Star India is reported to be rebranding Life Ok with a new look and name it Star Bharat. The channel, scheduled to launch on August 15, will have a modern outlook with an Indian feel.
According to reports most of the old shows like ‘May I Come in Madam’, ‘Sher-E-Punjab’, ‘Ranjeet Singh’, and ‘Chandrakanta’ will go off air while Savdhan India and Ghulam will continue in Star Bharat. The channel is reported to also bring in new shows like ‘Ayushamaan Bhava’, ‘Kya Haal Paanchal’ and ‘Shatranj’.
And now, if recent reports are to be believed then, ‘Thapki…Pyaar Ki’ fame TV actress Jigyasa Singh has been finalised for an upcoming show on the channel.
According to an entertainment portal, “One of the shows in the pipeline is being produced by Vinnay RD Productions, the makers of the popular show, Jamai Raja. And as a part of the casting, Thapki…Pyaar Ki lead actress, Jigyasa Singh has been roped in to play the main lead.”
Speaking about the development, a source further told India Forums that, “things are yet to be finalized on the paper.”
But if this news turns out to be true then it will surely be a good news for Jigyasa’s fans who are already missing seeing her on-screen ever since her Colors show went off-air last month.
Initially, ‘Thapki…Pyaar Ki’ was doing well in the early evening time slot and the performance of the show’s lead actress Jigyasa Singh loved by the viewers. But, from the last few months the show’s TRP was dipping constantly due to which the show went off-air after a good run of around 2 years.
Star Bharat will launch with an extravagant musical show.
