TV is shifting its 10 pm show 12/24 Karol Bagh to that time band from 16
Karol Bagh will be Sanjog Se Bani Sangini at Monday- Friday 10 pm slot.

asked for viewers to name the show. The campaign includes and involves the audience
in shaping the show at every stage.
Karol Bagh will fill up the early prime time band, which was airing repeats
of the same show after Zee TVs game show Ghar Ghar Mein got over.
Karol Baghs ratings have fallen over time and the show is not getting

head Sukesh Motwani said, The idea behind shifting Karol Bagh to

7.30 pm property Chhoti Bahu had performed well, and we believe the show
