What happens when a majestic raja is forced to marry a commoner, albeit a gorgeous one, under social pressure? Ek Tha Raja Ek Thi Rani happens, what else! Yes, we are referring to the just concluded marriage of Rana Indravardhan (Siddhant Karnick) and Gayatri Seth (Drashti Dhami). The mismatched pair makes for a smashing husband-wife on the screen even though their union is borne out of social commitments than love. We tell you why they are a couple to watch out for…take a look:
Withering under his mother’s pressure and society’s guilt-trip, the dashing Rana marries the simple, yet stunning Gayatri. Despite his immense love for his ex-wife Sulakshana, he marries Gayatri because of his word to her. To him, promises are everything. We know that the show is based in the 1940s, perhaps that’s why a guy who can honour his promise comes across as unique. We wish we had more men like him 2015, eh?
Gayatri’s true love
So what if Rana doesn’t nurture any feelings for his new bride, the vintage beauty sure has feelings for him. Her immense love and affection was already poured into a letter that reached the Rana, making him realise his wife’s genuine pyaar. Can the Rani, through her devotion, love and care, turn Raja’s love life around? Will this one-sided fare become the affair of the century? Let’s wait and watch…but we do have our fingers crossed. What about you guys?
Coming together despite many obstacles
The jealous Kokila tried to shatter Gayatri’s impeding marriage with her crude moves. Badi maa tried everything in her books to stop the marriage. But that didn’t come in the way of this epic couple. They might not have discovered love, but they are definitely destined to be together, as is evident from their wedding that took place despite the obstacles. Will their love story grow with each passing episode? Will Rana wake up to his wife’s charm and simplicity?
They look smashing together
One of the most important reasons to look forward to these two is their chemistry. They crackle the screen even when they are not in a conventional romance. Imagine the smoke when their passions are ignited? It also helps that the two look gorgeously vintage together. From their body language to sartorial sense, the two are effortlessly chic. We are absolutely stoked to see what the future holds in store for them. We can already smell a timeless love story, but how it unfolds is for the viewers to see!
