Mumbai, November 1: In week 43, (October 20-26, 2018) of the BARC ratings for Hindi TV Shows, Kumkum Bhagya, Naagin 3, Kundali Bhagya and Mahek have secured the top five spots. For the first time ever since the launch of Naagin 3, the show has slipped from its top position and is at the second place this week. Mahek continues to remain in the charts. It is interesting to see, how these serials have always managed to keep the audience hooked on to the plot every week.

Kumkum Bhagya

There has been a huge change in the ranking order as, after a long time, Kumkum Bhagya on Zee Anmol is back at the No 1 spot in the charts. The serial has garnered 13,753 (000) impressions on Zee Anmol and has got 9,986 (000) impressions on Zee TV. In the current track, viewers will get to see that Pragya has received a sargi ahead of Karwa Chauth, and that Abhi is getting her a promise ring. On the other hand, Tarun's mother is accusing Pragya of using her son and Neha's alliance as an excuse to get close to Abhi

Naagin 3

Naagin 3 on Colors has slipped to the second place and has got 13,135 (000) impressions. Like every year, this serial by Ekta Kapoor has been receiving a lot of love from the audience. The serial has always been at the top spot among the Hindi GECs, ever since its launch.

In the current track, Mahir is asked to torch the Raavan effigy with a bow on fire. Bela, much against her wishes stands by his side while Yuvi stands on the other side. Bela and Mahir then start distributing sweets to everyone present in the function. Yuvi and Bela are forming a plan to get Mahir in an isolated spot, behind the burning effigy through which they can kill him. The third season of the hugely popular serial is based on the story of Ruhi and Vikrant, the two ichchdhaari naags, who have reunited after 100 years and are planning to get married in a shiv mandir. However, Vikrant gets murdered, and Ruhi vows to take revenge from the culprits. The exciting part about this season is that there is not one, but two ichchdhaari naagins.

Kundali Bhagya

Kundali Bhagya has garnered 11,865 (000) impressions on Zee TV, and is at the third place. In the latest episode, Karan will indirectly propose to Preeta.

Preeta takes the phone from her hand and tells Kritika to take good care of Sherlyn before they all reach the hospital. Kritika is confused why Preeta has asked her to take good care of Sherlyn and waits for them to reach the hospital.


Mahek has moved down one place on the charts with 10,244 (000) impressions. It will be interesting to see if there is any change in the existing list of top 5 Hindi serials on the BARC charts in the coming week.
