Bhagya Vidhata to be aired in the first week of AprilMarch 13th, 2009 - 8:08 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
With the new Colours show, Bhagya Vidhata coming in the first week of April in the prime time band there is intense speculation as to which existing show will be replaced by this saga of forced marriage UP, Bihar style. This Shreya creations show will focus of plight of a girl who’s parents use gun power to find a good groom for their daughter .
Producer Sheel Kumar says that both the lead caste are new. The lead girl Richa Soni has done some regional stuff, but this is her debut in satellite Tv. The name of the guy is yet to be finalized, he added. Kumar also refused to speculate on the time slot saying, “that is the prerogative of the channel. I believe that a good product always bring in ratings, there is nothing any more as a early evening or late night slotting . Did Mamta not rock the 7 pm scene. And today its quite tough to survive at the 9.30 p m slot, which is supposed to be the numero uno time slot ”
Our source says that the channel may be toying with the idea of replacing Bandhan Saat Janmon Ka with Bhagya, which currently air’s at 7.30 pm. However lead actor, Vishal Gandhi says that the show have been given a extension up to July. But he does acknowledge that he has heard such talk himself, “But I consider them to be just rumours,” he says. Gungun Uprari who essay the lead character of Jhanvi while accepting that a rating of 2 was not too good says, “I will be surprised if the change does happen for I have no clue.” She also was not happy with the recent change in track where her character was first shown to be dead then brought back.
Our Khabru says that the other show which might be taken be off could be Rahe Tera Aashirwaad, which comes at 7. But Producer, Kinnari Mehta denies any such knowledge, till sometime we were number 1 at this slot, she questions .
On why these 2 early evening shows are being discussed as possible replacements for Bhagya , the source explains ” Other existing shows like Jai Shri Krishna’, Ballika Badhu, Uttaran and Jeevan Saathi are bringing in good numbers, so the channel will not tinker with them,” the source reasons. The source further added that there is a higher possibility of Bandhan going then Rahe.
But this suspense will continue until and unless the channel comes out with a clear cut time slot declaration of Bhagya Vidhata. We tried to contact Colours, but were unable to get a response from them.
