At last, the day dawns. After aggressive promotions, a mind-blowing music launch and eye-catching hoardings all over the town, Sony Entertainment Television's much awaited show Dus Ka Dum finally goes on air on the 6th of June. The show marks the debut of suave actor, Salman Khan, as an anchor on television for the very first time. To mark the launch of the show, the entire unit along with the host threw a grand party at Taj Lands End in Bandra.
Do you think you are an apt anchor for the show?
Yes I am definitely the right person to host the show. One doesn’t need to be educated to participate in the show, so I am the appropriate host (laughs aloud) and above all it’s a common man’s game.
It will be for the first time that will think in percentages. It is for the common man and nobody has to be educated to participate in the show. The best part is that five questions will make you win 10 crores.
There is nothing called small screen and big screen. In fact, I have a lot of friends who work in television, who earlier didn’t even have money for petrol for their bikes, but today own cars and bungalows and have huge bank balances. I think TV is a huge medium to get connected to people. In fact, the movies on big screen can be seen on DVD’s be it pirated or original right in your home. So I think television as a medium is huge as it has its presence right from our living room to our bedrooms.
Umm… (Thinks quite a lot)…none actually… I want you all to see the show and watch all the interesting moments.
I like him a lot and I am a big fan of his. Sanjay Dutt and I had long hair in the movie Saajan too. But, this is actually a new look for my upcoming movie Veer by Anil Sharma.
I would rather not call any celebrities on the show.
I think I have inherited the genes of a writer and so I am writing.
See, my dogs are my life and I love them too. I think everyone has his/her wish to call their loved pet as they want. Yeah, I’ll definitely write about Shahrukh in my blog.
Panchvi pass did not do well in spite of having Shahrukh Khan as the host, how do you think your show will fare on television?
