Bid a joyous adieu to the year 2006 with STAR News

MUMBAI: The year 2006 is coming to an end and its time to pop open the bubbly and celebrate, its time to make new resolutions and drop old ones, its time to welcome a new year with pomp and party.

But this is also the time to 'retrospect', to think of the year gone by - muse over the moments that made this year memorable. Keeping this spirit in mind, STAR News ushers in the New Year with a slew of programming that will wrap up the year gone by in 'delectable bites'.

The channel has planned a series of specials that will capture, in the most interesting and unique format, all that made news in 2006 across genres like sports, politics, entertainment, crime, films, and many more.

STAR News has always successfully packed in variety, style and novelty with a dash of wit and 'tongue-in-cheek' humour in its year-end specials and this year is certainly no exception.

Starting from the last week of December, the channel will feature tailor-made specials that will effectively encapsulate the year 2006, bringing to the discerning viewers the best and the worst from all facets of the society.

Below is a brief on what you can expect on STAR News capping off an eventful 2006:

Saal Dhamaal

Zero No.1

[Dec 25 - 31; 10.30 - 11.00 pm]

This segment will aim to determine the 'Zeros' of 2006, i.e. all people who have been in the news for the wrong reasons. People's responses will be gauged through SMS polls. Each day, there will be a poll on one of the following categories: cricket, politics, entertainment, convicts, and even spoilt brats. Thereafter, there will be a SMS poll conducted to adjudge winners of each category and also to adjudge a sole winner among all categories. This winner will be crowned zero number one of the year.

Countdown Special

[Dec 31; 11.00pm - Midnight]

As the name suggests this special would be a countdown to the New Year and would capture the happening parties that are being hosted around the country, other outdoor festivities and astrological predictions of the progression of the year 2007.

Kiski Khulegi Pol

[Dec 30 & 31; 8.30 - 9.00 pm]

This special programme will aim to identify people from various fields like politics, sports, entertainment, etc. who are most likely to come under the Pol Khol scanner in the upcoming New Year.

Dekhoge To Hasoge

[Dec 31; 1.00 - 2.00 pm]

A one-hour special by the wacky and crazy comedian Suresh Menon, spoofing the memorable moments of 2006…

So, as we prepare to usher in another year of well being, success and fulfillment, STAR News bids adieu to the year 2006 and offers a well-deserved tribute to the year gone by. Watch the Year-End Specials, starting December 25th 2006, only on STAR News.
