Explaining this, Zee TV’s head of the program, Namit Sharma says- “This serial will be shown in place of another good serial, so you can understand how much we trust it.” This serial will replace Zee TV’s 4 years running a very special serial, Pritha Rishta. Which has been the most loved of the Indian audience? While eating dinner, this human and Archana couple is very much liked by millions. Kumkum Bhagya is also based on the second-best story of a Punjabi family who lives in Mumbai. In which a mother keeps searching for an ideal relationship for her two daughters. Ekta has dramatized it into a beautiful love that is completely different from the everyday Saas Bahu story.
