Creativity has many names. Possibly a recent creation in the entertainment industry in yet another trend. The tinsel town have witnessed a gradual development of a strong relationship between the Bollywood and the Television Daily soaps.
From ongoing TV soaps like “Kuch Toh Log Kahenge" and “Bade Acche Lagte Hain" to the forthcoming “Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuuch Kaha" and “Kya Hua Tera Vaada", what common do we find in these that is directly connected to Bollywood? It is quite clear that the titles are all inspired by old hindi film songs.
“Kuch Toh Log Kahenge", a hit song picturised on Sharmila Tagore and Rajesh Khanna in “Amar Prem", is now the love story between Mohnish Behl and Kritika Kamra. The title of Ekta Kapoor"s “Bade Acche Lagte Hain" is picked up from the song in the 1976 movie “Balika Badhu", about the arranged marriage of two teenagers, played by Sachin Pilgaonker and Rajni Sharma.
“Dekha Ek Khwaab", has been taken from the evergreen song “Dekha ek khwaab toh yeh silsilay hue" picturised on Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha in the 1981 film “Silsila". The show is a fairytale story of a young girl who lives in a chawl but is actually a princess.
“Sapno Se Bhare Naina" is from Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy"s composition “Sapnon se bhare naina, na neend hai na chaina" from the soundtrack of “Luck By Chance".
“Iss Pyaar ko Main Kya Naam Doon" is another show that takes its title from a song from Tusshar Kapoor-Kareena Kapoor-starrer “Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai".
