Casting

Hina Khan was selected to play the role of Akshara.[27] Karan Tacker was initially roped for the role of Naitik, but was replaced by Karan Mehra a day away the promo shoot as Tacker became skeptical. Speaking about it producer Rajan Shahi said, “Karan (Tacker) refused to be a part of the show a day and a half prior to shooting the promo. I needed to hunt for a new face on immediate basis. I accidentally met Karan Mehra, a real life replica of my fictitious character Naitik.”[28]

In June 2016, Karan Mehra quit the show owing health issues.[29] Two sequences were shot before his exit: one was his death track and other was his kidnap track and decision was made to carry forward the story with the kidnapping track.[30] Then, he was replaced by Vishal Singh in August 2019, making his entry with the Kidnap sequence in Switzerland.[31] Soon, in November 2016, Hina Khan quit as her character became monotonous for her and she was shown killed in a car accident.[32] Then, parallel lead Shivangi Joshi playing Naira and recurring one Mohsin Khan playing Kartik, who entered in May 2016, became the leads of the show and the character Naitik became a recurring one since.[4]

In 2012, Sanjay Gandhi playing Mahendra quit due to the issues between him and his co-actors Sonali Verma and Sandeep Mehta who was then replaced by Abhijit Lahiri.[33] The latter also quit after the death of his character in March 2015.[34] In December 2013, Sonali Verma playing Gayathri Singhania quit owing to her marriage and her character was shown dead after a fall from a cliff.[35]

In December 2014, Ather Habib playing Shaurya quit as he felt nothing more was there to explore in his character and was replaced by Yash Gera.[6] Gera also quit in 2017 due to the same reason as that of Habib.[36] He was replaced by Sameer Sharma in the spin-off series.[37] Aman Sharma playing Anshuman quit as he wanted to search for better opportunities and was replaced by Dheeraj Gumbar who also quit.[38]

In 2015, Ayush Agarwal quit due to personal reasons and was replaced by Shamik Abbas. In May 2016, Umang Jain playing Tara and her on-screen family members quit as the story started to focus on other tracks after the cancellation of her and Naksh's (Rohan Mehra) wedding in the show as Hina Khan playing Akshara refused playing the role of a mother in law.[39]

Speaking about Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai's success producer Rajan Shahi said, "Well, to be honest, Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai doing well is something we have to strive for each and every day. When a show completes this number of episodes, it becomes a challenge as to how to sustain the show. There are so many topics to choose from and there are so many relationships, so that becomes a major challenge, to keep the freshness alive. Drama, intrigue, etc is just a part of storytelling but to still keep the essence alive that is the challenge, it is always a day to day battle.”[66]

The series is mainly filmed in the Film City at Goregaon in Mumbai.[67][68] As it based on the families in Udaipur of Rajasthan, some were also filmed there.[69][70] Some sequences were also filmed in Rishikesh during 2016 and March 2018.[71][72] In March 2017, the wedding track of Kartik and Naira was filmed in a grand manner in Bikaner, Rajasthan.[73]

Reception

Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was touted as the biggest weekday prime time fiction launch in past three years during 2009.[82]
