Star News lines up year-end bonanza

Amongst the shows to watch out for are Deewar – featuring the most prominent relationship fallouts of 2004; Kiski Khuli Pol and Kiski Khulegi Pol – featuring the best of the trendsetting Pol Khol; Telang ki Tasveer – notable events of 2004 literally drawn out in cartoons; and a unique concept in the form of a nationwide viewer poll titled Zero No 1.     

The year end specials on Star News will offer a special perspective on the year that was, while also offering a prediction on the year that will be. To round it off, viewers will also have their own say in crowning the 'unfortunate' misses of this year.

Deewar: The year 2004 witnessed more than its fair share of relationship fallouts in politics, business, sports and entertainment. Instance being the Gandhi-Bachchan estrangement and the even now unfolding saga of the Ambani brothers. Deewar, will be aired from 27 - 31 December at 8.30 pm and will feature some of the most significant and high profile fallouts that kept the nation engaged in 2004.

Kiski Khuli Pol and Kiski Khulegi Pol: This show is based on the popular satirical show hosted by Shekhar Suman - Pol Khol. Kiski Khuli Pol, will be a one-hour special and will be aired on 1 January, 2005 at 10 pm and will present the best of Pol Khol 2004. Meanwhile, Kiski Khulegi Pol will look forward at 2005 and showcase the events most likely to feature in Pol Khol. This will air on 2 January, 2005 at 10 pm.

Telang Ki Tasveer: Touted as an 'out-of-the-box' concept, this show will feature notable events of 2004 'drawn out' in the form of cartoons by cartoonist Sudhir Telang and will air as special capsules within Star Savera and Desh Videsh on 31 December.

Zero No. 1: Star News will seek the people’s vote to crown this year’s biggest misses on Zero No. 1, which is a unique show that will feature the year's biggest 'would-be hits who missed' from different spheres. The viewers can cast their votes on personalities from different fields whose fortunes nose-dived on the promise of a strong showing due to some unfortunate turn of events. This is an interactive exercise designed to voice the people’s view where the viewers will crown 2004’s Zero No. 1 and will be telecast from 20 - 31 December.
