Rishtey UK has confirmed that it will be replacing popular fiction ‘Thapki’ with comedy series ‘Bhaag Bakool Bhaag’.

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.
