Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai hits 12: THIS is why Shivangi Joshi and Mohsin Khan’s show is relatable
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is a show which continues to tug at heart strings even today. For any Hindi GEC to complete 12 years and remain on top is a milestone unheard of. Producer Rajan Shahi launched this show in 2009 with Hina Khan and Karan Mehra as the evergreen jodi Akshara and Naitik. The reigns were taken over by another iconic jodi Shivangi Joshi and Mohsin Khan as Naira and Kartik in 2016. With several highs and lows and twists, YRKKH enjoys a loyal following which can easily make us believe YRKKH is not just a show but an emotion for many. Many wonder about the reason behind this massive success. Is it the jodis, is the drama, the twist? As the show clocks in 12 years today and 3300 episodes, we decode why the show continues to be relatable even today.
1. Family drama: Call it Over the top or in the millennium slang, OTT, but drama sells. More so because each household irrespective of the background has experienced drama in their house and the show only brings to forefront the experiences and hence is able to exude emotions which keeps fans on the edge.
2. Love story: If there is drama, there is love and the show has managed to balance the new age love story with traditions pretty well. While Kaira as a couple are a mirror to new age drama, Akshara and Naitik managed to transcend from a rather traditional background to marrying modern times effectively.
3. Shivangi Joshi, Mohsin Khan and the entire cast: No, we are not saying others don’t work hard but the cast and crew of YRKKH are evidently one of the most hard working ones. Despite all the upheavals, the team always manage to be in sync and are ying to yang. Actors Shivangi Joshi and Mohsin Khan are undoubtedly one of the most loved and their impeccable performance remains unparalleled. The mention of team would be incomplete without acknowledging the contribution of Hina and Karan in the initially 7 years of the show.
4. Costumes: The show has always managed to leave a lasting impression with its costumes and grandeur. The lehengas worn by Shivangi Joshi aka Naira or the assembled looks of Mohsin Khan aka Kartik have always managed to become a style statement.
Lastly, the show has managed to survive the test of times, all thanks to the cast and crew and of course, the loyal fans of the show.
