Kahiin To Hoga aired in 2003 and it was a show about five sisters who are brought up with middle-class values. The eldest sister Kashish, falls for a rich industrialist named Sujal, unaware that he will be responsible for ruining her life. Apart from the intriguing and convoluted story what caught the attention of viewers were actors Rajeev Khandelwal and Shabir Ahluwalia.
