E is for… Ego

Arnav paused on his way to his room and scowled. The giggles coming from NK’s room were a sure sign that Khushi was visiting again. She claimed to come over to see Payal but it seemed to him at least that she spent more time with NK than anyone else. Arnav began towards his room again when one voice stopped giggling and began singing.

It’s too big, it’s too wide It’s too strong, it won’t fit It’s too much, it’s too tough

Before the last line had been sung Arnav stormed into the room. ‘What the…?’

Khushi was stood on the bed her arms held up in the middle of a dance move while NK sat on the sofa looking up at her adoringly. She quickly hurried down from the bed and began smoothing down her dress.

'Khushi what the hell were you just singing?'

'Erm… I…' Khushi looked at NK nervously, hoping he would save her since her mind had gone blank at the sight of Arnav.

‘Ego by Beyonce, Nanav you must have heard of it. I played it for Khushiji and she loves it!’

Arnav ignored NK and walked closer to Khushi, lowering his voice so NK couldn’t hear what was being said. ‘Do you even know what those lyrics mean Khushi?’

Khushi’s eyes squinted and she shook her head lightly.

'Think about it Khushi.'

As if on cue, Khushi’s mouth opened in shock and her eyes widened.

'You don't want to be singing that song to NK. Trust me. Although… you can sing it for me anytime you like,’ Arnav added with a smirk before he walked backwards out of the room, singing as he went.

He talk like this ‘cause he can back it upHe got a big ego, such a huge ego You  love his big ego

NK quickly shut the door behind Arnav and sighed in relief. ‘He didn’t realise you were singing about him did he?’

D is for… Damn It!

'Damn it!' Arnav dropped the nail and sucked his thumb, trying to ease some of the pain. It was the third time in the last hour he had hurt himself but he refused to accept defeat. 

Khushi and Di would laugh at him now after the speech he had given about being able to put together a simple crib without any help.

He took a deep calming breath and read the instructions once again. It had looked so simple at the beginning but the wood and nails in front of him were nowhere nearer looking like a crib than they had been two hours ago.

He would probably still be trying to put it together when Khushi gave birth in a month’s time.

'Damn it!' He sighed and shook his head. Useless as they would undoubtedly be, he needed their help. Three heads were better than one right?

'NK! Akash!'

C is for… Colour

Arnav smiled as he disentangled his black silk shirt from where it had caught onto an embellishment on Khushi’s turquoise and pink anarkali.

Di had once accused him of having a wardrobe full of black but nothing could be further from the truth now. 

The large wardrobe was now bursting with colour: reds, greens, yellows, purple and blues sparkled and shimmered in the light shoving and pushing for space against an ever diminishing army of black, navy blue and grey.

Khushi had filled his previously grey existence with a riot of colours, making every day more beautiful than the last.

B is for… Bikini

'Arnavji, what is this?’ Khushi held up the offending item between her thumb and forefinger.

'It's a bikini Khushi,' Arnav replied without looking up from his book. 'For the beach.'

'You want me to wear this? In public? Hai Devi Maiyya, I might as well go out in my underwear!'

Arnav rolled his eyes; immune to Khushi’s dramatics after almost a year of marriage.

'You want me to wear this… thing in front of other people, other men? No, I refuse!’ Khushi threw the bikini at Arnav and began to storm out but was caught before she reached the door and spun back into his arms.

'Whoa! Who said anything about other men? Nobody is going to be looking at my wife in her underwear… I mean in a bikini! I booked a private beach, Khushi. Just you… and me.’

'Oh… I see. Well that's… I guess that's… okay then.'

A is for… Automatic

'It's red!'

'Very observant.' 

'Can we go for a drive?'

'I was hoping you'd say that.'

The engine roared as Arnav accelerated out of the gates and onto the long road that connected their house to the rest of Delhi.

Khushi examined the smooth leather interiors carefully for faults in case her usually shrewd husband had been extorted by a cunning salesman.

'Notice anything?' 

Khushi felt his hand land on her knee, heavy and warm through the fabric and she looked up at him in surprise.

'It's automatic!'

'Very observant,' Arnav replied huskily as he began to caress her thigh.

Random!

-Why does Arnav not touch Babuji’s feet with Khushi but only Buaji’s?

-Notice how Akash has gone from saying ‘Khushiji’ to just ‘Khushi’.

-Arnav and Khushi are both so bipolar. It makes the transition to comedy scenes easier for the writers I suppose but their feelings about each other and the situations they’re in are always so inconsistent.

-I’m still waiting for the day when Arnav will do something really bad (the things he’s done before like mention her parents and wish he’d never met her were bad enough in my opinion) that Khushi actually holds a grudge against him. Otherwise I think we’ll never move on properly from this phase of their relationship that they’ve been stuck in for over a year.

-I’m liking Payal more now since she didn’t back away from Khushi just because Akash is being a dick again. I get his point, but you’d think he would have learnt to listen to his wife and have a mature conversation after the Bubbly incident.

-NK is still one of the best things that happened to this show.

-Where is Mamaji?! Is he ever going to come back?

-Even after seeing the consequences of keeping secrets once why isn’t Khushi telling her family about Shyam being revealed? What purpose does she think it serves?

-I don’t hate Anjali. She’s always been very dependent on Arnav and Shyam so at least she’s being consistent.

Erm… Well that was just… odd. I’m going to pretend it didn’t happen since the other Teri Meri sequence was so perfect.

Guys, you have a real plot for once! you don’t need to insert these random scenes just to ensure that some fans get the ‘Arshi’ scenes they’re desperate for.

I’m sure lots of people did like it but it just didn’t really work for me.

I’m so impressed with the increase in intelligence shown by the writers and Khushi and Shyam in the past few episodes. Also having Payal notice Shyam’s continuing interest in Khushi and trying to intervene is probably their way of heading off a potential repeat of the Daljeet-leaving-situation with Deepali.

All signs seem to point to Arnav misunderstanding Khushi again but at least this time he’ll have a valid reason for doing so. Then hopefully we can finally move on to Arnav and the Raizadas finding out the truth about everything.

Super busy so random thoughts:

-If Arnav once again mistrusts Khushi about her relationship with Shyam I don’t think he can redeem himself this time.

-However, I do want Khushi to hold a grudge or some sort against Arnav. I would have absolutely loved it if it had been at the time he spoke about her parents but I will accept if this time Arnav hesitates slightly (just hesitates mind you not actually believes Shyam) about vocalising his belief in Khushi and she takes it badly.

-Daljeet’s an actor, she wants to further her career and the role of Anjali thus far has been stagnant. If I can accept Barun doing a movie to do the same thing then I fully accept Daljeet’s decision. I will miss her but the new actress looks like she would be a good fit for the character.

-I’m so bored by this kidnapping track. No that doesn’t mean I just want Arnav and Khushi playing happy families all the time. I want a track that holds my interest and doesn’t insult my intelligence. First their excuse for nonsensical tracks was IPL, then Barun’s leave and soon it will be that the new Anjali needs time to adjust.

-If Shyam wants Arnav to die a natural death why not just withhold his food and medicines for a few days? Arnav would probably go into a coma and although there would be questions about why Arnav hadn’t eaten in days it would still be ruled a natural death.

-I always wanted another character to question Khushi’s lack of relationship with Devi Maiyya recently and I had hoped it would have been Arnav but all this has done is prove once again just how oblivious the rest of the families really are to Khushi and her problems.

NK’s re-entry has been delayed for a week.

Possibly once all the kidnapping stuff is out of the way he’ll be back.

Karan Goddwani will confirm in 2 days time if he’s coming back to IPKKND

So I assume that means they’re currently in talks about his role and what he’ll be doing. Sooo happy! (Provisionally)

I still wish he hadn’t effectively been forced to say it because he’s in a life or death situation but it was still sooo emotional! I will never have enough words to describe it!

Instead of answering multiple asks about Barun’s absence I’ll just put everything I know here

Note: Once again I don’t work for the show in any capacity so I have no extra knowledge about anything, everything here is the most accurate information I could gather from all the numerous sources.

Barun’s entire film shoot is 40 days (sometimes films go over of course) and for the past month he’s been shooting 8 hours a day for IPKKND and 4 for his movie. He’s currently on leave from the show completely but only for 11 days.

This doesn’t mean Arnav won’t appear on screen at all because there’s flashbacks and he’s also reportedly shot many close-ups for them to edit into the episodes.

As for Barun leaving the show completely, that’s just not going to happen. I love the guy and I have faith in his acting abilities but we all know Main aur Mr Right is never going to be a Superhit. Depending on its budget (which seems low at the moment) it could always do well but a small film like this doing well is nothing compared to a big budget film like Pyaar Impossible doing terrible business. The film to me seems unoriginal and doesn’t even have the backing of well-known stars (it was a poor choice for his film debut in my opinion) and so most probably it will just disappear and be forgotten in the deluge of films released every year.

However Barun might be noticed slightly more in the film industry by doing this film and in that way get offered more roles, which might have been his incentive for signing the film. That will take time though and I don’t think for even one second that Barun would leave a show which has propelled him to such high levels of popularity in such a short time. Unless he has another higher budget (or more well known produced) film already lined up it would be the height of stupidity on his part to leave the show.

On another note: Slightly premature since the film hasn’t finished filming or post-production or found a distributor yet but we should all definitely arrange meet-ups to go and watch the film when it’s released. I’ll definitely be watching the film at the cinema but instead of forcing an uninterested friend to go see a bad film it would be much more fun to watch with people who can appreciate just why I wanted to see the film and then go somewhere to discuss just how terrible it was and just how amazing Barun was.

Is that something people would be interested in? Obviously my personal meet-up I’d be arranging in Birmingham (England) because that’s the closest big city to me but you should all arrange meet-ups locally too! (Stay safe though! Arrange to meet in public, let people know where you’re going… etc.) I’ll think about it more when the time gets closer but do let me know if you’d want to do something like that.
