Re-Upload: Asad & Zoya | ‘If you were here beside me instead of in New York…’
Thank you! Indeed, she’s a beauty! I have so much love for her ♥
This is the first time I’m seeing Raqesh act! & yep, I’ve just written a mini review of him today :)
I watched Raqesh’s dhamakedaar entry & I see potential. Instinctively I imagined it would be Karan running through the flames, his soul-shattering scream of ‘Zoya’… I know that if that scene was with Karan I would’ve had goosebumps watching it. But I didn’t, and that is no criticism. Until we see Raqesh put his own stamp on Asad, actually BE Asad I obviously will not be able to ship AsYa 2.0 & will not feel that intensity.
I loved his expressions at the end, and I’m confident he will put his own stamp on the character. As good an Asad as KSG? Almost certainly not, as Karan identified with the role in a way no one else would be able to. But we will see different dimensions to Asad’s character with a fresh portrayal. I’m ready to see what Raqesh can bring to the role!
Please note, I have written this straight after watching various AsYa scenes, one of which being Mangalpur. I’m a bundle of feels right now & my heart actually hurts thinking of Karan as Asad.
Looks like more people are winning a coveted place in my ignore list.
