‘Uttaran’ completes 900 episodes, team celebrates (With Images)June 22nd, 2012 - 6:07 pm ICT by IANS
Mumbai, June 22 (IANS) Popular TV show “Uttaran”, which had two generation leaps since it went on air in 2008, will complete a run of 900 episodes.
The cast and the crew of the show celebrated the milestone Thursday by cutting a cake.
“I’m very happy that the show has reached this milestone. I feel I’m the luckiest person in Indian television industry, whose first serial has completed 900 episodes,” Tina said in a press statement.
“Uttaran” went on air in December 2008 on Colors, as a story of two girls - Ichcha, who belonged to slums, and Tapasya, who belonged to a rich family. It traced the ups and downs of their friendship, given their different economic background. The title of the show stood as a metaphor for the hand-me-downs that the poor girl received from the rich girl.
The storyline took a 10-year leap forward in 2009 and actors Tina and Rashmi Desai were introduced. Tina, who has continued her association with the show as Ichcha even post the latest leap in March, is excited.
Currently, the story of “Uttaran” focusses on Ichcha and Tapasya. While Tapasya has a daughter Mukta, Ichcha has three children - Kanha, whom she adopted, as well as Meethi and son Yuvraj.
When “Uttaran”, produced by Pintoo Guha, hit the small screen, it was lapped up by the audience for its fresh content.
“The show has worked so well that it proves the fact that everyone works together as a team to better every scene. Completing 900 episodes is a rare feat indeed and I wish the team of ‘Uttaran’ hearty congratulations for supporting us for so long,” said Guha.
