Not many would have expected that upon launch Tujhse Hai Raabta would go on to become the massive success it did. Having launched almost three years ago, the show starring Reem Sheikh, Sehban Azim and Poorva Gokhale in lead roles the show went on to attain immense success and in it's early days, was a constant member of the Top 5 or Top 10 every week.
Now, after a glorious run, the show is all set to go off-air and will air its last on 31st July 2021.
Talking about it with ETimes TV, Azim said, "The show has given me a lot and it has been a beautiful journey. Although I was playing a cop, I got to play many varied roles disguised as different people in the show. In these times, for a show to run for three years, is something that we are all proud of. I am happy that although TV is predominantly a woman-centric medium, our show centred around three characters Malhar, Kalyani and Anupriya. In my earlier shows, I may have played parallel leads, but this show gave me an opportunity to play a lead role and it had many layers to it. I will miss shooting and bonding with my team members, specially Reem, because she is a good friend. A year back, when she was planning to quit, I was shocked, but thankfully, things worked out.”
He added, “During the show, I got many offers for web shows and other projects, but decided to continue with the show because the character is very dear to me. Despite a three-year run, I never got tired of playing Malhar. There was something interesting I discovered every day in the character.”
On her part, Sheikh said, “Raabta was made with a lot of love and my co-actors are like my extended family. I am proud that it ran for three years because a lot of people tried to discourage us, but we stood strong. I will miss everything about the show and the fact that I won't be Kalyani Rane anymore. The bond between Kalyani and Malhar was so special. The show gave me lovely friends like Sehban, Poorva di, Rajat Dahiya and Shagun Pandey.”
