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 Imagines Knights and Angels. Its 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 its been over a year. Also,the kind of shows I have hosted have always been very informal, says Kohli.
Kohlis love for cricket and his new-found liking for Twenty20 was yet another reason why he couldnt 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 aint 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.
