A great Indian wedding?

Ratan Ka Rishta gets Ram Kapoor, Rakshanda Khan as special guests

It seems holding a swayamwar for a person whose name starts with the letter R does not guarantee success. So while Rakhi Sawant and Rahul Mahajan managed to bring in the necessary ratings during the first two seasons of Imagine’s show, Ratan Rajpoot is yet to match that in the third season. According to reports, Swayamvar Season 3 – Ratan Ka Rishta has got an AMAP rating of only 1.2 as compared to Rakhi’s 3.5 and Rahul’s 2.4. And this, despite the very popular Hiten Tejwani hosting the show and the very…err…loud Dolly Bindra interrogating the grooms. But it seems the makers have not yet given up on the ‘R’ factor. So they are bringing in Ram Kapoor, Ragini Khanna and Rakshanda Khan as special guests on the show. This Thursday, Ram will quiz the grooms and give Ratan some brotherly advice. On Friday, Rakshanda and Ragini will teach the grooms to dance so that they can put up a special performance and woo their lady in style. Will these efforts really help the show bring in viewers? (We won’t even bother to ask if they will help Ratan make the right choice, because we are not quite sure if that is the point here.) We doubt it.
