loved loved LOVED your post
two of my favourite onscreen tellywood couples...and i cant tell you how wonderful it was to see them turn into a beautiful reality!
thank u, thank u, thank u for this...and i will just tell u why!
<warning: this might be long...i hope i dont end up boring ya!
from as much as i can recall, kutumb was the first ever soap i followed wholeheartedly on tv...prior to that was only kids show n random stuff...but gauri-hiten jodi got me hooked like no other...i mean, that was the time when balaji had lotsa shows going - kyunki, kahani, kasauti, etc etc...but no matter how hit those were, kutumb was my fav and the sole credit for that goes to gauri-hiten - sizzling chemistry...i rem waiting just for gauri-pratham scenes during the epi...after the end of the epi, waiting desperately for the 24 hrs to pass so i cud watch them again - that was the magic they created, onscreen!
offscreen - well when the show was on air, public forums like IF werent too prevalent so didnt have realtime access to theit real life...from wotever li'l i saw, i felt the two didnt get along so well...and that saddened me for some reason...i mean, i knew they were just actors and that doesnt necessarily translate into reality, but somehow i really wanted them to be together...i dunno why, felt that they fit each perfectly, like made for each other!
guess after kutumb, they came back in one-off shows - before the karan-nandini jodi in kyunki...and their chemistry clicked again, instantly...was so good to watch them together again (until kekta ruined it with her usual stuff, which i just cudnt stand!)
but somehow that didnt matter...cuz this time the reality was FAR BETTER , wot i had wished for (not like prayed but u know those small innocent wishes) had actually true - gauri-hiten GETTING MARRIED - i grinned like an idiot when i heard that news, i elt like dancing
...and seeing their wedding pic in the newspaper (some matrimonial published it
), just had me smiling ear to ear!
never before had a tellycouple, infact, any celebrity mattered to me so much...i thought i was insane to care so much...but in the end it gave me happiness only...so m glad i did! i adore this couple for wot they are...
agree with everything u have written...gauri, though seems reclusive, comes across as a very warn person the more u get to know her...u see her with hiten, with her kids, and u can see how much it means to her...and yeah, she is one classy chic with a figure to die for
...n i love the way she carries herself! and hiten is the fun-loving, happy-go-lucky guy...who loves to bring a smile on everyone's face...that's how he finally got along with gauri , so cute!
u know, the cutest offscreen moment i have seen of GHT is from NB2, behind the scenes...when hiten is imitating gauri singing and she couldnt stop laughing (wil try to post the link, its a must watch, if u havent) - for me, a couple which laughs together, stays together! *touchwood*
Thank you so much for sharing their pics...had seen some, others totally new...but this couple never fails to bring a smile on my face...
and if you thought, i was finished, there's more - MoNaya abhi baaki hai mere dost...
waise since u made such an adorable post (s), i hope u dun mind me asking, whats your name? or should i call u ght_sajan only?
ok coming to MoNaya...well i wouldnt lie, i had seen n liked shows b/w kutumb n MJHT...liked couples also - like sujal-kashish in KTH, rajveer-naina in LRL, even tia-ranveer in remix - but again, my interest in them was limited to their story onscreen...i didnt care so much abt the actors - barring rajeev khandelwal (another personal fav
but then came MJHT...mjht was more like my revival to tv life after a good 2 yrs away thnx to office ...and SaJan rebuilt that same magic wot GHT had in kutumb...the two stories could not have been more different...one a love-hate marriage, the other abt college friendship developing (very slowly indeed
) into love...but the magic was just the same!! started watching SaJan story from talent parade track...the way samrat motivated gunjan - recognising her innermost fears n saying just the things she needed to hear, the way gunjan sang just for samrat n his reputation, cuz she knew wot it meant to him...it had me hooked! and within a span of 2-3 days, i watched all the SaJan scenes on YT...another first, never did it for another couple!
the association started with SaJan...but soon turned more n more about MoNaya also...and u r right, Mohit n Sanaya also at first seemed distant...u see any of the initial sbs / sbb coverage..it was all Sanaya given that mohit was shy in the beginning...but that equation changed with time...first glimpse was the gr8 magazine photoshoot...they shone together in that one...i couldnt see any Mohit / Sanaya - only MoNaya was visible!
and after that i joined the bangwagon cheering for MS being / getting together in real life...over time u cud see their relation developing ..the two getting more friendly n comfortable with each other with the peak ofcourse being those back-to-bacl sbs segments we got during the morena track - karvachauth, diwali n all...that was MoNaya at its BEST! at this stage it was like - how can these two NOT be together?!! they are so meant to be!
and it just kept getting better after that...after that i literally used to wait for MoNaya i/vs as much as i did for the show...and we got so many magical moments from sbs / sbb...mohits bday, valentine day dance
, sanaya's frenzy on signing autographs
, friendship day in paro avatar (will never forget the ever cliched - hum dost hai yaar
, MoNaya's cute dance on Sanaya's bday and the best - SaJan wedding n MoNaya confession...very honest n humble, just like MS!
everyone had speculated it for the longest of time..but even then their confession brought so much happiness...for them, for all the fans, including myself!
(thankfully this time, i had good accesss to ALL their offscreen i/v to
witness their beautiful journey, wotever limited part we saw...thnx IF
Monaya seem to belong together - Mohit seems to be one of the sweetest guy i have seen - very grounded n hardworking too...he didnt start off well, but he worked hard n it paid off...he improved immensely over the course of mjht and it was there for all to see...n for all his success in mjht, it hasnt gone to his head...he knows wot mjht was to him and is ever grateful for that...
and Sanaya, wot do say, is there anything i dont like about her? dont think so...she's one bindass person...she's a star yet she's also the girl-next-door - thats the best thing about her...she's cool, she's funny, incredibly pretty, a phenomenal (n might i say, very underrated) actress and even a more beautiful person - yet she seems completely unaware - she doesnt seem to have even the slightest air abt her success or her amazing personality... u see this in the way she speaks to ppl, the way she treats them - be it her co-stars, or ppl from the set, ppl from sbs bugging her for i/vs - she treats them all with the same warmth! one of my fav features on her was during the last days of Mjht, sbs/ sbb had a bit on her feeding stray dogs, cats on the mjht sets...that was just wonderful to watch...she really has so much love to shower, its incredible! i adore her as an actress and i love her even more as a person - a true ROCKSTAR!
oh good god! i realised i have just rambled on...like literally...but i couldnt help, ur post made me so SO nostalgic...ended up reminiscing my entire journey from GHT to MoNaya...
i adore both the couples...they are the only ones who had managed to affect me so..but as i said, m glad they did cuz it always brought a smile on my face...thank you gauri-hiten, mohit-sanaya - love u guys, god bless!
and now a HUGE THANK YOU to u as well...for making this post(s), for reminding of those wonderful days n times..of the small pleasures of seeing two people together n happy in their lives...
loved wot u have written for Gauri, for Sanaya and for the two couples...instead of going into details (m sure u have had enuf already
) i will just say, a big fat I AGREE to all that u said abt the two!! as u said, their journeys have been very similar and they have both made me equally happy...infact, when i heard MoNaya's confession, the first thing that i remembered was GHT...the only other onscreen couple i wished to be together for real and who were...and the same wish coming true second time around was unbelievable! it was like party time again...
the pics are just so awesome...Gauri and Sanaya - both beauties! and GHT / MoNaya pic just make go
and the pics are so well matched...very NICE!
must have been a helluva effort making these posts...and i love you for that...
hope u keep making such incredible posts...
*edit* PS: u know even after finishing, i feel there is so much more i cud write...god, u made so happy with this post! but dont u worry, i shall control...
