The series will be hitting the high points as it steers closer on the relationship between Ajay, Simran and Raj. When naive Ajay arrives in Cloud 9, he is hit with the reality of life – he has to get a job and make a living. There is a glimmer of hope as he meets Simran – a mature career-minded girl whose closest friends are hip-mum, Nisha (played by Niki Walia) and sensitive guy Dr Raj. Cloud 9 follows the lives of Ajay, Simran and the other residents of Cloud 9 as they embark on their own journeys.
The Valentine’s Special week on Cloud 9 will see surprises and revelations! Nisha holds a Valentine’s Day Party, which spoils Raj’s plans to go away alone with Simran, whilst shy guy Ajay builds up the confidence to make advances on his love for Simran – but does he succeed?
Ajay attends Nisha’s glamorous party and is constantly being sidelined. He gets tipsy and reveals some very interesting things! This is Ajay like we haven’t seen him before.
Meanwhile Nisha’s son Johnny and his friend Eddie go on a double-date. Johnny is jealous when he finds out that Eddie’s girlfriend, Deepti – the girl his mother tried to set him up with, is incredibly attractive! The bickering Singhs also go on a romantic date, but do they still love each other?
Valmike Rampersad who plays Ajay in Cloud 9 tells us more: “Ajay is finally gaining more confidence as he learns how to deal with life’s daily struggles. His interactions with Simran and some of the other residents help bring him out of his shell. He is distracted and seems to have forgotten his real purpose for being in Cloud 9, which is to get a job and prove that he can make a life of his own. Will he get back on track and find himself in Cloud 9? Will he and Simran progress? Where does Raj fit in? Valentine’s day will open up a whole new can of drama.”
The series will feature special appearances by UK singer-songwriter Navin Kundra and English journalist and TV presenter Tasmin Lucia-Khan. Watch out for all the drama on Cloud 9 – Mon-Fri 6:30pm and 10:30pm, with the Omnibus on Saturdays 5:30pm – free on Zing, Sky 789 and Freesat 509.
Navin Kundra: “Working with the cast and crew of Cloud 9 was a great experience! It was fun to be amongst the buzz, the hard work and all the talent on the sets and I really enjoyed working with Niki Walia, whom I have been a fan of ever since her role in Astitva. Zing is doing a great job in taking this initiative to start something that was missing in the Asian entertainment scene and I am very supportive. I hope you all enjoy my guest appearance in the Valentine’s Special episode on Friday 15 February, and I’m looking forward to seeing how the story develops.”
The Cloud 9 team will also be making an appearance alongside Navin Kundra at the V5 Zing Bollywood Night – Valentine’s Special at Venue 5 Bar and Restaurant, London, on Friday 15 February. For your chance to WIN tickets to the night visit www.zingtv.co.uk.
