Season 3

Special Appearances
Season 1


The show was produced by Karan Chagar along with Tony and Deeya Singh of DJ Creative Unit (they have worked together for Lakshmi).


Due to the comeback of Rithvik Dhanjani, the show made a grand entry into Indian television. The Times of India wrote - Rithvik is one of the most hottest popular actors and is making his comeback to television almost two years post Pavitra Rishta. At the beginning of December 2015, Kavita Avashthi interviewed Yuvika and intorduced her stating that "I had seen Yuvika when she appeared on Om Shanti Om and yet again in Bigg Boss and she made a mark with her effervescent character of Simran Sharda. The story of the show may be interesting, but a large part of its success is because of her chemistry with co-star Rithivik Dhanjani. The chemistry between the two pulled the TRP's up. In January 2016, the show went up to be one of the most successful popular shows and took the position at 4th place. In mid of January 2016 when Rithvik Dhanjani left the show, Shraddha Sharma stated Iss Jahan Kis Jagaa Hain was typical of "All serials start off brilliantly with immense promise and somewhere in the middle they get lost in the maze of TRPs, cheap publicity and making what sells."Bhandari had appreciated that when the series had started." After Rithvik was replaced by Arjun Luthra, the show fans was first upset but then appreciated and accepted him as Kunal. Shraddha Singh said - Arjun is one of the newest hottest hunks and popular actors on TV as he was praised for his work in Zee TV's Pyaar Nibhana Yeh Rishta and is an excellent replacement for Rithvik. In February 2016, when Yuvika also left the show, fans were willing on getting her back as Simran's daughter but Yuvika had refused to play a Daughter as well due to illness. Post the leap, the show's TRP's increased and in March beginning the show had loved the chemistry between Arjun and Shraddha. In April 2016, the show was in the news as yet again Arjun decided to leave the show as his new film shooting is clashing between with the show and got replaced by Viraf Patel. Bollywood life had said - The character Kunal Sareen and the show is just the same to what happened to Barun Sobti who played Arnav in Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon. The show is now going off air due to the exit of Arjun which was decided by the makers even though the show is very popular.


The makers are planning to do a squeal to the series as it is very popular due to its actors Arjun and Shraddha. It has been confirmed that the main leads Shraddha & Viraf are not a part of the show along with others except for Akshara who will play Nikita's daughter. It has started its shooting and will go on air in August.
