Star TV to liven up its weekend schedule

Star TV plans to liven up its weekend schedule with a string of new programmes as it seeks to build on its hugely successful weekday lineup of soaps and gameshows. The channel will air six new shows, starting July 8, featuring a mix of dance, horror, travel, music, games and mythology.

Star's shows aired from Monday to Thursday rate among the top three of the 10 in the weekly television rating chart.

The channel's prime-time slot on Friday at 8 p.m. will feature Bollywood star Sonali Bendre anchoring a one-hour fun-and-dance talent show Kya Masti Kya Dhoom.

A new gameshow, Khulja Sim Sim is aimed at matching the success of its Kaun Banega Crorepati hosted by Bollywood superstar, Amitabh Bachchan.

Khulja Sim Sim, a big budget show based on the popular US game show Let's Make a Deal, will be hosted by TV actor Aman Verma. The show's key attraction is that every participant will win a prize which could even be a new car.

The horror show Ssshhhh...Koi hai... will feature eerie stories about ghosts and monsters meant to keep children and teenagers on the edge of their seats.

The channel's Sunday morning menu ranges from the travel show, Musafir Hoon Yaaron hosted by model-actress Deepti Bhatnagar who takes viewers globe-trotting to a mythological programme featuring a pantheon of Hindu gods.
