About The Show

The story focuses on the wealthy Virani family, which hails from Gujarat. The Viranis are quite successful and well-known in the corporate world. The story is mainly focused on Tulsi Virani, daughter of the family priest, who elopes with the family's eldest son, Mihir. The entire family except Govardhan Virani (the patriach) and Amba Virani (the matriarch) (played by Sudha Shivpuri) are against it. Due to anger, the daughters-in-law of the family, Savita (Apara Mehta), Daksha (Ketaki Dave) and Gayatri (Kamalika Guhathakurta) blame Tulsi for charming Mihir into marrying her and entering their rich household from a smaller, middle-class family. However, due to respect and belief in God Shri Shrinathji, called Thakurji, a form of Lord Krishna, Tulsi fights the injustice and battles her mother-in-law and devranis (wives of the younger brothers of a woman's husband). Sudha Shivpuri is noted TV actor, who is most famous for her role as Baa in the Hindi TV serial Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi (2000-2007). ... Krishna (IAST , the Sanskrit for dark or black) (see below), is according to common Hindu tradition the eighth avatar of Vishnu. ...

The entire serial focuses on the battle between the mothers-in-law and Tulsi and in the process teaching them a lesson and earning respect from her family members. Along the road, many new characters enter the scene. The old characters who decide to discontinue are promptly replaced by new ones (following an accident and plastic surgery explaining the new face).

Return of Smriti Irani

As of April 10, 2008, Smriti Irani once again reprised her role as Tulsi Virani and replace Gautami Kapoor. This is after a break of over 8 months. It was at the Balaji Global Indian Television Awards held a few months ago where Balaji chief Ekta Kapoor and Smriti decided to patch up, after the latter left the show.


The show initially focussed on staying true to what the title suggests, but later, as every other K-Soap (Soaps from Balaji Telefilms) the show lost its path and strayed into many other plots.But Now the story as well as ratings are progressing.Criticisms are just to hamper its glorious success of 8 years.Only Balaji can make a 7-8 year long serial and if god makes u doesent mean that u'll always have happy and successful life, life has its ups and downs and in the same way k serials have ups and downs but kyunki is the best soap opera on Indian Television
