In manipulative times like these, you have girls falling for Anurag’s sincerity hook, line and sinker.

Wondering what makes him totally adorbs? We’ve got you covered. Read on.

#1 Put your hands up for this good boy!

At a time when there are enough and more bad boys on TV, Anurag broke the clutter and totally owned the ‘good boy’ space. He came as a breath of fresh air and showed you that it’s not only the bad boys who have all the fun. Indian TV has seen such acts before as well, but Anurag has upped the game and how!

#2 He’ll give you all kinds of #Goals

When it comes to giving you #Goals, he’s quite the all-rounder. He’s a great son, a passionate lover and a confidante you can always count on. So there you have #SonGoals, #BoyfriendGoals and #FriendGoals all rolled into one person. Can it get any better? Anurag is clearly a winner all the way!

#3 Great to see a TV character so real and so human

The best part about Anurag is that he doesn’t try to be perfect unlike a lot of other characters we see on TV. Like all of us, he knows he is flawed and is okay with it. It’s this quality that ups his desirability quotient by several notches and makes him so very relatable. He’s just so human and we love that about him.

#4 There’s an aura of goodness that surrounds him

There’s an overall air of goodness about him. His personality is neither rugged not is it intimidating. As a girl, you will always feel safe around him, and that’s saying quite a lot. His chivalry will only make you go ‘awww’. The good thing is he doesn’t try to be someone else. He’s secure and comfortable in his own skin. Uff, we can go on and on. You know what? They don’t make them like that anymore. That sums it up!

#5 A great character meets an equally great actor

Every character is brought to life by the actor who plays it. So a major credit of what Anurag is today goes to Parth Samthaan for he not only plays the character, but literally lives him out on screen. It’s no surprise then that this super cute actor has gone on to command a huge fan base and has several fan clubs rooting for him. The way he transforms into Anurag Basu on screen is proof of how much of himself he has invested in this role. Major props to him for this! Very rarely do we see such synergy between a character and an actor.

Parth Samthaan totally nails it with his portrayal of Anurag.

It is these reasons that make Anurag easily the most desirable man on Indian TV. You can keep crushing on him on StarPlus and still won’t tire of it. So if there’s one person who should make it to year-end lists of hot, handsome and desirable men, it has gotta be Anurag. Are the list makers listening?
