Ok…the title must have made the fans of both the shows feel elated? Hai na? Awww…we understand your emotions rightly always and that’s why some of you love us so much, right? (Haters please don’t interfere between this love affair of us. We know you exist but most of the time we don’t care!)
So basically, this year’s SPA can be termed as a great and happy get together event of the Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (YRKKH) and Ishqbaaaz families. The two shows of Star Plus that gathered maximum attention, survived all storms and managed to stay up the popularity chart.
YRKKH is obviously that exceptional show which might keep changing itself with time and despite being one of the oldest shows, it will keep emerging out as the most modern and freshest show among the recent new fresh shows. Trust us, these new shows will get old soon but YRKKH may still remain new despite being old. That’s the charm of the show that makes it rule the hearts of the viewers since 9 years now.
About Ishqbaaz, well, despite fluctuating performance on the chart, the show is a survivor and it has talked about everything this past year – Starting from showing forced marriage to #MeToo campaigns, this show has been radically different. It contradicts itself at times but mostly is loved for the love between ShivIka and the Obros.
And apart from these too, which other on air shows did grab your attention or rather passion on Star Plus? Probably none!
And as a result, all the major awards, went to the Ishqbaaz and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai leads. Now you know, why we said YRKKH and Ishqbaaz can represent the whole of Star Parivaar this year (Barring Kullfi Kumarr Bajewala which also did exceptionally well at SPA 2018) .
Leaving aside a few categories like Favourite Pita, Ma and Beti, everything literally went to these two shows and particularly to the leads of the two shows. It’s either Kartik or Shivaay or Naira or Anika.
After a long time, it’s just been these two shows that ruled the Star Parivaar Awards and probably they deserved too as no other on air shows are as gripping right now for the digital audience.
Previous years too, there have been shows that ruled the SPA. Particularly, Ye Hai Mohabbatein had been one show that could garner numerous awards during SPA for a number of years. But what made this SPA different is that, we can’t really find any competitor in the list of Star Plus shows this year to compete with the 4 lead characters of Shivaay-Anika and Kartik-Naira. They had not been flawless but has been strong and hard hitting for the audience.
