Ary digital has been practicing social distancing in their shows including Jeeto Pakistan, which was specifically an audience-oriented show. Jeeto Pakistan has been airing this Ramzan without an audience but with a twist. The show airs under the name of “Jeeto Pakistan League” with 5 teams representing 5 cities along with a celebrity captain. The show was as interesting as it was with a show full of audience.
The show came up with this unique concept and gained attention of viewers. Karachi Lions are represented by Humayun saeed. Adnan Siddiqui is captain of Lahore falcons. Shaista Lodhi heads Peshawar Stallions, Islamabad Dragons plays under lead of Sana Javed, whereas Quetta Knights is lead by Sarfaraz Ahmed. So the game gives you a reminder of PSL as well and reminds of the unfinished event.
During this era of COVID-19, the show executed very responsibly. There were handsanitizers placed at every desk. The artists were seen sanitizing their hands often. The contestants were wearing gloves and overall protectors.
In first episode Islamabad’s team won under Sana Javed lead against Quetta under Sarfaraz supervision. It was an interesting game as captains were trying to confuse and help out other teams.
However guest appearances were made my Sohai Ali Abro, Bilal Abbas Khan, Zara Noor Abbas, Asad Siddiqui and our beloved little Ahmed Shah.
The show proved that social distancing is although difficult to follow but it is not impossible.
