Both these shows will redefine the various shades of love and will take viewers on a whirlwind journey that will bring to light the mystique and mystery. Speaking about the shows, producer Ekta Kapoor of Balaji TeleFilms said, "With Kawach Mahashivratri and Bepanah Pyaar, we hope to introduce captivating concepts along with incredible star casts. Two fresh stories that will entice viewers and redefine mystery. Bepanah Pyarr focuses on expressions and the complications of one strong emotion, love. Kawach Mahashivratri is a supernatural thriller that will witness evil energies taking center stage while the goodness of love will be tested in all its glory. Both the shows will evoke a multitude of emotions amongst viewers - be it love, empathy, hatred, suspense or reverence. The show's scale and production quality further add to the authenticity of the concepts, thereby creating a belief system around the perpetuity of love. With intriguing storyline, extremely talented cast and great VFX team in place, Kawach Mahashivratri and Benapah Pyarr will both be a viewer's delight" 


Deepika Singh, who plays Sandhya in Kawach Mahashivratri exclaimed, "I will be seen playing the role of Sandhya, a loving and caring daughter. She is a rational person, who is god-fearing but has no faith in supernatural elements and superstitions until she has a tyrst with it herself. This is a very different genre from what I have done before. I'm grateful for this opportunity and I'm sure the show will grab the attention of our viewers from the first episode itself." 


Namik Paul, who plays Angad in Kawach Mahashivratri says, I will be seen essaying the role of Angad, pure at heart, he is never shy of expressing himself. He never bows down to anything wrong but stands by the people he cares for. As a story of love and mystery, Kawach Mahashivratri will take viewers on a thrilling journey. How Angad and Sandhya fight through all odds, for their love forms the crux of this story." Pearl V Puri, as Raghbir in Bepanah Pyaarr said, “I’m thrilled to be a part of a refreshing story like Bepanah Pyaarr. It is a quintessential love story but with a twist. I will be seen as Raghbir, who has gone into a shell because of the mysterious death of his wife Baani. Adding various shades to my character is a challenge I’m hoping to overcome.”

Ishita Dutta, as Pragati in Bepanah Pyaarr stated, “While playing a bubbly girl-next-door appeals to every young actor, I feel lucky to have landed a challenging role such as Pragati. She has two sides to her, one for the world to see and one which she will never reveal.  I am looking forward to this new journey and I hope to live up to the expectations of our viewers. In Kawach Mahashivratri, as a fierce tussle ushers good and evil in Sandhya’s life, that uses her dreams and ambitions to manipulate her. Will she be able to battle the realms of the bone-chilling incidents and become the ‘kawach’ to protect her loved ones from the unknown?
