Hi everyone ... i have seen many threads being opened about KMH sequel and all nearly asking the same quesitons ... so i thought why not just put it all in one thread !!
OK let me answer some of the common questions for you:
Is there a sequel ??
Will Karan and Kritika be apart of the sequel ??
What about the Story line ??
Well there are two options being considered by the balaji camp and they are to either carry on from the end of KMH, so basically we will be watching Arjuhi married life
Start fresh and follow the storyline of the Hollywood movie "A Walk to Remember"
When will it Start ???
Well hopefully it will start in September and the promos will be shown soon !!
I will add all of the previous Articles and confirmational messages here regarding KMH2
'Season 2 of Kitani Mohabbat Hai will be a bigger hit' - Nikhil Madhok
28 August 2010
Imagine's Kitani Mohabbat Hai is back on public demand, and here is Nikhil Madhok of Imagine, sharing this big news with the loyal fans of the show..
It's again the season of Love
, wherein viewers will get cuddled in the love trap of their favorite on screen pair, Karan Kundra and Kritika Kamra.
Yes, we are talking about the Season 2 of Kitani Mohabbat Hai on Imagine.
The show is all set for a new beginning and at the outset, TellyBuzz talks to Nikhil Madhok, Head Marketing and Communications, Imagine.
channel head talks about the plans related to KMH Season 2, about
setting a trend in itself by bringing in a new season for a daily soap,
on the favorite pairing of Karan and Kritika and much more..Kitani Mohabbat Hai is finally back with a sequel. What do you have to say from the channel's perspective?
we launched Season 1 of Kitani Mohabbat Hai, Ekta Kapoor was quite
clear that this love story for the youth will have a specific run of
episodes, unlike the other shows which go on for many years. She had a
plan of 7-8 months, but we wrapped it up in 6-7 months. However, we were
very sure that we will be coming back with a Season 2. Now that the
show is happening, we are confident that it will run much longer than
the Season 1. The first season of Kitani garnered a lot of
fan following. But this did not reflect in the ratings. Why do you think
See there is an interesting point in this!! When
Kitani was on air, it was the only show which had two slots. Over the
time, we observed that our TVR got split between these two slots. The
combined ratings from these two slots came up to 2.5 TVR. So the issue
was not with the rating. We had a plan to run it for 7-8 months, but
when we saw a dip in rating, we quickly decided not to drag it and leave
the audience with an urge to see more of this romance and magic. We
took a bit longer to get things rolling for Season 2; we wanted to
ensure that we have a good story that will keep the brand name of Kitani
Mohabbat Hai on top. We have got so many plusses from Season 1, and the
biggest asset is the superb chemistry between Karan Kundra and Kritika
Kamra. As you all know, they have been casted for Season 2 too Was the channel at any time apprehensive in making a Season 2?
at all!! As soon as we finished with Season 1, we started getting mails
and messages in huge numbers. It is almost a year since the show ended,
but believe it or not, we still continue to get requests from the loyal
viewers of Kitani Mohabbat Hai, requesting us to bring back their
favorite show. In fact, we are open to feed backs coming from you, fans.
We would like to welcome suggestions for the new screen names for Karan
and Kritika. We would want the fans to get involved in the development
of the show. This is the first daily soap that will see a Season 2, that too due to public demand. Your take on this.
till now we have seen Seasonal concepts for the popular reality shows.
This is a new trend that we are coming up with. We have been working on
the product for quite a while now. We are looking into all the finer
details, and this will be better in terms of look and feel, and
characterization. We are actively working on the marketing and
promotional strategies for the show. Presently, work is on for the first
promo of the show. We will be going on floors very soon, and overall we
are excited. When exactly did the channel take the decision of getting the show back?
soon after the first season ended, we had told our fans that we will
come back with a Season 2. So you can say that this decision was taken
last year. We expected Season 2 to get on air in July 2010, but it took a
bit longer than expected. Having said this, we are happy with the
script we have got. Also, we had to look into the dates of Karan and
Kritika. They were doing different shows, and we had to wait for them. What are the steps that the channel is taking to make the sequel better than the first one, in terms of ratings?
will be focussing a lot on promoting the show. Also, we are looking at
all the minute details like the look and feel, characterization, the way
they speak, the way they carry themselves, their hair style, dialogue
delivery etc. The magic will happen when everything will come together,
and you will see it in the first episode. If viewers have enjoyed the
first season, we are confident that they will doubly enjoy Season 2. I
would say Season 2 of Kitani Mohabbat Hai will be a bigger hit. Can we call it a sequel? We have heard that the story will be a fresh one and not a continuation to the first.
this is a Season 2 and not a sequel. We will have a fresh story to
tell. The factors that we carry forward from Season 1 are the chemistry
between the lead pair, the magic that they are capable of creating on
screen. We will retain the same soundtrack of the show, as that was a
big hit. The track has become a part of the KMH brand, and we do not
want to separate it. You must be aware that the ring tone of Kitani was a
massive hit. What do you have to say about the huge fan base that Karan Kundra and Kritika Kamra have got thro the show?
something fantastic!! Usually, it takes a couple of years for an actor
to achieve a loyal fan base, but they have managed to get it in just a
couple of months. The best part is that the fans have stayed pretty
loyal to them; they want to know what is happening in their lives even
when the show is not on. This speaks of their genuine passion. There is a
big demand to see them back as a couple on screen, and they feel that
is when the ultimate magic will happen. Frankly speaking, I am also a
big KMH fan and I am excited to see them together on screen. How will their characters in Season 2 be etched? Give us an idea.
I cannot talk much about it right now. All I can say is that, it will be very different from Season 1. Can you tell us something about the concept?
will be produced by Balaji Telefilms. The setting of the love story
this time will be different. First season saw the love story kick start
in a hill station, then moving forward in Mumbai. The typical nok-jhok
between Arjun and Aarohi was a big hit, and we will be keeping that
flavour intact. It will not be a typical love story; there will be ego
clashes even now. A brief on the other prominent actors in the show? We have heard that Mohan Kapoor has bagged a pivotal role.
have not started with the shoot, so I do not know the names that have
been locked. I think Mohan Kapoor will be in the show. We will be
getting some fresh faces, based on the character that we are playing on.
We have heard that Season 2 might be loosely based on the movie Satte Pe Satta.
Not at all!! We do not need any movie for inspiration. Is the show being developed by the same creative team who were involved in making the first?
's point of view, the team will be same. You have to ask Balaji Telefilms to know more. We have heard that the show is going on floors in the first week of September. When can we see the launch happening?
will be announcing the launch date very soon. We are finalizing all
details as of now; you should see the promo hit the screens in another
10-14 days. What do you have to tell the loyal viewers who are now thrilled with the channel's decision to get back their favorite show?
basically want to tell them two things. Firstly, it is time to
celebrate for KMH fans, as their loved show is back with Karan and
Kritika. Secondly, they need to spread the news to as many people as
they can. If more and more people watch the show this time, better will
it be for the success of the brand KMH. This will also provide us with a
good incentive to work forward. We need the much needed public support
to take the show to a higher level. Last but not the least, look for the
promos very soon!What can the viewers expect from Season 2? What time slot can we hope for this time?
has always shown romance better than anywhere else. This will be a
fresh story, which will basically start with the whole process of the
lead pair falling in love. We will have some fresh elements in the show.
Obviously, we will slot KMH season 2 at a prime time slot. We will also
want to ask the loyal fans of the show to give us a feedback on their
suitable time to watch KMH.

Imagine set for a revamp in September
24 July 2010
Imagine TV plans to bring in 5-6 new fictional shows soon....
TV has been hovering around the 80-90 GRP mark for quite a while and
has not been able to make a big breakthrough in terms of rating. The
fact that SAB TV
has over taken them in the GRP rates must be a concerning fact for the channel.
a result of this the channel is working on some new and different
concepts both in fiction as well as non-fiction to give them the much
needed impetus. As a first step towards improvement the channel gave an
abrupt end to their fiction shows like Kashi
after the show failed to deliver.
The buzz is that months of August and September are very crucial for ongoing fiction shows on Imagine
The channel is planning for a major revamp sometime in September
wherein they will be coming up with at least 5-6 new fiction shows.
An industry source tells us, "Imagine
is in talks with plenty of production houses and as many as 6 new fictional shows are in pipeline. Balaji Telefilms
is reading itself to launch the much awaited sequel of Kitani Mohobbat Hai sometime in septmber. Rajshri Productions
who is presently producing Do Hanson Ka Jodaa
for the channel has another show coming. Shashi Mittal
makers of Sajan Ghar Jaana Hai have a show in pipeline for Imagine
. Talks are on with Shakuntalam Tlefilms
, Sagar Arts
, Paresh Rawal's Playtime Creations
and Swastik Pictures
for fiction shows."
will be launching a very unique chat show with female celebrities Meethi Chhoori No.1
We tried calling Saurabh Tewari
, programming head Imagine
and even sent him a text message but did not get any response.
While it is a do or die situation for the presently running shows on Imagine
; viewers can surely look forward to some brand new programming on the channel in the coming month.Reporter & Author: Ranjini Nair.
Pre- production work on the sequel of,
Kitne Mohobbat Hai is on full swing'
As accounted earlier that Imagine
TV's serial Kitani Mohabbat Hai
was popular among
the viewers because of the on screen chemistry shared between Karan Kundra
and Kritika Kamra
. But it could never achieve a
mark on the TRP ratings due to which the channel had to call off the
it seems this time the viewers choice has been strongly considered and
finally after receiving innumerable petition mails and messages from the
fans, on public demand the channel and Ekta Kapoor
is all grooved to produce a sequel
of the same.
So we have some information to cool down anxiety of
our readers about the story line and cast of the serial..
latest buzz is that the serial will not continue from the point where it
had ended instead; it will have a completely new story based on the
romantic narratives from the novel Mills & Boons.
Also as far
as the casting of the serial is concerned, the viewers are surely in
for a treat as they will get an opportunity to re-enjoy the chemistry of
and Kritika Kamra
and the casting for other
characters is in full swing and the creatives are planning to wind it up
in 2-3 weeks.
So viewers can now look forward to watch their
long awaited show Kitne Mohobbat Hai in Mills & Boons style.Reporter:

have today become big names in the television industry,
courtesy the enormous fan following that they were bestowed with, for
essaying the very cute love birds Arjun and Arohi
and Balaji Telefilms' Kitani Mohabbat Hai.
Karan and Kritika were a hit
as a Jodi ever since the inception of the show, and went on to have a
hug fan base. But the loyal viewers of the show got a jolt when Kitani Mohabbat Hai
was given an abrupt end
by the channel in September last year.
This actually brought
huge uproar, and the fans started sending petitions to the channel
demanding a sequel of the show.
According to our source, "The
extremely angry fans flooded the email inboxes of Imagine and its
executives and demanded an explanation for the abrupt end, and also
requested for the return of the show. In fact, during the course of one
weekend alone, over 6400 fans signed a petition urging the channel to
bring back their favorite show. We have now got into the New Year, but
this does not stop the fans from continuing with their petitions and
requests. All this has made the channel to think seriously, and it now
looks as though the channel has understood the huge potential that Kitani Mohabbat Hai
has when it comes to the
The latest news on this front is that talks are
certainly on between the channel and production house for a sequel.
little birdie tells us, "The continuous outburst of fans has in fact
forced the channel to work on the sequel. Talks are certainly on, and
the channel and production house have taken it ahead. Though the plans
are still on paper, it seems as though there are bright chances of the
sequel coming up. The production house has started to work on the
script, but is tight-lipped at the moment. The channel and production
house do realize that if at all they are bringing back the love story of
Arjun and Arohi, the script this time has to be bigger and better. If
all goes well, Karan Kundra
and Kritika Kamra
continue to be the lead pair in the sequel, while the production house
might go on a look out for fresh cast for the other characters".
our sources are to be believed, things will be very clear by mid May or
June. It is also heard that the abrupt ending given to Sony's Pyaar Ka
Bandhan which had Kritika Kamra
in it, is
proof enough that the planning for the sequel is certainly on.
contacted, Kritika Kamra
told us, "Yes, I have also heard that talks are on for a
sequel of Kitani Mohabbat Hai
I have not been approached so far for it". Karan Kundra
too echoed the same and said, "Though I have not been directly
approached, I have heard that talks are on for the same between the
production house and channel. But nothing is clear as of now".
sent a text message to Shailja Kejriwal, EVP Content, Imagine but we
did not get a response from her.
We also sent a text message to
Ekta Kapoor but did not get any revert. Guess it will be a
huge moral victory for the loyal fans of the show, if they do see their
favorite show coming back'.

is Harsh Rohatgi in an exclusive conversation with TellyBuzz..How
is it to head the team at Imagine?
It's pretty good. I am gearing up
for the challenge. What are the plans ahead for you and your
There will be no radical change as such. It is just that we
will have a change in the way in which we approach things. We will be
working more on the daily fiction shows. We will see new and interesting
plots coming. We will continue to work with the top production houses
like Balaji Telefilms, Sphere Origin, BBC etc. We want to maintain an
edge when it comes to innovative non reality shows, and good fiction
concepts. Can you give us few examples?
We have Desi
Girl coming shortly, which is a good example of cross pollinating ideas.
It is an interesting show that will bring together the urban and rural
set ups. In the next five weeks, we should be launching two good fiction
shows. We also have a reality show coming, which is based on the lines
of a show aired in the Turner channel in Korea. How has IPL
affected the viewership of Imagine
IPL has affected all
channels equally. Set Max had a GRP of above 450 during IPL, and I
believe that more than 250 GRPs came from the GEC viewers. I would say

audience is willing to watch newer concepts, and we are ready to
experiment. That's what I would say. Do you think that the
second season of Swayamvar featuring Rahul Mahajan created less buzz
when compared to Rakhi Sawant?
It's not like that. The timing was
also different this time when compared to the last season. Even then,
there was an overall buzz about the show, and we had reactions coming
in. Are you now planning a third season of Swayamvar on Imagine?
Yes, talks are certainly on with
few people. Is it that the cricketers are being targeted this
I would not comment on it, as we are talking to many
people as of now. Tell us something about Desi Girl?
Girl is again a good concept. We will see some great interaction
between the urban and rural people. It's a fun show, and will be
interesting to watch. When is Desi Girl to launch?
Girl will launch on 21st May. It is a weekend show, and will air every
Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The concept is for 8 weeks. Imagine
has seen a lot of item girls like Rakhi
Sawant, Kashmera Shah, Sambhavna etc being offered limelight. Is this
intentional to grab more eye balls?
They are TV's friendly
characters, isn't it?How is your present fiction line up
We are doing really well. We have some top shows like Bandini
Hanson Ka Jodaa
. We have two relatively new
shows in Kashi
which will take time to get a hold on the
audience. Which according to you is the best fiction show on
We have heard that a
sequel of Kitani Mohabbat Hai is being planned. So can you update us
about the plans?
Yes, the show is being brought back, courtesy
fans' demand. The show is now in its planning stage. Your
GRP's have always remained between the 90- 100 GRP mark. How do you see
In another few weeks' time, we should get to that
120+ mark. With the introduction of new programs, we will surely want
to push the mark further ahead. There has been a trend
observed wherein, the channel gets a push in GRPs only when the reality
shows are on. Will you not want more consistency coming from the fiction
shows when it comes to ratings?
Yes, this is one reason why we
have now decided that all our reality shows will be getting weekend
slots, rather than daily slots. We will not disturb the fiction line-up
from now to accommodate non fiction shows. This is why we have placed
Desi Girl at the weekend slot. What is the next objective
when it comes to Imagine?
will want to reach the 200+ GRP
mark first, and take things from there..

After reality shows, it's daily soaps that will have
sequels. Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms once produced a sequel to their
show Kutumb on Sony.
Now, Kapoor's Kitani
Mohabbat Hai that went off air from Imagine last year is
ready to make a comeback with Season Two.
The show is expected to
return to the tube in two months on the same channel. Kritika Kamra and
Karan Kundra, the lead pair of the daily, will continue as the
protagonists this time too.
The story is expected to be
different from Season One ' replete with new characters, for which, the
auditions are on. Kamra and Kundra, both of whom are Kapoor's
discoveries, were romantically linked in the course of the show and are
currently seen as competitors on Zara Nachke Dikha.
