Shah Rukh Khan is all set to host the Indian version of TED Talks which stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. The inspirational and motivational show that will have eminent speakers from all strata of the society, will be called Nayi Soch and it will clash with Bigg Boss on the weekends. Fans are truly going to be put to test as they will have to choose between the two shows on the weekends. Salman Khan too is well aware of this and even joked about the same during the launch of his much talked about show, Bigg Boss last week.
Well today at the launch event of his show, Shah Rukh Khan was asked if he would love hosting Bigg Boss if given a chance. The witty person that he is, Shah Rukh Khan said, “I have hosted several shows. But honestly I have not been approached for such kind of show, yet. If I will have time, I will. If it gives good money. Having said that, I am not charging for TED as much as the other actors are for their respective shows.” Needless to say the actor and the audiences chortled at his sarcastic and funny response. Well wouldn’t it be interesting to see our favourite King Khan host the controversial show. We’re damn sure that Salman Khan’s ardent fans won’t accept this idea and let go of their favourite star as the host of what is perhaps India’s biggest and most watched reality show. After all, Salman has hosted the show for 8 consecutive years. (ALSO READ: TED Talks Nayi Soch: 5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Miss Watching Shah Rukh Khan’s Show)
