Here are some interesting details of foreign viewership
Salman Khan’s Dus Ka Dum has got off to a resounding start in the UK. The show made a comeback on Indian Television after nine years. The first episode aired on June 4 and was trending on social media. Uk-based entertainment portal, BizAsiaLive.com has revealed the statistics for the premiere episode in the country. It seems the show was watched by 20,700 viewers in the UK, which comes upto 0.11 per cent. Amitabh Bachchan’s Kaun Banega Crorepati had opened to 24,000, which was higher number wise but it had a smaller share of 0.04 per cent. This was exclusively revealed by BizAsiaLive.com, which monitors the performance of Indian and Pakistani shows in the UK.
While the first episode was bit of a drag, the second one got a lot of appreciation from viewers. Sony Entertainment Television is ready to roll out Indian Idol and Kaun Banega Crorepati in the coming months. It also launched Zindagi Ke Crossroads, which is a show with an unique concept. We saw some heart-warming moments when Salman decided to help a mother send her child to a better school. Mika Singh who has crooned the title song of Dus Ka Dum said, “I am delighted to be singing the title track of Dus Ka Dum. There is a major recall value for Dus Ka Dum’s earlier title track, hence we had a huge task ahead of us to match up to the music taste of today’s generation. We have retained the song’s original flavour and given it a completely new twist and zing. It is always exciting to record for Salman bhai as, just like him, his songs need a certain amount of energy and I have always tried to match up to that.”
