Balaji Telefilms was incorporated on November 10, 1994 and went public on February 28, 2000. The company with offerings such as Kyu Ki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Bade Achhe Lagte Hai, Pavitra Rishta, Naagin soon became one of the leading entertainment houses in the country. The company popularised the concept of ‘Saas-Bahu’ serials and its shows are usually referred to as K-serials as most of the earlier show titles began with the letter K.

After unprecedented success in the small screen, the company forayed into the silver screen with the launch of its subsidiary Balaji Motion Pictures in 2001. But as digital content moved into focus, the company started ALTBalaji as a subscription-based video on demand service in 2017.
