Sony SAB, one of the leading Hindi General Entertainment Channels in India, launched the new season for the show titled ‘Baalveer Returns’ featuring Dev Joshi, Pavitra Punia and Sharmilee Raaj amongst others in September which led to this phenomenal spike in search activity on Google.

Owing to the demand and the interest from the fans for a new season Sony SAB decided to bring back the magic of Baalveer to the TV screens in a grand new avatar this year.
