The series was approached initially for the channels Star Plus and Zee TV. When they rejected the series, Sony SAB accepted the script.[44]

I approached every channel, but the trend of daily soaps had just started, and saas-bahu shows dominated the scene. Whoever I approached said there was no scope for comedy every day. But I had a feeling that one day comedies, too, would become a daily trend. Finally, in 2008, Taarak Mehta... came on air."[52]
