The wait is finally over. The makers of Drashti Dhami and Arjun Bijlani-starrer Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil, which has been making a huge buzz for quite some time now, has released the first promo of the show.

While rumours had it that the show, which has been extensively shot in Austria, is inspired from hit Bollywood film Pardes starring Shah Rukh and Mahima Chaudhry, the promo hints of a refreshing story.

Shot in beautiful locales, the promo starts with Drashti waiting for a train when she sees a checkbox on a poster and places her bindi in one of the boxes. Later Arjun walks past the same train platform and sees the bindi. The game of tic tac toe then begins. As the game continues for days and the two get curious to get a glimpse of each other, the poster gets replaced one fine day, leaving them disappointed. The incomplete love story is what the show seems to be narrating. Both Drashti and Arjun look stunning and will be sharing the screen space for the first time.

In other news, the shoot of Pardes Mein Hai Mera Dil came to a halt recently when a group of people who came to have a glimpse of the lead actor. While fans thronging into an outdoor shoot location are nothing new, this was rather funny as the fans mistook Arjun for Shah Rukh Khan.

The report said that Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which has Shah Rukh in a cameo role, had been extensively shot in foreign locales and when some Austrians fans of SRK saw some Indians shooting in Vienna, they assumed that it was SRK shooting for Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
