Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon was a much loved show on Indian television and even after it ended its popularity continued. Actors Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani’s chemistry won several awards and fans wanted to see them again in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon 3. Barun and Sanaya played the iconic characters Arnav Singh Raizada and Khushi Kumari Gupta.
But while Barun came on board Sanaya was never approached for the show by the show’s producer Gul Khan. Instead she hired Shivani Tomar, who hasn’t had much luck professionally and had been replaced multiple times. Fans of Barun – Sanaya and the previous season were against the new pairing since the beginning and even begged Tomar, 27, to exit the show. The negativity towards the lead actress played a huge role in its low TRP. So did the initial costumes of the cast that looked unreal.
Several twists and turns and changes were incorporated into the show to make it more appealing to the audience but it vain. The show is now wrapping up after just three months. What was touted to be Barun Sobti’s grand comeback on television fell flat and Shivani Tomar’s breakthrough role bombed – Will she able to get any lead role after this?
The whole saga has proved that audience is the biggest god here. It’s them who decide the fate of a show, it’s longevity and even its cast. Unfortunately Gul Khan never understood this and her ambitious project is going off air. Maybe she can learn from this and pay heed to the audience’s wants from now on.
