Star TV has confirmed that it will be re-running its cult classic show ‘Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon’ in July on Star Life Ok (international beam including UK and USA).
The hugely successful show, which starred Barun Sobti and Sanaya Irani, ended in December last year. At the time of its end, there was outcry from the show’s loyal fan base around the world. Lead actor, Sobti wanted to leave the show to pursue a film career resulting in the programme to end.
The broadcaster is now bringing back the show by re-running the whole series from the start in Hindi. Also, for the first time ever for a Hindi show, ‘Iss Pyar Ko Kya Naam Doon’ will be dubbed in English too so viewers can choose between the version they want to watch. The English version will be dubbed by professional voiceovers.
A launch date for both versions is yet to be announced. However, BizAsia can confirm the Hindi version will air during weekday afternoons and the English – early evenings. Both versions will be shown each day.
In India, the Star Utsav is likely to broadcast the show but a launch for this is yet to be confirmed.
