Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon It seems like yesterday but it has actually been nine years since the show premiered on Star Plus.
Nine years since we first met Arnav Singh Raizada and Kushi Kumari Gupta later known as Khushi Kumari Gupta Singh Raizada.
They have been in our hearts and on our minds from that very day.
So today it is very hard for us to imagine that anyone else could have been cast in these roles.
However, as in the case of any TV shows there were multiple people who had auditioned for every role including that of met Arnav Singh Raizada and Kushi Kumari Gupta and later Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani had been zeroed in for the same.
On the occasion of this nine-year milestone, Producer Gul Khan had kept a live session with Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani and in this Sanaya revealed that Mohit Sehgal was also in the running to play ASR.
She even speaks of the time when she, Mohit and Barun were in the top three and she had to do the look test with both Mohit and Barun.
They met on that show and started dating in real life too while shooting for the same. Later, they both got married and are the perfect IT couple of the TV industry.
Barun at that time had done only one show and revealed in this chat session that he was not his finest during the first audition for Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naan Doon.
However, we are so glad that he did make it in the end and all others in the cast too.
Because frankly speaking Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon would not have been the same without Arnav, Khushi, Shyam, Anjali Di, Payal, Akash, Bua ji, Mami ji, Nani Ma, Ma, Babuji, Lavanya Kashyap, Nand Kishore, Aarav, Sheetal and even Bubbly.
There were also other juicy details from the show that have been revealed in this almost 50 minute live chat.
So all the fans of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon and Sarun / Arshi fans should check this out and yes for us it is another nice excuse to go back to the reruns.
