The new season of the iconic show will bring a mix of satire and light-hearted comedy
Noida, 20th March 2021: As the preparation for the upcoming Assembly Elections in four poll-bound states and one Union territory goes in full swing, ABP News is sparing no effort to ensure that the viewers get top-notch coverage on all political affairs of the country, in the most riveting way. By the same token, the channel is commencing yet another exciting season of its iconic show ‘Poll Khol’. Hosted by veteran Bollywood actor, Mr. Shekhar Suman, Poll Khol is a satirical show which delves into the current state of political affairs of the country.
Since its inception in 2004, ‘Poll Khol’ has established itself as an outstanding election season property with a ‘no holds barred, light-hearted approach’ to Indian politics. While the show is extremely frolicsome in nature, its unfailing flair for satire and startling honesty differentiates it from other shows with a similar format.
What’s interesting is that, the show features a funny and lovable sidekick ‘Bandaru’, whose interaction and ensuing banter with the host gives it a quirky touch, making it a show loved by audiences of all ages.
In the brand new season, Mr. Shekhar Suman will bring out the comical aspects of the so called ‘serious political situations’ through his wit and jocularity. Mr. Suman, who has been hosting the show since the past 16 years, will provide a hard-hitting take on the key issues of the country’s political affairs in a special way.
The new season of ‘Poll Khol’ will have periodically refreshed content featuring trending political topics/issues of the week. It will be airing as a weekly show from today, i.e. 20th March 2021 at 10:30 PM. Moreover, as West Bengal assembly elections come near, the show will turn into a regular weekday show (Mon-Fri) for approx. 3 weeks, to match the intensity of the political battleground of West Bengal. Through this new season, ABP News intends to make its election coverage even more captivating for its viewers.
On this unique offering, Mr. Avinash Pandey, CEO, ABP Network said, “At ABP News, we strive to inspire, enlighten, and engage our viewers through new concepts and unique shows.
