COLORS Festival Bonanza promises big stars and big shows
Staying true to its promise of providing the viewers with unparalleled content, COLORS is ready with an explosive line-up of new shows this festive season. The new crop of shows boasts of presenting the viewers a motley of emotions to resonate with whilst amping up the entertainment quotient manifold. Starting with Devanshi launching on 3rd October 2016, COLORS will make way for programmes like Nagin Season 2, Bigg Boss 10, Dil Se…Dil Tak and Shani, that will change the entertainment landscape.
Commenting on the new line-up, Raj Nayak, CEO – COLORS said, “Each of these concepts have been handpicked by our creative teams keeping in mind newness, intrigue and variety. Be it a show that dismisses blind faith like Devanshi, the second edition of our super-hit mystical thriller Nagin, an entertainment show on human behaviour like Bigg Boss, a love story with a unique twist like Dil Se…Dil Tak or a historical-mytho series like Shani, it’s all happening on COLORS. We have associated with the choicest storytellers and production teams to curate compelling shows in keeping with the channel’s core DNA whilst catering to every member of a family.”
Kicking off the celebrations in style, COLORS will first launch Devanshi on 3rd October 2016, a first-of-its-kind story which will bring to light the ill-effects of blind faith through the life of a 7-year-old girl (Kashvi Kothari) who finds herself stuck in the midst of belief systems led by Maa Kusum Sundari (Karuna Pandey). Through a powerful narrative, Devanshi will question the dubious practices exercised by the so-called god-men and god-women who have, today, become an integral part of our society. The show will air every Monday to Friday at 7:00 PM.
Coming up next will be the second edition of television’s most-loved and well-received show – Nagin Season 2. Picking up 24 years after the first season’s end, the sequel will delve into love, protection of a legacy and revenge thereon, with a nagmani at its helm. As a mystical thriller bringing alive folklore-based themes, Nagin 2 will grab audience attention through a gripping narrative and superlative VFX effects, combined with a popular star-cast including Mouni Roy, Karanveer Bohra, Ada Khan, Sudha Chandran and Aashka Goradia, amongst others. The journey into the world of the unknown will commence starting 8th October 2016, every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00 PM.
Undoubtedly the biggest launch of the season will be COLORS’ marquee property, Bigg Boss 10, which will kick-off starting 16th October 2016, every Monday to Friday at 10:30 PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 9:00 PM. Creating history, this season, the focus shifts to the common man, who will become the erstwhile contestants on the show and live under 24x7 camera scrutiny. Selected after a rigorous audition process, the common man contestants will lead an isolated life, their only contact with the outside world being the show’s superstar host, Salman Khan.
And that’s not all. With variety being the flavour of the season, COLORS has lined up two more shows that promise to enthral and entertain like never before. Dil Se…Dil Tak is a heartfelt love story of a married couple - Parth Bhanushali (Sidharth Shukla) and Sharvari (Rashami Desai), whose dreams of parenthood will be contingent on Teni (Jasmine Bhasin). The show will trace their love, and trials and tribulations as they strive to reunite with the orthodox Bhanushali family. Further, the channel will be launching Indian television’s biggest and most technically sound historical-mytho drama, Shani. Delving into the life of Hinduism’s most ruthless God, Shani will reveal the truths behind myths and dismiss the beliefs that have been passed along over generations.
