    KBC script writers head to Bollywood!
    R D Tailang, who has been with the show since its very beginning, says it has completely changed his life. "To be honest professionally it has made a lot of difference. After KBC 2 I developed a name in the industry. My pay packet became five times bigger. I got a house, a car. And today I write for some of the best shows on television."
    Manoj Muntashir speaks of similar good fortune. "I joined the show in the second season. And after that there has been no looking back for me. I've got such a huge list of people wanting to me to write shows and it's reached a point where, I'm ashamed to admit it but I actually have to turn down shows because I don't have the time. If I'm honest my charges first got doubled and tripled now."

    Muntashir says thanks to his success on the show he is finally attaining his life long dream of writing for movies. "If I'm completely honest I think all of us in television want to reach the big screen. I always wanted to write for movies. My first movie Dus Kahaaniyan is coming out soon. It's by Sanjay Gupta and stars Sanjay Dutt amongst others. I have written four songs in the movie. The songs are sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, Shibani Kashyap and Sonu Niigam and the music by Bappi Lahiri and his son, Bappa. What else can someone ask for in their first movie?"

    Both stars are elated with the fact that SRK has promised work with them in his next movie. "During KBC 3, Shah Rukh said he would get in touch in May with me for his movie. I am also working on Sanjay Gupta's next which stars Dia Mirza and Sanjay Dutt," says an elated Manoj.

    "We all developed a great rapport with Shah Rukh. We are around the same age so it was like working with a friend. He is also very friendly. In fact there is no star barrier with him and towards the end of the shoot he himself mentioned that he would like me to work on the script of his next movie. In addition tot hat I'm also in the midst of discussing my scripts with some big producers," adds Tailang.

    Manoj on working with Big B and SRK
    Working with Shah Rukh was very different compared to Bachchanji. With Mr. Bachchan all we did was read out the script, he gave his comments and we left. With SRK it was completely different. We were much more at ease. We would discuss the script but he was very involved as well. We became so friendly that I could actually comment on his clothes and tell him 'I don't think this suit looks good on you!' which I couldn't ever think of doing with Mr. Bachchan.

    RD on working with Big B and SRK
    With Mr. Bachchan his aura is so much that you can't help but feel small before him. Even if he stands next to you, you still feel like an ant with him. I used to get scared to take my script to him. More than writing it was difficult to read it. But it was a great experience nonetheless. With SRK it was a complete turn around. The way we spoke to each other, interacted was very different as compared to Bachchanji.

    See...how humble shahrukh is n so down to earth.
    he will not let people feel small or make people feel he is very superior than people around him. that's the STAR quality he has in himself, that rarely other stars have in them
