Star Jalsha strengthens non-fiction offering with 3 new shows

A Star India spokesperson said, “It has been our constant endeavour to provide wholesome and differentiated entertainment for the entire family. We were always dominating the fiction space and now with the new non-fiction shows we have just made our offering even more varied and entertaining. The results are encouraging to say the least.”


“The successful non-fiction shows along with the extended fiction have made Jalsha a new destination for viewers on Sundays. Our recent success in non-fiction has made us even more committed to it and we have decided to come up with an array of new non-fictions that I am sure will go on to create new benchmarks in BGE,” the spokesperson added.
