Ekta Kapoor’s vision and her talented writing team, backed with strong performances, allowed her shows to create history.
She has always been following her astrological advice, Kapoor named most of her shows with the letter K.
Also, believe it or not, most of them from the K-series did manage to top TRP charts.
Today on her birthday, giving a throwback to the old times we at UrbanAsian bright out to you Ekta Kapoor’s shows from the 20s that we loving watching.
Here are the best 5 shows of the K-series from the past:
Kasautii Zindagii Kay:
The love story of the simple Anurag (Cezanne Khan) and firebrand Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) was a favourite during the early 2000s. And adding some depth to their love story was the ritzy Rishabh Bajaj, played by Ronit Roy. While Ekta Kapoor launched the reboot of Kasautii Zindagii Kay in 2018, nothing can beat the original drama. The reboot version is already on Star Plus. It stars Erica Fernandes, Parth Samthaan, Aamna Sharif & Karan Singh Grover.
However, if you are craving for some classic storytelling, you can watch the original show on Hotstar.
Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi:
Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi played a major role in changing the fortunes of Balaji Telefilms. Smriti Irani played the protagonist Tulsi Virani and the show revolved around her and her family’s daily life struggles. It was also the debut acting project of (now) Bollywood actors Mouni Roy and Pulkit Samrat.
You can catch the show Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi still on Hotstar.
Kasamh Se made stars out of Ram Kapoor and the debutant Prachi Desai. Their love story and chemistry is still remembered, and Zee TV recently decided to get it back on the channel during the lockdown. The premise of the show – a 40-year-old marrying a girl half his age was an unheard one but the audience lapped it up. The show also had ample doses of sister rivalry, emotion, comedy and drama, making it a complete package.
Kasamh Se is also available on ZEE5.
Kkavyanjali, one of the most underrated K-serials, had it all. It has romance, thrill, revenge, emotion to even family drama.
The show projected the story of star-crossed lovers. Anita Hassanadani and Eijaz Khan played the couple in the daily, while Amrita Singh also made her TV debut with Kkavyanjali.
The episodes of Kkavyanjali are available on Dailymotion.
Giving a break to saas-bahu dramas, Ekta Kapoor launched Kutumb on Sony TV with Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan. The show revolved around two very different people who hate each other, but eventually fall in love and get married. Kutumb was one of the first dailies to launch a new season after the first season wrapped up. The serial brought immense fame to Hiten and Gauri, and they were subsequently cast together in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. And most importantly, the actors fell in love and got married in real life too.
You can watch Kutumb on Sony LIV.
While we are loving the K-series there are also recently two shows that people are enjoying a lot that too starts with K. It’s Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya.
She is also blessing the audience with interesting shows like Naagin. Which has 4th seasons and there are news for 5th season as the 4th ends.
