SRK fans in the house, got some scoop for ya’ll to rejoice!
While most of you that the news about King Khan’s much talked about show ‘TED Talks: Nayi Soch’ is indeed true, the shooting of the project is now coming about full-swing. According to the reports, the show would be aired on Star Plus and will have 14 episodes. Speakers from different parts of the world will be featured. The show was to telecast in September but that ain’t happening for sure.
The show will follow the signature TED format of prominent speakers articulating their opinion in an 18-minute talk in front of a live audience.
Coming to the big news! We found out what the shows guests list looks like and it made us go OMG! Want to know?
1) Oprah Winfrey.
Yeshhhh! The ‘Queen of all media’ is rumoured to make an appearance on the show. Oprah visited India five years ago to attend a party where she was the guest of honor. SRK too attended the bash along with other B-Town peeps. The two connected then and now he is keen on changing this friendship into commercial rishtedaari! Since the show is adapted from the international format, the makers have approached her.
2) Sundar Pichai.
The 45 YO bossman of Google Inc. who is otherwise shy but drew publicity for firing a Google employee who wrote a ten-page manifesto criticizing the company's diversity policies is going to be a part of the show. He has already shot for an episode of the show. However, he did not come down to India for the shoot. An interactive session was recorded virtually with SRK.
3) Karan Johar.
King Khan’s bestie and buddy and the new daddy, is the first guest to make it on the show. Their “just cannot die” friendship has been visible through many films and now will be spotted on small screen as well.
4) Javed Akhtar.
Legendary lyricist, poet and writer, Javed sahib will also be shooting for one of the episodes of TED Talks: Nayi Soch. The makers are anticipating this one to be a hit given for the kind of opinion he has shared on the forum.
5) Mithali Raj.
Mithali Dorai Raj, the cricketer who made every Indian, especially woman, proud will be contributing to the show. Raj will talk about her journey as a cricketer and share her insights on the same.
6) Ekta Kapoor.
