Ekta Kapoor to make serial on saas-bahu live-in

saas-bahu live-inMumbai. Taking a cue from Maharashtra Government decision to bring live-in relationships under legal framework, producer Ekta Kapoor has decided to make a television serial on live-in relationships. Interestingly she has introduced a saas-bahu angle in the story that explores a new dimension of the whole issue of live-in relationships.

Talking to mediapersons in the conference room of Balaji Telefilms, Ekta told that the serial will start with the love story of a guy called Karthik who is madly in love with Kusum. Karthik has been living with his mother Kruti in a two bedroom flat in Kolkata when he and Kusum decide to get into a live-in relationship. Just as Kusum moves in Karthik’s home, Karthik gets a job with Lehman Brothers and had to go to USA, leaving Kusum and Kruti in a situation that can be called as saas-bahu live-in.

The situation worsens when Karthik commits suicide in USA after Lehman Brothers goes bankrupt. Differences and distances between Kusum and Kruti start growing wider after this and the story revolves around these two women from that moment on. Ekta Kapoor didn’t provide further information on how the story shapes up after Karthik’s death.

“The serial will show the complexities that a saas-bahu live-in relationship throws up. Property rights, emotional issues, social concerns, the serial will document all. I believe the law makers would be helped immensely if they watch the serial, and they will make provisions for a saas-bahu live-in in the current law.” Ekta Kapoor hoped.

Speculations were high that Shahrukh Khan could play the role of Karthik to promote the serial. As Karthik dies early in the story, Ekta would not need to pay heavy sum to Shahrukh but it will promote the serial to no end. Although Ekta didn’t talk about this possibility, but Balaji Telefilms was agog with such rumors.

Ekta told that the new serial would soon be under production and ready to be aired next month. She informed that Balaji Telefilms was in talks with various television channels that have shown interest in airing the new serial, the name of which is yet to be finalized. She refused to comment if the name would start with the letter ‘k’.

Whether Shahrukh or no Shahrukh, housewives of India will surely enjoy this new soap that talks about live-in relationship between a saas and bahu.
