‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon’ was a top rated show in 2011-12, and its popularity among the youth had turned its lead actors Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani into superstars. The show went off air in November 2012, disappointing millions. Hotstar since its launch, has offered curated episodes of the show in its library and the fans have flocked to it.

Youth heart-throb, Arnav played by Barun Sobti, says, “It never felt like the show ended. I kept receiving feedback and mails from fans as they continued to watch the previous season on hotstar. The entire team of the show is back for this series and we hope to recreate the same magic.”

Sanaya Irani says, “I am confident of the success of ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon Ek Jashn’. It’s not only the fans, even we are all glad to be back on the show. I think hotstar’s popularity among the youth will do well for the show and vice-versa.”
