Colors lines up new shows; ‘Krishnadasi’ to replace ‘Bigg Boss 9’ on weekdays

MUMBAI: Colors is all set to ring in the new year with a bunch of new shows in the reality as well as fiction space. And kick-starting the new show launches will be the fiction series Krishnadasi, which will be replacing Bigg Boss 9 on weekdays from 25 January as the popular reality show reaches its finale later this month. 

Krishnadasi will be a one hour show and will  be aired in the 10.30 pm - 11.30 pm time slot. 

Produced by South Indian producer Kutty Padmini and Optimystix Productions, Krishnadasi will revolve around the life of a young girl Aaradhya. Krishnadasi is the tale of unconditional love of a woman for Lord Krishna. Though the concept is not necessarily new to the audience with the tale of Meera that was aired on NDTV Imagine in 2009, it will be interesting to watch how Colors’ offering is different. 

What's more, with Arjun Kapoor as the host of the show, Colors will be back with season seven of Khatron Ke Khiladi - Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda. A source close to the development informed that the show is likely to be aired from 30 January as it will replace Bigg Boss 9 on weekends (Saturday and Sunday) at 9 pm.

The promo of the show is currently on air. As was earlier reported by this website, the 20-episode season of Khatron Ke Khiladi - Kabhi Peeda, Kabhi Keeda, produced by Endemol Shine India has been shot extensively in Argentina.

Another show in the pipeline is the second season of Mission Sapne. To make someone’s dream come true, Bollywood stars will spend one day as a common man. The show is produced by Sobo Films and will be aired at 11 am every Sunday from 17 January.

In week 51 of Broadcast Audience Research Council (BARC) India ratings, Colors propelled to the number position in the Hindi general entertainment channels’ (GECs) genre thanks to the Bigg Boss 9 power packed weekend episode featuring Shah Rukh Khan along with the show’s host Salman Khan.

It will be interesting to see how the fresh line-up of new shows affects Colors’ ratings in the near future.
