Is it the end of the road for Paanchvi Pass?

[an error occurred while processing this directive] Seems like its the end of the road for Shahrukh Khan's Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hai as insiders says the current season might be the last for the show. Star Plus had expected it to be the next biggest thing on Indian Television after Kaun Banega Crorepati. The TRPs for the show have been nowhere close to Kaun Banega Crorepati in its first season hosted by Amitabh Bachchan.

Industry experts believed launching the game show during the IPL season hurt it in the initial phase. But even with the end of the IPL the TRPs have show no signs of improvement. Also too many celebrity episodes haven't helped the cause as the normal episodes in the show tend be over shadowed by celebrity ones. SRK's divided interest during the IPL made thinks worst for the show.


[an error occurred while processing this directive] Shahrukh had an initial contract for 52 episodes out of which 36 episodes have been shot. These are the ones that will be telecast. SRK will be released from contract of shooting the rest 16 episodes. The producers are planning to launch a different game show with Shahrukh early next year.
