MTV’s Bakra now extended to Nick, comedy show begins from today

Nick, the kids’ channel from MTV Networks, has announced the launch of ‘Bakra’, starting June 5, 2006. ‘Bakra’, a popular hidden camera comedy show produced by MTV, is Nick’s eighth new launch this year and will feature on Nick’s popular ‘Nick Hahaha’ comedy block.

The ‘Bakra’ episodes on Nick, chosen from the existing library, have already run on MTV over the last few years.

Hema Govindan, Vice-President and General Manager, Nick India, said, “‘Bakra’, whose popularity transcends all ages, will be a valuable addition to our already laugh-riotous ‘Nick Hahaha’ block, which also includes ‘Kenan & Kel’, ‘Drake & Josh’ and ‘Laurel & Hardy’. We’re sure that during summer vacations, ‘Bakra’ on Nick will keep our young audiences smiling.”

Nick’s ‘Bakra’ will be on the same lines as MTV Bakra, hence host Cyrus Broacha will now be on the kids’ channel as well. Starting June 5, 2006 ‘Bakra’ will air every weekday at 6.30 pm, repeating at 9.30 pm with one-hour specials at 4 pm on weekends.
