If you are a diehard fan of Star Plus’ medical drama Sanjivani, here is an exciting piece of news for you. The popular show, which was rumoured to be bidding adieu to audiences in coming few weeks, has been given a three-month extension.

Producer Siddharth P Malhotra has confirmed that Sanjivani will stay on-air for yet another three months. However, it will move from its original 19:30 time slot to 18:30 time slot, with a new agreement in place from 25th January. “We finished our prior 6 months contract term on the 25th, and now it is extended to a new slot at 6:30,” Malhotra told an entertainment portal.

If the series succeeds in arresting audiences’ attention in the 18:30 slot, the channel can extend its run for a further six months. “3 months as per contract at 6:30, extendable to 6 months more,” added the producer. He also said that a number of twists and turns are in store to keep the popularity of the show alive in the 18:30 slot.

In the original 19:30 time slot of Sanjivani, Star Plus is introducing a new show titled Dadi Amma Maan Jaao. Buzz had it earlier that Rajshri Productions’ series was about to replace Yehh Jadu Hai Jinn Ka but due to its popularity, it has been extended.
