It was television that first brought Purab Kohli into limelight. And it is his love for television that has now brought him back on the small screen,after almost a year as the anchor for NDTV Imagine’s Knights and Angels. It’s a reality show to find cheer leaders for the Kolkata Knight Riders team. After the success of Rock On!! films were keeping Kohli busy. “I was busy signing films and shooting for them,when Red Chillies Idiot Box approached me to anchor their new reality show Knights and Angels,” says Kohli.

A little confused initially,he soon gave the green signal. “You cannot ask for a bigger producer than Shah Rukh Khan,” he adds.

Although Kohli had been a VJ on Channel V for many years,he feels anchoring a full-fledged reality show is a different ball game. “Firstly,I have forgotten how to anchor because it’s been over a year. Also,the kind of shows I have hosted have always been very informal,” says Kohli.

Kohli’s love for cricket and his new-found liking for Twenty20 was yet another reason why he couldn’t resist the offer. Being amongst 24 girls is yet another plus point for this young VJ-turned-actor. “I wonder how I am going to handle so many girls. But I ain’t complaining,” he says. Neither is he complaining about the films he has bagged. “Mocktail,A Rectangular Love Story and a couple of more films are in the pipeline. It finally looks like I am busy,” he jokes.
