Forgotten Avatars of Stars

Television is one of the most consumed media in India. Bollywood stars very often grace the small-screen as hosts/judges of shows as it helps them connect with a larger audience. Of course, they charge exorbitant amounts to host each episode but having a star onboard automatically makes the show more popular and fetches higher TRPs. Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have made Bigg Boss and Kaun Banega Crorepati their own shows and are almost irreplaceable. But there are some celebrities who have hosted shows that have not been as popular. Here’s the list of television’s less known hosts from less­known shows
 
Govinda
 
 
Govinda hosted Jeeto Chappar Phaad Ke way back in 2001. The concept of the show was similar to Kaun Banega Crorepati, where a contestant had to answer general questions and had four lifelines at his disposal.
 
Rajeev Khandelwal
 
 
Rajeev made his transition from television to the big screen with the critically acclaimed film, Aamir. He returned to TV as a host for the show Sach Ka Saamna, which was adapted from The Moment of Truth.
 
Shahrukh Khan
 
 
Shahrukh may have stepped into Amitabh Bachchan’s shoes for one season of Kaun Banega Crorepati, but he later hosted Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain? on Star Plus itself. The show’s concept was to ask adults simple questions that even a fifth grader would know the answer to.
 
Neena Gupta
 
 
Neena Gupta got more fame on television than in Bollywood. She hosted Kamjor Kadi Kaun and was (in)famous for the manner in which she conversed with the contestants.
 
Priyanka Chopra
 
 
The Indian version of Fear Factor, Khatron Ke Khiladi was initially hosted by Akshay Kumar. However, he was replaced by Priyanka in the third season, which had male contestants only.
