Sony Entertainment Television is looking to strengthen its weekend slot with Golden Glory Viewers Choice Award. The award is India's search for the favourite Bollywood actor and actress in the last 50 years. Miditech is producing the show for Sony and it is slotted at 8 pm every Saturday.
The four-part series will feature successful filmstars in Bollywood between 1954 and 2004. Each week the audience will vote for their favourite actor and actress from each decade via SMS. Nikhil Alva, CEO, Miditech, said, "The response to the first two episodes has been quite good with the show getting a TRP of above 2 on a Saturday. Since Hindi movies are integral to Indian audiences we knew a show like this would connect well with them."
After four weeks there will be four male and four female nominees out of which the viewers will choose their favourite actor and actress. The award for the best actor and best actress in the last five decades will be given away at the Filmfare Awards ceremony.
