Of late the channel has not been getting enough attention from the television viewers despite the fact that it boasts of some serious controversial stuff with shows having the infamous Rakhi Sawant as the judge. Perhaps this is the reason as to why the channel organizers have decided to rope in Shah Rukh Khan as the brand ambassador of their latest forthcoming show. The show as its setting will have none other than the landscape of the beautiful Argentinian lands. There have been quite some reality shows which had the African lands and even Brazil as the backdrop, but Argentina will be seen for the first time in “Zor ka Jhatka“.
