1. Bold and beautiful
Besides the fact that Sairat and Tujhse Hai Raabta both are set in a Maharashtrian backdrop, Reem Shaikh‘s character on the Zee TV show is an instant reminder of Aarchi from Nagraj Manjule’s film Sairat. Played by Rinku Rajguru, the actress is still known as Aarchi, short for her role of Archana Patil in the cult hit Marathi film. Of course, both come from distinct worlds, but yet, there is something about Reem’s Kalyani Malhar Rane that is so similar to Aarchi. Here, a lowdown on the traits we feel Kalyani shares with Aarchi.
The fact that she was bolder than most girls and even boys her age, made Aarchi even more beautiful. Same goes for Kalyani, she is the not one to sit back and instead always takes risks to save the day.
2. Die-hard romantics
Just like Aarchi and Parshya (Akash Thosar), Kalyani and Malhar’s bond culminated into an eternal love story despite all the odds. Their chemistry is icy, spicy and full too fiery!
3. Simple yet stylish
Aarchi was a character from the rural, rustic Maharashtra who loved to complete her look with aviators. Kalyani, meanwhile, underwent a 360-degree transformation after her marriage with Malhar. But don’t we love both these girls in their subtle yet statement-making looks?
4. Out and out Marathi mulgi
5. Fights a good fight
6. Became a mother at young age
Another striking similarity is how these two girls embraced motherhood early on. Aarchi became a mommy after she wed Parshya but Kalyani took to Moksh aka Pillu – son of Malhar and his first wife, just like her own. She leaves no stone unturned to care for Pillu and always protects him from all evils.
7. Silly but extremely cute
They are strong but they can be silly too. But they are damn cute, undeniably. That’s Aarchi and Kalyani for you all!
