Sushmita Sen confessed that her Miss India gown’s fabric was purchased from Sarojini Nagar market, and stitched by a tailor below her building. Juhi Chawla revealed that she was told her co-star (Shah Rukh Khan) in Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman “resembles Aamir Khan”. One of Sanjay Dutt’s prison tales included how he gave sister Priya his jail coupons as a Rakhi gift. Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai witnessed these and many more celebrity stories.
Before glitzy celebrity talk shows (read Karan Johar’s Koffee With Karan), Indian television had one of the most candid shows in the form of Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai. The show began with Faaroq Sheikh as its host, and later Suresh Oberoi came on board. Till date, it is considered to be one of the classiest, most sensitive and well-researched celebrity talk shows.
Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai aired between 2002-2008 on Zee TV. From top film stars and sportspersons, to musicians and politicians, the creme de la creme graced the show as guests.
Here are some of the best episodes of Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai that can be revisited anytime:
