A remake of popular Bengali drama Kusum Dola, Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin presents the love triangle between Virat (Neil Bhatt), Sai (Ayesha Singh) and Pakhi (Aishwarya Sharma). Neil and Aishwarya’s love story may not have been successful on screen but the two found love in each other in real life. After dating for a few months, the two had a roka ceremony in January, earlier this year. The couple is set to tie the knot in December.
Talking about what made him fall for Aishwarya, Neil had told ET Times, “She is extremely dedicated and fun at the same time. That’s the kind of person I am, too. I am mad and focused. Both of us are like two extremes of the pendulum, striking a fine balance between the two traits. Besides, we have common interests — both of us are dancers. Look, it’s all about compatibility, love, and understanding with us. It’s all things love.”
Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Mein has been having a successful run on the TRP chart. As per the Broadcast Audience Research Council ratings, the show was on the second spot on week 9, behind Anupamaa.
