Indian TV serials keep millions of people glued to their Television sets. They might be filled with drama or defy all sorts of common sense, yet we love watching them. And in a bid to add freshness to their content and grab more eyeballs, prime-time show makers are increasingly opting for newbie actresses or divas who are still evolving in leading roles.
Recently, we have noticed a trend on TV wherein the makers and channels are opting for popular male actors, who have an immense fan following on social media and across the globe, in leading roles. Whereas these handsome hunks are paired opposite docile and evolving beauties who are either new faces or have done hardly any show. We believe this trend is rocking as fans are loving their amazing chemistry. We bring you a list of such jodis!
Harshad Chopda and Pranali Rathod from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai: If acting, good looks, and popularity are combined, Harshad would rank right on top of the list. The actor gained superior levels of popularity with his shows Left Right Left, Kis Desh Mein Hai Meraa Dil, Tere Liye, and Bepannah. He has worked with some of the leading ladies of the industry. In Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai post-Mohsin’s exit, Harshad entered as Abhimanyu. And the makers paired an evolving actress Pranali Rathod. The actress had done shows but was not as popular as Harshad. However, looking at Pranali’s skill and attitude in front of the camera, she seems to have a long run in the industry. And as a couple, Harshad and Pranali look adorable.
Shabir Ahluwalia and Neeharika Roy from Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan: The heartthrob of TV, Shabir Ahluwalia broke many hearts when he decided to quit the popular show Kumkum Bhagya. However, he soon returned to the channel with a new show Pyaar Ka Pehla Naam Radha Mohan. In this show, Shabir is paired opposite Neeharika Roy. This is Neeharika’s first show as a lead and she is grabbing attention. In a quick time, Neeharika has become the darling actress on TV. Shabir and Neeharika make for a cute couple, do you agree?
Kunal Jaisingh and Tanvi Malhara from Muskurane Ki Wajah Tum Ho: Kunal Jaisingh aka Omkara Singh Oberoi from Ishqbaaaz needs no introduction. Hardly anyone can doubt this handsome hunk’s acting abilities and popularity. Kunal is currently seen in the Colors show Muskurane Ki Wajah Tum Ho wherein he is seen opposite a newbie Tanvi Malhara. Although Tanvi is a fresh face, hats off to her for carrying her role Katha to perfection with her innocence.
Shoaib Ibrahim and Aayushi Khurana from Ajooni: The young gentleman is making waves in the industry, courtesy his impeccable personification of Rajveer in Star Bharat’s show Ajooni. He made a comeback on TV but he is already an established actor who has an amazing fan following. On the other hand, his co-actress Aayushi Khurana is a new face on TV. She is trying to make a mark on TV by doing justice to her character. We are sure fans will love their chemistry as the show progresses.
Karan V Grover and Sayli Salunkhe from Bahut Pyaar Karte Hain: Karan V Grover made his acting debut in 2004 and ever since he has been the audience’s favourite due to his powerful acting and cute smile. We also love his screen presence because he makes us sit up and take notice. Karan recently signed a show named Bahut Pyaar Karte Hain opposite actress Sayli Salunkhe. This is Sayli’s first show as a lead but she has grabbed a lot of attention from the audience. Karan and Sayli’s jodi is also being appreciated by their lovely fans.
Neil Bhatt and Ayesha Singh from Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin: Neil made his TV comeback as Virat in Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin and he stole our hearts. He has flaunted his flawless acting skills and made us go gaga over him. Once you lay eyes on his mesmerizing performance, you will be a fan. In the show, Neil is seen with newbie actress Ayesha Singh. Now, they enjoy a massive fan following and are called together as SaiRat. In fact, fans love them so much that they don’t want any third person to come between them, even if it means Neil’s real wife and actress Aishwarya Sharma.
