Star Life premieres three new series this month: Wedding Planners
, Broken Hearts
and Mismatched, which premieres on Thursday 28 October at 20h00, replacing Mariam Khan - Reporting Live
, which ends the day before.
Two people are at odds with each other in Mismatched: Shaurya and Anokhi.
This is what you need to know about them...
He's a low life misogynist from a royal family who believes women shouldn't work or study, and she's a woman who wants to do just that.
Shaurya's bigoted beliefs have arisen because he feels he was deserted by his mother Aastha, who left him to pursue a career and take care of her elderly parents.
She left him unwillingly and he was raised by his aunt and uncle who informed his oppressive belief system and values.
In contrast to Shaurya, Anokhi fights the patriarchy by insisting on an education and actively pursuing it.
She goes to college where she meets Shaurya's mother Aastha who's become a professor. Aastha teaches Anokhi and they form a bond, which is how Anokhi and Shaurya meet.
Shaurya and Anokhi get close after Aastha suffers a life threatening injury and Shaurya reveals that he cares about his mother.
With this new awareness, he falls in love with Anokhi.
In between it all, both Shaurya and Anokhi almost marry and actually marry other people, with disastrous consequences.
