The growth of Star Plus was majorly driven by Diya aur Baati Hum, in which there a highpoint in the story in Week 42. This high point boosted the overall reach & TSV levels of Star Plus in 21:00 slot.

Besides Diya aur Baati Hum, the grand finale of Dance+ also helped in contributing to the overall growth of Star Plus.
