HIT OR FLOP: Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, Kundali Bhagya, Naagin 3, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah?
Ekta Kapoor scores two fluent victories. Her bhagya is zor. Kundali Bhagya has moved up from 6 to 5, while Kumkum Bhagya has climbed up from 10 to 7. But someone didn't pay attention to the No 10 slot- Swastik Productions who are behind Radhakrishn. After holding the No 10 slot for 3 continuous weeks, this Sumedh Mudgalkar-Mallika Singh starrer is out from the coveted list of Top 10.

However, Ekta has to burn some midnight oil on her Parth Samthaan-Erica Fernandes-Hina Khan saga Kasautii Zindagii Kay 2, it's just not getting into the top rung. Her Naagin 3 (Karishma Tanna, Rakshanda Khan, Surbhi Jyoti, Anita Hassanandani) of course stays rock solid on 2, India clearly loves snakes and their stories. Simmba maker Rohit Shetty continues his glorious run on small screen too- Khatron Ke Khiladi 9, he misplaced his magic wand only when he directed Shah Rukh Khan-Kajol-Varun Dhawan-Kriti Sanon starrer Dilwale. FYI, he admitted in my interview that contrary to rumours, SRK had not interfered in the script or making and he himself was responsible for introducing a longish romantic track between Khan and Kajol.

So, what else has changed? Well, a small slip experienced by Rajan Shahi's Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai, it's now at 6 and not at 5 like Week 7. And a bit of jump for Super Dancer 3, though I still loudly shout out to Sony and Geeta Kapoor, Shilpa Shetty and Anurag Basu to condemn the dangerous dances that the children are doing and putting themselves in danger.

Meanwhile, Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah moved up from 9 to 8. Have its fans got the whiff that they might soon see a new Dayaben, or is Disha Vakani returning (on terms mutually acceptable to Asit Modi and her, both)?

I'll be back next Thursday and hope we have some big shifts (Read: shocks) in certain positions. Static news is boring.
