Kyunki saas bhi kabhi bahu thi… ruled the TRP charts for 8 years, raking in the bucks for producer Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms and Star TV.

Kyunki… is one of the biggest show of my life,” says Ekta Kapoor.

In soap-saga style Ekta Kapoor moved court but with the court refusing to stay the termination, Tulsi did have to make an exit and Balaji telefilms is reportedly in talk with a rival channel to keep the show alive.

And now Its former super-cop Kiran Bedi's Aap Ki Kacheri that will replace Kyunki… on Star Plus bringing together reality TV and social issues. But will Kiran Bedi step smoothly into Tulsi's shoes is something one need’s to keep an eye on.
