Well, Star Plus’ No 1. ranker series ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’ to go off air this week. The male protagonist, Barun Sobti has quit for personal reasons. The channel thought it better to wrap up rather than replace, considering his popularity. A first of sorts, I gather. 

The daughter who absolutely adored Arnav Singh Raizada and Khushi Kumari Gupta for their non stop banter, is feeling bad for them. Though, off late, we’d given up on the series as it wasn’t going nowhere, post the marriage. However, she was real happy that she could meet them earlier this year, as a Valentine’s Gift from Mommy dearest. She even made a card for all of them that Barun so sweetly read and kept. 

Unlike his on screen avataar, Barun was the prankster on the set. Khushi, poor girl was having a bad throat, yet was smiling and looking pretty. The wedding sequence was being shot. Payal and Aakash, pretty much the dedicated parallel leads, were gracious to talk to. Anjali who I met post a very long hiatus, pretty as ever. Shyam who we did not like in reel life but in real, quite the gentleman. Nanhe was just the cute boy next door. Mami was an absolute delight to talk with, in impeccable English, believe it or not. Mamaji, the dear friend who organised this outing for the princess. Nani who I’d seen as a child, was was a delight to meet after so many years. 

So goodbye to ASR who will now just be another hunk the daughter called the dibs on 🙂
