Around the world, the past two years have seen life change dramatically for all of us. Today we came out stronger with renewed vigor to live in the moment. We are more impulsive when it comes to having fun, trying new things, and exploring new places. Bringing this newfound sense of adventure to life, MX Studios presents ‘Wanderlust’, a six-part series starring Indian TV’s most beloved couple – Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla, where they succumb to the theory of ” Yes”. ‘Wanderlust’ captures the love-struck duo who experience Abu Dhabi’s culture in unique ways, whether by hitting the beach, lounging in luxury, experiencing adrenaline-fueled activities and ending to satisfy their desire to travel.

Each episode of the series is themed around a variety of memorable and unique experiences and activities that Rubina and Abhinav undertake in scenic Abu Dhabi.



Wildlife: The couple are blown away on a wildlife safari at the Arabian Wildlife Park on Sir Bani Yas Island, where they spot giraffes, Arabian oryx and other exotic animals.

Food: The couple sample the variety of cuisines available in Abu Dhabi – Emirati breakfast at Najd Palace, lunch at Punjab Grill and Lebanese dinner at Derwandi.

road trip: Rubina surprises Abhinav with a convertible Mustang and the two drive to the top of Jebel Hafit mountain, with its breathtaking view of the city. On the way, they stop at the World Trade Center souk where they buy unique items not found at home in India.

Beach: The two end their journey at the Zaya Nurai Island Resort where they bask on the beach and in the clear blue waters. They try jet skiing and end the day in complete relaxation with treatments at the Nurai Spa.

From sampling different cuisines to exploring hidden gems in this beautiful city and finding the perfect moment to recount their adventures, the couple are living their best lives. Rubina Dilaik and Abhinav Shukla hope to make up for the lost year with the “Wanderlust” series.

Speaking of this unscripted travelogue, Rubina says, “As a couple, we have always loved exploring the world and traveling with an open mind. ‘Wanderlust’ is the best thing that could have happened to us post-lockdown – being stuck at home and unable to do anything, we realized we had to bring that adrenaline rush back into our lives. A lot of our real-life stories and personal quirks will also come to life in this six-part unscripted series and I think it’s yet another way for us to connect with our fans while doing what we love to do.

Abhinav adds, “Wanderlust highlights the thrill, entertainment, beaches, safaris, restaurants and cuisine – all that Abu Dhabi is famous for. We are extremely excited to be a part of this series that will air for MX Player’s large and diverse audience. It gave us the chance to take risks, overcome our fears and explore the exciting life of the Emirates that we would never have been able to intrinsically otherwise.
