I'm European (French and I live in the Netherlands) and I discovered the show because the cable tv company gave me a free month subscription to Star Plus. I think it was the British/International version of Star Plus because the show aired at 8pm European time and it was with English subtitles. I don't have the free Starplus anymore but I still watch the show everyday on the Internet (usually twice: first time without subtitles as an afternoon break around 5pm just after it has just aired in India, and a second time with subtitles in the evening).

I'm not gonna lie: the very first time I watched the show I wasn't interested in understanding the story: I was just thinking "damn this guy looks handsome!"...[glued to the tv]..."extreeemely handsome!"... "the girl is really pretty too"... "wow actually all characters in that show look really good"..."Interesting clothes and make-up"... But then I got sucked in in the story and even watched the previous episodes on youtube... 

There are things that can be frustrating, like all the abuse/intimidation scenes ASR put Kushi through, the importance and the weight of the families on the couples' relationships, the lack of communication between couples and the impossibility of a passionate Hollywood kiss. But the show just stays so addictive! It's a great way to relax and 'escape' from daily life, but it doesn't feel like a waste of time like American shows. 

It has 'opened my world' in many ways: I've started watching Bollywood movies and downloading Indian music thanks to that show. I also bought a book "teach yourself hindi" and I'm glad I can understand simple dialogues during the show. I'm actually waiting for Shyam to come back because he speaks very clearly compared to Arnav who doesn't articulate distinct syllables! 

I'm pretty sure real life in India has nothing in common with Indian tv shows and Bollywood, but I'm glad I could learn a few things about Indian culture (from a newbie / European perspective) thanks to this show and reading this forum!

i have always been fascinated with the reach and craze of our show around the global and had this question from a long time in my mind..

Is there anyone out there who doesn't know Hindi, doesn't have Indian roots and the show doesn't telecast in their country and still watches the show??

If yes! then how did u find the show? how did u know that such a show existed??

i don't know how but, i was just watching some old scenes of Maan and Geet and accidently i clicked on one of Arshi's love scene. i think the scene took place at the beginning of the show, where Arnav pulls Khushi's pearly dori and i got interested and now i'm a regular follower of IPKKND!
