UTV had reduced its presence on the pubcaster for a while after
producing the long running blockbuster Shanti on DD for the
afternoon band in 1994.
The production house shifted its focus to satellite channels thereafter,
particularly to Star Plus, on which it has an increasing presence
by way of afternoon soaps Shagun and Bhabhi, kids'
show Shaka Laka Boom Boom and prime time shows Khichdi
and Kehta Hai Dil.
Shaka Laka..., which incidentally had been handed over to
the Goldie Behl-Shrishti Arya promoted Rose Movies for production
of a few episodes, has now been handed back to UTV, says Screwvala.
