With the arrival of the holy month, come the much-awaited Ramadan transmissions. This year’s line-up of Ramzan show hosts will include some old and new faces. Additionally, there are some interesting segments lined up.
As the holy month begins, Muslims take this as an opportunity for spiritual upheaval and ‘revamp’ themselves. From their television watching habits to their apparel. Even celebs are seen ditching Western attire for modest shalwar kameez with dupatta, used as a head covering.
Every channel hosts a Ramadan transmission with celebrity hosts, to game show segments to attract ratings. So, what do they have lined up this year?
Here’s a list of the major Ramadan transmissions to look out for this month.
