The actors of Star Plus' Baa Bahu Aur Baby are livid that the channel has changed the time slot of the above slice show from Fri-Sun, 9.30PM to just Saturday and Sunday, 9.30PM owing to the launch of their new show Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai at the 9.30 PM slot from Monday to Friday.

Baa Bahu Aur Baby may get a time change...
Says Lubna Salim who essays the role of Leela Bhabhi in the show, "If this change without proper intimation was not enough, the channel went ahead and canceled some of the subsequent Sunday episodes of Baa Bahu, which are now given one hour duration. Last week, the channel aired Nach Baliye 4 Finale at our 9.30 pm slot, while the earlier week saw the telecast of Star Screen Awards".

"Change of slot does affect the viewers who are used to tuning in at a specific time slot every weekend. We agree that reality shows and special events give the channel the extra TRPs, but at least don't give a step-motherly treatment to a show which has delivered decent ratings over the years!! They should also remember that we are the only weekend fiction show which has delivered numbers", adds Lubna.

Co-Producer Aatish Kapadia admits that there is a situation with the slotting. "This issue had occurred even last year when Nach Baliye 3 was there, and this year all got so complicated with few Star Plus dailies being extended to Friday too. However, I am optimistic that a solution will be worked out very soon. We have a meeting scheduled with the channel tomorrow, and are most likely to get a time change. Even the channel does not want to loose out on a show which is giving good rating in its 4th year running", Aatish states.

For the uninitiated, Producer J.D. Majethia had recently quoted on Telly Buzz that the channel has promised him of a fixed time slot in the coming months. And now, it certainly looks like the channel is keeping its word!!

All we can say to the loyal watchers of the show is to watch this space for more on the new slot!!

caramel_beauty @caramel_beauty 14 years ago all you people who hate Bidaii, find something else to hate on. its an winderful show, and its getting more ratings than nay other show. besides baa bahu and baby is soo boring. its a middle class drama. it obviously has no importance and maybe its trp sucks as well. thats why it has no importance in Star Plus. BIDAI RULES!!
