Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon to end two short of the 400 mark with Khushi being crowned as Mrs India

Star Plus’ very popular show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, produced by IMRC Entertainment and 4 Lions Films wraps up this Friday (30 November 2012). And this sudden decision comes after the channel weighed the pros and cons regarding the show’s future post Barun Sobti quitting the show. And a mutual decision was taken to rather end the serial with Arnav and Khushi (Sanaya Irani) enjoying the limelight after Khushi getting crowned as Mrs. India.

Well, this is the ending that has been initiated now!! But spare a thought for the major drama that the unit shot with Barun, in order to bring to an end the character of Arnav before they introduced the new lead of the show, Viraf Phiroz Patel… The creative team had shot an extensive accident sequence with Barun and had decided to give an abrupt end to Arnav post the accident.

But we hear that the accident sequence will not find a place in the track now. Instead, the story will end on a happy note with Khushi winning the contest and Arnav seen in the background. Also, we hear that the team of Iss Pyaar plan to shoot a song sequence with their main characters to give a fitting end to the popular show that found a place in every viewer’s heart.
However, the makers have a major problem here as Barun Sobti is not in India to shoot a finale scene with them. For the uninitiated, Barun is off to UK to spend some quality time with his wife.

Another interesting aspect is that Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon will wind up at a point where it is just two short of the landmark achievement of completing 400 episodes. With Star Plus airing the special event, Nayi Soch Ki Talash Aamir Khan Ke Saath this Thursday (29 November) between 8-9 pm, it only means that Iss Pyaar will not be aired on that day. And Friday (30 November) will be the last episode (at 398).

So how has the whole journey been? Talking about the journey of making a cult show like Iss Pyaar, producer Rajesh Chadha states to, “It was a great journey, a great team effort with so much passion and positivity in each team member. Star Plus really stood by us through all the ups and downs and it was great working with the channel. At this point, I remember only the highs as we are parting on a high note, with a sense of great achievement of creating a cult show.”

On Sanaya Irani, Rajesh Chadha says, “Sanaya has been the most lovable and true professional during the show. Khushi will remain in our hearts for a long time. She did comedy, drama, emotion and above all the romantic scenes so very well; it only proves how good an actor she is.”

On Barun, Chadha avers, “Barun from day one has been very much Arnav kind, a man of few words. He is strong headed about his goals in life. I saw him as a very emotional guy from within who never wanted to get trapped into worldly stuff. A thorough professional, always stayed away from issues. He in his own sweet ways created a lively environment on the sets with other co-actors.”

In one simple statement, all we can say is that ‘RIP IPK’….We really enjoyed writing about the show, as much as the loyal fans loved seeing it and reading about it.
