Yashraj's first daily soap has male protagonists and sounds suspiciously similar to Yash Chopra's film Trishul.

Born on 15th of August, Aditya Merchant and Kabir Khan mark the return of male protagonists on Indian Television in Kismat – an epic saga. Produced by YRF Television and presented by Sony Entertainment Television, Kismat is a story of enmity between two powerful characters, spanning over 60 years in the post independence era. Continuing the tradition of larger than life stories and bringing back the romance of grand storytelling, the show is shot with impeccable Yashraj standards and redefines the benchmarks of fiction shows of tomorrow.
The show revolves around the two central characters - Aditya Merchant and Kabir Khan. Aditya Merchant is the heir to a rich industrialist family born with a silver spoon. He has access to all the privileges and was taught early in life that winning is all that matters, at any cost, and being a true Merchant, Aditya has made winning his habit in everything he does. While Kabir Khan, though born to Muslim parents is adopted by a Hindu family, is fated for a life full of struggles. Kabir has to face adversities early in life which mould him to become an aggressive go getter who stops at nothing and nobody. Kabir's sole agenda is to get rich and be powerful. But KISMAT rules that both Aditya and Kabir's paths must cross & change their lives forever.

The plot sounds suspiciously similar to Yash Chopra's 1975 superhit film Trishul where Shashi Kapoor played the rich industrialist character and Amitabh Bachchan played the less-privileged opponent. However the production house has made no such claim.

Ravina Kohli, Vice President and Creative Head of YRF Television said, "Kismat is an epic set across a period of 60 years beginning at the stroke of the midnight hour when India got her independence. It is a story of ambition, greed, friendship, betrayal, loyalty, family values, love, romance and a lot more. We are venturing into Daily soap territory for the first time with the strong backing of our partners Sony Entertainment Television and we hope Kismat will resonate with a wide audience cutting across age and gender because of its universal appeal."

Speaking about the launch, Mr. Ajit Thakur, EVP and Business Head of Sony Entertainment Television commented "Kismat, the second show from YRF after Khotey Sikkey this year, is a powerful emotional epic saga set on a grand scale; two powerful characters with their own points of view juxtaposed against each other will bring out all the elements of drama and compelling storytelling, just the qualities YRF is known for."
