Production companies understood the technical failure of the programs. This is the time when they realized that there was something much unique and different that the public demands. The era of reality shows came up then.  Every channel challenged each other to bring in the best of the reality into their channels. Some brought in musical shows like Sa Re Ga Ma, Indian Idol, Star voice ofIndia, while some came up with dance shows like Jhalak Dikhla Jaa, DID, Zara Nachke Dikha and many more as such. When the reality shows seemed to increase the channel TRPs, there was more way to it.

This is when shows like ShabaashIndia,India’s Got Talent, Entertainment ke liye kuch bhi karega and many more came up. Public loved and appreciated these shows too. Now, again the viewers needed change. It is the era of motivating and awaking people to fight against the wrong.
