Big stars will be flooding the small screen in the coming months playing hosts on various reality shows. While Salman Khan anchors Bigg Boss, Priyanka Chopra sets the adrenaline racing in Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 3.
Big B puts contestants on the ‘hot seat’ in Kaun Banega Crorepati again as Akshay Kumar dons apron strings — he began as a chef, remember?
Hitlist conducted a poll to ascertain which star the audience was eagerly waiting for. Sallu topped the list with the Big B coming second. PC and Akki keep company at the furthest end. Here’s how the online readers voted…
45% Salman Khan
Bigg Boss 4
Everyone knows that Sallu can be a major riot with his wisecracks, chuckles and impromptu dialogues — he can get away with anything. The audience has had a jhalak of him in 10 Ka Dum where he was the stellar attraction! And the added incentive — he can take off his shirt. Salman cuts a swathe through various age groups.
39% Amitabh Bachchan
This is the fourth season of the quiz show and with the help of Computerji, AB has put numerous contestants on the hot seat. Apart from his deep baritone and shuddh Hindi, the anchor commands respect and awe. He also provides a chance to brush up on your general knowledge.
9% Priyanka Chopra
Very few women anchors have made a big dent. Recall Madhuri Dixit’s stint of hosting the matchmaking show Kahiin Na Kahiin Koi Hai? Manisha Koirala’s quiz show Sawal Dus Crore Ka? Both were duds. The asli Fear Factor version has a male host Joe Rogan — it works only with him.
7% Akshay Kumar
Cooking may be his forte but for the telly audience it is best left to women in the afternoon slot. Akki will have to resort to some action (flying among pans and getting tossed around in a platter?) to attract the men and kids to watch him. If Yan can cook, so can he!
Suna hai ki Hrithik Roshan has been approached by a channel to host a dance show for kids. With the Khans and Kumars in the fray, why should Roshan be left out?
