“SRK will give KBC a different face,” says Ronit Roy Faridoon Shahryar IndiaGlitz [Friday, December 29, 2006] As the first KBC promo featuring Shahrukh Khan hits the television screens tonight at 9 pm, top television stars are excited about the new host of KBC. Check out their views: Deven Bhojani (Gattu from Baa Bahoo Aur Baby): I am excited and very enthusiastic to see the new season of KBC. We have all seen and watched Amitabh Bachchan, and now that Shah Rukh is the host, it gives us all the more reason to watch KBC. SRK has got the style as well as the panache. I am an SRK fan and I would love to see Mr. Bachchan on the hotseat with SRK on KBC. Ronit Roy ( Rishabh Bajaj from Kasautii and Mihir from Kyunki Saas): Well, we all loved KBC when Mr. Bachchan hosted the show. Shahrukh Khan will give KBC a different face and KBC will have a different energy altogether. It will be a little more casual now with loads of wittiness and humor. Shahrukh Khan has got an excellent sense of humour and it will be nice to see a KBC that is different from the earlier one. I would love to see Smriti on the hot seat with SRK. I am a fan of SRK. Infact you can say that I am inspired by the way he talks and conducts himself. Mouni Roy (Krishna Tulsi from Kyunki Saas Bhi): Well I am very fond of Shah Rukh Khan. I think off-screen he's a better speaker and carries himself well. I would definitely love to see Rani Mukherji on the hotseat with SRK. I make it a point to watch all his movies and of course I'd love to be on the hotseat with SRK. Vivaan Bhatena (Dhruv from Kumkum): I think he's the most apt person to replace Mr. Bachchan. He will add a new freshness to KBC and am sure viewers will have something to look forward to. There will be sheer excitement amongst the viewers. I'd definitely love to be on the hotseat with SRK. I wasn't a big fan of Shahrukh until I met him in Malaysia for a charity event. The way he interacted with the kids in spite of having an injury on his leg. He does not need to do all of this but yet he does it of his own free will. That's when I got to see another side of SRK all together. Salil Ankola (Mahen from Karam Apnaa Apnaa): Shahrukh Khan is a brilliant person and its really great to know that he will be the next host of KBC. He has got a different style altogether and one cannot compare him to somebody else. He is unique. The way he projects himself. I'd love to be on the hotseat with SRK. Who wouldn't? Gautam Rode (Lucky from Lucky): Well Shahrukh Khan is great! He will do wonders for KBC. People will have something new to look out for on KBC. I am a big SRK fan and off course I'd love to see myself on the hotseat with SRK. Rucha Gujarati (Suhana from Bhabhi): Well, SRK taking over the role of host of KBC after Amitabh is a difficult task. But Shahrukh will give KBC a new face value altogether. KBC I think now would be light hearted and humorous instead of the tensed and strict atmosphere it earlier had. I would love to see Amitabh be on the hotseat with Shahrukh. This would be an episode worth watching. I am a die-hard SRK fan. Infact I have watched DDLJ nearly 30-40 times. I love his acting and I feel he is perfect for romance. If I'm seated with Shah Rukh on the hotseat, I'd be completely hypnotized in front of him. Instead of winning prize money I'd come back with a BIG Zero. Manoj Bohra (Prem from Kasautii Zindagi Kay): Well Shah Rukh definitely appeals to today's generation. I think he is the most apt person to host KBC after Mr. Bachchan. He's energetic, witty and he'll add a lot more zest to the show. I'd be waiting to see AB on the hotseat with SRK. Well I am an SRK fan. But I don't want be on the hotseat with Shah Rukh that's because I don't want to come face to face with him on a non-fictional show. I have bigger plans. Pulkit Samrat (Lakshya from Kyunki Saas): Shah Rukh is very different. He has his own unique style, a great stylish look and a fantastic personality...So one can expect the best from him. I am an SRK fan and I'd definitely like to see myself with him on the hotseat for KBC. Prachee Shah (Kesar from Kesar): Mr. Bachchan is Mr. Bachchan and a Shah Rukh is a Shah Rukh. I'm a huge Bachchan fan but that doesn't mean I don't like SRK. SRK is truly very popular and has a huge fan following among the youth. It will be a good change. I'm sure he will have a new look and would love to see him on television after a long break. It's a reality show and will be something to look forward to. I have worked with Shah Rukh in the movie 'Hey Ram' where we had done a song together. He's a good gentleman and would definitely love to be on the hot-seat with him.
