ZEE TV will be extending its current weekday 19:00 – 20:00 offerings to Saturdays from next week.
The two shows ‘Bandhan’ at 19:00 and new show ‘Hello Pratibha’ at 19:30 (replacing Sapne Suhane) will air Monday to Saturday. Incidentally, ‘Hello Pratibha’ launches on Tuesday 26th January 2014 (Wednesday 27th January in UK) and revolves around Pratibha, a mother of two grown-up children. Family has been her sole priority as she has spent 16 years of her life devoted to her husband, kids and in-laws. Before her marriage, Pratibha was a girl filled with hope, ambition and talents of her own and is today a middle-aged housewife faced with an identity crisis. Her struggle is for things as basic as identity and existence as she longs to be acknowledged as a person.
‘Maharakshak Aryan’, which currently airs at 19:00 will be taking a season break and is expected to return in March. ZEE TV programming head Namit Sharma explained to Television Post, ���Before we launch the next show in the Maharakshak series, we had the opportunity to extend this show and allow greater sampling. Aryan moves to a different time slot for a week and the next one starts 4���5 weeks later. So we just created a little space. There is a lot of variety we are planning for the channel.�
