What do you think about Amitabh Bachchan?
Har Shaak….brings out the theme of politics in our nation today – how certain politicians make promises and never deliver. It is a political satire and the first of its kind on the channel. Ishtiyak hopes that through the show, he receives more recognition on the small screen.
