After Rakhi Ka Swayamvar and Rahul Dulhaniya Le Jayega, it's our favorite Bitiya Ratan Rajput to look for her suitor on National Television with Imagine TV's Swayamvar Part 3, titled 'Ratan Ka Rishta'..
Accepting the same, Nikhil Madhok, Senior Director, Marketing and Communications, Imagine told us "On the very first day, we received more than 500 calls within half an hour for Ratan Ka Rishta. The number of calls went on increasing, and by 31st of December we had received approximately 10,000 calls and proposals. If we have to give you an approximate scenario till date, the number has crossed over 40,000".
Ratan told us that she will have a tough time going thro all the proposals and short listing the best. "I will surely be helped by my family to short list the names. We will arrive at the actual number of 16 grooms from a certain number of entries", says Ratan.
Nikhil Madhok too echoed the same saying, "It very difficult for Ratan to shortlist these many entries. But the first step would be for us to short list the grooms based on the guidelines that Ratan has given us".
Elaborating on the method of short listing, Nikhil states, "We will be bringing down the huge tally to about 5000 contestants. Ratan will come in at this stage and will have a chat with them, but this might not be a personal talk. She will short list about 200 contestants, with whom Ratan will have a personal talk time. From this, she will have to pick her final 16".
Well, the ball we can say is now in Ratan's court to choose the best of the best suitors... We can only wish her all the very best!!
