The truth of the current situation, my dear is that the kind of popularity and fan following Drashti and Gurmeet enjoy, your actors do not. IPK is a copy of Geet-as told by the the PH itself. Despite the copy, they have not been able to create a craze as high and far spread as Gurti because neither their acting nor chemistry is as half as good as Gurti. They do have a fan following in ppl who like 4 lions shows and those who havent watched Geet as that was on star one which caters to the youth and ipk has wider viewership being on SP and therefore, higher trps. But their fan following is no where close to Drashti and Gurmeet. An article on ipk or its leads/actors , even though its ranked the No 1 show on IF, attracts less than 500 comments whereas a single article on anything related to Drashti today attracts over 1000 comments! Gurmeet is similar. Their number of fans are twice as compared to the No 3 highest celeb and 4 times that of Barun on IF and they have been ruling the rankings for 2 yrs now. They were ranked top 2 within 4 months of Geet going on air. How long has IPK been on air-almost a year and still not been able to reach the top? tsk tsk..and yet you compare!
Geet was a break through show with an ardent and loyal fan following. The same fan following keeps Drashti on No 1 despite her not doing any show today and has Gurmeet's new TV show open with a fab trp of 2.6. It was their pairing together that translated into a "to die for " onscreen chemistry coupled with great acting chops, dancing skills, superb looks and most important hard work and dedication that has made them a fav not only of fans all over the world but even of the directors, technicians, and producers who have worked with them. The DOP of geet and now IPK, hrishikesh gandhi, rates them as the best actors he has ever worked with-and he HAS done plenty of shows. Similar views have been shared by the PH-4 lions.
All this is not to say that tomorrow, actors other than Drashti and Gurmeet will not be ranked No 1 and 2. There will come new shows, new actors, new found popularity and who knows, Barun might become No 1. But today, thats is not the reality. Would be best if you remove the blinders from your eyes and see the truth for what it is.
That is the power of my one sentence . You have to use scores of them to open my eyes and I incited you with just one
