Ratings today – Have juggled a lot!

It’s party time for Diya Aur Baati Hum team as well as fans! It has regained its 5.6 ratings and more the drama, more the ratings. Aagey aagey dekho hota hai kya!

Jhalak Dikhla Ja opened with 3.1 which is considerably good! So, let’s see will the shaking of celebs shake the TRPs too?

The third week of Madhubala and Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka has not been that good for them. Ratings have gone down. In Byaah Hamari Bahu Ka, there is no clarity as to what is happening or what is about to happen; the story is just going nowhere. Sincerely, time for some major twist in the tale! Madhubala has not been able to live up to its expectations and that’s why it’s obvious for the ratings to decline.

Surprise package was Mrs. Kaushik Ki Paanch Bahuyeh on Zee TV. It has gone up to 2.7. Wishing all the best to the team to maintain it!

After almost, 3 weeks or even more, Bade Acche Lagte Hain (Sony TV) had regained the ratings of 3.1, had also become a slot leader in 10.30 PM slot, last week! But what happened now? It is no more the slot leader…Punar Vivah and Pratigya both are at top most position with same ratings of 3.0! This is a huge fall for Bade Acche Laggte Hain. There was a huge outrage even on this baseless courtroom drama which audience did not like it at all. But nevertheless, we shall look forward to ‘ek nayi shuruwat’, I’m sure, ratings will soar then!

GRP wise Star Plus is still at number 1 in GECs; followed by Colors, Zee and Sony. There’s just negligible difference between Zee and Colors and both are competing for number 2 position. Sony has been consistently falling and this time it’s a huge fall for it! Buck up Sony team!

Well, that’s it for today. Let’s see what surprise next week brings. Till then, keep watching your favorite shows and keep yourself entertained!

Show me the Money – Are Stars asking too much of moolah?

“Show me the Money” – You might have heard this phrase in the film ‘Jerry Maguire’ starring Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. So why are we talking about it now? Well off lately Bollywood too is gearing up to use this phrase at will.

There was a time when actors were being paid in thousands, then lakhs and then came crores. Well the Crore figure was not so common and a very few were part of this elite club. But thanks to satellite television and its reach to millions of viewers things are changing. Also the Marketing and Advertising industry has managed to rope in the Bollywood stars to sell their products and soon there was a race to say “Show me the Money”. But do you think that the race to earn the highest Moolah is a going out of hands? Well let’s take a tour of some of the most bizarre and crazy facts that might help you to decide for yourself.

Actress Katrina Kaif is truly the empress when it comes to the fashion world. Having an international modeling background, Kats definitely reigns the ramp shows in India. And she is also one of the most sought after actresses in Bollywood. There are reports that she has been offered Rs 1 crore for making a 10-minute appearance in Kochi. She will be on the ramp for just 10 minutes. Just 10 minutes! Well we are not kidding. It’s a fact, she would take home 1 crore in 10 mins. Do ponder and think about it if this trend is going too far.

Next in the list we have Mr Sanjay Dutt. His earlier ventures used to fetch him somewhere around 5 crores a movie. But after his performance as ‘Kancha Cheena’ in the blockbuster, however, Sanjay Dutt has doubled his price. And now he is all set to ensure that he says “Show me the Money”. At least for 10 crores a film, we hope for many ‘Kancha Cheena’ like performances from the actor! 

Not far enough is the other star from the movie Agneepath, Mr Hrithik Roshan. Star Plus’s show Just Dance paid the star approximately Rs 2 crore per episode. The show had around 56 episodes, including screening of entries, auditions, and the actual competition. And this did fetch Roshan approximately Rs 112 crore. Yes 112 crore 😉 Don’t worry we have not forgotten the Bodyguard of the Film Industry. According to reports, Salman had charged Rs 89 crore for the 104 episodes telecast in the first season of 10 Ka Dum. For the second season he asked for an increment of Rs 44 crore which failed to materialize.

SHOW ME THE MONEY 🙂 Who would have thought of such figures being quoted and even being paid? But it’s a fact that there are channels and Movie makers who have actually gone ahead and fulfilled these crazy demands. But do you think its a healthy trend? As they say that there is always a market correction and then such figures will really feel crazy and might be difficult to pay. Time will only tell what will the channels and movie makers do if that happens. But as of now…. The stars are the people who are demanding and saying “Show me the Money”

Satellite rights game…. Who is the real winner??

Imagine that you come to know that the most recent movie that you saw in a movie hall last week is about to be aired on television in a month” time… How do you feel about it??

Well, gone are those days when you had to wait for months and months before you get a chance to watch a new movie on television. It’s the latest trend on television these days. Honestly, in my opinion both the audience and the director are the real winners and not to forget the channel that airs these movies. The channels do mint loads of money as they get maximum viewers watching their channel and no doubt sponsors make it even bigger. They get chance to showcase their latest serials to the audience.

Let me give you an example, I might not watch ZTV and its daily soaps, but as you know that ZTV has bought the satellite rights of Don 2 for 37 crores. Yes you read it right… 37 crores. , so when they air Don 2, during the break, they will show the promos of their daily soaps, and this is when they get a chance to attract new viewers for their shows. Isn’t it interesting!!!! Not only this, the directors too get some return on the investment even before the movie is released. According to some experts, the TV satellite rights market has grown more than 10 times in the last decade alone. “Big flicks bring channels high TRPs and bumper ad revenue. This also gives a chance to the television audience to watch a movie in this living room with his entire family.”

So are you excited to watch the daily soaps 😉 just kidding. So are you excited to know which channel is in the game of buying movie satellite rights…. here you go 

  • Sony Entertainment Television has inked a deal for four movie blockbusters including the super hit ‘The Dirty Picture’. (Amount not disclosed)
  • Zee acquires satellite rights of Don 2 for Rs. 37 crores
  • The satellite rights of `Agneepath` have been sold to Zee for Rs 41 crore
  • `Krrish 3` has been sold for Rs 37 crore to Star TV
  • Sony Entertainment supposedly paid 40 crore for Aamir Khan-Kareena Kapoor’s Movie “Taalash” 

So are you going to watch Agneepath in a Movie Hall or in your living room!!!!  So let us know your views on this latest trend 😉 

Happy Viewing.
