Rajan Shahi’s Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke gets in high ratings, cast elated



Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, a spin-off of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlta Hai (Star Plus), took off with a bang. The TRP ratings are high and the cast can’t keep calm! Here is what they have to say!


Rhea Sharma 

I couldn’t be happier and prouder being part of a show that resonates with the audiences and promotes such a progressive thought. I feel extremely happy that fans and viewers have been supportive and have been showering their love and appreciation on the show and its characters. It simply proves that our hard work has paid off. Viewers will witness more romantic moments between Mishti and Abir, family drama and sibling chemistry as the show progresses.

Roopal Patel 

I feel it’s god blessings, audiences unconditional love and teams’ hard work that have got us here.

I just pray to god and request the audience to continue loving us so that we can maintain the consistency of the TRPs. I am sure the kind of story we are dealing with will definitely give us a good rating consistently.

People have told me that they are loving the show which is always the best compliment. After Saath Nibhana Sathiya, this is a superb and very strong character that I am playing. It’s altogether different from the previous one. I am happy that the audience has liked me and accepted me as Meenakshi. I feel fortunate.

Kaveri Priyam 

It’s an extremely amazing feeling obviously when you work hard towards something and you see the results in the very first week itself. You feel really hopeful and also you get really inspired to work harder and with more dedication. I hope the audience keeps loving us the same way in the future as well.

Expectations were very high right from the beginning because it is a spin-off of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. I feel high expectations is a good thing because it motivates us, the whole team, to work more hard. The audience has realised that this is a very different show, unlike other TV shows. In this, there is a little less drama and more of reality. We have tried to make a lot of changes to break the monotony so expectations are definitely high and we artists are also trying to perform and work hard and live up to the audiences’ expectations.

I have some friends in the industry and they have seen the show and have said that the direction and cinematography is class apart. There is a very film-type of feel given to it.

Sameer Sharma 

I feel scared to be honest because it has just begun and as it has started with a bang. The expectations are very high, so it’s a challenging situation. Everybody now wants to do their best to make sure that the level doesn’t come down. It is an honour, of course, to be accepted and loved but at the same time there is the pressure of making sure that things go well in future.

The whole feel of the show is very fresh. It’s been shot, directed and performed beautifully so everyone is saying that it’s looking very nice. It’s not like the older shows, it’s looking very fresh.

Soniya Kaur

I am surprised as I did not expect it to do so well. As when a new show starts, it takes time for the audience to get attached to it.  So I had expected that the TRPs would come around 2 or so but when I got to know that its more than that, I was surprised. I was expecting it but not so soon! But it’s great that people have got connected to the show so easily.I feel scared when expectations start getting high thinking about the future. We are putting a lot of efforts. For example, they give us the script but we ourselves try and add things to make it better.

Sanjeev Seth

It was a bit expected from our side, the way the show was being made, the storyline and everything were quite interesting. The way it was shot, the production value, the outdoor sequences and all of that…so it was expected that we will get good results out of it and we all are very happy that we got what we had thought of.

The expectations will really be high and we are trying to live up to those expectations by working harder. As this is a spin-off of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, so the first weeks’ numbers can be due to various factors. Now as an independent show, from second and third week, we will come to know the real acceptance of the audience. So, the entire team is working hard.

People have liked the freshness about the show. The look is not similar to any other shows on TV,  it looks very different.

Jay Pathak

I really feel great about it. This ought to happen as everyone has been putting in a lot of effort. I have not shot much but I know about the other actors and how they have worked for hours non-stop. I am really glad that we got the result and that the TRPs have come so high.

The audience would be expecting more and more out of it and so I am sure that the scriptwriters are working on it.

Chaitrali Gupte 

I am really grateful to the audience that they gave our show so much love. I was thinking whether people would love our show like they loved Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai but by God’s grace, people have liked it as much.

When you get a good TRP in the first week itself, so expectations go high definitely. So as a team, from producer Rajan ji,  director,  writing team,  DOP, technical, artists, everyone is working really hard.

Sanjeev Jotangia 

I feel very happy and grateful. Actually, I had thought right from the time I had signed this show that it will be loved because it is a spin-off of the legendary Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Rajan Shahi ji is such a wonderful producer and he himself is a great director as well. To be honest, I was expecting TRPs between 2.0 to 2.5 so that way as it has come around 2.2, we all are very happy.

The expectations will always be high as I said that it’s a Star Plus show and a spin-off of a legendary show which has been running for the last 10 years. So expectations are going to be high.


For me family comes first : Sukhmani Sadana



For me family comes first : Sukhmani Sadana

For me, Family has always come first but even for my brothers…they have forever been my pillars of strength. I have never differentiated between my real brother and my cousin brothers and I make sure I send a Rakhi to all 8 of them. I’m gonna miss them on Rakhi Day and how I wish That i could have tied them one in person and not through couriers 🙂

For Independence Day:
Being a good citizen doesn’t mean to just love your country. It means to love it’s good but also trying ways to fix its bad. I really do love india like it’s my own baby and I crib a lot about it, even on my social media but it’s always with an intention to fix it, nurture it and make it better for our tomorrow and our children’s day after. My country is My own and I am proud to be an Indian.

Kunal Nirola on Friendship Day: I have been lucky to make friends wherever I have gone



Kunal Nirola on Friendship Day: I have been lucky to make friends wherever I have gone

For actor Kunal Nirola, his friends mean the world. The actor says that his friendships have helped him become a better person today. “Friendship is one of the most beautiful and powerful things that can flourish between human beings. Friendship can help to build you up or can even destroy you. Friendship depends on how you create it. I am a very jolly person and I make friends wherever I go. I have had so many friends and I was lucky enough as wherever I went, I made friends. These friends are a blessing to me. I am a person who gives his hundred percent even if one of the friends gives his ten percent. I start loving people and get very close to them and if something affects them then it also affects me. This is the beauty of friendship, it is like a family you create,” he says.

He adds, “I am from Punjab and I have stayed in Delhi, and now I am in Mumbai. I have my family of friends in Punjab, Delhi and now in Mumbai. Recently, one of my friends got married and she made me swear to attend her marriage, which is so cute and beautiful. Sometimes you need someone who pampers and supports you and it is where the beauty of friendship comes.”

Kunal says that his family members are also his best friends. “My parents are like my friends, especially my father as I share everything with him and he is my first friend. Even my mom and brothers are like my friends as I share even the stupidest thing with them. All of my friends are very close to me and I really love them. My college friends are in Bangalore and recently I had visited them and we all go on vacations. In a city where you know no one, friends make you happy. Friendship day is coming and you all should go and express your friendship to your friends,” he says.

Happy Friendship Day: Here’s who these TV actors are best friends with



Happy Friendship Day: Here’s who these TV actors are best friends with

From uplifting their spirits on their ‘low’ days, handling mood swings to taking care of them, these friends are surely people who are favourite TV actors adore!

Angad Hasija 

My best friend from the industry is Sara Khan. It’s been 10 years now and we are still good friends. No matter where she is, she has always stayed in touch with me. She was doing a Pakistani show in between and from there, she used to FaceTime me. We talk almost every day with each other. Many people say that a guy and girl can’t be friends but my friendship with Sara is very pure. We don’t meet much but whenever we do, it’s the same bond and connection. It’s been 10 years now, we have even done 2-3 shows together and I feel there are only a few friends who maintain friendships for so long. Once I was feeling unwell and my family was out of town, so Sara left her shoot for two hours and came to my place, took me to the doctor and dropped me back home, I am so grateful to her.

Rajesh Kumar 

My best friend is a person who has been with me when I was no one. My classmate, roommate, batchmate who has been with me since 1995; his name is Kranti Prakash Jha. He is also an actor. The best part about him is the gratitude towards his discipline, the way he lives his life, the way he has maintained himself,  the way he does yoga, everything is such an inspiration for me. He has always been an inspiration. Coming from a small town, getting the title of Grasim Mr India Best dressed male and eventually landing up in films, what a journey it has been. I have seen him throughout his journey. A guy from a small town who did not even have a sense of fashion and then to become Grasim Mr India best-dressed male is very inspiring. We are actually brothers from another mother. The first time we met in Delhi during college days, I remember him looking at my thin moustache and saying in a Bihari accent ‘Arey Baap re Aap Toh Bahut Sundar Hai’. I just laughed at him at that time. He had come in formal clothes and sports shoes and from then to now, the way he has worked on himself is incredible. He is such an inspiration.

Rahuol Lohani  

I have had many best friends since childhood, but in Mumbai, the first-ever good friend I made was Kirti Kelkar. We were in a show together called as Har Mod Par where I was playing her brother. I believe friendship happens automatically and no efforts need to be made. I have done so many TV shows and worked with many people but I have made only some friends and Keerti Kelkar ji is on the top of that list. I call Keerti my punching bag because whenever we fight, I am the one who gets angry and she understands me. I feel that the people who understand you are the ones who are your friends and that’s what my relationship with Keerti is all about. She is always there whenever I need her. Vikas Kadam is also a dear friend who was part of the creatives before and is now an actor.

Tinaa Dattaa

My best friend is Aashka Goradia because she always boosts my morale, she always motivates me. I have an attitude of gratitude for her. I shall always be thankful for her because she is that one industry best friend of mine who is not jealous of anybody. Who does not have ego issues? She will always show you the right path and never make you feel insecure unlike any other actors on set. She is a fabulous person and that’s why she is my best friend.
