Star Plus is going all guns blazing these days and for a while now where three of its shows – Anupamaa, Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin, and Imlie are always in the Top 5 and more oftenly in the Top 3 as well. And while a few others may not be clocking the same numbers otherwise, they still enjoy a huge and loyal fanbase. Mehndi Hai Rachne Waali is the prime example of that indeed. The show is one of the most popular shows online and all the more on out chaskameter, which you can read about here.
The show stars Sai Ketan Rao and Shivangi Khedkar aka Raghav and Pallavi in lead roles and one of the primary reasons is the unconventional love story it portrays. The show’s producer Sandiip Sikcand has been very active with the show’s proceedings over time now and even shares special details as and when possible. Marking this Sunday with a special treat for the fans of the show, Sikcand went on to share a never-seen-before set of videos which was the look tests of Rao and Khedkar. Just like his caption mentioned, Rao’s Raghav seems so different than how it actually went on to be in the episode.
His caption read, “So here is a special insight for all you lovely #mehndihairachnewaali fans. Sharing with you the two look test clips of @saiketanrao and @khedkarshivangi – these are the tests that got me my Pallavi and Raghav Rao. So enjoy and see your favourites like you have not seen before. Initially Raghav Rao’s character was a lot different than what its now…. and yes, Sai and Shivangi never shot the look test together. Also a BIGGG thank you to all the fans, groups and all the viewers who have made these 6months so amazing. THANK YOU. So keep loving, keep watching, keep sharing your views and DONT BELIEVE ANY RUMOURS. Thank you. Jai Mata Di”-
As the caption also highlighted in the end, where Sikcand talked about ‘not believing in rumors’, it was addressed to the set of strong rumors that were surfacing for a while now about the show going off-air. There was a strong buzz indeed that the show is going off-air owing but Sikcand refuted all that speculation.
