Prateik Babbar's upcoming film Issaq is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic Romeo and Juliet but the actor says the movie does not have a tragic ending like the original story.

Twenty six year old Prateik said the film, which is set in the backdrop of Benaras, is not a heart-rending story and the lovers don't die in it.

"We do not die," Prateik, who stars opposite debutante Amyra Dastur said.

Dastur, who has been part of many TV commercials, said she had always dreamt of being a heroine.

"I played in theatres of school and colleges, also in a TV commercial... Director Manish Tiwary made the characters more interesting," she said.

The actress plays the role of Bachchi in the movie.

For promotions of the film, the makers will be distributing Issaq Jodi Paan in selected theatres in Mumbai.
