This is solely done in order to give the contestants the actual feel of the real hardship one undergoes without getting the basic amenities to survive and that too in a forest.” He further said, “Star Jalsha has always offered unconventional and interesting shows and 1000 Ghanta is one such unique and clutter breaking initiative, that will make our viewers glued to their television screens with immense curiosity of what is going to happen next.”
