The series premiered 20 August 2007 and ran through 29 October 2010.[1][2]It was a sequel to the Star Plus series Sanjivani - A Medical Boon (2002–05). The show centers on a new generation of medical interns with a specific focus on the love story between Dr. Armaan Malik (Karan Singh Grover) and Dr. Riddhima Gupta which was originally portrayed by Shilpa Anand and later by Sukirti Kandpal and Jennifer Winget.[3]


Dill Mill Gayye follows the lives of surgical interns and resident doctors of Sanjeevani. Set in the backdrop of Sanjeevani Hospital, it deals with the pressures, drama, romance, inter personal relationships and humour in their lives.[4]

During the course of the show, Armaan and Riddhima fall in love, Atul falls in love with Anjali, and Sapna Shah gets married and leaves Sanjeevani. Three new interns enter: Dr. Rahul Garewal, Dr. Muskaan Chadda, and Dr Nikita Malhotra. Muskaan and Rahul's families intend for them to marry, but they do not want to do so.
