Yesterday (June 18, 2018), Sony TV aired the much-awaited show, Dil Hi Toh Hai. Since the beginning, the show was in news for its content and cast. It was said that the show was the TV remake of Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. But Ekta Kapoor denied the reports and clarified that it's a family story.
But, as we saw the first episode, the show looked somewhat similar to the Bollywood film, K3G. Although the content was different (for obvious reasons), the characters and the sets looked similar to the film.
Similarities Between DHTH & K3G: Yogita Bihani & Kajol’s Characters
In K3G, the girl (Kajol) comes from a middle class family and is ambitious. She is also against marriage. Yogita Bihani's character on the show is also similar.
Karan Kundra & Shahrukh Khan’s Characters
Also, the hero (Shahrukh Khan) in the film was from a royal family, who took care of family business. He was attached to his family. In this show too, Rithwik (Karan Kundra) belongs to a royal family and is all set to take over the family business!
Bond Between The Lead Actors & Their Brothers
Another common thing in DHTH and K3G is the bond that the lead characters share with their brothers. The party look on DHTH reminded of K3G. Only difference is the nature of the characters - SRK's character was polite, respected girls, and never thought that love is waste of time, but Karan's character is totally opposite.
Fans Are Impressed With Karan Kundra
Meanwhile, the fans are completely impressed with Karan Kundra's look and his character Rithwik Noon. They took to social media to praise the actor.
