Ram Kapoor will soon be seen on Indian television, after a long time, with a one-of-a-kind show, Zindagi Ke Crossroads, on Sony TV. The show will bring forth relatable life-changing stories that are inspired from real life and the studio audience will be given ther opportunity to pitch in and help the person in question make the decision after a thorough discussion with Ram Kapoor. It is touted to be a dining table conversation starter and is all set to launch on June 6. It will be showcased from Wednesday to Friday at 8: 30 pm.
Ram’s show will follow Salman Khan‘s much awaited Dus Ka Dum 3 that will air on Monday and Tuesday. This is a very smart move on the part of the channel which has kept quite an entertaining week planned for viewers with two days blocked for their favourite Bollywood superstar and three days incorporating Ram’s show. When the Bade Achhe Lagte Hai star was compared to Salman Khan, he quickly said, “Before I compare myself to Salman, I think I will just shoot myself (laughs), but honestly, it’s not even crossed my mind. In all the roles that I’ve done till date, I’ve made my audiences laugh, cry and smile; this is the first time that I get audiences to think and converse. This show is bigger than anyone of us. While I would refrain from giving opinions, I will do get the people to share their views openly.”
When asked if he prefers acting over anchoring he told the media that he prefers the former obviously but loves anchoring as well as it is the time when he can be him and not try and portray another character, the prospect of which truly excites him. Speaking about his strength and weaknesses as an anchor he said, “I like being spontaneous. I don’t follow any scripts too much and just go with the flow. I think that’s my strength because an anchor should be spontaneous and build that connect with the viewers. My weakness is that I don’t have a command on the language like Amitabh Bachchan Sir has it. When he speaks, you just want to hear him forever and ever, and I wish I could do that.”
Ram is also very excited, proud and at the same time nervous about the show, because it has a very different concept. He also likes the fact that his kids can watch this show “as the stories are lessons for life.” Speaking about a life lesson that he has always cherished in his life, he said, “I like being spontaneous. I don’t follow any scripts too much and just go with the flow. I think that’s my strength because an anchor should be spontaneous and build that connect with the viewers. My weakness is that I don’t have a command on the language like Amitabh Bachchan Sir has it. When he speaks, you just want to hear him forever and ever, and I wish I could do that.” He also spoke about the most important lesson of his life, which is to, “live and let others live peacefully. That is how I have always lived my life and that’s what I teach my children also.” The show, is all slated to premiere on June 6, at 8 :30 pm on Sony TV and is being bankrolled by Bollywood’s popular designer and now producer Shabinaa Khan.
