Ekta Kapoor, the mastermind behind the hit comedy TV shows and series Hum Paanch was reeling in the early 90’s in Indian Television network for something it was never expected but very much needed. The early 2000’s was a defining generation for most Indian TV viewers because Ekta Kapoor started off a legacy with her show ‘Kyunki… Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’.
Here are the 10 shows you can admit to watching, biting your nails and shivering with anticipation:
1. Kyunki… Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi
The root, where it all began. Countless years of drama and numerous never-ending episodes. It was the premiere of all TV shows. Starting in July 2000, this serial lasted for more than 8 years with a total of 1833 episodes. Wow, they are too much and people were literally crazy about this serial. I still remember when they telecasted the death an accident scene of their main lead Mihir Virani played by Amar Upadhayay that time. People became so crazy and they demanded to bring him back by hook or crook. You might be wondering, how do I know this? I was also one of the guilty who watched this show because of my mom. 😉
2. Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki
The same, family story of ‘Kyunki… Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ with a new cast with twists and turns.
College love stories were a popular hit at the time with the scandalous story of arch nemeses falling in love with each other.
4. Kahiin To Hoga
The serial that got the song ‘Thoda Sa Pyar Hua Hai, Thoda Hai Baaki’ into our heads and also introduced pure talent- Rajeev Khandelwal to the acting scene. No one can deny falling in love with the story of Sujal and Kashish. In fact many of the guys got their first crush as Aamna Sharif and girls of course Rajeev Khandelwal.
5. Kaahin Kissii Roz
This thriller drama is unforgettable and the role of Ramola Sikand played by Sudha Chandran deserves a lot of applauds.
