Zee Anmol’s Kundali Bhagya and Kumkum Bhagya are on the list at no. 1 and no. 2, respectively, in the Hindi GEC Rural category. In the urban category, Colors’ Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi is ruling the audience’s hearts by being on the top, followed by Naagin 3, The Kapil Sharma Show, Super Dancer Chapter 3-Final Auditions and Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai. In the rural segment, Zee Anmol’s Mahek, Dangal TV’s Ramayan and Zee Anmol’s Ek Main Aur Ek Tu have covered third, fourth and fifth spots, respectively.

Overall, the shows that got the thumbs up from the Hindi channel viewers are Naagin 3, Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi Jigar Pe Trigger, Kundali Bhagya, Kumkum Bhagya, and Star Bharat’s Radhakrishn. Here are the lists:

Naagin 3 coming back to the top is a sigh of relief for the makers. However, The Kapil Sharma Show managing to stay on the list is also a big achievement. The space that Zee’s Kundali Bhagya and Kumkum Bhagya have received on the list is appreciable, more because Zee Anmol runs the episodes which have already been aired months back on Zee TV.

Meanwhile, reports suggest that Naagin 3 will soon be going off-air. While there’s no confirmation on the same, tellychakkar had reported earlier that Colors’ supernatural show Kavach will replace Naagin 3 as the prime time weekend show with its new season. The website also informed that the audition for the second season has already begun and the makers will soon announce its return on Hindi television. Watch out this space for more latest updates!
