There are only a few shows in the Indian TV industry that have not managed to attain a cult status over the years but also multiplied that into huge success and sequels and a lot more.
Many shows will come and go but seldom will any be able to make an impact like the Varun Sobti and Sanaya Irani starrer Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon did. Spawning two sequels and a web format show, it continues to be one of the loved shows of all time and probably the most loved show in the past decade.
And yesterday was a special day for one and all as the cult show completes 10 years. The fans are celebrating it and leading lady Irani, while a day late, went on to post an amazing and heartwarming note about the occasion and also thanked several names. Her post read, "Celebrating 10 beautiful years of IPKKND. I know I’m a day late but yesterday just went in interviews, which I hope you all enjoyed. So here goes a lot of thank you’s are due. Let’s start from the top. Thank you @gulenaghmakhan for being the only one who believed that I could play Khushi.
