Getting ready…

4 Lions team shooting for IPKKND

Maan,Nissar,Gul, Anand,Rohini and Barun at the IPKKND shoot

As we get ready for the launch off our new show Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, which goes on air on Star plus at 8 PM next Monday, on 6 June 2011, things are really, really hectic on all fronts.

The expectations from this show are very high and due to a series of unfortunate events, we have been under a lot of pressure to deliver the goods. But all in all the show is looking good, the actors and technicians have all done a fabulous job and we hope that it all pays off.

Comparisons to our previous show, GEET are bound to happen but we don’t quite see what the fuss is all about. What is strange is that the very people who loved us for giving them a show like Geet are now somehow feeling very betrayed that we have started producing a new show. People are coming out into the streets claiming that Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon is a copy of Geet, even before it has started. What is the matter? A love story is a love story is a love story. Boy meets girl-boy loses girl-boy gets girl… Isn’t that what all love stories are all about?

Anyway, without spoiling our mood and yours just let us say that Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon is going to be full of surprises for all of you. The hard work, sweat, blood [quite literally] and tears of the past eight months is going to be presented before you on your television screens next Monday at 8 PM. Support us, spread the word and watch it next week and tell us what you think.

  1. I HOPE ALL UR HARD WORK TURNS GOLD,I DONT FEEL THAT GEET IS BETRAYED AT ALL…..U GUYS R THE BEST……DO CONTINUE THE SAME WORK AS ALWAYS…..GOOD LUCK…..MY PRAYERS R ALWAYS WITH U GUYZ..

  2. Yes dear..

    I completely agree with you.. I hope Nissar and Team will be able to bring the magic in this show too.. I am in US so i won’t be able to watch the show but I will tell all my friends and relatives in India to watch the show and bring up the TRP’s.

    All the best guys!

    Love,

    Faby

  3. I just want to ask one thing, why does every love story in ur shows starts with hate, the guy hates the girl and doesn’t want to see her face n the same guy gives her job, n still hates her :O

  4. Good Luck for your Show, I know after a lot of hard work you guys are excited to launch your new show and expect everyone’s blessings during the day of your launch, but it would have been better GHSP wasn’t mentioned here where you wanted to discuss the opening of your new show. Adding more, parents never compare their 2 babies, no matter what outsiders think or say…..for them both of their kids are precious and should get equal amounts of attention…..Same like that, for you guys as parents of GHSP and new parents to IPKKND should get EQUAL attention.

  5. First of all, all the best for your new show. Promo is good. We willl definately watch your this show also. The only request is please don’t shut GEET. Geet is totally different from all other shows like saas bahu etc. We will watch this show also as it will be aired at different time. Once again all the best for your show

    thanks

    Neelam

    • New show is coming its o.k but dont end our show GEET we are addicted to this show…it becomes part of our life…if you will end GEET no one will be interesting in your new show…I mean no GEET fan…

  6. All the best for ur new show…..hope ALLAH pays u for ur hard work…but plz dont take GEET away from usss,please, this is 1 serial which has not touch only our heart but our soul, ……..hundreds of shows may come in the future but i dont think any of them will be as special to us as geet, we maybe will really really really like the show but geet will be always our GEET, very very very veyr special……….i know sme day GEET will have to end and end it in such a way tht when we remember GEET it brings only smile n good memories n we keep on watching it again n again, but plz it is too earlier ,dont end GEET now…….thanks and best of luck for ss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon……Ending with lots and loads of LOVE for Gurmeet aka Maan and Drashti aka Geet….Love u both loads.

  7. All the best for you new show. Regarding comparisons to Geet, well yes promos remind me of Geet, esp the characterization of male lead. But that said, I would give the serial a fair chance. Geet fans have nothing against the new show.

    The only request I have is please dont ignore Geet. Plz pay attention to its plot,content and story. The serial can still go a long way. So while I am happy that you r starting a new show and hope that it does well, at the same time I would request you to invest a bit more of your time and resources in Geet too, so that it may at least be logical.

  8. Congratulations for your new show! I would surely watch it as I really like Sanaya Irani. Hope it does well! Yes all love stories are more or less same, it is treatment that differs. Like others,I too am a Geet fan and hope you would have something intersting in store for it too. There are many stories we have been waiting for since a long time, Maan’s past, his parents,Sameera… Hope you bring them after current track gets over.

    So all the best show for your new show and hoping to see many good things in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon as well as in Geet.

  9. This article is very much needed.there was alot of discussion on this show and many fans are feeling that lionsfilms is bringing the same concept of geet once again like old wine in a new bottle.All this happened as the story of the show was out through indya.com before its on air.
    As per the article,the concept of Is pyar ko kya naam du? had similarities with geet like the female lead joins the office of male lead which happened in geet.The article said that the show would have fights,hatred,attraction and love as leads work together.The same thing happened in geet.Geet had an social element of men taking dowry and running away after marriage.And in the new show also the female lead will raise her voice against dowry in her sister’s issue.And also there was disappointment regarding the male lead in the show among fans .No doubt Barun is a good actor but loyal fans of Sanaya-Mohit want Mohit opposite sanaya.So such reasons are making loyal fans angry.
    Nowadays,all shows are just behind one concept of leads opposite to each other in their character.Hatred,fights and then love.i just wish best of luck for the show and expect that this show wouldn’t come under the category of a above such shows.Viewers need innovative ,creative and fresh concepts giving a feeling that they have never seen before.

  10. ALL D BEST 2 D TEAM, WITH ICONS LIKE MAAN, NISSAR, GUL, & OTHERS AM SURE IPKKND WILL BE A RUNAWAY SUCCESS. S OFCOURSE COMPARISONS WILL SURE ARISE BUT AM CONFIDENT U WILL LIVE UP TO IT. ALL FIVE FINGERS R NOT EQUAL, SO DOES NOT THE IDEAS OF TWO DOCTORS, TEACHERS AND INDIVIDUAL AGREE. HENCE NOT TO WORRY. EACH ARTISTE HAS HIS/HER OWN TALENT AND WITH THE RIGHT GUIDANCE WILL MAKE WAVES.. A HUMBLE REQUEST PL DONT STOP GHSP…. AND IF OUR SCHEDULES KEEPS US FREE AT 8 WILL FOR SURE WATCH D SERIAL.. ALL THE BESTO

  11. i respect u all. n hope ur new show will be famous too…bt plz dont stop our favorite show geet..n i also believe that ipkknd isnt a copy of geet at all..i know ur team have talent n we will get a new fresh story.all d best !

    thanks
    sabrina

  12. hey. no complaints…just wishing you all the best for your new show….
    and just that gradually evry1 will understand that you need to give attention to a newbie..as you gotta get it on right track….you may have done that with your other shows as well….am a geet fan too…but i do understand that at last the trp’s are what matters and when they are tripping you guys gotta move on…and change is the motto of life…so i hope others understand as well…anyways all the best….comparisons are bound to happen as you rightly said…so hope you dun get demotivated…

  13. Looking forward to the show n specially excited for Sanaya’s come back on television.. Promos seems to be amazing and the story plot too is interesting n appealing.. Well i don’t watch Geet so no idea about that show, only used to watch MJHT on starone n will watch IPKKND for Sanaya… N yeah its true all the love story are almost same in either ways separation n then getting united etc…
    All the best to the show!!!

  14. Best of luck for new show but plzzzzzzzzzzzzz dont shut down geet.I cant live without it plzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  15. Hey Guys !!

    All the very best guys !! like all your other shows, i am sure this will leave a mark as well…
    The latest promo is so intriguing i cant wait to watch it ….

    So bring it on !! :)

    Loads of Love and Luck,
    Niha

  16. hei best of luck for ur new show but pls dont end GEET… pls at lst not before 3 more years, ds s one show which bring me back to watch hindi show n i just dont like it but love it n not only me its a request from all of MAANEETians, n another thing after ending GEET(which I dont want ever happen)… pls b back with another love story with GC n DD… GURTI s d best jodi ever

  17. i cannot wait!
    all the best barun, sayana, and everyone associated with 4lions and ipkknd!

  18. well 1st of all d best for ur new show. d show where MAAN, NISSAR, GUL, HRISHIKESH r 2gether , definitely its going to ROCK.

    abt GEET , so i think every time journey is interesting & nt d destination . in GHSP, d journey on MAAN n GEET falling in love was adorable with tremendous acting of actors justifying d character very well. whn they got there destination (they got married ) it turns Little unattractive .that was quite obvious for all d daily soap, specially in love stories.

    bt one think u guys should also accept that some twist & turn makes d story irrelevant . they were really unacceptable for public like Miscarriage & dev’s reentry tracks.
    if fans r saying that u betray us , so dont u think its bcoz of u. u only raised our hope. dont u think its only u who force us to say ” THIS SHOW IS DIFFERENT”
    i think GHSP is d only show where ppl r actually looking after show , i mean they r c’ming forward & asking for “who r d makers??” just to say thanks for making such a beautiful show. touching r heart .

    anyways i said a lot. u might nt b reading this much…lol
    ALL D BEST once again…….:-))))ve

  19. Iss pyar ke naam per , duniya nisaar ho
    Iss pyar ke naam per, khusiyan nissar ho
    Iss pyar ke naam per,armaanon ke gul khile
    Iss pyar ke naam per, rohsan chaar chand ho

    best wishes for the new show

    aur kya karen hum dua ke siwa
    Khudaa diljalon ki nazar se bachaaye
    khudaaa badzubanon ki zabaan se bachaaye
    khuda rohsan tumhara muqadder banaye

  20. I am so excited for this show!And I hope it would make you feel better to know that there are many Geet fans who DO support you, and I’m one of ‘em! :D

  21. congratulations for ur new show.. but we would love to see u all back to geet….its gud to work on new show..but jus for sake of this.. jisne itni kamyabi di uuse piche dalna acha nahi hai.. so please treat geet equally.. and that hume ache epis mile and geet ke 3000 epis mile..

  22. starting a new show is fine with me but it feels as though you guys will betray us by not doing justice to geet which is like a show which has a place in our hearts please dont do such injustices we wont be able to handle it

  23. I’m so jealous that you guys are putting so much effort into this new show. If this show really does well I will be gutted for Geet. Only if Geet could have continued doing as well as it did! Geet is so boring i can barely watch it but the sole reason i watch it for is GC & DD!!!!!

  24. All the best for ur new show……but GHSP remains mah all time fav8…wish u and ur team a very good luck..God bless….

  25. i am liking the promos and may be bcoz i like lead actress she played gunjan vv well and now this new luk also suits her best

  26. All the best for the new show..but please dont forget GEET..as GEET is the one show which makes me curious to know about it’s director and all crue members..so please pay attention to GEET also..GEET’s story become more interesting if u make some twists in it.. i apparently watching IPKKND too.. i found some of similarities between GEET and IPKND..and GEET has purely new concept , theme which is very Unique.. so pls keep moving geet as more interesting..

    Thank You

  27. i love both shows..n to ppl who feel “betrayed” wth?? seriously?? n a show like this on sp? i normally dont watch any sp shows..i love tht a show like this is on sp..theres alsways boring crap playing on sp…so much saas bahu crap tht can literally drive u to go to sleep right on ur couch lol but im really glad this show was launched cuz im loving it..and all of y’all’s hard work is paying off cuz u guys r rockin’ it ! Cheers! :)

  29. Hi

    I think your show is great! It’s fast moving, exciting and very differnt to anything I have have spotted on Star Plus. I think you have a real diamond on your hands – you are catching a younger audience and a Western one. I love Barun and Sanaya = great choices for leads! Well done for keeoing me glued to the screen!

  30. Excellent Show!!Full of Surprises…!! I am watching it from the starting episode and liked the way the story is progressing. Barun’s and Sanaya’s acting is Fab.Loved the whole cast and ofcourse all this shows the hardwork the crew has put in. All the Best and thnx for giving us such a nice show.

  31. Iss pyaar ko kua naam doon roxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    i think Geet is an entirely different show n ipkknd is different d concept,characters,story,situation n everything differs
    <3 geet n ipkknd both keep rocking

  32. I have never ever seen this kind of nice drama in my lifetime. Honestly speaking All of our family members love Arnav & Khushi. They are so beautiful. All performers are doing absolutely great.
    I THINK YOUR HARD WORK BEHIND THIS SHOW ALREADY PAYING OFF. I Pray for you & all the casts, members of this show. Wishing you all the Best.
    It’s not only about LOVE, But also about FAMILY VALUES, OUR CULTURES.
    Just don’t make it too complecated as other drama serials are please………

  34. Armaan is right, Geet & IPKKND are totally two different stories.For me, IPKKND is better than Geet, nowadays Geet is so boring.
    Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon is going on really good. Hope to see more. Love Sanaya & Barun means Khushi & Arnav.
    Keep up the good job.
    BEST OF LUCK> IPKKND.

  37. Dear creatives,
    Iss pyaar ko kya naam doon is a wonderful show and I watch it full interest… You make us curious by creating surprises which we rarely expect. I would like to congratulate the entire team that everyone in this show does a wonderful job. Just visit this website

    http://myeduniya.com/Entertainment/TvSerials/?SCID=483_Iss_Pyaar_Ko_Kya_Naam_Doon

    and you will be surprised to see how many viewers, fans and comments you have…

    Keep up the great job…

  38. Hi, I only just came across this website but just had to comment! I totally love IPKKND, it’s an awesome show and I love that it’s nothing like the usual Saas-Bahu nonsense and has it’s own style and identity. I love Arnav and Khushi, their relationship is so complicated and yet so simple, I love it and Barun is a complete revelation!! Sanaya too is brilliant but I love that Barun can manage to emote so well that he doesn’t even need to speak sometimes but we know what he’s going through.

    Congrats on creating such a wonderful show, I’m totally hooked, I live in England so can’t help with TRP’s (you really should let overseas veiwing figures count!) but I’ve watched every single episode and hope it continues for a long time!

    Oh I’ve written a bunch of scenes on Arnav and Khushi on India Forums, I guess inspired by it, here’s a link if anyone is interested!

    http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=2240859

    Really love the show and thanks for all the hard work that goes into it!!

  41. just awesome!!! only two requests: plz release the audio cd, the background score is simply superb!!!!! and an edited extended dvd version of the show after it ends!!!

  42. Hello!

    I would like to get in touch with Gul Khan and Arshad Khan.

    How do we do that?
    I would like to meet with you both. Also, now that LM is not there, how do we give feedback to you?

    Thanks!

  43. Not sure if this thought has crossed your minds, but I have a suggestion. Once IPKKND ends, please put out the entire series on DVD for sale. Me thinks that there are a lot of die-hard fans who’d like to buy them. Especially the overseas fans (like moi) :-) But woh kehte hain na, man proposes and God disposes…. LOL. So meri yeh suggestion hai, baki aap sab ke oopar depend karta hai. Lekin if tum logon ke dil mein hum jaise logon ke liye daya aati hai, to then puh-leez suniyo ji araj humari ;-D

  44. Hey Devi Maiya…make these brilliant listen to my pleas…

    Im an ardent and loyal follower of this show. This is the best Ive ever known. The actors, directing, framing of each scene and the brilliant……kudos to you all. But unfortunately for the past months we viewers have been a bit frustrated about the storyline and also the direction. No offence guys, I know its ur forte and maybe I should have not said this if I didnt love this show so much. The wonderful direction and mindblowing editing made took this show to our heart apart from the oh-so-gorgeous actors. This show has tremendous potential in itself and thus rightfully holds a crazy bevy of viewers around the world. But the show is suffering now..I dont know why but it is. The direction is good but it used to be mindblowing before. Again I know its ur thing to decide but only Lalit Mohan can do justice to the show. The man could spin magic and burn the screen even in the most ordinary situations. So please we are IPK’s die-hard fan and we want you people to plz plz plz do justice to our-your show and plz BRING LALIT MOHAN BACK TO IPKKND!!!!!! We badly need him….

    50 kgs of Lucknowi sweet jalebis from me if u can bring him back!!!!!!!!! Pakora promise.

  45. Hi Team,

    First of all I want to THANK U for giving us such a BRILLIANT show called IPKKND.. u cant even begin to imagine the way it has touched our lives & it has become part of our lives. U all are doing a FAB job out there – the entire team from Actors to Directors, Producers, Crew men,Spot guys etc etc., Amazing job…

    Yes the previous mnths story was drag.. MU was/is dragging way too much..but I did enjoy the comedy as well but somewhere down the lane I feel that we lost the initial magic of our SHOW. Would request you bring back our beloved show to us… This previous week our expectations have raised again bcoz we feel that the magic is slowly starting to show again.. hope it remains same going forward. U guys have amazing set of talented ppl out there in ur show be it actors or the PH.. so pls get OUR show back on track.

    Yes a suggestion – pls do release the DVD of this show when its ok to release as WE the ardent fans to love to own a copy of the show which is sooo close to our heart.

    THANK U!

  46. Hi Gul ji, i am a die hard fan of this show . My entire family loves dis and we even watch it repeated. And I Would suggest u dat u must open a website or blog or something officially FOR ALL D WORLDWIDE FANS so dat we suggest u some storylines and u may get choices to prefer dat suitablly go wid d story and run 4 many years, and ……… plz dont take away d essence of arnav’s attitude wid anjali and also plzzzzzzzzzzzzzz try to bring back LALIT MOHAN WITH ARSHAD KHAN and plz……… try to avoid dragging of scenes so dat even ur Trp’s GO HIGH AND MAY GOD BLESS UR ENTIRE TEAM AND CAST………..

  47. Hi , i am in deep relation wid dis show, plz bring lavanya nd Nk together, dat wud be a gr8 storyline

  48. ..hi….
    i just love this show.. u can see the huge fans…
    but right now…all fans have some problems with the looks of arshi… arnav needs to cut his hair- diwali look…..specially new clothes afterall he is ARNV SINGH RAIZADA…he should have bestest & stylist clothes….he is repating same clothes more than one year..HE SHOULD LOOK FROM HEAD TO BOTTOM LIKE ASR…. you guys spoiled his look..and yes new SHOES…plz bring back him…
    and khushi is beautifu….she is young..around 19 years old-according to story-..just try different type of dress-nw she is ASR’S wify……and yup..try diferent type of hair styles like pleats,pony,etc…frequently change looks of IPKKND team asper story line…it wil add the flavor….

    PROMOS…PROMOES…EVERY WEEK THEY SHOULD BE…IT MAY HELP TO RAISE TRP OF SHOW..IF U GUYS DNT HAVE TIME TO SHOOT IT THAN USE BEAUTIFUL SCENE OF SHOW.

  49. Ipkknd is the only show iam addicted to. This is probably b’cause of the interesting story line & Mainly because of the sizzling chemistry between Barun – Sanaya & also the perfect match of the actors to their respective roles..awesome…

    Also Iam proud that Barun & myself share our Birthday on the same day….
    Happy Birthday Barun in Advance……

    I don’t know if this message will reach him????? but however Wish him a very happy Birthday & a successful career ahead… Wish him all success… May god shower his blessings on him…….:)
