- Emotional Atyachaar 3 on UTV Bindaas: Ajay Devgan is making his debut with Emotional Atyachaar 3. Targeted to the young audience the show is about checking your partner loyalty with spy cams on National TV. Some may like the show but for me it is one of the worst show on the TV. Why? because I found it 99.99% scripted and it only contains sexual entertainment. No scene, no humor and above all always BEEP sound.
- Sach Ka Saamna 2 on Star Plus: The Indian edition of “the Moment of Truth” will start again. After its huge controversy in first session Rajeev Khandelwal is still ready to host the show. This time producers are making a 40 episode series. Prize money last time was 1 crore rupees and may be the same this time also.

Two other shows are also coming very soon. One is Desi Girl 2 on NDTV Imagine and another is Badmas Company on Colors. Juhi Chawla will host the show Badmas Company which would be similar to Anupam Kher hosted “Say Na Something To Anupam Uncle”.
