Aamir Khan is the latest Bollywood superstar to debut on the small screen as a talk show host. Aamir has joined broadcast major Star India to anchor a show based on social issues, which will go on air next year.
“Over the last few years, I have been approached for various TV shows, but the offers never excited me. However, this show will be a journey of discovery of change, of emotion and human story which touch and inspire our daily life,” Aamir said.
The show will be broadcast simultaneously in eight languages on Star Network channels– Star Plus, Star World, Star Majha, Star Jalsa and Asia net, among others.
Further details about the show were not disclosed.
“No Bollywood star has shown the ability to move the markets with experimentation as much as Aamir has done. Star India is doing a show with him to reinforce the same agenda of creativity and to come with something which is impactfull and engaging,” Star India CEO Udhay Shakar.
Prominent Bollywood figures like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan, Juhi Chawla, Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan have been associated with television in different roles.
