Within a very short span of time since its launch in October 2012, Zee TV’s Qubool Hai took the nation by storm with its progressive depiction of a modern Muslim family, its fine narrative, intriguing plot and well-defined characters played convincingly by some very talented actors. The show recently completed a successful run of 500 episodes! This called for a big celebration on the sets where everyone from the cast and crew got together for a giant cake-cutting.
Having captivated millions of viewers across the world, the show is now progressing to an even more interesting turn of events. The show started out with the journey of gutsy Zoya Farooqui and the idealistic, perfectionist Asad – two starkly different personalities whose paths crossed beautifully by the designs of destiny. Their initial reservations and misgivings about each other made way for a romance that bloomed on Indian television. Surbhi Jyoti became an unforgettable part of viewers’ lives, essaying the role of Zoya effortlessly – a modern, vibrant, new-age girl who not only respects her family & traditions, but also defies archaic stereotypes and challenges hypocrisy in the society. A compelling mixture of drama and romance, Qubool Hai created a phenomenal craze and commanded unmatched loyalty on television. The show emerged to be one of Zee TV’S top-rated fiction properties, introducing characters like Zoya, Asad, Aahil, Sanam, Seher, Tanveer, Nikhat, Dilshad, Mumani that instantly became everyone’s favorite dinner table companions.
Entering a new phase after a leap of 20 years, the audiences are rejoicing the new chapter and have showered similar love & affection on Zoya’s daughter Sanam. The fresh paring of Sanam & Aahil has been welcomed by viewers with open arms as their intense chemistry is already creating waves and their impending love story is eagerly awaited by everyone! Entry of Sanam’s identical twin sister Seher and her hit and miss with Sanam and Tanveer, presents yet another surprising twist for the viewers. Seen in an all-new avatar post the leap, the epitome of evil Tanveer is up for more plotting & scheming on the show, trying every trick with her wicked mind to separate Sanam & Aahil. Living with a dark past of having pulled off a huge massacre at Asad’s house, she is leaving no stone unturned in preventing Sanam from discovering the truth about her parents’ killer!
With every character springing one surprise after another, will Sanam & Seher ever come face to face …? Will Aahil ever confess his love for Sanam? Who will unearth Tanveer’s dark, malicious activities and hold her accountable for all she’s done …All these questions will lead to unimaginable twists & turns in the lives of Qubool Hai’s protagonists, bound to keep the audience on the edge of their seats!
Speaking about crossing the 500 episode milestone, Namit Sharma, Programming Head, Zee TV, says, “The completion of 500 episodes is the first of many milestones for a show like Qubool Hai. It speaks of the viewers’ love for the protagonists of Qubool Hai, whose lives they’re hooked onto. The show wove magic right from the start with its love story of Zoya & Asad and the changing dynamics between their families. The story has shot forward with a 20 year leap and the transition has been well received by the audience –be it the love-hate relationship of Sanam- Aahil, Tanveer’s evil ways, addition of new characters Rehaan, Rahat & Faiz or the entry of Sanam’s twin sister Seher, the show has captivated audiences through and through. We are sure that Qubool Hai will keep raising the bar and continue to provide audiences more drama and excitement as the story progresses!”
Actor Surbhi Jyoti shares her excitement on 500 episode completion “It feels awesome that Qubool Hai has completed 500 episodes. For me, it is a very big thing since I have been with this show right since its inception and in a way, this show belongs to me and I belong to this show. Even today if I look back, I can’t believe that Qubool Hai has already covered a 500 episode journey. I hope that there are at least 500 more episodes to go. This beautiful journey has given me a lot of special moments … the day I was signed to play Zoya Farooqi remains etched in my heart …there’s been no looking back ever since. I would like to thank the creative team as they’ve shown immense faith in me as an actor and made me play 3 different characters in the same show. Qubool Hai has challenged me and brought out the versatility in me as an actor. Not many artists get such a brilliant opportunity on the small screen. Lastly, I would like to say that I feel blessed as none of this would have been possible without the love and support of my fans. My heartfelt thanks to all of them”.
