Stand-up comedian-cum-actor Kavi Shastri will be hosting Bindass’ upcoming show Love By Chance. It will be after a long time that Shastri will be seen on television, after his role in Rishta.com on Sony. Love By Chance is a romantic comedy, with Shastri playing an instrumental role in introducing the characters and situations to the audience. Talking about his decision to host the show, he says, “I never thought about hosting, but when I do my stand-up acts, it’s pretty much like hosting, and when I heard the concept of the show, it seemed just right. It’s pretty unique in the sense that it’s rare to find a show that’s really positive about love. Of what I’ve seen, most shows generally depict the darker side of romance.”
The transition to hosting a show required Shastri to quell the actor in him. “As an actor you forget that there’s a camera, but now the camera has become my best friend,” he laughs adding that, “There’s a little bit of myself, in every episode, because you can’t not be yourself especially when you’re hosting. I do bring a little bit of the British deadpan humour and wit. It works nicely, because that flavour is already in the script; what I’m doing is just accentuating it.” The show will go on air from May 31.
