Her shows have always taken inspiration from Bollywood or Hollywood movies, examples being, “Kya Huaa Tera Vaada” heavily inspired from, Salman Khan starrer “Biwi No 1” and, “Pyaar Ki Ye Ek Kahaani” loosely based on the Hollywood hit, “The Twilight Saga”.

Raman takes the legal course for getting the custody of their two children. Two names of actors, Iqbal Khan and Anupriya Kapoor, are in consideration, for playing the leads. Anita Hassanandani, a regular of Balaji Telefilms, may be seen playing a cameo role.
