But Abhi and Pragya came together under circumstances that most couples can relate to. Yes, their lives are full of drama (because why not) and are far from the real, monotonous lives that we lead. But this jodi has certain elements that all those in relationships, can take cues from. Here’s a look:
1. Arranged to be together
Like most Indian marriages, Abhi and Pragya’s too was arranged. The two were brought together by their families, and since then, there has been no looking back for the couple.

2. Starting off on the wrong foot
When two people are poles apart, there are bound to be differences right? Similar is the case with Abhi and Pragya. While Abhi is the notorious kinds, Pragya is the silent and calm one. You can only imagine the fireworks when these two come together! But eventually, the couple overcomes all obstacles and sorts out their problems.
3. Opposites attract indeed
As mentioned above, Abhi and Pragya are like chalk and cheese. And yet, we don’t know of a more perfect jodi than theirs. These two complete each other and make up for qualities that the other doesn’t have. It helps keep their relationship spicy and alive. What do you think?
4. Time heals all wounds
Abhi and Pragya may have been bitter about spending their lives together despite their disapproval but overtime, they started to understand each other. Such is the trend with most arranged marriages where time is crucial to accept one another’s plus points as well as flaws.
5. From Abhi and Pragya to ‘AbhiGya’
Abhi and Pragya overcame all obstacles and came to be known as one identity- AbhiGya. Hashtags are a big deal for couples these days and AbhiGya set the trend, wouldn’t you agree? Often couples become inspirations to those looking to believe in true love and AbhiGya is a clear example.
