The makers of the popular daily soap have confirmed that Barun is indeed quitting the show, apparently to find work in films. Good luck to him!

While we are still upset that the hottie Barun Sobti is leaving Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, the makers have found a way to lift our spirits by roping in Viraf Phiroz Patel of Mahiway and Kismat fame for the role.

There is no doubt that Viraf will set our hearts racing, ‘coz he looks ‘oh-so-hot’ and sexy. The actor was last seen in Sony TV’s Mahiway as one of the leads and then in Kismat, where he captivated the audience with his suave looks and brilliant performance. Anyone and everyone who has seen these shows will certainly agree with us. But will he be able to deliver in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon? Will he and Sanaya Irani (Khushi Kumari Gupta) be able to evoke the same chemistry that Barun brought to the small screen? Now that’s something we’ll be able to answer only after we see them together.

Arnav Singh Raizada, who is an intense and complicated character, is arrogant and showcases very little of his romantic side. And that’s exactly what made him so adorable, no? His equation with Khushi initially bordered on love-hate until he came out of his shroud of denial and decided to marry her. Since then, the romance between them has made audiences go gaga. Giving Arnav a new face is a bold decision in terms of TRPs, as many ardent followers have complained and threatened to quit watching the show.

We think that Viraf is probably the best replacement for Barun. Giving him the benefit of doubt, we believe that Viraf will indeed raise the bar of the show. And just in case it doesn’t work, they can always end Iss Pyaar…, right?
