Please Don't Make Saanjh and Arjun a Couple

Beyhadh - a promising show with a unique concept, stellar cast and brilliant production house, at least that's how it began.

The story revolved around Maya Mehrotra's love for Arjun Sharma. In all of the promos it was evident that the story was about Maya's passion (junoon) and her beyhadh love for Arjun, whether it be through burning down the Pandit's hut or bringing a cake in an ambulance to ensure that it reached on time. It was ALL about Maya and Arjun's love. Both Arjun and Maya's proposal scenes were never seen before on Indian TV and will forever remain in our hearts. Their marriage was, again, spectacular. Their chemistry was absolutely sizzling hot. Some scenes such as the Haldi and the Tattoo scenes can never be forgotten.

So where did Saanjh come into all this from and why? It was alright while Saanjh and Arjun were friends, still tolerable even after Saanjh expressed her love for Arjun. But why make Arjun and Saanjh a couple? Why show us so many beautiful scenes of Arya (Arjun and Maya) only to leave us with Saajun? Arjun had made it clear many times throughout the series that he had only ever loved Maya and considered Saanjh to be his best friend. At the beginning, Saanjh and Arjun had shared a fabulous friendship but changing that into love has spoiled their previous "pure" friendship. The makers have once again proved that "ek ladka aur ek ladki kabhi dost nah reh sakte" (a boy and a girl cannot remain friends).

Each and every poster, montage and promo till date has shown Arya as a couple. Most of the audience feels cheated as they were expecting a different story to the ones regularly seen on TV. 

By showing Saanjh-Arjun together, the makers have made the show, which had the potential to go on to be pivotal for Indian Television, predictable, mundane and unenjoyable. If Saanjh and Arjun were going to come together and get married then why stretch the story so much? This would be an extremely disappointing end as Beyhadh was supposed to be an unconventional show that would break many stereotypes of Indian Television. By joining them, it would prove that even the most unique plots and storylines succumb under pressure.

It is clear that the majority of the audience is not enjoying the current track of Saanjh and Arjun's romance and upcoming wedding. Due to this, TRP ratings of the show, as well as views on YouTube have been consistently dropping and are now reaching all-time lows. Many ardent fans have now stopped watching the show.

It is the request of many fans that the lead couple of the show, Arjun and Maya, be reunited. If not, then at least it should be ensured that Saanjh and Arjun do not become a couple.
