Star to air ‘The Weakest Link’ version in Hindi

Star’s search for another programme in place of KBC has ended with a Hindi version of the popular BBC game show ‘The Weakest Link’. The new game show will be aired on Star Plus under licence from BBC.

‘The Weakest Link’ is a game show based on team performance and the participants get to knock off a fellow participant who is seen as the weakest link at each stage.

The details of the Indian version of the game show, including the host, are still being worked out. It is still not clear whether Star will go in for celebrity host for the new game show.

KBC, hosted by Amitabh Bachchan, has been the most successful game show in the country and has virtually turned around the fortunes of Star India. Other channels also tried to jump on the game show bandwagon but have not been so successful.

In the meanwhile Zee TV has roped in another film personality Ashutosh Rana, to do a new game show, Challenger, in which six contestants slug it out against each other, with one getting eliminated at every round. Doordarshan too is likely to launch a knowledge-based game show in the near future.
