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]

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 BhatnagarAnkit 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 RishtaBade Achhe Lagte HainYeh 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 SinghMugdha 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]
