Imagine to bring season 2 of Kitani Mohabbat Hai

Kitani Mohabbat Hai

Imagine TV is all set to bring back its popular serial Kitani Mohabbat Hai for a second season. No, it's not taking off from where the show ended nor is it a sequel. The channel is planning to air a fresh love story, albeit with the same lead pair Karan Kundra and Kritika Kamara. In its first season, this Ekta Kapoor produced show ran for eight months and was a hit with the youth according to Nikhil Madhok, Head, Marketing & Communications, Imagine.

"In its first season it was a finite love story and was meant for a shorter run. When it ended we had lot of viewers writing to us about wanting a season 2, which we are now planning to do," says Nikhil. They are currently working on the script and other details. "The first story started in a hill station and moved to Mumbai, this time it will be different but the setting will remain urban," discloses Nikhil.

Incidentally, Ekta had tried a similar experiment with one of her earlier shows Kutumb, which was aired on Sony. Starring Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan the serial was popular and once the the first story ended, a new one replaced it immediately, albeit with the same name and actors. Even the character names Pratham and Gauri were retained. Only the story was different.

Recalls Hiten, "In the first Kutumb, I was Pratham Mittal hailing from an extremely rich family while in the second I was shown as Pratham Maan belonging to a middle-class family. However, in both, Gauri and me were shown to be college students." Another serial that had a second season was the popular sitcom Khichdi, which came back as Instant Khichdi with the same cast of Supriya Pathak, Anang Desai, Vandana Pathak, Rajeev Mehta and J D Majethia.
