Star One show Love Ne Mila Di Jodi had it all – revenge, drama and romance. Three brothers out to avenge their father’s death fall in love with their arch nemesis’ daughters. While they plotted to destroy them, love had its own plans!
The show launched in June 2009, and ran for almost a year. The series was quite loved for its fresh cast, pacy storyline and the chemistry between the couples. It starred Chandana Sharma, Gaurav Khanna, Perneet Chauhan, Karan Tacker, Dishank Arora and Simran Kaur in the lead roles.
Today, as part of our flashback series, let us tell you what the cast of Love Ne Mila Di Jodi is up to these days.
Chandana Sharma as Damini Gujral
The eldest among the sisters, Damini was a strong businesswoman. She was heartbroken to know her fiance destroyed her family by killing her father. Quite protective of her family, she soon took charge to support her sisters and mother. While she hated Prithvi initially, the two soon fell in love, realising how similar they were.
Chandana Sharma started her acting career with Just Mohabbat. She then went on to be part of shows like Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, Dhak Dhak in Dubai, Yeh Dil Chahe More. Her role in Love Ne Mila Di Jodi made her a popular face in the industry, however, she soon quit television. These days, she is seen in commercials.
Gaurav Khanna as Prithvi Saxena
Just like Damini, Prithvi too was the caregiver of his family. A loving husband, Prithvi treated Damini as an equal, and that made her fall in love with him.
After working in an IT firm, Gaurav Khanna moved to acting, and started by doing commercials. Before Love Ne Mila Di Jodi, the actor had starred in shows like Bhabhi, Kumkum, Meri Doli Tere Angana, Ardhangani among more. He is also remembered for his show Yeh Pyar Na Hoga Kam where he was cast opposite Yami Gautam. Khanna has also been part of shows like Byaah Hamari Bahoo Ka, Hazir Jawab Birbal, Laal Ishq, Tere Bin, Gangaa and Chandrakanta. He is married to TV actor Akanksha Chamola.
Perneet Chauhan as Avani Gujral
When the show started, Avani came across as a shy person. She falls for Sameer’s lies and gets pregnant. However, when he ditches her, she goes through a complete transformation, and emerges as a strong and independent woman.
Perneet Chauhan made her acting debut with Love Ne Mila Di Jodi. Post the success of the serial, she has been part of projects like Miley Jab Hum Tum, Geet-Huyi Sabse Parayi, Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se, Saam Daam Dand Bhed and Yam Hai Hum among more. The actor is also active in the theatre circuit.
Karan Tacker as Sameer Saxena
Quite a charmer, Sameer always had his way with women. He lies to Avani that he is her childhood friend, and manipulates her. When he dumps a pregnant Avani, his elder brother Prithvi rebukes him and gets them married. However, with time, Sameer falls in love with Avani, and through the course of the show, tries hard to win her back.
After a cameo in Rab Ne Mila Di Jodi, Karan Tacker made his big debut with Love Ne Mila Di Jodi. While Rang Badalti Odhani also went on to become a hit, it was Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai that made the actor a star. While he took a break from acting on the small screen, Karan has turned to hosting shows like The Voice, Halla Bol, Nach Baliye among more. He recently made his digital debut with Special Ops which got him raving reviews.
Simran Kaur as Roshni Gujral
The youngest of the Gujral sisters, Simran was an extrovert, and quite a diva. Pampered by her family, Simran used to always get what she wanted, and that led her to woo Varun, who did not show any interest in her when they met.
Simran Kaur’s role of Roshni in Love Ne Mila Di made her quite popular among the television audience. Soon, she went on to bag a prominent role in Na Aana Is Des Laado. She then surprised her audience by donning the role of a witch in Sony TV’s Anamika, where she played the titular role. Simran Kaur was last seen in Diljit Dosanjh’s music video Laembadgini.
Dishank Arora as Varun Saxena
Academically brilliant, Varun was the most sensible of the three brothers. He joined the Gujral business to shake its financial stability. However, Simran soon falls in love with him.
Dishank Arora made his debut with Love Ne Mila Di Jodi. He went on to star in shows like Punar Vivah, Kaisi Yeh Yaariaan, Ek Boond Ishq and Jiji Maa among more. Arora is also part of Rannvijay Singh’s Squadrann, and is associated with many adventure activities.
