More on Navya : Discuss here | Watch full episodes

Star Plus presents a contemporary, engaging story... Navya. Portraying young Indians' constant tussle to balance tradition and modernity this beautiful story captures TV screens starting 4th April at 10pm.

STAR Plus launches new show Navya


Presenting a nayi soch, STAR Plus brings to its viewers a fresh and contemporary story mirroring modern India. A very realistic narrative of two ordinary families from UP settled in the city of Mumbai, the show presents a relatable picture of the young generation of today, who constantly struggle to keep pace with a modern world while trying to stay deeply rooted in Indian values. Star Plus presents the sensitive, modern narrative NAVYA, starting 4th April, 10.00pm.

Navya symbolises the new young generation of India. A 19-year old college goer, she is an extremely identifiable and average girl-next-door, who is confused about her life like a lot of young India is. Navya naturally balances modernity & traditionalism in her day-to-day life without even consciously thinking about it. Like most youngsters today, Navya has middle class parents, who constantly struggle between being parents and friends to their children. Navya has to follow rules at home – she cannot sleep over at her friends’ place, she has to return home before 7pm, she cannot be seen talking to boys and she cannot wear jeans. Her friends enjoy better freedom at home - one of them also has a boyfriend and Navya secretly wishes for one who would do mushy things for her, yet she is happy in her own world. As luck would have it, Navya falls in love with Anant, a boy hailing from a traditional and conservative family. Over time, the story beautifully captures Navya and Anant’s journey of love and their trials and tribulations in trying to stay uniquely Indian and yet moving ahead with the times.

Commenting on the show, Mr. Vivek Bahl, Executive Creative Director, Star India says: "Navya is a bold, new show from Star Plus, subtly yet sincerely taking ahead the channel's Rishta Wahi, Soch Nayi philosophy in the true spirit. Seemingly a young show, the show is much more than what appears on the surface. It reaches out to parents & youngsters alike in contemporary India & really aims to serve as a dialogue between old and new India."

Co-Produced by STAR Plus’ Vivek Bahl and Vikas Seth & Siddharth Kumar Tiwary of Swastik Pictures, Navya has newcomers Soumya Seth and Shaheer Sheikh essaying the lead roles besides a great ensemble cast supporting the show. In a first of its kind innovation on television, Star Plus and Times Music have come up with a peppy upbeat musical single ‘Bekaaboo’- specially composed for Navya. Composed by ace music composer duo Vishal & Shekhar, penned by Anvita Dutt and sung by Shilpa Rao, Bekaaboo is an inspiring music track that captures the questions, uncertainties, excitement of today’s youth in love. The song ‘Bekaaboo’ is now playing on all multimedia platforms and gaining popularity with many youngsters across the country.

Tune-in to the delightful journey of Navya, starting April 4th, Monday – Friday, 10 PM only on STAR Plus!

Default Meer Ali turns casanova for Navya...

Meer Ali who was last seen in Miley Jab Hum Tum has bagged an interesting role in Star Plus' new show, Navya...


Meer Ali who essayed the role of Nirbhay in Star One's Miley Jab Hum Tum will now be seen in a very interesting role in Star Plus' upcoming show Navya – Nayi Dhadkan, Naye Sawaal, produced by Swastik Pictures and Vivek Bahl.

The show which kick-starts on Star Plus on April 4th at the 10 PM slot is the story of two youngsters from very ordinary families who are settling in Mumbai. In addition to depicting the family issues, the show will give a youthful picture of the college life too.

Meer Ali plays Harry, the self-made Casanova who is a typical Love Guru in the college. There is this group of five friends in the college – the leads Anant (Shaheer Sheikh), Navya (Soumya Seth), Ranbeer, Ritz and Harry.

Harry is a person who has the 'I am the Best' attitude and overplays a lot. He is a typical wannabe, but is good at heart. His presence will bring a smile on viewers' faces.

When contacted, Meer Ali confirmed his presence in the show, "Yes, I am part of Navya. I play this very Chandigarh guy who is overly dressed and believes that he is the best. Harry is 300 times more than me in real life, when it comes to the persona he carries".

Tune in to watch the contemporary and engaging story from April 4th at the 10 PM slot…

Default Tere Liye to make way for Navya..

Relations between Ekta and Star network seems to be in a mess yet again, and Tere Liye happens to be the first victim...


Soap queen Ekta Kapoor's love-hate relationship with STAR network continues. The latest is that Star Plus has asked Balaji Telefilms to end Tere Liye. The 10 pm slot will now be taken over by Swastik Production's Navya in the first week of April. Vivek Bahl, Executive Creative Director, Star India will be co-producing this show.

A highly placed source confirmed that Tere Liye has indeed been given the marching orders.

Though Ekta Kapoor denied any such move, and in her reply via text message stated, "When is it ending! How come I don't know? Maybe you know more than me".

While the industry is wondering why Tere Liye is being closed in spite of doing consistently well with a good rating (3.5), it appears that old tensions between Ekta and Star have resurfaced. This theory gains credence with the fact that Balaji is making three new shows, but none of them are for Star.

Ekta however rubbished any clash with the channel by saying "Things are great between us".

Our source further adds, "The channel had first planned 14th March as the last airing date for Tere Liye, but then extended it by a couple of weeks. The reason for this might be that they did not want to launch Navya during the finale phase of ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. It is a different matter that the above new youth based show will have to deal with IPL (Indian Premier League) anyways".

Geetanjali Tikekar who plays the character of Nilanjana Ganguly denies any official knowledge of her show going off air saying "Normally we actors are always the last to know. We are doing well and the team even won an award at the STAR Parivaar event in Macau".

Lead actor Harshad Chopra also has no clue. He added, "If it does go, then the fore sightedness on part of the channel may have played a part in the decision. They want to end shows before the audience gets tired of it. Did Bidaai too not end on a similar high note?".

With this, the countdown for the closure of Tere Liye begins…
