BARC Report Week 52: Naagin 2 ends on a high note, Sasural Simar Ka makes a thunderous comeback on top five


It is a wrap up for 2016. The BARC Report for Week 52 is here. It is different from week 51 where Super Dancer took over the top spot. Well, Naagin 2 is back to its glorious place followed by Kumkum Bhagya and Naagin on Rishtey! The fourth and fifth spot are taken by Colors’ Shakti…Astitva Ke Ehsaas Ki and Sasural Simar Ka. Yes, it has been a few months since Sasural Simar Ka has bid adieu to makkhis, daayans and Patali Devi…Post leap, the show is focused on Simar and her daughter Anjali, who is not an ideal bahu. This has brought back the loyal viewers of the show. Shakti is also made a comeback in the top five. (Also Read: BARC Ratings Week 52: Super Dancer finale beat The Kapil Sharma Show – find out how!)
