This is the second attempt to adapt Chandrakanta on television after the mid-1990s version ended abruptly due to financial reasons. Of his own character Kroor Singh, Chandan Anand told IANS: “Kroor Singh is a very funny, lovable and an overconfident person. He is older to Chandrakanta but still dreams of getting married to her. He will try his best to impress Chandrakanta and her father, King Jai Singh. He is one of the important pillars of the show.”
Prem Ya Paheli Chandrakanta apparently deviates from the original plot of the novel and talks about the love story of Prince Virendra Singh, played by Gaurav Khanna, and Princess Chandrakanta who are the reincarnations of King Harshvardhan and his wife. Harshvardhan possessed all the powers of the world and stored it in a tilism. Now, as Vijendra, he and Chandrakanta have to rediscover the Tilism and take charge of the powers.
