@BhaavnaArora With daily soaps becoming senseless with each passing day, this will definitely amount to mental torture. God save the viewers if this #KabhiKushiKabhiGham nightmare turns reality. https://t.co/XLEWAsbEDR

This question makes sense, what do you think?
Will the TV adaptation of Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham be a hit or a flop?

On a side note, Ekta is also planning to launch an Indian version of Game of Thrones. As per a source, “Though not an official adaption, the project will have the feel and look of the medieval drama.” Another source claimed, “It will have a heavy dose of sex in it.”
