MUMBAI: For probably the first time on Indian television, Star Plus is marrying two prime time rival shows in a programming coup of sorts
Prerna (Shweta Tiwari) and Anurag (Cezanne Khan) in Kasautii Zindagi Kay
On 27 October, the week when both Kasautii Zindagi Kay and Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand turn two years old, Star Plus has decided to try a novel tack by bringing both serials together in a special one and half hour episode. The channel seems to have landed a programming coup of sorts by getting Kasauti producer Balaji Telefilms and Des Mein producer AK Films pool their talents for this special one off, although the title of this particular episode is yet to be decided, say channel officials. Will it be Kasautii Mein Niklla Hoga Chand
Pammi (Sangeeta Ghosh) in Des Mein Niklla Hoga Chand
As per the proposed show outline, to be aired from 8:30 to 10:00 pm, Anurag Basu's sister Tapur fromKasautii will tie the knot with Pammi's cousin Bubbles Singh from Des Mein on the special episode, bringing the Basu and Singh families together. This also throws up interesting possibilities about the future course the two shows could take, but the channel is not saying more as of now, except to maintain that this is possibly the first time such an innovative twist is being introduced on any show on Indian television.
