Ekta Kapoor produced the romantic drama television series Kundali Bhagya which premiered in 2017 and soon the show made a special place in the hearts of audiences. The popular prime-time show stars Shraddha Arya, Anjum Fakih, Dheeraj Dhoopar and Manit Joura in the lead roles.
While romantic drama is one of the most popular shows on Indian TV, here are a few facts you may not know.
First concept of its kind on Indian television
Kundali Bhagya from Ekta Kapoor is a series derived from Kumkum Bhagya. The concept was first introduced to Indian television with this show. It’s an extension of Zee TV’s popular drama, revolving around Pragya’s (Sriti Jha) long-lost sisters – Preeta and Shrishti.
It’s the biggest Hindi fiction of the week
After the daily soap first aired on July 12, 2017, Kundali Bhagya quickly became the largest weekday Hindi fiction launch in all General Entertainment Channels (GECs) in the same year.
Kundali Bhagya is the fourth most watched TV show
It is also worth pointing out that Kundali Bhagya reached fourth place in its first week, making it one of the most beloved shows on Indian TV. It became the fourth most watched TV show with an incredible TRP rating. Additionally, the show took # 1 on the TRP chart in November 2017 and continued to stay # 1 until December of this year.
The show used Manmohan Desai’s formula in the plot
Not many people know that Ekta Kapoor’s show used Manmohan Desai’s formula to reunite lost children with their parents. The main characters of the show Preeta and Srishti arrived in Mumbai in search of their mother after the death of their father.
Preeta tried her hand in the Chaplin-esque look in the show
Interestingly, Preeta (played by Shraddha Arya) disguised herself as Charlie Chaplin to enter Karan’s house. She is the second actress to have a Chaplin-esque look with all of her typical manners. Previously, Sridevi had tried the Chaplin-esque look in Shekhar Kapur’s sci-fi film Mr India, released in 1987.
