Speaking on the occasion, Rajan said, “It’s a landmark day not just for Star Plus and ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ (YRKKH) team or DKP but also for entire GECs, because, on this day, January 12, not only have we completed 12 years but also 3300 episodes, which is the maximum number of episodes for any daily soap. It feels good because it has been a fruitful journey. I feel a good team makes a good show and the positivity and enthusiasm of the team are the same as it was on day one. I want to thank everyone who has been part of the show because as a producer I feel every member of the unit made it their mission to take the show forward. I think the ‘Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’ represents the best team in the industry. I must thank Star Plus for being a great collaborator and always believing in the show. I also want to thank the viewers who have always stood by the show. At this juncture, after the 3300 episodes, we are going towards a turning point in the show which the audience will get to know very soon. So it feels good and I want to humbly thank everyone who has been associated with the show.”
