^Bacha, first I don't think RaHi fans have "turned" into VeeNi fans. At least not me. RaHi was, is, will always remain first preference. But if CVs aren't serious about them then apna khoon jala ke faida? We have repeatedly said over and over again that VeeNi, MiChi, ViChi all is fine as long as it's RaHi in the end. We are giving CVs free reign to churn up a beautiful story for RaHi, make it realistic by involving other people in if need may...just don't ignore, forget and sideline RaHi.
Now to the topic - I believe that Panchi has moved on. There has been no mention of her feelings in S2 and like Ranveer said, she only looks at him as a best friend. Yes, I do believe (after all the initial hug craze simmered down) that we are reading TOO much into the hug. Notice how Panchi acted, leaving behind morale boosting clues for RV before her disappearance? Yeah, he means a lot to her and he means it as a friend only. So maybe, for now, RaHi are best friends only (keep giving us hugs/moments like those, I don't if they remain best friends till eternity
The hints were subtle but they were clear that MiChi is very much on the CVs mind. Though about VeeNi...I'm not sure. But let's just assume that Friday's episode was full of hints. Remember Panchi's reaction? "Ye kon nayi character hai? Aur ye Nonu ki partner kaise ban gayi!" It could mean that from Panchi's POV, Rukmini could be a hindrance in RaHi. On the other hand, RV said that he wishes Panchi gets a special guy. But then that hug happened and Chintu's expression. Let's just say that we are reading too much into THAT as well but one thing was clear, he had this kind of understanding on his face that yeah...you don't find friends like these
What I believe the course of things is going to be is that MiChi will very much happen. And VeeNi. Now, CVs could either pave a path where RaHi will struggle to maintain their so close best friendship while going on with two other people. OR! Maybe this time around, new characters will only act as catalysts to them realizing their worth. Jo bhi ho, struggle is in store for us.
WDS keeps saying that we are jumping TOO fast to conclusions and he says this in response to our cries that RaHi aren't meant to be. Seeing Friday, they have definitely something in store for RaHi. Ultimate best friendship or a couple, I dunno. But as they say, it's the journey which counts not the destination. So as long as the journey, despite the destination, is as beautiful, real, magical like RaHi are with its own share of cruel twists and turns, I'm happy. I fell for the friendship...it's not my loss if they aren't a couple. It is
my loss when at the end, that friendship isn't retained. Couple or not.
WOW! Wrote a lot and wrote WHAT NOT! Sorry!
