Shahrukh Khan faced a tough time from Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone starrer Bajirao Mastani. His last year’s release Dilwale which was pitted against Ranveer starrer could not compete against Ranveer starrer. But finally, SRK has beaten Bajirao Mastani on its TV premiere as he was seen on The Kapil Sharma Show at the same date and time.
Now all eyes were on TRP ratings as the results for the biggest battle of TRPs were to be announced. The moment finally arrived and looks like ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ has emerged the winner in this TRP war. According to reports in Times of India, while TKSS got a TRP of 3.0 in the urban sector and 2.8 in the rural, taking it to 5.8 in total, Bajirao Mastani, on the other hand, got a TRP of 2.4 in the urban sector. The rural ratings are yet to be out. Not only this, as per reports, ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ has also entered the Top 5 list in its opening week with 8943 Impressions.
It was an interesting decision from Colors TV to release Bajirao Mastani on the same date. Despite facing stiff competition from last year’s award-winning film Bajirao Mastani’s premiere on TV, The Kapil Sharma Show managed to garner good numbers.
