With most of its fiction shows putting up a great show on TRP charts, ZEE TV is now gearing up to strengthen its position in the non-fiction space. The channel recently launched the next season of its immensely popular dance reality show, Dance India Dance. Judged by Kareena Kapoor Khan, Bosco Martis and Raftaar, DID 7 has opened to good numbers on the rating chart. And now we hear that ZEE TV is planning to launch a new game show, tentatively titled Banda Bada Filmy Hai.

Though the channel is keeping every detail related to the forthcoming show under wraps, we hear from some sources that Banda Bada Filmy Hai is a Bollywood quiz show where the contestants will participate in quizzes and the biggest Bollywood buff will be crowned the winner of the series.
