The show which is still garnering loads of attention amongst it’s dedicated viewers has changed its track recently. The show is now focusing on the new lot of Kundan and his second marriage and Anandi’s estranged child Nimboli who is also the first child bride of Kundan. Further the series has undergone a transformation in Jagya’s track as well, playing the role of a father to a teenaged boy; Jagya’s track lately has not been much explored.
