Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi promo: Shakti Arora comes back with a Cinderella story

The new show on Colors seems like a mix n’ match of several daily soaps rolled up together

The trailer starts with a sequence from childhood where Ishani is telling the story of Cinderella to Ranveer, who is washing her car. The next sequence pans directly in to their adult life. Ishani trips on her silver sandals and Ranveer played by Shakti Arora fixes it for her – what a fairy tale. But the reality is totally different.

This is Shakti’s comeback vehicle after his short stint on Zee TV’s Pavitra Rishta. The lead female actor is yet to be revealed. Wethinks the show is probably a blend of several daily soaps, why? Well isn’t it obvious?

When we first saw the promo, it reminded us about Sony TV’s show, Khoobsurat starring Soumya Seth and Rohit Khurrana, which was based on another fairy tale – Beauty and the Beast. And we all know the fate of that one.

Zee TV’s ongoing daily soap Do Dil Bandhe Ek Dori Se has a similar track, where the house help falls in love with the owner’s daughter and vice versa. Going by the promo, Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi also seems to run on a similar track. There are a few bits lifted from Priyal Gor’s off air show, Dekha Ek Khwaab as well, which was aired on Sony TV. If you remember, this show was based on the Princess Diaries.

We’ve so far seen about three resemblances to previous shows. Watch the promo and tell us if you agree with us.

    Absolutely. All serials have the same track these days. How goddamn boring. Before in all serials, the lead used to lose his/her memory or a very plain girl has a complete makeover to take revenge (Shikha into Samaira and Bani into Maya in MNB and BIDK)
    Now it is this servant, rich girl love story like Raghu and Shivani and this Ranveer and Ishani. Channel V is the best. Such amazing and different shows

  • Ananya Raghavan Iyer

    I agree with you, Sharon. This really is very run of the mill. Don’t they get tired with the same old concepts. Want a good show? Watch Sadda Haq and Paanch and get familiar with the amazing and very anti-hindi serial characters of Sanyukta and Roshni Kataria. Ranveer-Ishani is going to be a stupid and flop pair. What an unappealing promo.

  • Devika Rawat

    Stupid show! I hope they don’t become the next Raghu and Shivani and also there’s no Sumitra or any mumbo jumbo.

  • jyotika barjantiyaq

    With all due respect to Devika, Ananya and Sharon Naina
    You should give the show a chance and not be so judgmental. I think it will be amazing.

    Daily soaps suck! Want entertainment? Watch Cricket, Tennis, Football and other sports
