Ormax said that at a week 1 stage, these numbers are better when compared to some of the recent non-fiction launches, including DID L’il Masters (Zee TV), Khatron Ke Khiladi 3 (Colors) and Master Chef India (Star Plus).

Ormax Media CEO Shailesh Kapoor said, “Madhuri Dixit’s presence has definitely worked for the campaign. From our Bollywood work, we know that she is at No. 7 in the list of most popular actresses in India even today, despite no films in the last 3-4 years. In fact, she is higher than Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu and Vidya Balan on popularity. Also, the contestants on the show this season are a good mix of strong faces, especially from television. Most of them have not been on reality shows before, giving Jhalak... a freshness it will definitely benefit from.”
Showbuzz is the awareness tracking research conducted in six markets – Mumbai, Delhi, Ahmedabad, Lucknow, Indore and Jalandhar. More than 600 people in the 15-44 years, SEC ABC segments were interviewed for the research.
