Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai is an Indian television show that airs on StarPlus and is also available on Disney+ Hotstar as a digital release. It started on January 12, 2009, and as of 2019, it was the longest-running Indian television soap opera, having aired over 3000 episodes.

It previously starred Hina Khan, Karan Mehra, Shivangi Joshi, and Mohsin Khan and was produced by Rajan Shahi under Director's Kut Productions. It will star Harshad Chopda, Pranali Rathod, and Karishma Sawant as the show's third generation begins in October 2021. 

A spin-off, Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke, starring Rhea Sharma and Shaheer Sheikh, premiered in March 2019. Mishti, Naira's cousin, and Abir's love storey were the focus of the series. In October 2020, the series came to a conclusion after 355 episodes.

What's This Relationship Called, Star Plus' most popular show, has celebrated several milestones throughout the years. Now it's time for another celebration at home, as Leeds Mohsin Khan and Shewangi Joshi have completed 1,200 episodes together on the show.

Fans refer to Mohsin and Shewangi as Kaira, the most popular character on television. They've both tried to make their audience fall in love with them by using their powerful and relevant chemistry. The couple has gone through many ups and downs over the course of 1,200 episodes and has grown stronger together on TV. Furthermore, the trust they have placed in each other is rarely seen these days, despite the fact that it is something that certain couples demonstrate on a regular basis. That's all there is to it.

Thanks to Rajan Shahi, the show's creator and producer, for producing a show that has lasted so long. In recent episodes, the show has felt a little disjointed, but it appears like the YRKKH crew is in for a treat. Kaira's trip has undoubtedly been a roller coaster ride, and we hope to witness some of the highlights in the upcoming episodes.

The storey of Akshara Maheshwari and Naitik Singhania was the starting point for Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. Both characters are from Marwari joint households, and their marriage is recommended by the family's spiritual advisor.
