I know I am not to post topics comparing shows, but the way Anjali is shown, I can't help it.
IPK has Anjali who is clingy and weepy , who emotionally blackmails, manipulates, and has all the family members dancing around her, indiscriminately picking up pills and offering her whenever she is in the frame, ( which is always, since we are talking of EXTENDED SCREEN SPACE, God help us!).

In the very next show we have Maanvi, battling a terminal disease without resorting to high-end drama.

The pregnant lady, for all these naatak, doesn't sport a baby-bump, whereas, the one with cancer goes bald!

Anjali clings to her sibling and is jealous if he spends a wee bit of time with his wife, whereas the latter stands firm in sending her sibling back to her spouse!

It should be noted that IPK was promoted as a love story, where as the other show is all about sibling love!

Before I get bashed for comparing, let me clarify.  I love, or rather loved IPK, and actually started watching the other show by sheer accident, since it comes right after IPK. But the way they have handled cancer is commendable, no melodrama, at the same time, not trivialising it either, whereas IPK's handling of a normal, beautiful experience like pregnancy sets your teeth on edge!

CVs, please, this is a wake-up call!  With such powerpacked talents, esp in the leads, (and by that I DON'T MEAN ANJALI!) please, please do some reality check.  Don't give us such unpalatable characterisations, even if it means the said actress gets an opportunity to show her histri(yawn)onics!

Give us back the show we loved!!

you cannot compare two ppl's outlook on life, be it pregnancy or cancer

the difference is that anjali's character had the same traits even before her pregnancy... she was clinging to her absent husband, brother and religion...arnav and anjali have emotional issues based on their past, i for one am glad that the show has moved past shyam and is focusing on the aftermath of his actions

agree 100 %.

cvs shud pl use the talent of sanaya barun. Khushi arnav have been repeatedly voted the best jodi becoz of their amazing chemistry. we need to hv more of them in the show. Not necessarily always passionate scenes. They can be having normal talks and understanding.
