One of the first fictional characters I fell in love with.
Why do i like this character? Because he is good looking and rich?
It's because this character is a masterpiece.
His love for Geet was so selfless that it put every other bollywood love story to shame.
He let her go not once but thrice.
First when he realised about his feelings for her and her feelings for someone else. He let her go happily without any expectation of ever seeing her again. He did not wait around for her. Why would he when her presence was always with him? He had spent less than a fort night with her probably and still she became a part of him. Her memories where all he had. He didn't demean them. He grew better because of them.
Second time he let her go even when she didn't really want to. He could have been selfish for once and asked her otherwise. She would definitely have stayed. This time she knew that Aditya loves her. He still made her choose otherwise because her being with the one she loves was more important to him than her being with him.
The third time, he let her go even when it felt liked the universe was conspiring for them. Had he chosen to not leave that day, he still would've been with her. Who could've stopped him? But again, this is where Aditya Kashyap becomes a legend.
He let's her go again. In fact he pushed her away.
The funny part?
Inspite of everything, in spite of Geet choosing someone else over him, when she finally realises what she really wants and runs back to him, leaving everything behind, he doesn't turn her away.
In that one moment he gets her. Whole.
There are no questions asked. No grudges held.
They both suffered in their own ways but no comparisons were made.
He let her go thrice but when she comes back to him, he embraces her wholeheartedly.
But that's why it's a movie and the character is fictional. Happy endings are a myth.
What if when Geet ran back to him, he would've refused to accept her? What if he never went looking for her?
What if he would have said that since she didn't choose him first, he doesn't want her anymore?
Geet would've been shattered with regret and the movie would've been a flop.
In reality, even though you may think that you have found your Aditya, you may be wrong.
Your Aditya will not come looking for you. He will not stay in love with you without seeing you. He will even fall out of love with you and shun your memories. Aditya's love for Geet is supreme in a way that no one can reach upto.
That is why Aditya Kashyap is The Aditya Kashyap.
An imaginary person I am in love with.
