The show comes on the Balaji Telefilms stable. Balaji Telefilms has a good track record of churning out hit dramas & is the biggest TV studio when it comes to hindi serials. With their years of experience in producing dramas, they are well versed with the pulse of the audiences. Ekta Kapoor has relied on one of her frequent collaborators – Shabbir Ahluwalia to star in the project. Shabbir being a seasoned actor performs his part very convincingly. He is clearly a scene stealer. As is the case with most of Ekta Kapoor’s shows, this show too has strong female characters in it. Sriti Jha is superb in her part as Pragya. Mrunal Thakur essays her part well. The supporting casts too are perfectly cast for their roles. Special mention goes to Leena Jumani who plays Tanushree – the vamp.
