Besides, events like the IIFA Awards 2005, which was held in Amsterdam, and the STAR Screen Awards will be also showcased as part of the Super Six line-up. The series will be on till the second week of January 2006.

Actor Rajpal Yadav has been roped in to feature in a promotional campaign for the Super Six series. Yadav, who stars in the campaign as an astrologer – Jyotishi Bhagwan Bharose Futurewale Baba – gives interesting tit-bits about the movies / events, and analyse them in a hilarious astrological fashion.
