Zee TV to boost fiction line-up with two ALTBalaji shows, ‘Karle Tu Bhi Mohabbat’
MUMBAI: The cancellation of shootings has led to a situation where Hindi GECs don’t have fresh episodes to air. Some channels have been forced to air re-run of past episodes of current shows or bring back old shows. Hindi GEC Zee TV will be airing two ALTBalaji shows ‘Baarish’ and ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain’ besides bringing back finite series ‘Karle Tu Bhi Mohabbat’. The three shows will air in the 9-11 pm time band every weeknight starting 25th March.
‘Karle Tu Mohabbat’, starring Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar, is about a struggling superstar recovering from his addiction to alcohol, and his new counselor. It will follow the story of how the superstar and the counselor fall in love while at his estranged daughters’ wedding and all the drama that ensues. Starting from 25 th March, Karle Tu Mohabbat will air from 9 pm to 10 pm, only on Zee TV.
‘Baarish’, airing at the 10 pm slot, stars Sharman Joshi and Asha Negi. The show will explore the lives of two strangers from starkly different backgrounds. While Anuj (Sharman) is a Gujarati businessman, who had left studies at a tender age to take over the family business, Gauravi (Asha) is a Maharashtrian girl who feels education is of prime importance and works in Anuj’s company.
At 10:30 pm, ‘Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain’ delves into the love triangle between a chartered accountant Rohit (Ronit Roy), his wife Poonam (Gurdeep Kohli) and an interior designer Ananya (Mona Singh). Initially, everything seems hunky-dory in the family, but when the actual truth comes out, everyone is shocked.
Apart from these three shows, viewers can binge-watch some of the most intriguing episodes of cult favorite shows such as Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya, which have been planned from 7 pm to 8 pm and 8 pm to 9 pm respectively, Monday to Friday. Popular Zee TV classics like Ram Kapoor – Prachi Desai’s ‘Kasam Se’ and Krystle D’Souza, Parag Tyagi and Kishwer Merchant’s ‘Brahmarakshas’ will also be reintroduced on the channel and will air from 2 pm to 3 pm and 5 pm to 6 pm respectively.
Talking about the new shows, Zee TV Business Head Aparna Bhosle revealed, “In times where social distancing is the need of the hour to curb the outbreak of COVID-19 and people are spending more time indoors, the idea is to provide audiences with the most engaging entertainment for the entire family. We have a new 9 to 11 PM band with three new finite series – Karle Tu Mohabbat, Baarish and Kehne Ko Humsafar Hain, that will reassure viewers that we can conquer the biggest challenges with the power of love. Each of the shows has strong TV faces that the masses are closely attached to. We are also reintroducing classics like Kasamh Se and Brahmrakshas as well as facilitating binge-watches of crowd favourites – Kundali Bhagya and Kumkum Bhagya so that the audience has a wide variety of content to view and can enjoy this extended family time together.”
