Show Summary

The story begins with Preeta (played by Shraddha Arya) and Shristi (Anjum Fakih) struggling to board a Mumbai-bound train from Nashik station. The sisters are quite opposite of each other in personality, While  Preeta is the quiet and reserved kind, Shrishti is outspoken and feisty.

A reason why Shrishti is all excited to explore the city life whereas Preeta who is also a physiotherapist, is contemplative and emotional about leaving her city.


We will be treated to their back-story through flashbacks and dialogues even as we will see them settle into their new home with Sarla and start their lives afresh. Eventually they cross path with the two Luthra  brothers – Rishabh (Manit Joura) and Karan (Dheeraj Dhoopar) who are also friends of Abhi.


Just as Preeta and Shruti personality differs, Rishabh and Karan are also poles apart. While Karan is a popular cricketer, arrogant and brash, Rishabh a successful artiste manager,  calm and gentle.


The show promises an exciting story line unlike the one we’ve been treated to in the past, added to the expected romance and drama coming up in the series, Karan will share a love-hate relationship with Preeta while his brother Rishabh wil develop a liking towards her.

This is inclusive of a love triangle that will sure add extra spice to the series. Also character differences and polarity will add depth to the series.

Series review:

From all fillers, it is evident that This is fate have more creative content to offer than the Abhi and Pragya over stretched story. Even though the story line looks similar with the whole family conflict, rich man – poor girl love troubles, devious brides and antagonistic relatives, we can expect to get a different angle to it… I think.

Because This is fate’s four main characters have  different traits, profession and aspirations and so we can hope to expect less of kidnaps, resurrections, scheming and ungrateful men who throw out their sacrificial wives over little misunderstanding

We also hope the show keep it simple and doesn’t complicate its storyline by introducing characters who are always scheming and plotting like Aliyah and Tanu from Twist of fate. But then again, this is Zee World, such characters are never far from the picture right? Yet we want to believeb the Show runner Ekta Kapoor words that:

“…The writing for this show is extremely strong in terms of characterisation and the engaging screenplay should leave audiences hooked at the end of every episode.” –  credit.
