Actor and TV host Salman Khan is keen on a TRP tussle with Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati 6
When a journalist asked him to comment on the astounding 6.1 television rating points (TRP) of the opening episode of KBC 6, Salman diverted the question to Raj Nayak, CEO, Colors, and Deepak Dhar, MD, Endemol India. Both Nayak and Dhar avoided answering, moving on to the next journo. But after every new query, Salman made sure to remind the two officials that they still had to reply to the KBC question. “I wanna know… (if they planned to tackle KBC 6),” he said.
Relenting, both the television head honchos said that Kaun Banega Crorepati? 6 was indeed one of their competitors and that BB6 was aimed at toppling it through the ‘family’ format this season. This, of course, will be possible only on the weekend – KBC 6 airs on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8.30 to 10pm and Bigg Boss 6 will air everyday between 9 to 10.30pm, starting October 7, 2012. So, it’s more a battle between major seasonal shows of two main general entertainment channels of India.
