Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behna Hai (English: My Sister is One in a Thousand) was a daily Indian soap opera with the first series airing on STAR Plus from 3 October 2011 through 13 September 2013 and eventually the show got replaced by the mythlogical series Mahabharat. The show is based on the relationship of two sisters, Jeevika (played by Krystle D'Souza) and Manvi (played by Nia Sharma).

Plot summary[edit]

The story revolves around sisters Jeevika and Manvi Chaudhary who live in Rishikesh. Their male leads are Viren and Virat Vadhera, two brothers who come from an extremely wealthy family in Chandigarh. Jeevika and Viren get married and she leaves for Chandigarh to live with the Vadhera family. Meanwhile, Virat begins to fall for Manvi. It is soon revealed that Manvi has blood cancer and needs a bone marrow transplant to survive. Jeevika, Virat and Manvi go to Mumbai to get Manvi's treatment started. Over there, she too realizes her love for Virat but denies it in front of Viraat because she doesn't want to ruin his life since she has cancer.Meanwhile, Jeevika gets pregnant. At last, they find a donor but all his 6 bones marrows doesn't match Manvi's so Jeevika was left with no other choice than aborting her baby to save Manvi but Manvi denies her to abort the baby for her sake and asks her to promise that she will never abort the baby. Jeevika promises but soon breaks the promise and becomes Manvi's donor. Soon Manvi and Virat get married. Both the sisters later have a daughter each, Mansi and Jahnvi.

Seema played a strict women and the main antagonist but later her character turned positve.[3]


The show got very good response from the audience and loved the story of two sisters. The show got millions of fans watching it just because of the 4 main leads especially the couple Jeevika and Viren (played by Krystle & Karan). When the story went ahead and started showing Maanvi's cancer, the show's TRP's increased in 2012. The show slowly started to lose viewers in 2013 and therefore the show came to an end in September 2013.
