The daytime soap is all about the couple's love, relationships with children and the extended family they live with.

The particular underwater sequence has Karan Mehra searching for his on-screen wife Akshara (Hina Khan). He dives into a lake to search and rescue his wife, the love of his reel life.

Karan admits it was a memorable experience shooting the sequence. “In spite of facing a few hurdles like the water being dirty and its temperature fluctuating, we did manage to get the shots we wanted. It is rare to have underwater shoots for a daily soap in India and also, it is the first time that we have shot underwater in the 7 years long journey of YRKKH so I was really looking forward to shoot this sequence.”

The episode is already on air and the trailer of the episode had generated quite a stir. Needless to say, the fans have loved the episode and have flooded him with compliments on social media.
