The 2006 hit series Left Right Left swooped in to the Indian television audiences’ rescue with something truly hatke back in 2006. 

Well, ten years have gone by since the first time Left Right Left became a part of our daily lives and we decided to find out what our lovable cadets have been up to all these years.

1. Sanaya Irani

The girl that played Cadet Vidya Saxena charmed her way into our hearts in ‘Left Right Left’, but last seen in ‘Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuein’, Deeya has been out of the limelight since May 2012 – except a cameo in TV show ‘Chhanchhan’ in 2013.

5. Hiten Tejwani

Hiten was already an accomplished actor with several established characters under his belt when he entered the ‘Left Right Left’ cast as Colonel Abhay Verma.

9. Arjun Bijlani

Yet another star that was born in shows like ‘Remix’ and ‘Left Right Left’, Arjun Bijlani – Cadet Aaalekh Sharma on LRL, rose to fame pretty quick and his recent work includes ‘Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi’ and ‘Naagin’. This year, he got his foot in the bog Bollywood door in the film ‘Direct Ishq’.

11. Ghazal Rai

She was most recently seen showing off her baby bump in a bikini on a splendid beach, though.

13. Samir Sharma

From ‘Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii’ to ‘Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’, we had already seen this actor’s chops before ‘Left Right Left’ came about. But his role as Captain Naveen Singh Ahluwalia sure was one for the years. Lately, he’s been seen in shows like ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?…Ek Baar Phir’ and even made his Bollywood debut in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’.
