Don't understand the TRP game: Amitabh Bachchan

The show however, evoked a lukewarm response from the audiences. "The work is over (on Yudh). I always feel an artiste is never satisfied with his work. I don't know how the business of TV works and don't understand TRPs at all," Bachchan told reporters, on the response to Yudh.

Amitabh Bachchan, who made his TV fiction debut with show Yudh recently, has said that he does not understand the business of small screen.



Bachchan's Yudh was one of the most awaited shows on the small screen and was launched amid much hype and fanfare.



The show however, evoked a lukewarm response from the audiences. "The work is over (on Yudh). I always feel an artiste is never satisfied with his work. I don't know how the business of TV works and don't understand TRPs at all," Bachchan told reporters, on the response to Yudh.

He said that with films, box office collection starts coming in by weekend but for TV there is no such parameter to gauge the response. "I just do my work. You all can let me know how it has done (show Yudh)," he said at the launch of the music director Shekhar Ravjiani's new album Hanuman Chalisa.

The 20-episode show, a psychological thriller series is directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, went on-air from July 14 and also stars Sarika, Zakir Hussain, Mona Wasu, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Kay Kay Menon.



At the launch of the album, Shekhar said, "I am honoured that Mr Bachchan has taken time out of his very busy schedule to make this occasion truly special. If my rendition of the Hanuman Chalisa can give people a sense of peace and calmness, it would make me happy." This is Shekhar's fourth single album, after three


successful singles, Saazni, Saavli in Marathi, and Butterfly in Telugu.
