Spread Happiness in the Race of TRPs – GKP

Ramadan is a month of blessings, and the TV channels are trying their best to spread blessings in terms of happiness by distributing giveaways, prizes, mega prizes such as motorcycles, cars, plots, houses, and so on, among audiences through very easy games, questions and activities.

Geo TV is one of the channel among those, and its game show “Geo Khelo Pakistan” is trying their best to not only capture the hearts of audience but also the viewers by spreading blessings as much as possible.

Geo Khelo Pakistan (GKP) is gaining popularity after each of its transmission. Because the show is being hosted by 2 living legends none other than Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar, both are very big names of Pakistan in terms of cricket.

The combination of both hosts Wasim and Shoaib is simply love. Because if Shoaib is energetic so the decent talk of Wasim made the show perfect.

On the 6th day of Geo TV’s game show GKP, Ushna Shah became the guest of the day. The charming and the multitalented actress with the combo of Wasim and Shoaib added more entertainment in the show.

The audience became crazy to find her among them, and she also helped so many participants in different activities to win prizes. There were so many games for youth, aunties, uncles, families, and couples. Drink for bike, Male in Saree, throw the ball, turn of fortune were the few games among many, while the lucky draw was being held again and again, so that the lucky winner could get so many prizes.

In the last segment namely “Dhak Dhak Crore” was the segment when not only the heartbeat of participants became fast but also the entire audience passing through the same phase. Afterward it was a game to win 1 crore rupees. But unfortunately not even a single participant could win 1 crore, but then they were offered to play card game so that they can win car, and yes this time they did it.

It’s not about Geo TV or other TV channels, it’s all about the feelings of public, who comes with so many hopes. And this kind of game shows should be appreciated instead of criticizing. In the era of hatred and jealousy, these are the only shows that are spreading happiness among public.

Here, I’m sharing few pictures from day 6 of GKP. All clicks have been officially captured by team Geo and GKP.
