Name Game

Would you have watched the saga of the Virani family if it were called Amma? Probably not. No wonder the makers decided to change it to Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. They felt Amma -- a name they toyed with -- was not catchy enough.

That is not the end of the name saga. Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi had already been registered by actor-director Sachin. But he willingly gave the name to Balaji Telefilms, the producers of the show. Kyunki was added because of the K factor proving lucky for the company.

The name game still does not end here! The protagonist Mihir was named after Ekta Kapoor's school friend Mihir Shah.
