colorskannadaThe Mukesh Ambani majority owned Viacom18 is firing ahead on two regional markets: Kannada and Bangla. Its flanking Kannada GEC Colors Super is all charged up to roll out eight show come 11 June, while Colors Bangla is unveiling a new season of the Who Wants to be a Millionaire format - Ke Hobe Banglar Kotipoti.

The reason: the channel's management is hoping to build up on the momentum the two have been gathering. While Colors Super has grown by 280 per cent in terms of reach and viewership in just the past year, Colors Bangla has seen its viewership double while its reach has gone up from 28 per cent to 40 per cent and its share has leapfrogged to eight per cent. So much so that it ranks third in the regional pecking order after Colors Kannada and Colors Marathi for Viacom18.
