The result was, ‘Zee TV’, coming up with “Ramayan”, and ‘Colors’, announcing their ambitious venture, “Durga”, as a competition to the ‘Life OK’ show. the ‘Colors’ show, “Durga”, which is being made by, Sagar Arts, took a long time to go on the floors, as the channel wanted it to be larger than life, and worthy of giving tough competition to, “Mahadev”.
Finally after a long time, showing complete satisfaction in the show, the channel has given its go ahead signal to the production house. Now that the teasers of the show are out, it will be aired soon.
