dishoomforblog.jpg26 million viewers tuned in to watch the action movie 'Dishoom' which aired on Star Gold from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. The premiere movie telecast was the highest watched show for the entire day across the Hindi movies genre. Interestingly, significant portions of this audience also watched other Hindi action movies broadcast on the same day. Do these audiences make up a segment of Hindi action movie enthusiasts?

The movie telecast witnessed a highly consistent viewership reaching a peak between 2:30 PM and 3:00 PM with 13.7 million viewers. The viewership dropped drastically in the last half hour, hitting 3.4 million viewers.
