Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai (lit. What Is This Relationship Called?) is a Hindi-language television drama. It premiered on January 12, 2009 on StarPlus. The show focuses on the daily life of an Udaipur-based Rajasthani family. It is produced by Rajan Shahi's Director's Kut Productions, and is the third-longest-running Indian television series based on episode count.[citation needed] The show's lead characters are Naira (Shivangi Joshi) and Kartik (Mohsin Khan). The series initially focused on Naira's parents Akshara (Hina Khan) and Naitik (Karan Mehra).

Plot

A young couple, Akshara and Naitik Singhania, live in a Marwari joint family in Udaipur. They adjust as a married couple, as parents of young children, and as their extended families mature.

Naitik falls into a coma in an accident; four years later he returns to the family and struggles to gain acceptance from his five-year-old son, Naksh. Naitik's mother dies and his father marries a divorcee with two children. When her husband dies, Naitik's aunt blames Akshara and kicks her out of the house; Naitik, Akshara, Naksh and newborn Naira leave their extended family.

The family live in Cape Town for several years. An adult Naksh returns to Udaipur and counsels his great aunt, who is convinced to forgive Akshara and the family returns. Naksh falls in love with Tara and wedding plans are made, but she breaks up with him minutes before the ceremony.

Teenaged Naira runs away from Akshara and lives in Rishikesh for a time. When she returns a love triangle forms between Naira, her cousin Gayu, and Naitik's employee Kartik. Naira considers setting aside her feelings so Gayu can be happy, but after a time Naira and Kartik confess their love for each other. Akshara dies in a car accident and a drunk Kartik is blamed, dividing the families, but Naira proves his innocence and her family accepts him.

Naira and Kartik are married, and later learn that Kartik's cousin was responsible for her mother's death. The couple later work together to help his sister gain a divorce from her abusive husband. Under pressure from the family, Naksh agrees to marry his sister-in-law.

Parallel story arcs

Parallel with Akshara and Naitik's stories, the stories of their respective siblings also form significant story arcs in the series. Past plots have been built around the lives of Naitik's sisters Nandini and Rashmi. The series has also focused on Naitik's step-siblings. The series also paralleled the story of Akshara-Naitik with that of Varsha-Shaurya, Akshara's best friend and older brother, respectively.

After several leaps, Naira and Kartik became the leads of the show. Parallel with Kartik and Naira's stories, the series also focuses on the story of their siblings: Naksh, Gayu, Keerti and Shubham.
