Animated Pitch of TV Show Enters International Contest.

An Animated pitch of popular Indian Television show ‘Iss Pyaar ko kya naam doon’ has been entered in an International Video Contest by Acclaimed short film maker Varun Mehta (The Unknown World) this November. The short features the popular characters from the show played by popular actors Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani. The short presents the characters deeply in love. Talking about the concept Varun said ‘As an Animator, I feel responsible towards how should I shape the thing up, since Animation hasn’t got the favourable response here it deserved to get unlike other countries.

 “We need to get new Ideas out to get out Animation out of its infancy stage and even though the idea is just bizarre, a start is needed to take place.” This is not the first time an animated pitch has surfaced like that. Pitches of popular shows like Geet and Miley Jab Hum Tum have already gone popular over the Internet. Talking more about the matter Mehta said –“The main idea to use these pitches over the net is to get them recognized and they can be further taken to full production value. An Animated TV feature or a movie anything that can get the right exposure.”

On the Other hand, Fans have received the pitch almost positively and have already started pushing the ‘Vote’ Button. However, most of the fans are mourning about the exit of their favourite star ‘Barun Sobti’ from the show. But some fans have come out to show the solidarity for the show and the actors.  Voting has already started on the site. People can sign up at and vote at The contest shall run up to November 30.
