Shraddha making way for Mahayatra

Shraddha which airs on Star Plus at the daily slot of 7 pm will end on January 15th; Mahayatra, the reality show with a novel concept starts 18th January at the same time slot…

Siddhanth Cinevision’s Shraddha on Star Plus, which focused on the girl of the family being the only support to her old parents, in fulfilling their dream of getting a darshan of the ‘Chaar Dham’ did not live up to its expectations, and never got a decent rating ever since its launch.

As a result of this, Shraddha which launched on the auspicious day of Dussehra, on 28th September 2009 will be soon taken off air!!

According to our source, “Shraddha will end on 15th January 2010. And replacing it will be the much-anticipated reality show with a novelty, Mahayatra”.

Well, the coincidence here is that, Mahayatra the reality show is also based on the concept of 12 doting sons taking their parents on a pilgrimage to the ‘Chaar Dhaam’. The show will have an emotional connect with the audience as they will get to see the hurdles undertaken by the sons to fulfil their parents’ wishes. The show will also witness various celebrities walking their way along with the 12 families. Manish Goel who was last seen in Zara Nachke Dikha will be seen hosting the show. Mahayatra is produced by Miditech.

Mahayatra launches on Star Plus on January 18th at the 7 pm slot and will be aired from Monday to Friday, the promos of which are already on air.

Shweta Tiwari on a ‘Mahayatra’

Usually when we need healing or the helping hand of almighty during difficult times we try to seek solace by reaching out to him at holy places. It was quite puzzling when we got to know that the young and gorgeous Shweta Tiwari went on a pilgrimage. It was only after we dug a little deeper that we came to know, it was all for another television show.

According to our source, “Mahayatra is a reality show on Star Plus which will air on soon. The program is such that, different episodes will show different celebrities going for one of the famous pilgrim places of our country and take darshan. Shweta Tiwari went to Rudra Prayag, near Badrinath temple, accompanied by her mom.”

We contacted Shweta who confirmed the news. She says, “It was a beautiful experience. It’s indeed a very nice feeling to go to such a beautiful place. The entire region is blessed with immense natural beauty, places of religious importance, lakes and glaciers. It is also the point of confluence of rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini.”

If sources are to be believed Mahayatra will also feature a few Bollywood actors like Sunny Deol, his father Dharmendra and Urmila Matondkar.

We just hope whatever Shweta prayed for comes true.
