Shah Rukh Khan is set to make his comeback on TV with a bang, with a kind of show that has never been seen before on the Indian Television. Shah Rukh Khan will be hosting TED Talks India, where eminent personalities will be taking the stage to share their inspirational stories and more. Rumours suggest SRK will be inviting the likes of Karan Johar, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Javed Akhtar and much more. The show was initially planned to go on air in October, however, there seem to be new developments on that front.
The Indian version of the show is reportedly pushed back to either mid-November or even December. The reason behind this is another clash between Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan. The two were set to clash at the box office last month, before SRK averted it. Seems like SRK is set to do the same again, as Akshay Kumar too is coming up with a show of his own, The Great Indian Laughter Challenge, where he will play a super judge. Even Farah Khan’s show Lip Sing Battle will be airing around then, which will feature top celebs. ALSO READ: Gauri Khan Shares A Nostalgic Picture With Shah Rukh Khan And It’s Definitely Frame Worthy
According to sources, the channel has invested heavily in the show, and want it to receive all the attention it possibly can. A source tells DNA, “Shah Rukh’s show is also slated for weekends, and they want a very good slot for it — either in the morning or evening. They are looking at building it up like Aamir Khan’s Satyamev Jayate, as Ted Talks is also very informative. They want to open it in a big way. Even SRK is not in a rush. His last few releases haven’t fared very well at the box office and he is very particular about his comeback show. So, they have decided to wait it out and take a call on it later.”
