Mukti Bandhan to get a new slot; Parichay to take 9.30 pm slot

While Mukti Bandhan gets a new lease of life, Parichay gets the prime time slot of 9.30 pm.

Colors' Mukti Bandhan produced by Shobhna Desai Productions, the tale of an ordinary man I.M. Virani with a great business sense won a lot of critical acclaim in terms of its content, but never could break the shackles of the average ratings and secure a better rating on the TRP chart. This only meant that the show was always in danger of going off air. And with the new Balaji Telefilms' show Parichay all ready for launch, there had been a buzz about Mukti Bandhan either going off air
or getting moved to a new slot.

The latest on this is that the channel has decided to shift Mukti Bandhan to a new slot rather than ending the unique show.

A little birdie tells us, "Mukti Bandhan in all probability will get moved to the vacant slot of 11PM, and Parichay starring Sameer Soni will be given the prime time slot of 9.30 pm".

We tried contacting Producer Shobhna Desai, but could not reach through to her.

This development is most likely to happen in mid August, when Parichay launches.

Let's hope that this shift in time turns good for Mukti Bandhan..

    releived mukti bandhan not goin off air...i don't mind seeing it at 11pm.its a unique show on colors.and as said this show is for classes not for has a different appeal.the show was not getting trp because of that "yeh rishta..."which our normal masses r interested in saas-bahu politics..also cannot understand all crap serials like uttran and that specially balika vadhu-anandi crying out for 5 yrs. .why the hell show with creativity does not stand out...bas TRP dekhni hain...anywayz we want mukti bandhan to get high trps.the show truly rocks and gives inspiration to young generation.hope for the best.
    MB is a master piece.the best show on one has daring to throw this show out.

    Mukti bandhan is a no nonsense show and cannot be compared with craps like Uttaran and LTL and seriously all other shows going in Colors or any other channel.. No offence to those who like these shows.LTL,Uttaran or NIAdl could have been moved to another slot. I cannot understand why channels cannot allow content and creativity to flourish. By the way i am damn sure this new show "parichay" by balaji is just going to be a crap , unrealistic like other Ekta serials
