Rishtey, the free-to-air channel from Viacom18, is gearing up to attract more viewers. The channel is adding a diverse mix of finite fiction shows in its programming line-up, from across the border, starting June 2015.
The Hindi general entertainment channel, which launched towards the end of 2013, will now add some fresh content to extend its programming line-up. It was, so far, airing shows from Colors' library.
The channel currently telecasts shows such as 'Udaan', 'Madhubala', 'Sasural Simar Ka' and 'Meri Aashiqui Tum Se Hi'. Adding to the bouquet will be a new finite series, 'Aasmano Pe Likha' which will air every Monday to Friday at 10 pm. A romantic saga, 'Aasmano Pe Likha' is about the union of two strangers Aliaan and Qudsia who get married by tryst of fate, and their relationship grows stronger with every passing day.
Starting June 13, the channel will also air Rohit Shetty-starrer, 'Khatron Ke Khiladi-Darr Ka Blockbuster', every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm. On Sundays, Rishtey will showcase four off-beat and critically acclaimed movies such as 'Dharam Sankat Mein', 'Saheb Biwi aur Gangster Returns', 'Bombay Talkies' and 'One by Two', as part of the channel's World Television Premiere line-up. Special afternoon movie festivals on weekdays will also liven up the programming offering. 'Akshay Kumar Movie Festival' will feature the actor's best works like 'Special 26', 'Oh My God', 'Boss' and this will be followed by an 'Action Movie Fiesta' to keep the thrill and excitement alive.
