Unconventional love stories are rarely seen on television but Dhhai Kilo Prem is an exception which has been grabbing eyeballs. Producer Sandiip Sikcand who has been the powerhouse creative behind successful shows like Kahani Ghar Ghar Ki, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein etc, tells us that Meherzan Mazad was actual his second option for the role. Sandiip reveals, "I was very keen on casting Jay Soni for the role. He's a dear friend and I've also seen his transformation. He was pretty chubby earlier and would have made the perfect 'Piyush' on our show. However, Jay already had commitments due to which we couldn't work together."
Elaborating on Meherzan he says, "Meherzan has really though done such a fabulous job that its difficult to imagine anyone but him playing this role. Meherzan and I still have a joke between us as I keep telling him that if you don't do a good job, I'll bring in Jay. But honestly even Jay after seeing Meherzan told me that I had found the perfect actor to play this character.
The handwork that Meherzan puts in is commendable and its truly an inspiration for me as an actor to see Meherzan perform.
