One of the most famous daily soaps of the Indian television Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is getting a spin-off. While the show earlier cast Hina Khan and Karan Mehra in the lead roles, the spin-off will star Shaheer Sheikh and Rhea Sharma. For the title, the spin-off currently remains untitled as the makers have not yet come up with a suitable name for the show.
Producer Rajan Shahi confirmed the news by saying, “There are many characters in Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, whose stories need to be told in 2019, in a new setting. And this is why we decided on making a spin-off.” “Yes, we are in talks with him. But at the moment, the priority is the scripting of the show,” he further added when he was asked about Shaheer as the lead actor.
The lead actor Shaheer was previously seen playing the lead role in Dastaan-E-Mohabbat. Due to poor television ratings, the show wrapped up abruptly. Talking about his role in the spin-off, Shaheer will be seen playing a different role in the spin-off of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. On the other hand, lead actress Rhea was previously in TV show Tu Sooraj Main Saanjh Piyaji.
Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is not the first show of India to come up with a spin-off. Shows like Ishqbaaz and Kumkum Bhagya have already come up on the small screen with their spin-offs. While Dil Bole Oberoi could not win equal attention from the audience like its parent show Ishqbaaz, Kundali Bhagya was successful to give insight into characters of the show.
