What Shall I Name This Love? is an Indian soap opera currently aired on channel STAR Plus. The show is a star-crossed love story presenting an interesting contrast of personalities entwined in a relationship swinging between love & hate. Khushi and Arnav have diametrically opposite ideologies. If Khushi believes in means, Arnav believes only in ends. Khushi's relationships are the most important to her, whereas Arnav believes all people come with a price and can be manipulated for one's benefit. As the story progresses, their love-hate relationship witnesses a series of dramatic conflicts. Arnav constantly tries to break Khushi's steadfast morals just in order to prove to himself that he can control everyone; Khushi on the other hand, always tries to follow her values & morals.

A Love Story Like No Other...
18 June 2012 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

"Such is the inconsistency of real love, that it is always awake to suspicion, however unreasonable; always requiring new assurances from the object of its interest." The above lines might summarize the bottom line of Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon (IPKKND)however words might fall short to describe the beauty and depth of the love story of Arnav Singh Raizada and Khushi Kumari Gupta. Love - hate stories have hit the Indian Film and Television industry but never before have we seen such a response to it.

Arnav Singh Raizada a.k.a ASR is your quintessential M & B anti-hero who comes across as ruthless and shrewd but is blessed with a heart of gold. No one managed to unveil the love in his heart except one woman, Khushi Kumari Gupta. Khushi is a woman with high moral values but likes to enjoy life and never lets the problems in her life get the better of her. They are as different as chalk and cheese but are in every way each other's better half.

IPKKND is the journey of discovery and unveiling's. It is Arnav and Khushi's journey to discovering true love. It is the unveiling of the ugly face of the world to Khushi and also the unveiling of a pure soul like Khushi to Arnav who had lost faith in humanity. It is the journey of a brother to save his sister from the clutches of a spineless villain alongside the unveiling of the high regard the love of his life has for him and his family. It is Arnav's discovery of him having the right to true love after his difficult life and to Khushi, it is the unveiling of the truth of her life.. The man who she reckons a beast is her handsome prince in reality.

IPKKND boasts of one of the most fabulous performance you will see, from the leads as well as the ensemble cast. Each character compliments the other and the end product is a show that will make history. Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani play Arnav and Khushi respectively. The actors have done other shows before but this particular show has taken their career to dizzying heights. Thir chemistry is electrifying and they have raised the bar of performance up several notches. It will be a while till any other actor will gain the love and undying support that these 2 amazing actors have achieved. Their humility and down to earth attitude sets them a class apart.

Watch this show if you want to witness the pain and joy of love. Watch this show if you want the best love story portrayed on celluloid. Watch it if you believe that "True love conquers all."
