The Orgin Of Kyunki Saas bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi

Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi is a very popular Hindi soap opera produced by Balaji Telefilms of India. The first episode of the soap opera was aired in 2000 around the same time as Indian version of “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” i.e. “Kaun Banega Crorepati” was launched. The show was immediately liked by audience and the viewer ship was not just limited to India but was also watched and liked by viewers in Pakistan, Afghanistan, U.S.A., and U.K.

The plot revolves around the successful Virani family, hailing from Gujarat, which is now settled in Mumbai and has its own standing in the corporate world. Govardhan Virani is the head of the family who lives with his wife, three sons, daughter in laws and grandchildren in the house ironically named Shantiniketan. It is ironical as Shantiniketan means the home of peace in Hindi as the three daughters in law Savita, Daksha, and Gayatri are doing something or other to disrupt the tranquility and peace of the household. Mihir, who is the eldest son of the family, elopes with Tulsi, daughter of the family priest, and marries her. Tulsi is blamed for luring Mihir to marry her so that she could make the transition from a middle class family to a rich and respectable household. Tulsi is shown fighting the continuous injustice being done to her by her in-laws and trying to earn respect from her family members. Tulsi faces trouble not only from within the household but from outside too. Payal, who was Mihir’s fiancée at one time, wants to rock the marriage somehow so that she can marry Mihir. For this purpose she does not hesitate to instigate members of the Virani family.

In a major twist in the story it is shown that Mihir died and due to pressure by family members Tulsi is going to remarry. Mihir is resurrected and comes back to claim his wife at the altar, the reason behind his absence is that he had an accident which resulted in amnesia. The reason behind resurrection of Mihir might have been a marketing gimmick or maybe it was done in view of the popular public demand to bring Mihir back, but whatever the reason might have been it increased the ratings of the show.

Recently it was reported that Smriti Malhotra Irani who plays the main character of Tulsi gets paid around 1000 $ (50,000 INR) per episode which is a quite substantial sum in India. In April 2005, the show celebrated the completion of 5 years on the air as well as aired 1000th episode.
The serial is currently aired on STAR Plus, Monday to Friday at 10:00 P.M in the United Kingdom and Monday to Friday 10:30 P.M. in India.
