With ‘Gulaal’ not performing as well as initially expected, Star Plus is planning to bring back its ratings hit show ‘Bidaai’ in the weekday 21:00 slot, according to reports.
Apparently, the channel is hoping to pave way for the second season of the show after the ‘Indian Premier League’ gets over. TellyBuzz reports that unlike the first season which revolved around the close bonding between two sisters, ‘Bidaai 2’ will have the story of two sisters, who have a bitter feeling towards each other.
With Sara Khan now a part of ZEE TV’s show ‘Ram Milaye Jodi’ and Parul Chauhan a regular on Colors’ ‘Pratha’, it is not known who will be cast in ‘Bidaai 2’. Rumour has it that the new series will move on to the rocky relationship of daughters Khushi and Tamanna (of Sadhana and Ragini respectively).
Insiders have indicated that Star Plus is unhappy with the performance of ‘Gulaal’, which replaced ‘Bidaai’ late last year. The show hasn’t been able to reach the same ratings high as ‘Bidaai’.
Similarly, ZEE TV announced plans to relaunch ‘Chhoti Bahu’ to spruce up its primetime schedule.
