It revolved around the trials and tribulations of four interns as they balanced their personal and professional life. The popularity of the series got the makers to launch a sequel Dill Mill Gayye in 2007. The show made stars out of actors Karan Singh Grover, Drashti Dhami, Karan Wahi and Jennifer Winget.
