Hasratein is an Indian television soap opera that was telecast on Zee TV in the mid 1990s. It is the story of Savi, a woman who leaves her husband and maintains an extra-marital relationship with another married man, with both their spouses being aware of the situation. Hasratein was one of the most popular television shows of the 1990s. According to Shubhra Gupta, film and television critic, the popularity of the serial "had made it a catalyst for the discussion of issues of marital discord, in spite of the embarrassment the serial generated for many people." Seema Kapoor played the character of Savi for the first 99 episodes. She was then replaced by Shefali Chhaya, whose her work earned her the Zee Woman of the Year award in 1997.
