India’s leading television, media and entertainment company, ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) have commissioned a first season of Armoza’s studio game show Who’s Asking?. It will air on their newly launched Hindi General Entertainment Channel &TV, and is set to be the channel’s flagship non-fiction show. Locally known as India Poochega – Sabse Shaana Kaun?, the game show will be produced by Big Synergy and is set to air daily from 2 March during the 9pm prime time slot.
The adaptation will be hosted by Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan, with this game show marking his long-awaited return to the small screen following his global success as a Bollywood actor. Shah Rukh Khan was last year named the 2nd richest actor in the world, and was the only Indian actor in the top 10 combined rich list of Bollywood and Hollywood stars.
Asked how it feels to be back on TV, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I started with TV [and] I would want to give back to TV. I feel this show will help me in achieving that… I always wait for something like this. I didn’t get anything interesting till this show.” He also added about the show, “India Poochega – Sabse Shaana Kaun? is a unique game show that gives merit to the street smart ones. You might not be a scholar or a master in any field but if you are smart then this game show is for you.”
Who’s Asking? was also recently commissioned by Thailand’s Thairath TV, and the Thai adaptation is set to start airing in early March too.
