Bollywood's Badshah Shah Rukh Khan is all set to host the Indian version of TED Talks titled as ‘TED Talks India Nayi Soch’. The promos of the show are already out and the show will go on air from next week. SRK took to Twitter to share the latest promo on Sunday.
TED Talks will be aired nationwide from December 10, every Sunday at 7 pm. Earlier, the makers wanted to air it in the slot belonging to Mr perfectionist Aamir Khan’s flagship show Satyamev Jayate. A source told in an interview to DNA, “Earlier, they were looking at airing it in the same slot that Aamir Khan’s show Satyamev Jayate used to air, but later decided against it. Now, it will be in the evening. Initially, only seven episodes have been locked. If the response to the show is good, they are planning to shoot a couple of episodes more. That’s because the concept is completely new to the Indian audience and they have to gauge how it will be received. In case the response is not very overwhelming, they will air only seven episodes and probably come back with a season 2 later.”
Talking about his films, Shah Rukh Khan was seen in ‘Raees’ and ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ this year. Currently, he is shooting for Aanand L Rai’s next where he plays a dwarf. The upcoming yet-to-be-titled movie also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.
According to media reports, earlier, the film was titled as ‘Katrina Meri Jaan’. However, Katrina recently revealed in a recent interview with DNA that the title has been changed and it’s now a totally different film altogether. The actress said, “It (the film) wasn’t about the space or the VFX. Honestly, Aanand sir has been discussing this film with me for the last two years. It was originally titled ‘Katrina Meri Jaan’, which is probably why people keep asking me if I’m playing myself in the film.”
“But it’s a very different film now since there have been a lot of changes in it. Aanand sir is one of the finest directors we have and I believe in him. He really pushed me and fought for it. So I felt that if someone’s fighting so much for it and has that much belief, then let’s see where we go together, ” the actress added.
