Mumbai: Stars of popular show ‘Qubool Hai’- Karan Singh Grovr and Surbhi Jyoti’ performed a sizzling aerial shikara act to dazzle viewers at the Zee Rishtey Awards.

As Asad & Zoya, the pair has become the epitome of modern day romance in no time. Karan Singh Grover & Surbhi Jyoti have taken their sizzling onscreen chemistry to another level at the Zee Rishtey Awards 2013 and have woven a special place in the hearts of the audiences with their breath-taking never-before-seen act.

Viewers will witness a moving Shikara mid-air for the first time on TV with Asad (KSG) and Zoya (Surbh Jyoti) doing a romantic number on the song ‘Ang laga de re’ from the movie ‘Ram-leela’ on it. Surbhi was initially slightly apprehensive about the act as the Shikara suspended on a crane had to float around mid air while the performance was on. But she finally did the act unflinchingly. The spectators had a breathtaking view of a brightly-lit Shikara floating mid-air and their favorite pair romancing each other on it.

Says Surbhi, "I went wowww the moment I heard the concept. I’m thankful to Zee for choosing me and Karan for this mind boggling act. I had never ever imagined in my wildest dreams that I would get to romance mid-air with lakhs of viewers watching me high above in the air. From the rushes that I have seen, I can totally vouch that this act is one of the key highlights of the event. Viewers shouldn’t miss watching it on 1st December at 8pm. I had very less time to rehearse but I’m super happy with the results.”

Said choreographer Geeta Kapoor, “The Zee team wanted to project Asad & Zoya (Karan & Surbhi) as a couple on the throes of love. I had to add something extra…something more than just dance to bring out their romance in front of LIVE audiences. So we came up with this thought of an aerial shikara act. A shikara is symbolic of love and romance. We bounced off our idea to Omang (Kumar, the art director) and he gave us a magnificently designed 2000 kilo shikara where we got Asad & Zoya to romance each other mid air.”
Don’t forget to watch this mesmerizing act of Asad & Zoya at the Zee Rishtey Awards 2013 on Sunday, 1st December at 8pm only on Zee TV.
