Zee’s new gameshow ‘Baazi Zee ki’ put on hold

Zee has put on hold its new gameshow Baazi Zee Ki. Zee has invested around Rs 90 lakhs on this game show, which was meant to replace the ill-fated Sawal Dus Crore Ka. Zee Network broadcasting chief executive officer, Sandeep Goyal is expected to make a final call on the show by early July.

Mr. Ashutosh Rana, the anchor for the new show, Baazi Kiski, has been paid Rs 3 lakhs per episode. Unlike Anupam Kher and Manisha Koirala, Zee has signed an episodic contract with Mr Rana. Zee has already shot 13 episodes of the game show in Mumbai’s Famous Studio. The shooting took place in April.

According to the sources the game show is on hold. It is too premature to comment on whether Zee will be scrapping the show or deciding on when and at what time to slot it. The company will announce the decision after some time.

The proposed game show will give away prizes including a car to the winner. Two three-member teams of male and female contestants will be in the hot seat.

In the first two rounds, each member of the team will be asked a question. For the team to win a prize, all the members will have to come out with the right answer to the three different questions. The winners will be given mobile phones and television sets.

The Challenger round will involve a cash prize of Rs 11,000. The team on which the light stops will invite a member of the opposite group.

The person who presses the buzzer first will be given an opportunity to answer the question. If the answer is right, the contestant will be awarded Rs 11,000. In case of a wrong answer, the contestant will be removed from the competition.

The next stage will have two rounds, similar to the start of the game. Prizes like refrigerators will be up for grabs.

The final ‘Challenger’ round will have one contestant. If the participant gives the right answer, the prize will be a car. But in case of a wrong reply, the contestant will lose everything won till then.

The participant, however, has the option to withdraw from the game and take away the prizes won in earlier rounds.
