Is it too much of Shah Rukh on Zor Ka Jhatka?

A Zor Ka Jhatka contestant vents his spleen in reaction to yesterday's premier episode of the Shah Rukh Khan hosted big show on Imagine..

While it is to be seen whether Imagine TV's new reality show Zor Ka Jhatka gives a big jhatka to the channel's not-so-happening ratings, the very first episode which was telecast last night has already given a big jolt to its contestants.

According to one who did not want to be named, the channel in an attempt to milk the Shahrukh Khan charisma has gone overboard. Instead of retaining all the fun which happened on the obstacle course in Argentina, the creative team kept cutting back to the super star who is just supposed to be a voice over.

The contestant murmured, "I wonder why the channel even spent such huge amounts of money to take us to Argentina when they did not want to concentrate on the adventurous tasks which we performed with great elan. The over emphasis on the voice over goes totally against the grain of Wipe Out which is a very popular format internationally".

Apparently they even edited out the interesting conversations the contestants had with SRK. Only his witty comment on what was happening was left out.

The furious khabru added, "The first episode was also supposed to have proper introductions of the contestants, but it never happened.  Anchor Saumya Tandon was lucky as SRK praised her. A lot more drama and interesting content did happen as the rounds progressed, but we wonder whether the audience will ever get to watch it. I don't blame Shahrukh, for the channel and production house has made him do this. This just shows that the makers do not trust their own content and banks only on big names to pull them through. Do they not realize that good content sells?  Had big names alone worked, Tees Mar Khan would have been a major hit. I guess we become victims of what happens when you have to share screen space with a big Bollywood star"

We wonder what the viewers' reaction is on this very point raised by the contestant..

    Is it too much of Shah Rukh on Zor Ka Jhatka?

    Yes, agree its too much of SRK than participants.... I hv watched uk version of Total wipeout & compare to that very less space given to participants & Soumya tondon... Having said that I am big fan of SRK, SRK ke liye kuchh bhi sirji, love listening to bakvas jokes or terminology like Big balls, GPL, angels or his stupid comments on each & every participant....

    Yes, Its too much of SRK

    Even though I believe SRK is a good host,somehow his work in ZKJ hasnt been very appealing.The commentary isnt too good as well.

    It seems the Makers are just trying to cash on SRK's fansbase.The concentration should have been equally on the show, the content, the participants and then its hosts rather than just banking on SRK's popularity.

    The international format is much better compared to this one.
    If they show more of the tasks performed, the contestants rapport with each other and the hosts,it will work in their favour.
    But as for now,the show is not as entertaining as it supposedly should have been.
