There was a time when Ramadan transmissions on TV consisted of pre-recorded cooking shows , iftar transmissions , religious discussions and little else. Not to mention every channel had different ideas about the Ramadan transmission.
From the past few years we have seen a dramatic change in how things are done in Ramadan, and the TV industry has followed suit, it first started off with Dr Amir Liaqat’s Amaan Ramzan four years ago and since then this trend of airing a live transmission is Ramadan is flourishing every year.
The best part of this trend was the way every channel started catching up, and soon we had a very colorful competition going on, the audience loved the uniqueness of these transmissions where everything was live, it got easier for them to relate to the celebrities when they spent Sehri and aftaar with them, the live cooking shows, the interaction of onset viewers, and the gupshaps amongst the celebrities themselves was soon the daily dose of all viewers during Ramadan.
The distribution of gifts and games was another plus point and the viewers were enthralled by the thousands of Rupees worth of prizes that were distributed on a daily basis!
This season the competition amps up even more as almost all channels gather the best hosts, veterans and novices alike for their Ramadan transmissions.
After a rigorous selection process and breaking the hearts of many, these are the hosts that would be hosting the Ramadan transmissions on their respective channels!
