Despite the show coming to an end, actor Barun Sobti’s epic character remains etched on our minds. Here are such priceless moments when you aspired to be Arnav…read on:
The ‘Almost’ Kiss:
While Bollywood tries hard to throw skin and sex on our face, Arnav and Khushi (Sanaya Irani) created one of the most intimate scenes of screen by ‘almost’ indulging in a kiss. Even though the kiss was interrupted, their smouldering chemistry and sensuous acting made for an interesting watch.
Considering how the two have always been at loggerheads, it came as a rather pleasant surprise when Arnav proposed to the love of his life. That beautiful moment, captured by Khushi’s complete unawareness and Arnav’s goofy ways, made everybody sit up and take notice.
The ‘Teri Meri’ Performance:
If you thought the romantic number performed by Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor was romantic, you probably drooled all over tour TV sets when Arnav and Khushi got down and dirty on this song. Didn’t you wish, fervently, that you were Arnav? Of course you did.
Looking for Khushi:
The other time you wanted to be Arnav was when you had found your own ‘Khushi’ and wanted to your love story to be as wonderful as your screen idol’s. Even though the two started off as bitter enemies, they realised their love for each other and made for a stunning pair.
The First Kiss:
It’s a pity Barun is married and Sanaya is in a steady relationship, because looking at their chemistry in this scene, we all wanted them to get together in real life too. Trust Arnav to make even the most mundane of tasks romantic and beautiful.
Arnav’s ‘What The’ Dialogue:
He had a specific way of reacting in situations by saying ‘what the…!’ It was so popular with youngsters that it became a trend of sorts in colleges. It also has its own Facebook page and Twitter handles!
Kyunki I Love You, damnit!
If anybody could’ve pulled a proposal this casual, it was Arnav. He can’t keep his eyes off his beautiful angel Khushi when she is getting ready for a puja. He holds her face in his hands and says, ever so casually, ‘Kyunki, I love you, damnit!’ and we went awww…
I Am Sorry For Everything:
The series started off with Arnav being mean to Khushi and saying really ugly stuff to her. But when he realises that she is also an orphan like him, he says sorry to her. That heartfelt sorry with tears in his eyes is one of the most beautiful ones on TV.
The Suhaag Raat:
Elegantly sensuous scenes are very rare on the Indian television. The suhaag raat scenes either look too crass or vulgar. But the sexual tension between Arnav and Khushi is classy, smoking hot and extremely exciting.
His Emotional Side:
Be it his love for his sister, his passion for his lover or the intense hatred for his brother-in-law, Arnav always had his emotions on the brim. That’s what makes him a real and relatable character.
