Mumbai – Narrating stories that evoke a multitude of emotions, India’s leading Hindi General Entertainment Channel, COLORS, is extending its programming to an early evening band starting 5pm onwards.
Offering viewers diverse entertainment, the channel will be adding two new genres to its mix – Bhaag Bakool Bhaag and Savitri Devi College and Hospital. While Bhaag Bakool Bhaag, produced by Edit II Productions, will be a light-hearted sitcom highlighting the various dilemmas faced by the lead protagonist, Bakool after getting married to two women, Savitri Devi College and Hospital, produced by Rashmi Sharma Telefilms Ltd, tells the story of a young medical intern, Saachi Mishra who strives to fulfil her mother’s dreams while unwittingly furthering her hidden motives. The extended entertainment extravaganza begins with Bhaag Bakool Bhaag to air every Monday to Friday and Savitri Devi College and Hospital to air as an hour-long show every Monday to Friday. Thapki Pyaar Ki will move to the 5PM time band.
Bhaag Bakool Bhaag is a slice of life sitcom highlighting the plight of a Gujarati man, Bakool Vasavda who is torn between his two wives Jigna and Sheena . Adding more hilarity to Bakool’s over-complicated life of keeping both his wives separate and happy, are his overdramatic mother Kokilaben and his best friend-cum-confidant Harishankar Upadhyay aka Harry. Both wives have drastically different personalities, with Jigna being more traditional while Tina has a modern outlook towards life. It is this disparity which often puts Bakool in catch-22 situations that make for many laughter-inducing moments, promising to make Bhaag Bakool Bhaag a complete family entertainer.
