Television has seen lot many onscreen couples that became a hit pair overnight and the jodi of Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani in Star Plus’ Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, jointly produced by IMRC Entertainment and 4 Lions Films, is one of them. The duo has cast a magical spell on the audience. And as per their fans, both Barun and Sanaya make for a special jodi just because they keep their chemistry simple and this makes their characters very relatable. The couple also won the Best Jodi Award at The Eleventh Indian Telly Awards.
So what is the ‘X-Factor’ in Barun and Sanaya that makes them click as a jodi? Well, if you ask us, it is their simplicity and subtleness in which they play their roles that make them a pair worth watching over and over again.
So what do the co-actors of Sanaya and Barun have to say about this?
Daljit Kaur Bhanot, who essays the role of Anjali, said, “Barun and Sanaya are a good looking couple and this works in their favour. Also, they have a very good off screen rapport and this reflects on screen. Above everything, both are extremely talented and put in their best.”
Abhaas Mehta, who essays the antagonist Shyam in the show opined, “They excel as a couple because of their compatibility. Be it Sanaya and Barun or Barun and me, or Barun, me and Akshay (Dogra) or me and Daljit, we are close knit when it comes to a personal bond of chemistry off screen. And when we know each other so much, the scenes between us have to be really good.”
And what does Barun have to say about this sparkling chemistry? “I really do not know why we click as a couple (smiles). If we are doing well today, then I would attribute that to the compatibility that we have. If any adjustments need to be made in a scene, we know what we have to do without even talking about it. And I know how Sanaya would enact a particular scene and what her reaction time would be and the same holds good with her.”
So what is it that Sanaya is very good at? “Well, she is very good in emotional scenes”, said Barun. And after a pause, he added, “We are pathetic when it comes to a romantic sequence (laughs).”
Well, come on Barun you must be joking, as your fans wait with bated breath for the romance on screen.
Barun does not stop at that and gives his reasoning, “It’s because either me or Sanaya usually end up laughing when we are doing a close scene. And when Sanaya starts to laugh, nobody can stop her from laughing”. (Well, that makes us laugh too!!).
We caught up with producer Rajesh Chaddha (IMRC Entertainment) to know more about Barun and Sanaya and he obliged by telling us, “They say jodis are made in heaven, but this one was made on our sets. They both are endearing personalities and there was an instant chemistry between them. Both look good, perform well and are genuinely nice and simple people. And the kind of characters they were given to play just nailed it. Sanaya in real is equally chirpy and a chatterbox. Barun is very Arnav kind of a man with few words but determined. The whole set enjoys their scenes – right from the guard outside to lightmen to co-actors. We have been blessed!! Long live their jodi (smiles).”
Co-producer Gul Khan (4 Lions Films) echoed the same sentiment saying, “They have a great chemistry and they both are very hard working.”
We certainly agree to whatever has been said. All we can say is that their fans are waiting for Arnav and Khushi’s love story to hit the pinnacle of success…
God bless their jodi!!
