Amitabh Bachchan Surprised at the Falling Down of TRP Rating of ‘Panchvi Pass’

Amitabh Bachchan has been surprised to know that TRP rating of ‘Panchvi Pass’ is decreasing. The veteran star actor Amitabh, who brought a revolution in TV game show though hosting ‘Kaun Banega Karodpathi,’ is keen to find out the reasons behind such falling in TRP ratings of Panchvi Pass even though the show is hosted by Bollywood icon Shah Rukh Khan. Mr. Bachchan also raised question if TRP rating reflects the current picture of popularity of a television program.

Hindu reported:

The Bollywood icon was also skeptical of the format of question-answer game shows. "Why is there a depleted performance despite the presence of the biggest name in the business?" he asked. The actor also wanted to know if TV ratings are a correct indicator of the popularity of a particular show.

Amitabh Bachchan also said that TV viewership had been increased then what is the reason behind the falling of a television program of this kind. He at last said that he was unable to find out any specific reason behind such falling interest of this game show.

Well, I think, Indian television viewers are now more interested to the ongoing IPl Twenty20 tournament. Normally cricket is a long time game, but as IPL is being held on Twenty20 format of Cricket, television viewers found the three-hour long match much more interesting and entertaining than game shows or reality talent hunt programs. Moreover, the timing of IPL is also good for the working class people as the matches start from 8:00 pm. So, I think, once the tournament ends up, the other television programs will get back the expected TRP ratings on the board.
