Mumbai, May 31 (IANS) Producer Ekta Kapoor had planned only 200 episodes of "Bade Acche Lagte Hain", which has completed two years and crossed the 400-episode-mark, says its lead actress Sakshi Tanwar.

The show turned two Thursday and completed 421 episodes.

"When I had signed for the show, Ekta had told me that the story is of 150 episodes, might go on till 200, but it's a limited story. But now we have already crossed the 400-episode-mark and we are completing two years," said the actress on the sets of the show.

"It's a sense of fulfilment, achievement and it's a wonderful feeling," she added.

Even after two yeas, Sakshi comes on the sets with the same excitement that she had on the first day of the shoot.

"If that first day's excitement is there, only then there is a pleasure of working because if you are not looking forward to your work, then it doesn't make sense to come to the set," said Sakshi.

The show is about Shakshi's character Priya Sharma, a 30-plus woman, and middle-aged business tycoon, played by Ram Kapoor who uses his real name in the show as well. The two are brought together by an arranged marriage, but later they fall in love with each other and what happens after that is what the show is all about.
