Life has a come a full circle, said Shah Rukh Khan as he announced the launch of his new serial Ghar Ki Baat Hai on NDTV Imagine in Mumbai. For an actor who began his career with TV shows like Fauji and Circus,Tuesday was special as he turned a TV producer. He joked,Sameer Nair,CEO,NDTV Imagine,has promised to air this serial only if I do six to seven guest appearances in it. Apparently the TRP rises when I am on screen. But I did not see that happen with my last show.
Ghar Ki Baat Hai,a tribute to yesteryears sitcom Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi,is produced under the Red Chillies Idiot Box banner and is telecast on NDTV Imagine. At the launch,the cast performed a skit to introduce themselves. Sumeet Raghavan,Juhi Babbar,Swapnil Joshi,Jayati Bhatia and Ali Asgar had everybody in splits.
Anant Mahadevan,director,got nostalgic about completing 25 years on TV. Aziz Mirza,the creative director,added,For me,this really has become Ghar Ki Baat Hai as I was also a part of Yeh Jo Hai Zindagi.
SRK added that hed watched Slumdog Millionaire and liked it. There were no regrets for declining Anil Kapoors role,nor did he have a problem with the word Slumdog.
Showstopper: When a journalist asked SRK if tidbits from his household life were included in the show,the actor was quick with one of his arrogant ones. TV doesnt have enough money to build a set equivalent to my house.
