New Delhi, Nov 22 (IANS) TV czarina Ekta Kapoor, who has teamed up with STAR Plus for her new show "Ye Hai Mohabbatein", hopes to create the same magic with the entertainer that she had done with her past shows on the channel.

The show marks the return of popular TV stars Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel in lead roles.

"My association with STAR goes back a long way. We have together celebrated many successes and created iconic characters through generations. I look forward to working with them closely on this show and I am sure that the viewers will accept Ishita and Raman (characters of new show) into their families, Ekta of Balaji Telefilms, said in a statement.

Ekta has earlier produced hit shows like "Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi" and "Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki" for the channel.

"Ye Hai Mohabbatein" is an urban story of two Delhi-based neighbours - Iyers and Bhallas, who have a conflict prone relationship. But things take an interesting twist when the Iyers' dentist daughter Ishita and the Bhallas' businessman son Raman find themselves attracted to one another.

The show goes on air Dec 3.

It also brings together veteran artists like Neena Kulkarni, Abhay Bhargav, Kaushal Kapoor, Shenaz Rizwan and Ruhanika Dhawan in pivotal characters.

Talking about the show, Gaurav Banerjee, general manager, STAR Plus, said: "We are delighted to partner with Ekta once again. The story she has brought to us is urban and contemporary.

"This love story begins after a marriage gets over. It explores the theme of a second chance in love. With well etched characters and a strong urban narrative, the show deals with day-to-day issues faced by modern couples. We are positive that our metro audiences will see a connect with Ishita and Raman and follow their story."
