Raavan, Hindi version on television

Mani Ratnams over hyped Raavan in Hindi is going to have its television premiere, 44 days after its world release! Raavan featuring Abhishek Bachchan, Vikram and Aishwarya Rai, will have its world television premier this Sunday, August 1 at 8 pm on Colors. The film which had opened on June 18 is one of the fastest Hindi films to hit the small screen under 50 days of its theatrical release. According to television industry sources, normally a very big Hindi film is shown on television only after 100 days of its theatrical release. But Raavan turned out to be such a colossal flop, that the producers and the channel which had the satellite rights realized that its futile to delay the television premiere. Remember last Sunday (July 25) Sony created history when it telecast Aamir Khan�s Raju Hirani directed mega blockbuster 3 Idiots, 213 days after its theatrical release. The film garnered a television rating point (TRP) of 5.0 in its debut on small screen. It is the highest ever TRP for any feature film on television in India.
