MUMBAI: Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC) Star Plus is all set to add a fresh breath of air to its programming with the launch of two new shows namely Silsilla Pyaar Ka and Swadhinta in the new year. These shows will replace two of the channels' existing shows.

Balaji Telefilms’ show Kuch Toh Hai Tere Mere Darmiyaan, which was launched on 28 September, will be going off air in January. The show airs at 8:30 pm from Monday to Saturday.

A source close to the development informs Indiantelevision.com, “The show failed to generate sustainable ratings, and therefore it’s going off air. It might be replaced by Silsila Pyaar Ka produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms, which is slated to launch in first week of January.”

The promos of the show have already been released. Silsilla Pyaar Ka revolves around a possessive mother, her son and the girl in his life.

On the other hand, the Hindi adaptation of Warner Bros' Everybody Loves Raymond - Sumit Sambhal Lega is also in its final phase and is slated to go off air in the last week of January. Produced by DJ’s Creative Unit, the show was launched on 31 August and airs at 10 pm from Monday to Saturday.

Another source added, “The show might get replaced by Farhaan Salaruddin headed Fortune Production’s upcoming show Swadhinta. Based on courtroom drama, the show will focus on the bureaucracy in our nation. The show is slated to launch on 1 February.”

Additionally, Star Plus’ Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi hosted by superstar Amitabh Bachchan will soon reach its final phase. Launched on 18 October, Aaj Ki Raat Hai Zindagi airs on Sunday at 8 pm. The last episode of the show is slated to air in the second week of January.
