This Is Why Kapil Sharma Should Thank Baba Ramdev

After chasing Baba Ramdev for over a year, the makers of The Kapil Sharma Show managed to pull off a casting coup of sorts and got the yoga guru on board. And now, the team is reaping rewards of all the hard work that went behind it. For, Week 4 (January 20-26), which featured Baba Ramdev, turned out to be a smashing week for The Kapil Sharma Show.

While Saturday’s (January 21) episode saw Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui make an appearance to promote Raees, Sunday (January 22) had Baba Ramdev. The yoga guru’s antics were loved by the viewers to such an extent that it beat the ratings of the SRK episode by a substantial margin.

Furthermore, Ekta Kapoor maintained her hold on the numero uno position with her Mouni Roy-starrer Naagin 2. The supernatural drama remains undefeated for 4 months.

Colors’ Shakti – Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki slipped by a position and was at No. 3 in Week 4. However, looking at the show’s consistency, we are sure it will bounce back in Week 5.

Up next, Zee TV’s Kumkum Bhagya featuring Shabbir Ahluwalia and Sriti Jha was stable at No. 4 in the said week. It’s good news for the makers considering the track has been moving at a snail’s pace for a while now.

Divyanka Tripathi and Devoleena Bhattacharjee, whose shows Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and Saath Nibhaana Saathiya respectively, had given their makers a reason to smile with their improved performance in Week 3, registered a drop in viewership, yet again. While Saath...stood at the 6th position, Yeh Hai... was at No.7 (they were at No. 5 and 6 in Week 3). Guess, the happiness was short-lived.

Recording an upswing in its ratings was Colors show Udaan. The drama went up 2 notches to clinch the 5th position. The ongoing track of Kamal Narayan (Sai Ballal) torturing Suraj (Vijayendra Kumeria) and Chakor (Meera Deosthale) has kept the audiences hooked.
