Director’s Kut Productions has achieved the near ‘impossible’ by resurrecting its long-running show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai after it lost its popular lead faces in Karan Mehra and Hina Khan.
Never in the history of Indian television has a show been ‘reinvented’ after seeing its lowest ebb!!
It not only is doing really well on the popularity and number charts but has also gained huge fan following when it comes to the younger generation cast, who have literally taken the onus on their shoulders, giving out good performances after the exit of the seniors.
Of course, the brilliant story and the confidence of the makers and writers in carrying forward the legacy even after the fallout of the leads, speaks volumes about the reason why the show is super-successful today.
Rajan Shahi’s Director’s Kut which has always stood out for its high production values has now been bestowed upon with awards in plenty!!
Yes, recognition and awards galore for the team of Yeh Rishta…
Recently, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was conferred with Dada Saheb Phalke Excellence Award for being the longest running show on television. Also, the production house was awarded the Dada Saheb Phalke Academy Award for being the best production house.
What’s more? The show is on course to completing 2400 episodes very soon and the recently held Star Parivaar Awards was also fruitful for the entire team as the show got few awards out there.
So what’s it that has clicked with the audience?
Firstly, the Jodi of Karthik (Mohsin Khan) and Naira (Shivangi Joshi) has worked wonders, and the biggest plus point has been the manner in which their characters have been etched. They are very real when it comes to their thought process; the leads have had a journey of their own, having made mistakes and learnt from them.
Also, the parallel tracks, especially the one wherein awareness was created about domestic violence and how this social issue runs across all strata of people got appreciated a lot.
And now, the ongoing track wherein Karthik again goes through a very natural process of feeling jealous on finding his wife getting close with another guy, has been garnering eye balls.
When contacted, Producer Rajan Shahi told us, “It has indeed been an honour to receive the Dada Sahib Phalke Award. I am very grateful to my entire team of Yeh Rishta for making it happen. Having said this, we are working with renewed energy with the show doing really well.”
Kudos to the team of Yeh Rishta for achieving this honour!!
