Sahara One Television head - marketing Rajeev Chakrabarti

Speaking exclusively to Indiantelevision.com, Sahara One Television head - marketing Rajeev Chakrabarti says, "The idea behind this marketing campaign was to create intrigue and curiosity around the Kohinoor diamond and resurface it by making it the talking point among people."

The half hour show Kohinoor will be aired at 10 pm from Monday to Thursday on Sahara One. Once the show launches on 5 September, the third phase of the marketing campaign will kick start from 6 September. However, Chakrabarti remained tight lipped on what the third phase of the campaign will encompass.

The channel is pitching the show against Star Plus' Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, Sony's Ye Meri Life Hai and Zee's Time Bomb (Monday), Rabba Ishq Ka Hove (Tuesday), Rooh (Wednesday) and Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Challenge (Thursday).

With television stalwarts like Kahaani... in the 10 pm slot, only time will tell whether Sahara One's efforts around Kohinoor will pay off or not. Till then... the buzz around the show continues.
