Background and productionEdit


Initially, Devoleena Bhattacharjee was selected to play Nandini but then the role went to Drashti Dhami. Similarly, Aham Sharma was selected to play Rajdeep but Abhinav Shukla was selected.[28][29]

Writing and developmentEdit

The serial was named 'Bawre Nain' but the makers changed the title to 'Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka'.[4]

Drashti Dhami stated that the serial is not about extra marital affairs but it focus on the friendship between two friends and two couples and how circumstances takes place in their lives.[8][30][29][5]

Before the launch of the series, Manisha Sharma, programming head of Colors, stated that:

With this show, we are exploring an evolved and modern love story. The twist and turns every relationship goes through often complicates situations making the person break boundaries. This complicated yet interesting space will keep everyone intrigued and engaged, with viewers contemplating the difference between what feels right and what seems wrong.[1][31]


Critical receptionEdit

Shweta Ksheri of India Today wrote, "Drashti Dhami nails it as the tormented wife; a good comeback for the actress."[32] Soumyata Chauhan of DNA India wrote: "Shakti-Aditi's sizzling romance perfectly off-sets Drashti Dhami's abusive marriage."[33] Shruti Shiksha of NDTV wrote: "The show is a good take on new-age friendship, love and marriage".[34] The Times of India stated, "Silsila Badalte Rishton Ka has managed to grab the attention of the viewers for its unique storyline and bold content".[35]


In the beginning, the makers and Drashti Dhami told that the series is not about extra marital affairs but how circumstances takes place in couples lives[5] and channel programming head of Colors stated that the serial is about exploring an evolved and modern love story.[1][31]

In September 2018, some audiences were not happy about the storyline and blames the makers and main cast for showing extra marital affairs content on national television.[35]

They started to troll on the main cast of the series on social networking sites.[35][36] They trolled Drashti Dhami and Shakti Arora for playing and choosing the character of Nandini and Kunal. Shakti Arora gave the indirectly replied to troller by uploading the image of him and named as:

If nobody hates you, you are doing something boring.[35]

Then someone replied to Shakti Arora's post by saying:

Putting up such captions would not make your character [Kunal] any better.. I am extremely disappointed by your character and honestly, I hate you and drashti for being so ridiculous. I mean how could someone write this kind of a storyline. Disgusting! You are surely gonna break relationships and also give them a stupid reason to do that.. pathetic serial.[35]

In returns to the troller comment, Shakti Arora also gave quickly replied by saying:

Then stop watching the show [and] do something constructive in life.. god bless...[35]

When trollers trolled Drashti Dhami, Aditi Sharma came out in support of Drashti Dhami by saying:

I have to say the role [Drashti Dhami choose] as Nandini requires a lot of courage. Only a true artist [and] a strong person can do that. I love her for the loving caring helping person she is. I request everyone that instead of getting personal [why] don't we appreciate [and] encourage her boldness.[36]
