'Krisshna Arjun' resorts to contests & foreign locales to garner high TRPs

MUMBAI: Looks like television channels now have to resort to shooting in foreign locales and weave various contests around their serials to attract viewership and acquire high ratings. After all how long can the same formula work day in and day out? Kyunki Saas... went to Australia, now it's time for Krisshna Arjun to go to Singapore.


Star Plus in association with the Singapore Tourism Board takes the detective duo Krisshna Arjun to Singapore to solve yet another mystery.

This is the first time that the show is shooting overseas with the entire cast and crew. The series promises to be action packed with loads of excitement and thrilling chases set against the backdrop of the magnificent city.

Another thing that promises viewer interactivity and lures them is the contest that is the initiative of Star Plus and Singapore Roars. Participants should watch the episode aired on 1 December at 8.00 pm and answer the question asked during the telecast. Viewers can send an SMS to 7827 or dial in and give the answers. Alternatively, viewers can also log on to www.indya.com or mail their answers to the Star office. The winners will win a trip for two to Singapore.

Hussain who plays the character of detective Arjun said, "The series promises to be exciting as there is a very different feeling to the show. The entire story is based in Singapore and also has people from there as a part of the serial. There is a lot of 'mirch masala' to the whole thing. Also there is a contest around the serial which will definitely increase viewership."

Shraddha Nigam portraying Krisshna's character said, "The Singapore series will be different in terms of the location, the people and the adventure that revolves around the case." Speaking about the location shift in the series Nigam said, "After a while any serial tends to stabilise. So there should be a constant effort to introduce new elements and give a serial a whole new flavour."

The Singapore series revolves around the search for the missing diamond, which is the pride of the nation and the most prized possession of the Nawaab Asad ud Daulah of Lucknow. The diamond, Noor-e-Nazar, has been stolen from an international convention held in Singapore. The detective twosome reach Singapore and in a wild chase for the diamond go to the impressive Jurong Bird park.

Amidst the scenic beauty, Krisshna Arjun venture on their nobel quest. In comes the sight seeing galore, Sentosa Island Resorts, historic Fort Siloso, the 83,850 square metre Suntee City Mall, and even the Under Water World, a perfect showcase of tourism Singapore.

Let's see if this sight seeing gives the Remington Steele inspired detective caper the much needed boost.
