It seems as if the small screen is getting bigger by the day. After game shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati, Kya Aap Paanchvi Paas Hai, Dus Ka Dum, Sawaal Dus Karod Ka, Jeeto Chappad Phad Ke, there is one more show in the wings that will — if all goes according to plan — rope in a big B-town star. For, if sources are to be believed, either Hrithik Roshan or Aamir Khan will host this new game show.
It is reliably learnt that even Amitabh Bachchan has been approached by the production house for the Hindi version of the American game show 1 Vs 100. The superstar, who celebrated his birthday on Saturday, has earlier done stints on television as the host in Kaun Banega Crorepati, but for Aamir and Hrithik this — if there are no hiccups on the way — will be their first experience on television as the host.
A source from the production team says, “For a game show, Big B would always be a big draw due to his great track record on KBC. He delivered great TRPs even in the second season. But as everyone knows, Amitabh is busy with a lot of films, so it might be difficult to get him on board due to date problems. Hence, the production house has also approached other big film stars which include names like Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan.”
The production company is optimistic that one of the three names will definitely work out as each of the stars has agreed to seriously consider the offer.
However, if by any chance these names don’t sign on, there is a back up plan. Successful talk show host and filmmaker Karan Johar is the fourth choice.
Who will be the final choice? Only time will tell.
