Revealed: Here's when Shah Rukh Khan's TED Talks India goes on air!
Shah Rukh, known for his charming wit and one-liners, had everyone in splits when he playfully portrayed himself as an ageing movie star grappling with the changes around him.
Shah Rukh Khan, who is currently promoting his upcoming film Jab Harry Met Sejal, is also gearing up for his TV show Ted Talks India: Nayi Soch. Ask him when the show will be aired and the superstar says, “I will be shooting for it in August and it will go on air in September-October.”
While he will be hosting the Indian version of the show, SRK himself delivered a speech last month in Vancouver as part of Ted Talks that is devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks. Shah Rukh, known for his charming wit and one-liners, had everyone in splits when he playfully portrayed himself as an ageing movie star grappling with the changes around him.
When asked about his experience, King Khan said, “It was one of the greatest experiences of my life. It is an intellectual and highly rated international platform and I was, in a way, speaking for the country and what we stand for.
It was very interesting and very nerve-racking to speak without a teleprompter! I am glad people liked it. It was great to meet Chris Henderson (curator of the show), and hear some of the greatest minds of the world speak. I would love to go and do it again.”
About his TV show, SRK, who will be the curator, had earlier told us, “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. There are some beautiful stories — both Indian and international — which the team is planning to get on one platform and do a nice mix of Hindi and English speakers. I feel it will be a niche show.”
