Mumbai: Almost a decade ago, the popular family drama Sasural Simar Ka made its way into the viewers’ hearts as it showcased the heartwarming story of Simar and her family. At the heart of the show, there were many endearing characters that became household names including Simar and Mataji who are still revered as iconic. After creating history on television and keeping the audience entertained for 7 long years, COLORS’ milestone show Sasural Simar Ka is set to return with the second season. In an all-new avatar, the show will chronicle the life of new (Choti) Simar (played by Radhika Muthukumar), who aspires to become a singer but her life takes an unexpected turn when she crosses path with Badi Simar (played by Dipika Kakar) and Geetanjali Devi (played by Jayati Bhatia).
Produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, Sasural Simar Ka 2 will premiere on 26th April 2021 and air every Monday to Saturday at 6.30 pm COLORS.
A simple yet resilient girl, Choti Simar is the youngest of the siblings who grew up in the shadow of her sisters. Much like Badi Simar, she is rooted in her values and principles, but she is a present-day girl, ambitious, and dreams of making her mark in the field of music. On the other hand, Geetanjali Devi belongs to the old school of thought and is seeking an unambitious girl for her grandson Aarav (played by Avinash Mukherjee) who is willing to put her family above her dreams. She gives the responsibility to Badi Simar to scout for a suitable match and her quest leads her to Choti Simar who is ideal yet different from Geetanjali Devi’s expectations. As their lives get interwoven and their ideologies clash, thus begins Choti Simar’s journey, of discovering a new life and relationships.
Speaking about the show, Nina Elavia Jaipuria, Head, Hindi Mass Entertainment and Kids TV Network, Viacom18, “At COLORS, we truly believe that stories have the power to bring comfort, even more so in these tough times.

We are very happy to bring back the second season of our iconic show Sasural Simar Ka with a new storyline, old and new characters, and also strengthen the early prime time 6.30 pm slot.”
Speaking about the return of the show, Manisha Sharma, Chief Content Officer, Viacom18 said, “Sasural Simar Ka has been one of our marquee shows that tasted immense success and became an audience favorite. We are very excited to return with the second season and take the legacy of the show forward with the story of the new Simar. As the story evolves, we will see the new Simar, who resonates with old Simar’s ethos, fighting against odds, tackling different ideologies, and setting out on a new journey. We are extremely happy to have Dipika Kakar and Jayati Bhatia back on the show who in every true sense contributed to the show’s success. As we renew our partnership with Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, we look forward to creating history once again.”
Producer Rashmi Sharma said, “We began the journey of Sasural Simar Ka a decade ago and every time its mere mention leaves us nostalgic. The memories and success of the show are still etched in our minds and I am delighted to bring back the show that is so close to my heart. In the new season, we will introduce the audience to the new Simar played by Radhika Muthukumar and showcase her journey. It is so great to reunite with Dipika Kakar and Jayati Bhatia who have become synonymous with the show and we are having a wonderful time shooting in Agra. I hope that like Season 1, we are able to rewrite the success and win audience love.”
