22 January,2015:Â Superstar Shah Rukh Khan returned to TV with a bang â€“ he will host â€œIndia Poochega â€“ Sabse Shaana Kaunâ€, a game show adapted from the â€œWhoâ€™s Asking?â€ international format.
The show will air on &TV, a new Hindi general entertainment channel launched by Zee Entertainment Enterprise Limited (ZEEL) Wednesday night here.
Looking his charming self, Shah Rukh Khan took mediapersons present at the launch through the showâ€™s format.
He said: â€œI like the question and answer format. I do that with my children and family. This show will deal with questions that have been asked by common man and will be answered by the common man himself to win the prize money.
â€œThe questions will be those which people think are easy to answer or sometimes donâ€™t even think about it. Many people have different questions to ask. I will just make sure the show has a lot of fun.â€
The 49-year-old, who sported a dapper, clean-shaven look in a formal blue suit, ensured the audience had a taste of the entertainment in store from the show, at the launch itself. His sense of humour and one-liners did the trick.
Shah Rukh even gave a glimpse into the showâ€™s format by playing it live with mediapersons.
â€œIndia Poochega â€“ Sabse Shaana Kaunâ€ is produced by Big Synergy and will be aired on &TV in March.
The 49-year-old, who started his showbiz career from TV itself â€” via fiction shows like â€˜Faujiâ€™ and â€˜Circusâ€™, has previously hosted reality shows like â€œKaun Banega Crorepatiâ€, â€œKya Aap Paanchvi Paas Se Tez Hainâ€ and â€œZor Ka Jhatkaâ€. He was also seen as a judge on â€œDil Se Naachein Indiawaaleâ€, which was brought to TV for the promotion of his film â€œHappy New Yearâ€ last year.
Asked how it feels to be back on TV after becoming the most loved Bollywood actor around the globe, SRK said: â€œThe television industry and film industry understand each other and they work in synergy. I started with TV, but I havenâ€™t given such a brilliant performance so far.
â€œSo, I would want to give back to TV. I feel this show will help me in achieving that.â€
He also feels that the only reason he has been away from TV for sometime is because he likes to work with those who are like family to him.
â€œI always wait for something like this. I am little spoilt as an actor and as a performer.
