The idea of Paranormal Romance caught on so well that many vampire romance novels have influenced movies and T.V. shows. I think that it is this popularity of Twilight and Vampire Diaries which motivated the Indian TV Serial Maker Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms to come up with a Hindi Television Soap called Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahani which shows clear signs of inspiration from both these Best Sellers.
Vampire Romances are part of the latest best-selling genre in today’s romance fiction books market. Today Vampire Romance Stories are all the rage, thanks to the popularity of Best Selling Vampire Romance Novel Series like Twilight and Vampire Diaries. What exactly is that make these stories different from others and what makes people attracted to it?
I think one of the major reasons for the fascination of people towards Vampire Romance Books is that they allow the reader to go beyond normal life into a fantasy world which does not exist in normal life and hence cannot be compared or related to. Also all the Vampire Romances has a certain element of danger, mystery and excitement which makes them interesting reads. When a mortal is involved with a vampire, it almost elevates them to a fictional, fantasy level that cannot be achieved in real life which is what makes a Bella and Edward of Twilight Saga and Elena and Stefan pair of Vampire Diaries different and interesting from the normal romance novel hero and heroine.
The idea of Paranormal Romance caught on so well that many vampire romance novels have influenced movies and T.V. shows. The Vampire Diaries which tells story is about Elena who is torn between two vampire brothers Stefan and Damon was made in to a TV Series in 2009 with Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert, Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore, Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore and Katerina Graham as Bonnie Bennet as cast. It is one of the most viewed shows. The Movie based on Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight directed by Catherine Hardwicke starring Kristen Stewart as Bella Swan and Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen also ended up being a huge commercial success. I guess it is this popularity of Twilight and Vampire Diaries which motivated Ekta Kapoor of Balaji Telefilms to come up with a Hindi Television Serial called Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahani which translates into A Story of Love which shows clear signs of inspiration from both Twilight and Vampire Diaries. Pyaar Kii Yeh Ek Kahani tells the love story of a Vampire named Abhay Raichand played by Vivian Dsena and a human called Piyali Jaiswal played by Sukirti Kandpal. This Soap which is aired on Star One Channel between 8:30 to 9:00 PM is a huge hit with viewers. Though I normally dislike copies or adaptations I should say that I love this different and interesting serial and has not missed any episode so far. If you are a Vampire Romance lover you would love this dark and forbidden love story between a Vampire and a Human.
