Shah Rukh Khan will soon return to TV but it is not for a reality show, but to host a televised version of a popular inspirational video series that people have loved here and abroad. The actor who has earlier been a part of shows such as Kya Aap Pachvi Paas Se Tez Hai and even hosted Kaun Banega Crorepati will now host a televised version of influential video series, TEDTalks.
TEDTalks is the collective name given for a series of videos that has people from different spheres of life addressing current issues. TED is an acronym for Technology, Entertainment and Design — these are the main elements it will cover.
In an interview with a leading daily, SRK said, “It’s a televised version of TEDTalks. I have been made to understand that it’s something that has not been done before and they want to try out this concept. People will share stories about changes in society, in life — whether it’s about the climate, dangerous diseases or to help empower women — and all of this will be integrated. He added, “We shot one episode and we are still doing a lot of focus screening because it’s something that should be done with love. He is a fan of TED Talks. Further he added, “I love anything that has to do with knowledge. I would like to be a speaker for them some time, if I have something interesting to speak about, that is.”
