Punar Vivah finally bags the numbers
Gurmeet Choudhary and Kratika Sengar starrer Punar Vivah (Zee TV) produced by Shashi Sumeet Mittal Production Pvt Ltd was launched with much fanfare and hoopla. But sadly, it never managed to put the TRP chart on fire. But like true optimists, Gurmeet and producer Sumeet never lost hope and both told Tellychakkar.com earlier that the soap will pick up in the coming days. And their premonition has come true. The show has bagged the top rank amongst all Zee TV shows.
In the TAM ratings of week 19, Punar Vivah bagged 2.9 TVR. It has clearly emerged as the slot winner across GECs (Star Plus’ Partigya got 2.7, Sony Entertainment Television’s Bade Acche Lagte Hain managed to earn 2.6 and Colors’ Na Bole Tum Na Maine Kuch Kaha bagged 1.5).
"The story is getting back to its emotional crust and hence, it is being liked by the viewers. Currently, we are concentrating on the story and not on the numbers. If the story works, numbers will automatically come," shared Sumeet
Show’s female lead, Kratika Sengar aka Aarti also sounded jubilant. "I remember I was told that the 10:30 pm slot never worked for Zee TV as the previous shows in this slot had just managed to gain 0.8 TRP or a maximum of 1. However, I did take up this show as I believed in the story and now the jinx is broken. We have managed to be number one and hence we have all the reasons to be happy."
Handsome Gurmeet Choudhary aka Yash said, "I really feel lucky as this is my third show that has managed to be number one after Ramayan and Geet. I remember when I had taken up Geet, I wasn’t sure if it would top the numbers, however it did. But when I took up Punar Vivah the pressure was even more as people were expecting a lot from me. There were a lot of them who thought I shouldn’t have taken up the project but with the help of the entire team and our producers, the show has managed to top the chart."
Congrats, Punar Vivah!!!
