One of its popular programs is Balika Vadhu. ‘Balika Vadhu’ traces the arduous journey of child bride Anandi from the brink of childhood to womanhood. Married at the tender age of eight, to an equally young Jagdish, she enters a new world which is at once alienating and confusing. and torn away from the merriment of childhood and her family, she has to accept and accustom herself to this new family of strangers, new relationships and accept her roles as a friend, lover, wife and a mother as she forges her way in the world. ‘Balika Vadhu’ very sensitively portrays the plight of children who are unwittingly forced into marriage, in the name of tradition, and have to bear the repercussions for the rest of their lives.

‘Bigg Boss Season 2’, the Indian version of ‘Big Brother’, comes with its unique twists this year that make it bigger and better – ‘newsmakers’ replace ‘celebrities’ in ‘BIG BOSS SEASON 2’.

It chronicles the growing up years of the Krishna in Gokul and traverses his tales in Mathura wherein he brings to task his evil uncle Kans and his sinister designs.
