Readers would be aware that Zee TV has joined hands with Studio LSD Productions yet again to introduce an exciting new show titled ‘Pyaar Ka Pehla Adhyaya Shiv Shakti’. Set against the backdrop of Varanasi, the show is a beautiful tale of love, showcasing a modern-day interpretation of the Shiv-Shakti dynamic with Arjun Bijlani and Nikki Sharma in the lead.
Popular actress Nikki Sharma will be essaying the role of Shakti, a young woman who’s lost her parents at a tender age and yearns for a sense of belonging while chasing her parents’ dream of her becoming a doctor. Nikki reveals she has always been a true devotee of Lord Shiva and has two tattoos on both her arms which say, ‘Om Namah Shivay’ and ‘Adi Shakti’, even before she was considered for the show and the role of Shakti. She also believes that this show has come as a blessing to her and was meant to be.
Speaking about her connection with the lord, Nikki said, “My family has always been a true follower of Lord Shiva and I worship him since I was a child. When I got to know that the show’s name is ‘Pyaar Ka Pehla Adhyaya Shiv Shakti’ and they wanted me to play Shakti’s character, I knew it was meant to be. I have a tattoo on my left arm which says ‘Adi Shakti’ and ‘Om Namah Shivay’ on my right. Call it a coincidence or a sign from the universe, I strongly believe in all these things, it was my love and devotion for Lord Shiva that has brought me here today. It was just my destiny to be the ‘Shakti’ of the show, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
In an earlier interaction, the leading man Arjun Bijlani too had opened up his special connection with Lord Shiva as he was signed up for the show. Pyaar Ka Pehla Adhyaya Shiv Shakti is all set to premiere on Zee TV from July 3 and will air every Monday to Sunday at 7:30 pm.
