With the advent of the OTT platforms, craze has shifted from movies to series. But even when OTT wasn’t predominant, series and TV shows still had a special place in people’s lives. They’re iconic for a reason. The plot, characters, emotions, and powerful acting picturized in these shows helped audiences from around the globe connect with them on a deeper level. So much, that even today, years after some of these shows were published, these iconic shows are watched by newer generations. But did you know that some of your favorite shows/series earlier had different titles but were later renamed for some or the other creative reasons.
