I feel that it is too soon for Kabir to have fallen for Neha. Anyway, we have yet to hear him admit as much.
I would understand that he sympathises with her and admires her guts and her deep and unwavering love for Rishi who clearly doesn't deserve her.
I agree with you that it takes away a little from his character if he has fallen in love with her practically overnight.
I always wanted Neha and Aditi to be two different people...as I wanted to see the struggle within Kabir when he begins to get attracted to neha...I wanted to see him fight hard against it in the effort to be faithful to aditi's memory..theirs may have been an arranged marriage but it does seem, from the photos at least, that they were happy together in the 10 months of their marriage...and, it;s been only six months since she died...or, is it four months of marriage and six months since she died?...the friend at the market place did say that Aditi got married 10 months ago and she didn't seem to have heard about the accident...it's so confusing!
Anyway, i'd like to hear Kabir denying harbouring any feelings for Neha other than that of sympathy and respect..even if Karan's words give him food for thought. I would like to see the attraction grow before he acknowledges his love for her. But, that's just me.
Btw, I loved the way the fire lit up his pupils at Karan's poser!
