‘Sasural Simar Ka’ completes 2,000 episodes


Mumbai: The cast of “Sasural Simar Ka” is elated as the popular TV show has completed 2,000 episodes.

‘Sasural Simar Ka” has completed 2,000 episodes and I really can’t believe it. This show is close to my heart as it came to me during my hiatus from television and compelled me to return to the silver screen,” Keerti Kelkar, who is seen as Simar in the Colors show, said in a statement.

Produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, the show went on air in April 2011.

Jayati Bhatia, who plays Mataji in the show, said: “‘Sasural Simar Ka’ for me is not just a show, it has become a part of my life. I am thankful and proud that the whole team of ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ held each other’s hand throughout the journey despite so many hurdles and marched forward.

“I am so proud that our show ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ completes 2,000 episodes. I have immense gratitude for all the love audience has showered on my character.”

Rohan Mehra excitedly shares, ‘We’re in a space where content driven shows are also not accepted by the audiences & unfortunately go off air in a span of few months. It is a tricky business to gain the acceptance of audiences these days. I’m happy to be associated with shows that reach this far. I was a part of Yeh Rishta when they completed 2000 episodes & this time for SSK… I feel lucky & also to be there in the show’s journey & enjoy all it’s ups n downs. It’s like crossing a milestone.’

The 2,000th episode will be aired on Tuesday.

Vaishali Thakker, who essays Anjali Sameer Kapoor, said: “I thank the makers for welcoming me into the family as Anjali. My vivid character has helped me grow as an actor. I wish ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ goes on for long. I am truly proud to be associated with the show.”
