Shah Rukh Khan, the Baadshah of Bollywood is back on television with Imagine's new reality show, Zor Ka Jhatka. Here is the actor in conversation..


Imagine will kick-start the New Year in style with the world's biggest obstacle mega-show, Zor Ka Jhatka with the impeccable host Shah Rukh Khan who will provide his funny, witty and at times nasty commentary on the proceedings. SRK is back on television after a hiatus with the show that will put to stake a huge prize money worth Rs. 1.5 crores, including a mega cash prize of Rs. 50 lakhs for the winner of the Finale.


Shah Rukh Khan had a gala time when he met the media and addressed their queries regarding the show, his comeback to TV and much more..

Shahrukh, you are back on small screen after a long time. How is the feeling?
I am feeling very healthy as I am back from where I actually started my journey. It is always a homely feeling to entertain people on TV. I was not in a proper condition after my movie 'My Name Is Khan'; I was bit depressed after sustaining lot of injuries. Now that I am back after a break, I feel energetic and am looking forward to entertaining people in my own style.

Tell us about Zor Ka Jhatka?
The show is a very weird kind, something similar to what I am, a little bit funny just like me, and also involves bit of craziness like what I have within me (smiles). Apart from that, there are going to be 28 contestants who will take part in the show and I will guide them. In addition to that, I will encourage them too, will scold if needed, and will be funny based on the situation. There is going to be no elimination, the one who is tough will win the game.



What do you expect from the show, will this show be a family entertainer?
Usually I don't take up shows that do not provide entertainment to families. I am a bedroom entertainer, and believe in shows where the whole family can sit and enjoy with everyone. I am a family guy and I know the restriction and rules which should be followed by one.

Why Imagine?
Sameer Nair is a very good friend of mine. When I started off with KBC it was with Sameer, so I have this personal attachment.

Would you be trying out some stunts?
The show is all about water and I am someone who avoids getting near water. Had it been on land, I would have definitely given it a go.

Why do you think viewers should watch Zor Ka Jhatka?
There is no brainstorming sessions out here, it is simple easy viewing. Our show is very safe and our participants would be really funny. I am sure they will do everything to prove that they are idiots. I will try to be as nice as possible.

The show is a replica of the show Takeshi's Castle which is hosted by Javed Jafrey, do you think you can reach that level of comedy?
No, I will entertain people in my own way. Javed is my friend and he has a great sense of humor. His talking style is something which makes audience go crazy, I won't do the same that Javed does, but will try my best to entertain my audience to the fullest.

After making a big name in Bollywood, don't you feel bad to come back to the small screen?
No, I never feel bad or dejected because I believe in entertaining people, whether it be on small screen, big screen or on the stage. I even dance in my bathroom; the platform does not matter for me. People sometimes say 'Shahrukh nachke bata na…' and I do it because I purely believe in performing and entertaining people.

Nowadays, reality shows adapt to controversies to increase its ratings. How far will this show go to get popular?
As I said before, I am a family guy and I won't allow any bad comments and odd behavior in the show and I will also abstain from such things. If someone is indulging in it I won't entertain the person, I am not in favour of Gali Galoch, I believe I am a dignified person.

So what your role be in the show?
I will be an anchor, will be the story teller will also be the guru in the show. Apart from that my major lookout will be to entertain the audience.

Many big celebs are in to TV now, so what's your take on the competition on small screen?
That's great that big celebs are in to TV now, as I think this is the only medium to reach out to a large number of audience. And to talk about the competition, I believe in healthy competition.

Saumya Tandon gives a nod to Zor Ka Jhatka, and will be seen as the 'On location' host along with SRK in the Imagine show..


You must be wondering why Saumya Tondon has given this season's DID Doubles a miss!! Well, the lady who is a very talented anchor has got a chance to share screen space with Shah Rukh Khan in Imagine's upcoming show Zor Ka Jhatka.

No, we will not see Saumya as a participant. Rather she will be seen as the 'on location' host along with the mighty SRK.

A source says, "Saumya Tandon will be seen sharing screen space with none other than Shahrukh Khan as an 'on location' host for the upcoming reality show 'Zor Ka Jhatka' on Imagine TV. Saumya will play the role of a friend, motivator and a mediator to the participants. She will be sharing an insight into the lives of the contestants, disclosing their plans & strategies and distracting them with her funny & intriguing questions."

"While she will be encouraging the contestants in overcoming their obstacles, her witty jokes will provide a comic relief in the competitive environment," adds source.

Speaking from Argentina on Zor Ka Jhatka Saumya Tandon says, "I never ever thought I'd be a part of such a crazy show! Watching the participants overcome the obstacles sends shivers up my spine. I'm glad in not in their shoes. I am absolutely thrilled to be a part of Zor Ka Jhatka as I have not done anything like this before and viewers will get to see a different side of me. The cherry on the cake is sharing screen space with none other than the King Khan and Baadshah of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan."

Let's wait and watch who gives more Jhatkas to the audience in the New Year!

Raja Chaudhary and Payal Rohatgi are in the thick of things again, as they become the centre of attraction on the sets of Zor Ka Jhatka..


Imagine's hot property Zor Ka Jhatka with Shah Rukh Khan at the helm is all set to launch from February 1st. However, the contestants who are out there in Buenos Aires, Argentina are not only coping up with injuries and adventure related problems, but are also being plagued by some heated arguments happening between certain contestants..

We hear that Raja Chaudhary who got into a spat with Priyadarshini just as they both were to board their flight to Argentina, is again in the thick of things.. This time, he is reported to have got into an argument with Vindoo Dara Singh, the winner of Bigg Boss Season 3.

Our source states, "The story goes like this. It seems Raja *****ed about Vindoo to Bhaktiyaar, and that was something related to the show of Sony, Maa Exchange wherein Vindoo's wife and Tanaaz Currim, Bhaktiyar's wife are to be swapped. Raja went and told Bhaktiyar that Vindoo is actually waiting for the moment when Tanaaz would enter his home as part of the format of the show. When Bhaktiyar confronted Vindoo, they both realized that it was Raja who played the mischief. After this, Vindoo and Raja were involved in a massive fight".

While the boys had lots to fight about, the girls section was not far behind..

"Dimpy Mahajan and Payal Rohatgi were involved in a fight too, wherein Dimpy was heard saying that the show appears to be more of a platform for ex-girl friends of her husband Rahul Mahajan to get together. The girls who were targeted by Dimpy here were of course Payal and Mink. Both Payal and Dimpy who can't stand each other had a major spat which was a sight to watch", adds our source.

The show which started with 28 contestants taking part in it, has now been reduced to the Top 15 from which the one winner will be selected..
