Ekta Kapoor gave plastic surgeries a new face (saw what I did there?) and made it so popular that it became a regular for all other TV show makers. It also meant that you can’t mess with Ekta Kapoor or she’d replace you in the show after your character meets with a terrible accident. As absurd as it may sound, plastic surgeries have known to increase the TRPs ever since Ms. Kapoor introduced them in her shows in the 2000’s like Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Kasamh Se and so on. It was a trend back then with TV serials and every person following these TV serials was hooked to the television.

Just when you thought that plastic surgery is out of fashion, Kapoor brings it back with her show, Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki. The makers of this show observed a major dip in the TRPs after Kratika Sengar quit the show as Tanu. Shivani Tomar, who played Tanu’s reincarnation – Tanuja, and Rishi (Ssharad Malhotra) couldn’t create the kind of magic that the earlier couple did. This led the makers to convince Kratika Sengar to return to the show. And while there were talks about Kratika returning for some flashback scenes but decided to get her on board full time. And after pondering over how to get her back in the show for a long time, the makers decided to go about the good ol’ plastic surgery plot. Tanuja injures herself in an attempt to save Rishi, and now here she is going under the knife and BAM! Kratika is back in the show!
