The show is an attempt make the confused electorate more aware
of the going ons in politics as well as its politicians. The show
promises to give a glimpse of what actually happens behind the wheeling,
dealing and posturing during the campaigning of political parties.
The programme will showcase a range of segments and Shekhar Suman's
sarcasm wit will be on full display as he lampoons the neta's, their
parties and their antics.
Shekhar will be on the move as well as in the studio, following
political rallies bringing in the true flavor and the lighter side
of the elections.
"Star News continues to innovate and create some of the best
programming and content in Indian News Television today and Poll
Khol is one of our key initiatives on that front" said
Star News President Ravina Raj Kohli. "We are happy to welcome
Shekhar Suman to the Star News family and look forward to some great
television with him", she added.
Speaking to indiantelevision.com, Shekhar Suman says "Archival
footage, documentary films, NG shots will be used to validate the
nuances of politicians as the show proceeds to unravel the best
kept secrets of the political world. Although the show is not meant
to be irreverent or in bad taste, but just an endeavor to paint
a clearer picture in the voters mind."
