AXN to showcase biggest ground event Wednesday

MUMBAI: The action-oriented AXN is constantly looking

to top off whatever it has done in the past. This year

it managed to achieve that with shows like 24.

Now it will air what is so far its biggest on-ground initiative in India from Wednesday.

Extreme Dhamaka will air every Wednesday at 9 pm with

repeats on Thursday at 1 pm and Sunday at 9 am and 8


As reported earlier by this show is an extended version of the reality themed Who Dares Wins.

Extreme Dhamaka had toured six cities and the 13- episode programme will showcase highlights from each venue.

Addressing a media briefing earlier this evening the broadcaster's marketing vice-president Gregory Ho said, "This has been a big investment for us. With the same amount of money we could have bought two to three quality series from the US and aired it. We, however, felt that the effort taken was worth it and the show is way of

saying a big thank you to our viewers."

Ho said, "We finished principal photography six weeks ago and so it has been a hectic time for us. What was unique is that everything from conceptualisation to post production

was done here. Our immense confidence in the Indian

industry has been justified."

The show will be hosted by the hosts of Who dares Wins

Mike Whitney and Tania Zaetta along with the winners

of AXN's Hot 'n' Wild Deepica Sarma and Salil


Sarma said, " Our job looks glamorous but on the surface of it was 15 hours of daily hard work. The result was that I came out feeling real. This is not a fantasy and we are not selling dreams. These are real people. The road response especially in Chandigarh was fantastic."

One of the highlights was a main dare performed in Mumbai at midnight. Apparently, it had rained that day and so putting together a stunt involving fire was made all the more difficult. This involved a man riding a motorcycle through a burning bus. The show also examines the various security measures that are put into place like the protective padding.
