Infinity Still Rules Indian Television- A little light over the Top Shows in Demand

Indian Television has some of the longest running serials in the history of television. The entire sector is known for pridefully making serials that last for years. While the whole world shifted to presenting stories in seasons, infinite stories still rule Indian television channels. Some channels have picked up on the trend and tried to present the stories in beautiful short formats but the attention that was observed for the first season, was not observed for the second or the third and so on.

Some shows like Naagin have defied this trend and succeeded in making story presentation in limited number of episodes, work. But the shows that are currently on the top of the viewership charts in India are the longest running ones. Check out some of them here.
