The leading couple of any successful television drama is equally popular as the show itself. It’s the leading jodi and their chemistry which help the show garner huge TRPs.
With time some of these jodis become massive and popular. Fans go crazy over them. But once the show is over, it happens rarely that we see them get repeated onscreen. Only few times do the fans have had the opportunity to witness their favourite jodis once again on the small screen.
Bollywood, the magnificent Indian movie industry seems to have a certain inclination for its hot shot couples. Take for example, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol – these two are one of the most loved onscreen couples of the industry and a jodi which is admired for their onscreen presence. SRK-Kajol were the epitome of romance onscreen and went on to do many hit films together.
But when it comes to television, we don’t come across the popular television couples getting repeated onscreen.
These big jodis, despite being brands of their own are not frequently cast together as they are considered to be too expensive or are avoided to allow the show retain its freshness by casting someone comparatively newer.
Ram Kapoor – Sakshi Tanwar are one such couple who were cast again in the webseries Karrle Tu Bhi Mohabbat after the huge success of Bade Acche Lagte Hain.
The reel turned real life couple Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan were also recast in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi after two successful seasons of Kutumb.
If we see in recent times, Niti Taylor and Parth Samthaan went on to do 3 seasons of Kaisi Yeh Yaarian, a youth oriented romantic drama which earlier aired on MTV with the last season being presented as a webseries on the digital platform Voot.
But there are other telly couples too that were able to steal all the limelight during their time of air and made a place in the hearts of the viewers.
Though these hot shot jodis were not cast opposite to each other afterwards, fans would definitely love to see these larger than life jodis back on their television screens!
Here we present 6 couples which were super hit during their time of air but were not repeated again –
Barun Sobti – Sanaya Irani
One of the finest couples that television had around that time, Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani just spilled magic whenever they were together on the screen.
From their nok-jhoks, funny banters, tashn to their romance – the audience loved it all. Fans loved the sparkling chemistry that these two shared.
Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon was a super hit among the masses and fans seemed to love everything about Arnav and Khushi. The show was a massive hit with high TRP ratings throughout its run in 2011-12.
Such was the popularity that the show had to return as a short webseries on Hotstar to give the show a proper closure.
But after IPKKND, Sanaya and Barun have not been cast on a show together. Its unfortunate that fans are deprived of their magic all these years.
