Zee Tv shows have always entertained the audience with unique storylines. Kumkum Bhagya’s twisted tale of love has always kept the viewer engaged, even though the show has now run for about six years, and seen a two-decade leap. Even now when Abhi and Pragya cross paths, there is a heartbeat skipping moment that each one of us goes through. The show has kept us entertained in the past, and will continue to do so, but do you believe that this show’s storyline matches with some other films and books?

Kumkum Bhagya’s track based on two sisters Pragya and Bulbul, can be traced to Jane Austen’s novel Sense and Sensibilities, this novel is based on the story of two sisters who fall in love with the men of their dreams, and lose them only to realise that their hearts lie elsewhere. But after the leap and their firstborn Kiara’s death, Abhi and Pragya’s separation of their twins and bringing them up into completely different people, is something right out of the film Parent Trap, starring Lindsay Lohan as a child artiste. There is also a Danielle Steel novel, The Mirror which is based upon twin sisters who have completely different personalities and are often at loggerheads!
The Shraddha Arya and Dheeraj Dhooper starrer spin-off Kundali Bhagya also resembles a drama. Do you want to know which one this is? The Korean dramas often have stories revolving around a couple and third wheel, but such a strong story in which both brothers fall in love with the same girl, is Dr. Cutie (Korean show). The romantic comedy shows the complications of relationships. Do you also remember Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt starrer Saajan? The brothers fall in love with the same girl played by Madhuri Dixit.
We all know that Never Kiss Your Best Friend, starring Nakuul Mehta is based on Sumrit Shahi’s novel, but are there some other ZEE5 Originals based upon similar stories or novels? Code M is supposed to have been born out of a real incident, and is very interestingly twisted. The Broken but beautiful ZEE5 original, starring Vikrant Massey and Harleen Sethi, is somewhat similar to the novel, To All Boys I Have Loved Before. The story begins with a broken-hearted Sameera, who is consoled by Veer, and they decide to part ways, and date other people only to realise they belong with each other!
