Keith was last seen in the show Udaan, where he had essayed the role of a villain. Talking about it to Hindustan Times, Keith had said that it is extremely seductive to play a villain on screen, and that, such roles allow an actor to do much more than he might normally do in a positive role.
In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, Ekta Kapoor, when asked about the progressive plot of Dil Hi Toh Hai, had said that she is nervous about how the viewers would react, but at least she is trying. She said that television has become boring, and the stories and shows need to change with the changing times.
Ekta informed that the show is a family show, but with a modern touch. It will have sex education, and will also throw light on issues of the modern generation that have not been talked about before.
She said that Dil Hi Toh Hai is a family show, but it is not the kind of family that the television has shown for ages. There will be moments in the show when a mother will ask her daughter if she has any boyfriend issues, she will be seen telling her if the boyfriend has left her and that, it is okay. The show will talk about issues like good touch, bad touch and there will be sons and fathers having a cigarette and drink together, and it will be a conversation that can be had at home, with your sisters and your brothers. She said that it is a today's take on a family.
