Kumkum Bhagya (Vermilion In My Fate) (International Title: Twist of Fate) is an Indian soap opera created and produced by Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms for Zee TV. It premiered on 15 April 2014.[2][3] The show stars Sriti Jha and Shabir Ahluwalia. It is loosely based on Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen.[1]

The series started as the story of Pragya and Bulbul, and their mother, Sarla's hope to see them married, but as time went by, the show revolved around Abhi and Pragya. The pivotal characters of this show are strong, feisty women, living together in an all-female, matriarchal family.

On 18 March 2019, after Abhi and Pragya's separation in the show, a twenty-year leap was introduced. Post-leap, Pragya and Abhi are shown separated with their twins. Mugdha Chapekar and Naina Singh are introduced as Abhi and Pragya's separated twin daughters.[4] The series now will focus on Abhi, Pragya and their young college-going twin daughters Prachi and Riya.[5][6]

The show is popular due to the chemistry of the leads. Kumkum Bhagya received acclaim throughout its run, becoming one of the most popular television shows.[7][8] Kumkum Bhagya had won 50 Awards so far in various categories including the Award for "Best Tv Show" 4 times.[9]

Plot

Kumkum Bhagya: Bhagya Milayega Unhe Jo He Bilkul Alag

(English: Vermilion In My Fate: Destiny brought two different personalities together)

Pragya and Bulbul help their mother Sarla run the Kumkum Bhagya marriage hall. The series begins with a short-lived love triangle between Pragya - Suresh - Bulbul, leading to the cancellation of Pragya and Suresh engagement. In parallel, Abhishek is in a relationship with the supermodel, Tanushree. Purab Khanna, is Abhishek's best friend and music handler. Purab owns an advertising agency where he hires Bulbul. After some conflict, they confess their love for each other. But Abhi expects Purab to marry his sister, Aliya. However, Aliya presumes Purab loves Pragya who has trapped him for money. Unfortunately Abhishek believes without listening to Purab. So Aliya, Abhishek and Tanu plot revenge. Abhi's Dadi has met and liked Pragya so for revenge Abhi agrees to marry Pragya.

Post-marriage, Pragya realizes the truth and accepts the blame to protect Bulbul. On the day the marriage is fixed for Purab and Aliya, Purab abandons Aliya and marries Bulbul. Various situations and circumstances bring Abhishek and Pragya closer. Realising the wrongdoings of Aliya and Tanushree, Abhishek reconciles with Purab and Bulbul. Desperate to get Abhishek back, Tanushree fakes a DNA report to imply that he is the father of her unborn child, which is actually the result of a one-night stand between her and Nikhil. Pragya realises the truth but suffers an accident and is declared dead, before she could reveal the truth to Abhi.

The story takes a 2-month leap and Pragya returns to exact revenge on her wrongdoers by becoming the owner of Abhi's properties. In the meantime, jealousy and hatred begins to grow in the relationship of Bulbul, Purab, and Aliya. Bulbul risks her life and dies while saving Pragya from Aliya. The season ends with Pragya exposing Tanushree and winning back Abhishek's trust. They propose each other. However, Abhishek gets into an accident and loses his memory. He forgets the last two-and-a-half years of his life, including Pragya.

(English: Vermilion In My Fate: Does fate brings Abhi and Pragya together again)

Two months after leaving Abhi, Pragya starts working at the Love Life Music Company. She meets Abhishek again. However, taking advantage of Abhi's memory loss, his sister Aliya decides to get him married to Tanu. However, Nikhil kidnaps Pragya and Abhi leaves the rituals to rescue her. Abhi regains his memory but he soon loses Pragya for she is shot by the goons and falls into the dam.

Weeks after Pragya has been shot, Abhi meets her lookalike named Munni. He takes her home where Aliya blackmails Munni to side with them. Meanwhile, Pragya, who is alive, comes out of coma and swaps places with Munni. On the other hand, Purab and Disha's love story begins to bloom. She proposes to him and he decides to move on from Bulbul and give their marriage a chance!

Enter another villain Simonika, Abhi's secretary. She plans to take her revenge for he has killed her husband Dushyant. In a barter, Tanu asks Simonika to spare Abhi and kill Pragya instead. However, Simonika ends up murdering Dadi who reaches the factory before Pragya to save her life.

Both Abhi and Aliya blame Pragya for Dadi's death. Abhi asks Pragya to leave, thus, a heart-broken and grief-stricken Pragya is shown attempting suicide by jumping off a cliff.

(English: Vermilion In My Fate: New Chapter)

The jump changed all the dynamics shared by the Abhi, Pragya and their families. 7 years later, Abhi is now married to Tanu, while Pragya is living in the United Kingdom with King Singh, a London- based rapper. She also has a daughter from Abhi, named Kiara. Abhi and Pragya both still believe the latter is responsible for Dadi's death.

As destiny would have it, both Abhi and King are offered a world music album and thus, the latter flies to India with Pragya and Kiara.

Kiara and Abhishek meet in Delhi, where the Mehra family now lives, and become good friends. Hence, Abhi only finds out about Kiara being his daughter at Neha's wedding, Mitali and Raaj's daughter.

However, Purab and Disha suggest Abhi get a DNA test done. Reports come positive and Abhi finds out that Kiara is his child. Abhi comes to know that King and Pragya are not married for real. He then decides to remarry Pragya. To drive a wedge between Abhi and Pragya, Tanu tells the latter that Abhishek only wants to marry her to get Kiara. This angers Pragya and she reprimands Abhi. The two, however, get stuck in a mall which has been held captive by a group of terrorists.

Two months after their reunion, Abhi and Pragya are expecting twins. A jealous Tanu tries to kill Pragya and her unborn babies, but Abhi, Aliya and others kick her out of the house. King too realises his mistake and decides to protect Pragya from Tanu.

Everybody at the Mehra mansion is thrilled at the new members soon joining the family, except Tanu. She reaches out to her old friend Nikhil and instigates him to take revenge from Abhi by murdering Pragya and her twins. Nikhil enters Mehra mansion with the intention of killing Pragya and her twins but Kiara identifies him as the man who killed her John uncle. To save himself from being exposed, he changes his plan and kidnaps Kiara. Nikhil then calls Abhi – Pragya to ask for ransom money, but eventually plans to end Kiara's life to complete his revenge.

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[23]
Filming location at Delhi

The series is a love story[24] 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 April 15, 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.[25] 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."[26] 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".[26]

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."[26]

Casting

Cast of Kumkum Bhagya

After only a few weeks of its launch and was touted as the biggest fiction launch of 2014.[41] The serial is very popular among Indian and Pakistani women.[42] The show also gave tough fight to GEC leader Diya Aur Baati Hum that airs at same slot on Star Plus. On the reception of the show in such a short span of time, Zee TV business head Pradeep Hejmadi announced that he considered the 'wedding track' a very important inflection point for people to gravitate to the series, believing it to be attracting increasing interest in all parameters. He also added "Each story has its own promise and people who tune in are people who are bought into those promises or are keen to explore the relationships or the characters that stand out speaking to them. We concentrated on bringing out the key inflection points for the show and it was important because it is the core promise of Kumkum Bhagya."[43]

Later, the series further raised to 13.5 million impressions (urban + rural) when the production decided to introduce Tannu's DNA report storyline.
