Kundali is an Indian-produced television soap opera that originally aired on Metro Gold under DD Metro in 2002. After the channel closed, the series was taken over by STAR Plus, and aired from the beginning. Due to its popularity among audiences, the series is currently re-airing on TV Asia channel in USA, every Friday at 8pm EST.
The story centers on two sisters, Aarti and Vidhi, whose lives are governed by their parents' decision to get them married only to men having horoscopes that perfectly match theirs. Aarti (Nivedita Bhattacharya) is the mature and responsible elder sister while Vidhi (Prachi Shah) is the impulsive, slightly childish but basically loving younger one. As luck would have it, the sisters find suitable matches in Viraj (Anupam Bhattacharya) and Abhishek (Yash Tonk), two brothers who are devoted to each other. But there is a twist: because of their parents' insistence on matching horoscopes, Aarti, the elder sister, is married to Abhishek, the younger brother; while the younger sister Vidhi gets married to the elder brother Viraj. This leads to a few awkward situations, but the couples are basically quite happy. However, a series of trying circumstances overcomes the lives of the four, threatening to tear their most valuable relationships apart. How they overcome these challenges, and how their mutual love prevails in the end, forms the story of Kundali.
