Comic actor and Bollywood director Sajid Khan will now be seen cracking jokes while chatting with Bollywood celebrities on his new talk show ‘Sajid’s Superstars’.
Sajid will use humour to dig out the deepest of secrets from the stars, including Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Balan, Ritiesh Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi, Shahid Kapur and Ranbir Kapoor.
‘I always wanted to do my own chat show on television. It is totally a fun Bollywood show, keeping the respect for each of my guests intact. They are all my friends and guests, so I feel they should be respected.
‘But I assure you that it will have lots of masti (fun) and mazza (frolic),’ Sajid told IANS.
Sajid was here for the launch of the new entertainment channel Colors on which the hour-long show would be aired every Saturday, starting July 26.
The show is well segmented, says Sajid. ‘Even if you want to go to the loo in between the show, you won’t,’ he quipped.
Sajid added: ‘My show will have gossip and controversy and all from the horse’s mouth. The sort of talk that will happen on the show will not be available on any magazine or TV show.’
‘We will have stand-up comedy and also analyse the worst and best scenes of the actors who will come on the show. I believe this would be the most popular show of 2008,’ he maintained.
But considering that ‘Sajid’s Superstars’ will have the biggest of Bollywood names gracing it, comparisons with director Karan Johar’s popular talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’ are inevitable.
Sajid agreed but went on to explain: ‘Each chat show has its own plus point. Karan undoubtedly did a fabulous job in ‘Koffee..’, but it was in English and so it catered to a niche market.
‘My show is in Hindi and I hope it does well and people enjoy it.’
