The fiction show which launched on 7th March on Channel V this year, promises to be the most unique and interesting concept for the youth who are always mesmerized by the glamour of singing reality shows. The new show aptly titled “ISHQ UNPLUGGED” is a love story between two contestants of a singing reality show. The romance between two completely opposite characters plays out on the backdrop of the singing reality show which they want to win for their own reasons.

Mandy and Antara, the two main leads of the show have definitely stolen the hearts of the youth by their phenomenal singing talent in the show. They continue to do so by the introduction of their new video which went on air on Monday, April 25th 2016. The new look of this tune is not only just the title track but also seems to be the new anthem for the young audience.


Since Ishq Unplugged is a music based show, to encapsulate the essence of the show, the music video is created to describe the journey and anxiety of the protagonists in the show, namely Mandy and Antara. Fancy outdoor locations, quirky looks, funky dressing and the incredible band playing are indeed a few more highlights of the track.

Having Mandy and Antara come from very diverse backgrounds and having entirely opposite personalities makes it interesting to see them sing and perform together; turn out of which is a beautiful music video. It shows their love-hate relationship very evidently. All we need to wait and see now is if this new amalgamation of the two leads mount to something more than just co-singing with each other?

ISHQ UNPLUGGED airs from Monday to Friday at 7:30pm only on Channel V.

The show is also available on hotstar and the music video is available on the link below:
