Being the no 1 rated Hindi GEC show with 3000 episodes in 10 years and 1500 hours of content, that is more than what any production house has been able to achieve, producer Rajan Shahi has created history with Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. He has been part of the industry for the last 26 years and has grown with each passing year.
Shahi attributes his success to the blessing of his parents and the support of his family. “My mother Deepa Shahi’s encouragement and support are unparalleled in my journey and my daughter Ishika is my motivation. She is pursuing business and media studies and has an inclination towards the entertainment industry. It’s up to her to pursue acting, direction or production. Recently, I watched a short film, directed by her and it gave me a sense of déjà vu. It reminded me of the time when I had shown a short film to my grandfather. He had appreciated it and had said that I will go ahead in this profession. When she showed me the short film, I had the same feelings,” he says.
