An Unusual Tale Full story on star life is an Indian television soap opera produced by Ekta Kapoor under her banner Balaji Telefilms. The series was broadcasted on Life OK and streamed online after airing on television on Hotstar.
The show was the television debut of Bollywood actress Sonali Bendre in the fiction genre title of the show Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh is inspired by the title song of the 1960 Bollywood film Dil Apna Aur Preet Parai, originally sung by Lata Mangeshkar.
Shobha (Sonali Bendre) is a middle-aged housewife married to a politician, Samarth (Harsh Chhaya). The couple has two little children and seemingly happy marriage until Shobha discovers that her husband is having an affair, and is involved in corruption through a news broadcast. Left all devastated, she doesn’t know what to expect from life after it became the new gossip of the nation, but for the sake of her children and her husband’s innocent family, she decides to pursue a career.
Her new journey to be independent goes through major ups and downs, whilst she tries to figure out her seemingly arrogant, yet mysterious boss, Vikram Ahuja(Apurva Agnihotri). He inspires her to make an identity for herself and not rely on the one her husband has left her with. As she gets to know the man Vikram is, they form an unnamed, yet a divine bond. As her kids fall in love with the man too, their relationship becomes so strong that it’s pure.
Ajeeb Dastaan Hai Yeh is a rom-com that revolves around the lives of Vikram and Shobha, and their families—how they overcome their pasts for a better future.
Initially, the show was seen as a fresh take on the saas-bahu trope in Indian television serials. Explaining why the show was taken off the air, the show’s co-creator Ekta Kapoor said that audiences were not ready for progressive shows that showed a married woman choosing to move on even after her husband mistreats her.
In another interview in 2017, Kapoor said that the show was poorly received as the idea of a woman in a bad marriage moving out and leaving her husband did not match the generally accepted thought process of a family despite the show’s depiction of reality.
