Production giant, Endemol is considering a Hindi version of the popular international format ‘Money Drop’.
Endemol is known for churning out superhit formats like ‘Bigg Boss’, ‘Fear Factor۪, Deal or No Deal۪ and is already seeing success with the South Indian ‘Money Drop’ being shown on the Sun Network.
Popularly known as Kaiyil Ori Kodi Are You Ready?۪ in Tamil, Ko Aante Koti Me Sontham Cheskondi۪ in Telegu, Kayyalli Koti Haelbittu Hodeeri۪ in Kannada and Kaiyil Ori Kodi Are You Ready? in Malayalam, Money Drop۪ is a nerve wracking game show that challenges the participants۪ presence of mind. Backed by a unique mechanism that can multiply winnings to a life changing amount, this game show is a rollercoaster ride of emotions. One wrong move and the money can drop to practically nothing.
Deepak Dhar, CEO, Endemol India, said, I۪m ecstatic that the Indian market has accepted this global gaming phenomenon with open arms. The show is running successfully on Sun Network in four languages Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam and Kannada. With 100+ episodes being successfully completed, we are sure that this high stake money game show will be a hit in the Hindi reality show market as well.
K Vijaykumar, Managing Director, Sun Network, said, Our partnership with Endemol is proving very successful and we are thrilled to complete 150+ episodes of The Million Dollar Money Drop۪. With its vast catalogue of entertainment hits, it is indeed a pleasure to be associated with this creative production company and we look forward to them bringing more of such innovative shows to the Sun Network viewers.
The show is aired in the UK on Channel 4 and in the USA on Fox Network. It has been sold to 38 countries in total.
