Well, the show and the lead pair is loved so much that even now they want to see Barun Sobti paired opposite Sanaya Irani, and not any other actress! It has to be recalled that the makers and the channel had brought the show back, but had paired another actress (Shivani Tomar) opposite Barun. Fans refused to accept the show as they wanted Sanaya back, and the show soon went off air!
