For those who seem to have forgotten, our stars are human too. And, like celebrities around the world, Bollywood biggies also have issues that need to be discussed and addressed. The only thing missing, until now, was a suitable platform.
Zoom, India’s premiere glamour and entertainment channel is, therefore, proud to announce a unique talk show, Inside Bollywood with Rohit Roy. What it promises to address are issues that affect celebrities and the fraternity. Hosted by Rohit Roy, the theme-based programme will feature two celebrity guests who will discuss, debate and thrash out issues relevant to today’s Bollywood. The first episode airs this Saturday, April 26, at 8:00 pm. Tune in for a conversation between charming Rohit and his first set of guests – filmmakers Mahesh Bhatt and Pooja Bhatt.
The brutally frank father-daughter duo speak about a little-discussed aspect of life in Bollywood -addiction – be it alcohol, drug, even work-related. They also share, with characteristic honesty, their struggle with Mahesh Bhatt’s addiction and the devastating effects it has had on their family.
In every one hour episode, Rohit Roy will woo viewers with a complete infotainment package. His show will cover matters and incidents of immediate concern to Bollywood celebrities, from the grass-root level to social, political, economic, moral and psychological issues. Each episode will be divided into five segments, followed by a debate based on celebrity observations and their experiences. After viewers offer their opinion, the final verdict on each topic will be the most entertaining part of the show.
The 13-episode series will feature Bollywood celebrities like Sanjay Dutt and Suniel Shetty discussing the life of ‘destiny’s child’ Sanjay Dutt; Naseeruddin Shah and Tabu debating whether professional training is a prerequisite for success as an actor; and Nagesh Kukunoor and Sharmila Tagore talking about the controversial issue of censorship in Bollywood. And that’s just the tip of this iceberg.
Catch the first episode of Inside Bollywood with Rohit Roy, a complete infotainment series, on Saturday April 26, 2008 at 8.00 pm and from May 4, 2008 on every Sunday at 8.00 pm, only on Zoom!
