Hindi GEC Colors is set to launch a new series titled 'Devanshi' on 3 October. 'Devanshi' will air at 7 pm while Colors' current show 'Thapki... Pyaar Ki' will move to 6.30 pm. Produced by Full House Media, the new show draws inspiration loosely from the age-old tale of Krishna and Kansa, and talks about the blind beliefs in the name of ultimate power. Narrating a tale about a child and a god-woman, the series explores how people's belief systems are taken advantage of. Commenting on the new show, Colors programming head Manisha Sharma says, "Religious prejudice in the name of God and faith has created a void in our country's growth. With 'Devanshi', Colors mirrors this hard-hitting reality to present a novel and unexplored concept that puts the spotlight on fraudulent practices conducted in the name of devotion. Narrating a tale about a child and a god-woman, the show is in line with our endeavour to deliver well-meaning content while allowing us to experiment with our programming line-up. As Devanshi's journey of good vs evil takes over the 7 pm slot on Colors, 'Thapki...Pyaar Ki' will continue to engage viewers at a brand-new timeslot of 6:30 pm." The story focuses on a 7-year-old girl whose life changes when she's accidentally dropped into a god-woman's 'hundi' as an infant, and faces the brunt of being a blessed child. 'Devanshi' will focus on the larger thought of good versus evil, in this case defeating the evil god-woman, Mata KusumSundari.
