As revealed on BizAsiaLive.com , ‘Thapki’ ends next week on Rishtey UK, leaving the 20:00 slot vacant. The broadcaster’s experiment will see a comedy based show take centrestage in the channel’s programme line-up for the first time. ‘Bhaag Bakool Bhaag’ currently sits in the weekday 22:00 slot and has not fared well. It is hoping the new slot will work better.
Comedy shows in primetime slots have become a trend after the success on Sony SAB TV and moreover ‘Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain’ on &TV.
‘Bhaag Bakool Bhaag’ will take the 20:00 slot from Monday 17th July.
