NEW DELHI: Aiming to dial up the excitement for 2021 after a tumultuous year, ABP News has curated a special programming line-up on new year's eve. After its recent rebranding, the channel is taking another step forward to keep viewers engaged with a host of interesting programmes marking the end of 2020. 

The channel will be reflecting on the best and memorable moments of 2020 and will also give a sneak peek into how 2021 is going to be. ABP News, which has otherwise tried to remain away from astrology-based shows on it for the past few years, will host a special show called 2021 ka Rashiphal. It will be hosted by renowned astrologer Pawan Sinha. Another special show called Bade logon ke liye kaisa rahega saal 2021 will have different astrologers and numerologists predicting how the year 2021 will turn out to be for 10 big personalities of the country.

Bringing cheer to viewers whilst bidding adieu, the diverse line-up will include a Comedy Special show which will have the ‘Best of Comedy by Kapil Sharma’ and a discussion with other renowned guests; Kavi Sammelan - another unique show, will mark the presence of Kumar Vishwas and other renowned poets.

Other interesting shows like Corona Ki Zubaani 2020 Ki Kahani will talk about the Covid2019 pandemic and its impact; 100 Khabrein 100 Reporters will feature 100 reporters of ABP Network narrating different stories of the year 2020; Jai Jawaan Jai Kisaan will be a new year special show on the soldiers and farmers of the country, highlighting their contribution and service to the nation. 

2020 aur Modi will dissect the journey of PM Narendra Modi and how he navigated the past year; 10 Badi Tasveerien  - a show which will talk about the different aspects of 2020 through 10 big stories; Top Viral – a special programme featuring viral stories of 2020; and Vyakti Vishes will nominate the personality of the year through a five-day viewer engagement poll on social media.
