Sach Ka Saamna is back!

By Hindustan Times

Despite its second season opening to poor ratings, TV show Sach Ka Saamna will return for a third innings on March 18, this time in the late night slot. Hosted by actor Rajeev Khandelwal, the producers of the desi version of American game show The Moment Of Truth aim to bring back some of the edgy material that made the first season a hit with the audience.

Season three, which will air on the channel Life OK, will comprise 36 episodes, featuring celebrity participants Yuvraaj Parashar, Nigaar Khan and Ali Merchant among others.

Producer Siddhartha Basu clarifies reports that the new series is a compilation of leftover episodes from season two, saying, “That season was titled Bhrashtachar Ke Khilaf Awaaz because the episodes dealt with exposing corruption, which mirrored the mood of the people at that time.” He adds that the upcoming series will return to its original format, saying, “It will explore the personal and psychological space of the contestants.”

The third season deals with extramarital affairs, illegitimate children and staged weddings. Ask Ajit Thakur, general manager, Life OK, whether they’re focusing on sex as a theme this time around, and he says, “We are returning to our original format, where the contestant courageously reveals details of his life. The show is about honesty, and how it pays — contestants can repair their mistakes and make a new start.”

He insists that even their celebrity guests are selected after a screening process, adding, “The show is not about celebrities, but about individuals. Even our famous participants go through the same rigours as the others.”

Basu reiterates that the on-screen drama is not scripted, saying, “The show will be about real people revealing their issues. Nothing has been scripted, which many so-called reality shows tend to do. It is very important for us to be authentic.”
