We have always been rather fascinated by lovey-dovey and downright mushy sequences of amchi Bollywood. The dreamy dates, couples with amorous melodies in the background, had us all goosebumps with butterflies fluttering in our tummies.
However, Television is not too far away, and we have many tele couples, who have given us similar feels. Let us have a look at some of these downright hot and “in-love” reel couples of the television industry, who gave our Mills & Boons a run for their money.
Nupur & Mayank, Miley Jab Hum Tum
What happens when the chattery “Queen of Hearts” of Morena meets the silent topper of the university? Sparks, pretty noisy too.
Gunjan & Samrat, Miley Jab Hum Tum
The shy, sweet, and studious girl, meets the college heartthrob, and he falls, for her, hard. Can we add another sweet bit of info here? They fell in love for real and are engaged in real life too.
Armaan & Riddhima, Dill Mill Gayee
“Aasmani Rang Ho…Pyaar Ki Dhoop Ho…” This love ballad set in the heart of medical profession had us all doe eyes.
Asher & Khirad, Humsafar (Zindagi TV)
Pakistani serials have really changed our perspectives about people’s lives there, and this was one love story, which brought tears to everyone’s eyes. Beyond beautiful.
Pratham & Gauri, Kutumb
Strong and intense hatred, that radiated through their body language to reach us through our screens. And we were like, “They can never fall in love”. But they did, and our hearts went pitter-patter.
Prerna & Anurag, Kasautii Zindagi Kay
Ignore the weird spelling phobia of Ekta Kapoor, and the fact that the show stretched beyond our yawning powers. But you have to admit the initial love story was too beautiful, and so were Anu and Prerna together.
Kripa & Angad, Kaisa Ye Pyar Hai
Touted as the DDLJ of Indian Television, this was one of the romantic masterstrokes by Ekta Kapoor. Angad & Kripa’s chemistry scorched our screens and melted our hearts.
Madhubala & RK, Madhubala – Ek Ishq Ek Junoon
They met, they hated, they got married (forcibly), they fell in love. Quite cliché, but we loved RK and Madhu.
Naina & Capt. Rajveer Singh Shekhawat, Left Right Left
One of the most popular youth shows of the time, we loved it for just another reason; Naina & Rajveer together. Remember the scene when Capt just loses control of his heart on seeing Naina in Red Saree? Yes, we blushed too.
Raman & Ishita, Yeh Hain Mohabbatein
This is the 2 States of Indian television, and the lead pair is garnering much love for their on-screen chemistry.
