04 Jun 2021: TRP chart: 'Anupamaa' back on top, 'Indian Idol 12' enters
Anupamaa is back on the numero uno spot. In the recently released BARC TRP chart, we see the Rupali Ganguly-led serial defeating another of Star Plus' hit show called Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin and others to regain the top slot. The chart also saw Indian Idol 12 making an entry in top five, thanks to the numerous controversies it faced in recent times.
Details: 'Indian Idol 12' cashes in on the controversies
To recall, Indian Idol 12 started courting controversies since Kishore Kumar's son alleged that he was asked to praise all contestants, even if they didn't sing well. After that, Abhijeet Sawant, winner of the first season, said the show focuses more on "fake" love stories and participants' economic status, rather than their talent. Its host Aditya Narayan also got into trouble with the MNS.
Change: 'Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin' slips to second spot
Now back to the chart. When Anupamaa was pushed to the second spot, Ghum Hai Kisikey Pyaar Meiin was at the top. This week, after scoring 8098 impressions, the show starring Ayesha Singh and Neil Bhatt, is sitting on the number two position. Another daily soap from the stable of Star Plus, Imlie, has managed to maintain its third position this time as well.
