I’m Paanchvi fail- Shahrukh Khan
Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan said on Friday that he took the blame for dipping TRPs of his television show ‘Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain’, as he was the biggest attraction on it and did not become attractive enough to get the desired eye balls!!
"Even in my films, it is said that it will get a good opening because I am there. If I consider the same yardstick, a star of my caliber should have brought enough audiences before the television set. If there is no opening and lack of appeal for the show despite my presence, then I think I am responsible. But, I do my best whatever I can do creatively," Shahrukh Khan said to the journalists.
Shahrukh added "May be the format was not appealing, but we were blinded by the original format ('Are you smarter than A fifth grader')"
"There are no options for a question on this show. This brings loneliness where as giving options sees involvement of more than one person. Some have not liked that the contestant at the time of dropping out of the contest, being asked to say that "Hum paanchvi pass se tez nahi hain" (I am not smarter than a fifth grader).
The actor wondered why should there be a problem with the statement because it is not meant to show disrespect. He also said "Grown-ups forget that it is okay not to know everything. They don't realize the beauty of saying I don't know something".
