The other show that promises viewers loads of fun, in times of recession is the reality show Entertainment Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega (Mon-Thurs, 10.00 pm & Fri, 9.00 pm).

Fiction on television has become the daily dose of entertainment for viewers in India. Some of the new fiction shows on Sony will focus on powerful protagonists who will overcome situations in the most despairing circumstances and come out winners.

Chittod Ki Rani Padmini Ka Johur (Mon-Thurs, 8.00 pm) - is the story of the beautiful warrior princess, known for her ethereal beauty, grit, valor, patriotism & sacrifice. History continues to hail this legendary queen, even to this day, as a powerful queen of our times. This historical is mounted on huge scale & is produced by Nitin Chandrakant Desai (the well known Art Director of Jodha Akbar & many blockbuster films). he lead star cast includes Tejaswini Lonari as Padmini, Rohit Bakshi as Ratan Singh, Mukesh Rishi as Allahuddin Khilji and a host of other actors.

Shanti you are still in the hope for a Jassi sequel? I think if Sony brings back Jassi 2 then there should be a Kkusum 2, Kyunki 2, Kahani 2, Kasauti 2, Kaisa yeh Pyaar Hai 2, Kasam Se 2, Saath Phere 2, and many more twos. I think it is best if the GECs try to stick to fresh concepts. These reality shows are a fatigue on Indian TV and only serials seem to keep some freshness.
