Flashback: Seven Shows that aired in 2000
The year 2000 was an iconic year for Indian Television. It was the year that brought in a new flavour in story telling. While many Balaji Telefilms helmed under Ekta Kapoor hit the screens all of them went on to become overnight hits. People enjoyed the drama, the dailies as well as elements they could predict yet find engaging.
The year also saw the debut of Kaun Banega Crorepati that instantly brought Amitabh Bachchan back into the limelight. While these two shows single handedly toppled TRP charts and recorded close to 36 points at one time, the entire nation was glued to television to embrace gripping story telling.
