Jaya TV’s game show ‘Jackpot’ completes the double century mark

Jaya TV’s popular game show ‘Jackpot’, sponsored by Arokya Milk, completed 200 episodes on July 9. The game show has been running non-stop for four years.

K P Sunil of Tellyzoom, producer of ‘Arokya Milk Jackpot’, spelt out the success mantra of the programme as “four years, 200 episodes, one producer, one sponsor and one anchor, coupled with unstinted cooperation by the crew”.

‘Jackpot’ had won the prestigious RAPA Award in 2005 for being the best game show in a regional language. Inspired by Zee TV’s ‘Family Fortunes’, this Tellyzoom production is still going strong, even as the original lasted for only a year.

‘Jackpot’ is anchored by popular Tamil actress Khushboo and is Jaya TV’s highest rated programme. The channel sees it as one the most enduring knowledge-based game shows on air, which offers wholesome family infotainment.

Sunil explained that the show had been made keeping in mind the entire family, and hence, the questions were meticulously picked out for the larger benefit of all.

Anchor Khushboo, too, has a hand in making ‘Jackpot’ popular, with her much talked about attires in the show, her sprightly disposition and inimitable style.

The 200th episode of Arokya Milk ‘Jackpot’ saw a colourful contest between two teams of TV artistes that was a laugh-riot.
