On the occasion of National Youth Day, here are five youth shows that we like to watch on television.
Set in Maurya High School, the Star One show depicted the lives of school students. From first love, heartbreak, peer and parent pressure to dealing with study load, the show worked with extreme sensitivity on various topics. In addition, it was the first TV show to feature an original music album, given that the students were part of a band. And how can we forget the super stylish uniform that made most youngsters don blazers in school even in summer. The show starred Karan Wahi, Shweta Gulati, Raj Singh Arora and Priya Wala.
When I met you
Miley Jab Hum Tum brought the magic of college days to life on screen. Told through the perspectives of two sisters – Gunjan and Nupur – with very different personalities, the series captures the eyeball with its relatable content. The chemistry between the leads (Rati Pandey-Arjun Bijlani and Sanaya Irani-Mohit Sehgal) also helped to make the show a strong fan.
This one story of love
After Twilight became a worldwide sensation, Ekta Kapoor launched her own vampire-human love story called Pyar Kiya-Ek Ye Kahani. The first youth-centric supernatural series in India made Vivian Dsena an overnight star, and if you look at her photos from time to time, you’ll know why.

The SAB TV drama portrayed Rajiv Khandelwal in charge of training as the oh-so-beautiful captain Rajveer Shekhawat, while Priyanka Bassi, Harshad Chopra, Arjun Bijlani, Kunwar Karan Kapoor and Vikas Mankatla played their young cadets. Apart from a few grueling training sessions, the show also spoke on topics such as friendship, love, pratyadana – making it a favorite among younger audiences.
Dil friendship dance
As the title suggests, the college-based show dealt with love, friendship and dance. The student Alaa High School musical, Dil Dosti Dance, is also referred to as D3, boasting some amazing dance performances, as the student team participated in various competitions on the show. Interestingly, the makers cast the real dancers as actors in D3, and we must say that they did an amazing job. The show gave us young stars like Shakti Mohan, Shantanu Maheshwari, Kunwar Amar and Varnika Mehta, who played the popular characters of Kirar, Swayam, Reyansh and Sharon respectively.
