Colors' longest running show "Balika Vadhu," which recently saw a major change in its storyline after it took a 15-year leap and introduced several new faces, will soon witness another change in its timeslot.

According to an India Forums report, "Balika Vadhu," which has been airing at 8 p.m., will be shifting to the 6:30 p.m. time slot. The report said that the channel has decided to telecast the show at the new time to make way for new show "Shakti-Astitva Ek Ehsaas Kii," which will be aired at 8 p.m. slot from May 30.

The news will surely come as a surprise to the viewers of "Balika Vadhu," who have been watching the show at the current timeslot since the longest time. Post-leap, the show is essentially revolving around the characters Nandini (played by Mahii Vij), Dr Amit Goel (played by Avinash) and Krish (played by Ruslaan), besides focusing on highlighting social evils.

Meanwhile, "Shakti-Astitva Ek Ehsaas Kii" will see Vivian Dsena and Rubina Dilaik in lead roles. Both the actors will be making a comeback to TV shows after a gap of around two years. Vivian was last seen on television show "Madhubala-Ek Ishq Ek Junoon," while Rubina's last fiction show was "Jeannie Aur Juju."

Elated to be back on TV, Rubina had told India Forums that she can't wait to start shooting. "Yes, I have signed on for 'Shakti-Astitva Ehsaas Kii' opposite Vivian which will be telecasted on Colors. I am really excited about the show and cannot wait to start the shoot. The story is a backdrop in the amazing Punjab and is a tale about two sisters. And amidst that, a love story forms the foreground," she had said.

Talking about her role on the show, the actress had said: "I cannot reveal much about the role right now, but I can say one thing for sure and that it is something so different and hasn't been attempted in the history of television before."
