Everyone craving about the monotony in the Indian Television scene got a shock when Star Plus announced its spin-off of Ishqbaaz in end of January. The show, Dil Bole Oberoi was supposed to focus on the love stories of the two brothers, Rudra (Leenesh Mattoo) and Omkara (Kunal Jaisingh). The show got on air and the TRPs were amazing. In the first week, Dil Bole Oberoi occupied the 14th place in the TRP charts. The cast and crew were ecstatic. However, the spin-off did not last very long and the viewers got what they wanted - an hour long merged episode with Ishqbaaz, complete with all the bromance and romance. However, within a few days of DBO launch, Balaji Telefilms announced the spin-off of Kumkum Bhagya. The show has been a hit-maker on the TRP charts since three years and had the perfect base to start a spin-off. On the contrary, Ishqbaaz was less than a year old when the spin-off was declared.
Kumkum Bhagya's spin-off Kundali Bhagya had a thunderous opening on the TRP charts. It has acquired the fourth place with a ranking of 2.3, which is fabulous. The major reason was its success in both the rural and urban markets. Kundali Bhagya tells the tale of Pragya's (Sriti Jha) sisters Preeta and Srishti. It is also the love story of the girls with the Luthra brothers. The makers have roped in two hot hunks, Dheeraj Dhoopar and Manit Joura as the male leads. In fact, Dheeraj was the face of Sasural Simar Ka and has a good following in the interiors. Another reason behind the success of the show is that people are bored of the repetitive tracks being shown on Kumkum Bhagya. In fact, report has surfaced that a group of fans have filed a complaint against the show in National Consumer Court. While Ishqbaaz has a loyal set of fans, it is a far more urban show than compared to anything else being shown on TV, at present.
Kundali Bhagya is a girl-oriented story, so the viewership is automatically larger. In the first week, it gave a beating to Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, which is a strong favourite. If the show clicks in the interiors, it will surely be a long-time success. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates...
