‘Jodha-Akbar’ is a love story, but the actors in this TV show — Rajat Tokas and Paridhi Sharma — don’t talk to each other in real life. So, what is the issue? Says a source, “Rajat feels he is senior to Paridhi and so, keeps away. Hence, they haven’t been able to break the ice. Even though they don’t communicate, they manage to shoot their scenes without any issues.”
This is not the only case on TV. There are other onscreen couples who do not get along in real life, but it hasn’t affected their work. Here are a few examples:
Simran kaur-Mudit Nayar (Anamika) Simran, who plays the title role, is an introvert. She keeps to herself on the set. “She may be reserved, but people feel she acts like a diva. Mudit and she just couldn’t strike a rapport. They don’t speak to each other once their scenes are over.”
Hina Khan—Karan Mehra ( Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai) Though the show has been running for over four years, the lead couple Karan and Hina are yet to warm up to each other. They’ve had no showdown over anything, yet they keep to themselves and don’t communicate even during breaks.
Sanaya Irani—Farhan Khan (Chhanchhan) Farhan had a tough time striking the right chord with Sanaya, which, in turn, affected their onscreen chemistry. He was eventually replaced in the show. Farhan had reportedly said that Sanaya was rude to him during their shoot.
