Fear Factor comes to India

March 07, 2006 20:01 IST

Sony Entertainment Television has launched two new shows, the desi version of Fear Factor and a show called Kandy Floss, both of which will start from March 10.

At the launch, which also announced the changed timings of two other shows Deal Ya No Deal and CID, the organisers put up a live version of sorts for each programme.

For Fear Factor, a young man gulped down cookies filled with worms.

For Deal Ya No Deal (which will now be telecast at 8 pm on Fridays), Divya Palat hosted a Rs 1,000 prize money event -- the original anchor Mandira Bedi being unwell. The CID team enacted a short play about a murder.

Archana Puran Singh explained what Kandy Floss is about -- a fun show about gossip and controversies in the television industry. Singh will host the show, and it will feature television stars as themselves.

Fear Factor -- which has been shot in Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia -- will be hosted by Mukul Dev, and the contestants will range from television actors to ordinary people. Some of the actors to be featured are Mandira Bedi, Achint Kaur, Rohit Roy, Vikas Bhalla, Chetan Hansraj and Ameen Sreen. Each episode's winner will take home Rs 1 million. It will be aired at 9 pm every Friday.

CID will be telecast at 10 pm on Fridays, followed by Kandy Floss at 11 pm.
