Though Bollywood stars don’t have to appear on Television to increase their popularity, we have seen them venturing in to TV for various reasons. First and foremost, they are offered fat pay checks for their TV appearances. It also helps them to connect with the viewers. All the top stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Madhuri Dixit etc. have participated in various TV shows. Non-Bollywood stars like Kapil Sharma also rule TV these days. Celebrated producer-director Karan Johar has also tasted success on TV. So, who are these top 7 entertainment television hosts in India? Let’s find out below!
Amitabh Bachchan (Kaun Banega Crorepati)
Picture 1 of 7
Amitabh Bachchan hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati 6 times! (Shahrukh Khan hosted season 3, otherwise Big B hosted all the seasons from 1-7). Nobody could match the personality, aura and the command of Big B when it comes to KBC and that is exactly why KBC organizers had to discontinue Shahrukh Khan as a host after 3rd season. However, the latest reports suggest that Farhan Akhtar will replace Big B in season 8. Will it help the show? That remains to be seen!
Now, vote for the most favourite TV host below!

Shahrukh Khan’s better half Gauri Khan graced the cover of Hello magazine India March 2014 edition. And she talked about her son Abram and her interior decoration business ‘The Design Cell’ as well.
In a recent interview she talked about AbRam ad The Design cell in detail – check the excerpts below!
How old is AbRam now?
Ten months old. He’s so cute, look at the dimples. He looks a lot like Shah Rukh and Aryan. I bring him over to the store as it’s very convenient for me.
Oh, he looks beautiful and naughty. Is he like his dad?
I’m no less. He’s like both of us. He’s the centre of everyone’s attention. Shah Rukh wakes up with him; he has to see AbRam the first thing in the morning. Luckily, he has more time than before, so he’s enjoying it.
Who have Suhana and Aryan taken after?
They are talented, bright and sorted. They are as ambitious as their father. Aryan is very ambitious; he wants to top everything he does in school. Suhana, on the other hand, is a little shy but she also does well at school.
Who for you is the woman of substance?
I appreciate all women achievers who have done or are doing great jobs in their fields. So there could be Mother Teresa, who’s touched everyone’s lives in some way or the other, or Margaret Thatcher, Marilyn Monroe or Madonna. They are all women of substance. Personally, I have no role models who I emulate or wish to be like.
We’ve heard that you have handpicked everything in your store, The Design Cell.
Yes, I have. It feels nice to provide such a platform to young and upcoming designers. I have a lot of culture in my store. It essentially showcases a lot of collectibles. I’m very fond of good artists and I look at their works so that I can give them a place here. I’m looking for good galleries. I would love if any young, upcoming designers want to display their products here. If they can’t afford to open their own store, they can do it here.
It’s time to be nostalgic! Let’s once again take a look at the glamorous wedding photos of Bollywood stars. Bollywood marriages do not have much lifetime if we take a closer look at it. But there are couples who fight all the odds in their marriage and manage to cling on to their marriage irrespective of the rough weather. And we have also seen couples going separate ways (including Hrithik Roshan and his wife Sussanne Khan). Nonetheless, weddings are still a big part of our lives and let’s have a look at the pictures below. And tell us about your favorite couples!

Imtiaz Ali’s road movie Highway starring Aalia Bhatt and Randeep Hooda is declared as a hit after second weekend. Though the movie had a slow start and average run at the box office, the less production cost and an intelligent release strategy has come in handy for the movie. The movie wasn’t a romantic comedy to have a wider appeal. It was a niche film made for a niche audience. So, the makers had to be careful with the release strategy. For the same reason, they released the movie in less than 800 screens across the country. They handpicked screens from selective metros. Since it was a multiplex movie, they targeted multiplexes mostly. And that has worked in favor of the movie as it is still running in many centers.

Hrithik Roshan is always known for his hard work, dedication and quest for perfection to his work. So, nothing could come in the way for the actor when he performed daredevil stunt scenes in Delhi for Bang Bang. The traffic literally came to a standstill when the actor attempted those risky action sequences. Hrithik Roshan was told not to perform risky action scenes ever since his head surgery last year post an accident occurred on the sets of Bang Bang while doing a diving scene. It seems like Hrithik is not ready to succumb to the orders of the doctors. The cast and crew shot the movie in Mayur Vihar area.
Hrithik’s co-star Katrina Kaif is also in Delhi for the shoot of this action film, directed by Siddharth Anand of Salaam Namaste fame. The movie is the official remake of Hollywood film Knight And The Day and it is all set to release on 2nd October, 2014.
Take a look at the pictures from the sets!
