Actor Pearl V Puri, who will be next seen in new TV show "Phir Bhi na Maane.. Badtazmeez Dil", says he idolisesBollywood stars Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor.
Pearl, last seen in "Dil Ki Nazar Se Khoobsurat", said he eventually wants to pursue a career in films.
"Hrithik Roshan is an excellent actor and a brilliant performer. He can fit into any character. I also admire Ranbir Kapoor. Like any other actor, I also want to join Bollywood. Let us see where life takes me," Pearl said.
Producer Saurabh Tewari, who is known for his popular shows on television like "Madhubala - Ek Ishq Ek Junoon" and "Rangrasiya", is behind musical love saga "Phir Bhi Na Maane.. Badtameez Dil", which is set to air on Star Plus from June 29.
Pearl will be playing a rock star in the new TV show, which will feature five original tracks. Music talent show "India's Raw Star" contestant Darshan Raval has lent his voice for Pearl's character Abeer on the show.
"I sing, write and compose in real life too... It helped me a lot to understand my role," said the actor, whose character is inspired by RD Burman song's.
Talking about the new show, Tewari said, "This show will be focusing on the youth. The original music composition of the show makes it different from all the others. Music helps people unwrap various emotions and our story along with the lyrics of the songs will hold the audience."
"Badtazmeez Dil" will see Asmita Sood playing the female lead opposite Pearl. The actress has starred in several Telegu, Kannada and Malayalam films.
"This was a big step for me, from movies to television but I am glad I took up this role. Just like me, Meher is also practical and career oriented so I am exploring myself through my character. Also the cast and crew is really warm and accepting of me as television is new to me so I am excited to embark on a new journey. All I want now is to wait and gauge audience's reaction," the actress said.
Actors Suyyash Rai and Vindhya Tiwary also feature in the TV show.
