Kumkum Bhagya (transl.Vermillion in My Fate) is an Indian Hindi-language drama television series produced by Ekta Kapoor under Balaji Telefilms.[2] It premiered on 15 April 2014 on Zee TV and streams on ZEE5.[3] It stars Sriti Jha and Shabir Ahluwalia.

Since March 2019, Mugdha Chaphekar, Naina Singh, later replaced by Pooja Banerjee, and Krishna Kaul were also introduced as leads of the second generation alongside Sriti and Shabbir. The concept is based on Jane Austen's 1811 novel Sense and Sensibility.[1]

Plot

The series started as the story of sisters Pragya and Bulbul, and their mother Sarla Arora's hope to see them married. Later, the show revolved around Abhi and Pragya. The couple later have a daughter Kiara.

7 years later

Pragya gives birth to twin daughters whilst Kiara is killed by enemies. Pragya and Abhi are heartbroken and blame each other for their daughter's death and separate, with Pragya taking one twin whilst Abhi keeps the other.

20 years later

The show was rebranded as "Dusri Pidhi" (Second Generation) where several new characters were introduced as parallel leads. These included Abhi and Pragya’s twin daughters, Prachi and Rhea, and a love triangle with Abhi's friend's son, Ranbir Kohli. Prachi is the replica of Pragya who is sweet, honest and caring whereas Rhea turns out to be selfish, cunning and over pampered by her aunt Alia. Tanu returns and she later marries Abhi who was supposed to be marrying Pragya. Due to a misunderstanding, Abhi cuts ties with Pragya. Prachi and Ranbir marry.

2 years later

The show was rebranded as "Bhagya Ka Naya Safar" (Destiny's New Journey), where Pragya has comes back from Australia while for others, she was supposedly dead. She comes back with the intention of taking revenge on Abhi as she was tricked into thinking that Abhi was the one who tried to kill her by Tanu and Aliya. It also revolves around the married lives of Prachi and Ranbir and Rhea and Siddharth. Abhi and Pragya clear their misunderstandings and reunite. [1]

1 month later

Pragya and Abhi are in coma. Prachi and Ranbir have separated due to a misunderstanding created by Rhea. Sid and Rhea are now divorced. Ranbir turns out to be a successful businessman whereas Sushma who is Pragya's mentor tries to console a heartbroken Prachi. Prachi later tranforms into a successful businesswoman with Sushma's aid. Soon Prachi gets to know that she is pregnant with Ranbir's child. However, Rhea and Ranbir get married illegally as Ranbir thinks Prachi has moved on. Prachi witnesses their wedding and decides to fight for her self esteem. For this she returns back to the Kohli House to regain her right as Ranbir's legal wife and to throw Rhea out.

Production

Development and premiere

Kumkum Bhagya has moved beyond the confines of a TV show to become an integral part of our viewers’ lives. Over the past couple of years, Abhi, Pragya and their undeniable chemistry has appealed to viewer sensibilities, making the show the undisputed leader of the Hindi television space.

— Zee TV’s Deputy Business Head, Deepak Rajadhyaksha about Kumkum Bhagya[5]
Filming location at Delhi

The series is a love story[6] produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor under the banner Balaji Telefilms that airs on Zee TV. The show premiered at 09:00 pm (IST) and 10:30 pm (CAT) on Tuesday on 15 April 2014 and airs episodes from Monday to Friday. Ekta Kapoor considers the letter K to be lucky and has named many of her productions starting with K.[7] Talking about introducing a fresh concept on prime time, Zee TV Programming head Namit Sharma said, "It takes one epic show to replace another, so you can imagine. It is a passionate drama of love, a far cry from regular saas-bahu soaps and has an ensemble cast of some very talented actors."[8] Ekta Kapoor added, "While two of my shows (Pavitra Rishta and Jodha Akbar) are already on-air and doing immensely well on Zee TV, it's a pleasure to extend my partnership with Zee to a third show. Pavitra Rishta has had a run of over five years now and the journey has been most gratifying for me as a producer. While the audiences who are hooked on to Pavitra Rishta will continue to enjoy the show at 6:30 PM, Kumkum Bhagya will open at 9 PM, drawing maximum eyeballs. It is so contemporary in its treatment that viewers will be able to instantly spot characters out of their own lives in the show. It's a story of passionate love that anyone with a soul would be able to easily relate to".[8]

Speaking of his comeback as an actor, Shabbir Ahluwalia, the protagonist of the show says, "With me producing shows, it was getting very difficult to manage time for acting assignments. But now, I have decided to concentrate on acting. You cannot be away from what you love doing for long. The role appealed to me a great deal. This is the first time that I will be playing a rockstar on television and in order to look my part, I had to ensure that I did not just get my costume and look right, but also get that attitude right that is required to portray a rockstar onscreen."[8]

The production and airing of the show was halted indefinitely in late March 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak in India.[9] Because of the outbreak, the filming of television series and films was halted on 19 March 2020 and expected to resume on 1 April 2020 but could not and the series was last broadcast on 24 March 2020 when the remaining episodes were aired.[10][11][12] After three months, the production and filming of the series resumed on 29 June 2020 and airing to resume from 13 July 2020.[13][14][15]

Casting

Shabbir Ahluwalia,[16] who was also cast in Ekta's TV series Kayamath, was selected to portray the lead role of Abhishek Prem Mehra. Ahluwalia made his comeback after Zee twenty years. Actress Sriti Jha landed in lead role in the show.[16] Mrunal Thakur was selected to portray the second leading role of Bulbul[17] while Arjit Taneja was cast opposite her.[17][18] In May 2014, Shikha Singh entered the show as the main antagonist Alia Mehra,[18][19][20] while Madhurima Tuli was cast to portray the negative role of Tanu. Later, Tuli had to shoot for her film Baby so, this role was later played by Leena Jumani in September 2014.[21] Actor Faisal Rashid was selected to portray the role of Suresh (Pragya's fiancé) who played an important role in April–May 2014, but in May 2015 he quit the series.[22] Actress Supriya Shukla was cast to play the role of Sarla Arora, while Madhu Raja played the role of Daljeet Arora. Other supporting cast members include Samiksha Bhatnagar, Ankit Mohan, Charu Mehra and Amit Dhawan. Bhatnagar, who portrayed the supporting role of Mitali was replaced by Swati Anand within the month of launch while Anurag Sharma, who also appeared in Ekta Kapoor's Pavitra Rishta, Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Itna Karo Na Mujhe Pyaar replaced Amit. In 2015, Neel Motawani (who was also cast in other shows of Ekta) was selected to play the negative role of Neel; while in June 2015 Nikhil Arya entered the series playing the role of main male antagonist Nikhil Sood.[23]

In December 2015, actress Mrunal Thakur who played the role of Bulbul opted out from the show and was to be replaced by Kajol Shrivastava, however the character of Bulbul was phased out of the series after Mrunal's departure. In August 2016, Ankit Mohan quit the show so his character left as well. In September 2016, Arjit Taneja quit the show and was replaced by Vin Rana.

Mishal Raheja as King Singh and Kaurwakee Vashista as Kiara Mehra entered the show after the leap. Actor Abeer Adil was cast in 2018 as King's cousin Tarun and Roma Bali as Tarun's mother. In 2019, a twenty-year leap was introduced which several new characters entered in the show and became pivotal characters. These included: Naina Singh, Mugdha Chaphekar and Krishna Kaul who play Rhea, Prachi and Ranbir respectively. In 2020, Naina left the show as she wasn’t happy playing a negative role anymore. Pooja Banerjee later replaced her. [4]

Reception

Critical reception

Here's celebrating a show that has stood the test of time and crossed the boundaries of language, a big thank you to each and every one of you from all over the world for all the love you have given Kumkum Bhagya, for always keeping it at the top, no matter where it aired, and what language. We, as a team, are truly grateful that you let us entertain you for half a decade.

— Shabir Ahluwalia on the series completing 5 Years.[29]

The show climbed to Top 5 most-watched shows across all GEC's. After only a few weeks of its launch and was touted as the biggest fiction launch of 2014.[30] The serial is very popular among Indian women.[31] The show also gave tough fight to the long time Hindi GEC leader Diya Aur Baati Hum that aired at same slot on Star Plus.[32] On the reception of the show in such a short span of time, Zee TV business head Pradeep Hejmadi announced that he considered the 'wedding track' a very important inflection point for people to gravitate to the series, believing it to be attracting increasing interest in all parameters. He also added "Each story has its own promise and people who tune in are people who are bought into those promises or are keen to explore the relationships or the characters that stand out speaking to them. We concentrated on bringing out the key inflection points for the show and it was important because it is the core promise of Kumkum Bhagya."[33]

Later, the series further raised to 13.5 million impressions (urban + rural) when the production decided to introduce Tannu's DNA report storyline. Later in the month of August, makers introduced Abhi's memory loss twist and restarted the show which helped to maintain the ratings and dominated the first spot till October. In the month of October 2016, Balaji Telefilms Naagin second season launched and dominated the first spot, pushed Kumkum Bhagya to second spot in BARC chart. In the month of May 2017, Kumkum Bhagya became number one show again and continued to be for few weeks, dethroning the mega success of 2017 Naagin second season. In September, Kumkum bhagya's Spin-off Kundali Bhagya, the story of Pragya's long lost sisters Preeta and Shrishti became the most-watched show replacing Kumkum Bhagya. Since then Kumkum Bhagya mostly stayed in second spot. Decline ratings lead makers to introduce Kumkum Bhagya: Doosri Peedhi (Translation: Vermilion in my fate: next generation) quickly in March 2019. Doosri Peedhi helped to make the show number one again in BARC week 14, 2019. Though later Doosri Peedhi had to be ended in June 2021 in order to bring the focus back to the main leads of the show, Abhi and Pragya, due to declining ratings. So the ratings increased after the two-year leap revolving around the leads after the second leads were focussed on for a few months. Now the story revolves around Pragya's mistaken belief that Abhi tried to kill her. Prachi and Ranbir are married and play a similar role to that of Purab and Bulbul/Purab and Disha.[34]

Reruns of Kumkum Bhagya premiered on Zee Anmol from 2017 and received high ratings in the BARC rural chart when Zee Anmol was FTA. It began running on the network again from episode 1 from 10 June 2020, due to the return to DD Free Dish.[35][36][37][38][39]
