KSKBT fast forwards to the future next week

If you have had no problems keeping track of 21 members of the Virani family, try dealing with 32 as India's Numero Uno Hindi family drama Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi fast forwards 20 years into the future from next week.

Star Plus, that has been riding high on the TRP charts thanks to the Balaji soap for the last one and half years, is now making efforts to ensure that viewers stay glued and devoted to the next generation of Viranis as well. A new marketing initiative in the form of a mock remote control, with details of the new avatar KSBKBT, coupled with the extended Virani family tree, has been doing the rounds of local media.

The channel will telecast a wrap up of the serial thus far on a special episode this Saturday at 8:30 pm. From next Monday, Mihir, to the sorrow of his fans, will be out of the serial. Get ready for a gracefully aging Tulsi, and the numerous progeny of the rest of the third generation Viranis, as the serial zooms into 2022. The rest of the present cast is unchanged. The new entrants in the cast include Ritu Chaudhary, Mehul Kajaria, Mausami Mewawalla, Hansika Motwani, Sandeep Baswana and others.

The injection of innovation into KSBKBT has in all probability been inspired by the plateau that the serial had struck in its storyline recently. Earlier this week, a member of the first generation, Goverdhan Virani, breathed his last on the serial, paving the way for a change in the plot.
