History[edit]

The company registered as 'Balaji Telefilms Private Limited' on 11 November 1994 , at Mumbai with the objective of making television software including serials and other entertainment content by Ekta Kapoor and Shobha Kapoor. Balaji has specialised in formatted programming that can be adapted for languages around the nation as well as abroad. One notable success Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. Other examples include Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Kasautii Zindagii Kay, Kaahin Kissii Roz, Kahiin to Hoga, Kkusum, Kutumb, Kohi Apna Sa, Kasamh Se, Pavitra Rishta, Parichay, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein (dubbed and produced in languages across India), Bade Achhe Lagte Hain, Kya Hua Tera Vaada, Jodha Akbar, Kumkum Bhagya,Kundali Bhagya,Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki, Kya Hua Tera Vaada. In recent years the company has been expanding its reality shows output with shows such as titles such as Box Cricket League on Sony TV.

Balaji was incorporated as a public limited company on 29 February 2000, and its name was changed to 'Balaji Telefilms Ltd' on 19 April 2000.[23] The company made public issue of 28,00,000 equity shares of 10 each at a premium of 120 aggregating 36.40 crore. The issue includes a Book Built Portion of 25,20,000 equity shares and a Fixed Price Portion of 2,80,000 equity shares.[23] In the same year, 'Nine Network Entertainment India Pvt. Ltd', a wholly owned subsidiary of Nine Broadcasting India Pvt. Ltd., merged with Balaji Telefilms Ltd.[23] During 2000-04 the stock market capitalization grew sixteenfold to 571 crore when 'Star India' acquired 21% stake in the business.

In 2007, the company incorporated wholly owned subsidiary Balaji Motion Pictures which creates Bollywood movies. In 2010, the company incorporated ALT Entertainment Limited a banner to produce and concentrate on niche and youth subjects in films and television.

In 2012, the company incorporated BOLT Media Limited yet another a wholly owned subsidiary of Balaji Telefilms which has produced the shows Love By Chance, Yeh Jawani Ta Ra Ri Ri and Dharmakshetra and has created and produced advertisements.

In November 2014, its wholly owned subsidiary Balaji Motion Pictures had tied up a deal with B4U, a Bollywood film production company to co-produce Bollywood films.

In 2014, the company and Ekta Kapoor were subject to protests in Jaipur led by the Shri Rajput Karni Sena (SRKS), a Hindutva group. These occurred because of perceived communal slights in the Jodha Akbar television series.[24][25] In 2015 the banner produced a finite series, Naagin (TV series) which became the most viewed show of Indian television since its inception. The show was so popular that it won numerous awards and returned for its second season which was also a very big hit and now the production company will launch it third season in January 2018.[26][27][28][29]

In 2017 Reliance Industries acquired 25% stake in Balaji Telefilms for Rs413 crore. The deal gave RIL access to Balaji Telefilms’ content for use by telecom unit Reliance Jio. [30]
