatore on her first day of high school and feels a connection with him. However, over the course of time, she finds out that Stefan and his brother, Damon Salvatore are in fact vampires. The series was led by Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder.

After watching the promo of Ishq Mein Ghayal, netizens pointed out the age gap between Reem Shaikh (20) and actors Gashmeer Mahajani (37) and Karan Kundrra (38); the Damon Salvatore's iconic 'Hello Brother' dialogue which is said by Kundrra and that the plotline seems similar to the original series which premiered 13 years ago.
