A major turning point came with the entry of actor Fahman Khan as Aryan Singh Rathore in Star Plus show ‘Imli’. Within a few weeks, it was established that Aryan would be the new hero in the show alongside Tamarind.
It was definitely a calculated risk that would have fallen flat, but Aryan and Tamarind have been highly appreciated by the audience and have now become a rage. India Forums contacted actress Preet Kaur Nayak and asked her about her views on the makers’ decision to make Aryan and Imli a couple, despite being a massive fan of Aditya-Imli.
Aryan and Tamarind added a whole new flavor to the show. While Aditya and Imli were a mature couple, things were completely different between Aryan and Imli.

Talking about this, Preet said, “For me, Aditya and Tamarind were irreplaceable. They used to set the screen on fire and fans were in love with them and I also loved them as an on-screen couple. But when Aryan’s picture came out, I do not know what happened but magic definitely happened. Maybe it’s Fahman’s performance or the author’s way of writing the character; Aryan and Tamarind instantly clicked with the audience”.
He added, “Aryan and Tamarind added a whole new flavor to the show. While Aditya and Imli were a mature couple, things were completely different between Aryan and Imli. Ariely was like Tom and Jerry and people loved watching him too. Being Aditya’s sister, I used to love watching Aryan and Imli on screen. So yes, Aryali is successful and how!”
