Eijaz Khan aka Kavya of Balaji Telefilms' Kkavyanjali reportedly said in an interview that he has a soft corner for his co-star Anita Hasanandani aka Anjali. He also didn't rule out a possible romance and a permanent relationship provided his ladylove said 'yes'. This is nothing new as far as romantic link-ups are concerned in telly-land. While some may call it an occupational hazard, Sandiip Sikand, creative director of Balaji Telefilms says, "When two lead stars are spending hours together on the sets, good times or bad, good moods or bad, they tend to share it with the closest person around them. So a relationship then is not completely ruled out between two people." Having said that, in today's times of creating publicity gimmicks Khan's statement could also have come in the wake of the news of his character being bumped off the show.
So though we don't how true are Khan's feelings for his co-star, given the chemistry they share on-screen (they recently won the Star Parivaar Best Jodi award), it couldn't be false either. Here we bring you some other telly couples who have been either romantically linked or who have taken their on screen relationship one step further and also the odd case when the relationship has gone sour.
Aamna Sharif and Rajeev Khandelwal On-screen pair: As Kashish and Sujal they had the TRPs going with their onscreen sparks in Kahin To Hoga till Rajeev aka Sujal bid good bye to the show.
Media murmur: Has been very strong and though they still like to maintain a "We are friends" stance, the occasional time they are spotted together at a party or dancing for an awards ceremony gets the tongues wagging again.
Current status: They are slated to do a TV show together.
Gauri Pradhan and Hiten Tejwani On-screen pair: They first acted in a soap commercial followed by a couple always at loggerheads in one of the Balaji soaps followed by their tearjerker love story in Kyunki…Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi.
Chemistry quotient: 10 on 10 as they are counted among one of TV's best looking couples Media murmur: Though there was always a hint of a relationship between the two, they managed to keep it under wraps for quite some time till they officially tied the knot.
Current status: They tied the knot and complete two years of matrimony next month. Shweta Tiwari and Cezanne Khan On-screen pair: As Prerna and Anurag in Kasauti Zindagi Kay, theirs was the most poignant love sto ries till of course bizarre plot twists and turns ruined at all.
Chemistry quotient: A perfect 10 on-screen.
Media murmur: They loved, they lost, they hated each other – and the media lapped up every crack that developed in their relationship. ' Current status: While Shweta seems to be blissfully married with a daughter, Cezanne is dating another co-star. On screen, they continue to be as professional as ever.
