3. Uttaran – 2008
The daily soap which began in 2008 is one of the longest running shows on television after Kumkum. Kumkum, which ran for a grand total of 7 years, with no cast change comes almost as close to being as popular as Uttaran. The show follows the story of two friends Ichcha and Tapasya and how their lives changed after marriage. Today, the show has taken generation leaps, keeping the spirit of the show alive.
