MUMBAI: Star Plus, which surprised many by inducting the supernatural genre in its crucial weekday prime time band, is at it again.

After launching Antariksh in the Monday - Thursday 8 pm band, the channel has now slotted a kids show Lucky in its Saturday 8 pm slot.
"After launching Antariksh in the weekday 8 pm primetime slot, we are now excited to offer yet another show on the same timeslot on Saturdays for our younger viewers. Lucky is an out and out adventure story packaged with a heavy dose of fun and entertainment. The effort is to rope in the kids group, which has now become a key TV viewing segment," states Star India EVP Deepak Segal.
Produced by Sagar Arts Productions, Lucky is is directed by Nisser Parvej and the cast includes Lucky played by Gautam Rhode; Inder Mohan Sharma played by Gyan Prakash Sharma; captain Paswan played by Banwarilal Jhol & AJ i.e. Acharya Joshi played by Anang Desai, as per an official release.

It’s a story about a young man - Lucky, who runs a fake antique shop in Chor Bazaar and has the simplest ways of living, that is conning people by selling them fake antiques and actually making them believe, that the artifacts are genuine. Lucky is a street smart, confident and intelligent character, who loves life the way it comes until he gets to know about the Rakshak’s who were born for protecting sacred and priceless treasures and that now he is going to be the chosen one: the fifth Rakshak, the release adds.

As Lucky is awaiting its launch, Star Plus is keenly looking forward to the Tam numbers that Antariksh would throw up in its opening week. And the anxiety is justified as the supernatural show counters Zee TV's 8 pm soap Banoo Main Teri Dulhann.
