HSM R market buoyed by Kaala Teeka in the former and Kaala Teeka and Jamai Raja in the latter.

Zee Anmol was followed by Zeel?s flagship Hindi GEC Zee TV. Zee TV was ranked second during primetime in the Hindi GEC HSM (U+R) and the Hindi GEC (U) markets with the help of three programmes ? Kumkum Bhagya, Kundali Bhagya and Zee TV?s homegrown reality musical show Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Little Champs.
