Sajid Khan and Riteish Deshmukh to Host Zee TV’s Yaaron Ki Baraat
Each one of us has a best friend in our lives and celebrities are no exception. Despite constant comparisons, cut-throat competition, hectic schedules and frequent travel, some of them have still managed to hold on to their friendships for years! For the first time on Indian television, ZEE TV brings to you a fun-filled chat show ‘Ýaaron ki Baraat’, that will put celebrity friendships to test through a series of fun challenges and tasks. To check their compatibility, televisions favourite host Sajid Khan, will be accompanied by actor Riteish Deshmukh, who will make his debut as a host on Hindi GEC.
Known for their quirky one-liners and impeccable comic timing, Riteish and Sajid will add their own touch of fun, frolic, spice and quirky humour to the show. The show will be a 10 – week joyride with some of the most sought-after hot-steppers of tinsel town sportingly taking on dares, parodying the most iconic scenes from cult films, spilling the beans on each other, reminiscing the good ol’ times through pictures, videos and basically, just letting their hair down and having a good time.
Zee TV & Zee Studios Business Head Akash Chawla said, “Yaaron Ki Baraat is part of our festive bonanza that we have in store for our audiences. Diwali centres around families and friends bonding and celebrating their togetherness. It’s the perfect time to watch Yaaron ki Baraat, with the seasoned chat show host Sajid Khan who has endeared himself to audiences with his razor-sharp wit and Riteish Deshmukh, who has a natural flair for comedy. Besides, they’re great friends themselves and their chemistry as hosts will be absolutely spontaneous.”
Riteish says, “While I have hosted awards ceremonies, this will be my first time as the host of a chat show on a Hindi GEC. To host a show celebrating friendships with a close friend like Sajid feels apt. He has a great sense of humor, an impeccable sense of comic timing and together, we hope to create the right kind of light atmosphere for the celebrities to open up and share things they haven’t spoken of. We look forward to entertaining audiences and letting them experience the friendships of their favourite stars.”
Sajid adds, “I’m looking forward to having a blast shooting with Riteish. Yaaron Ki Baraat is all about two buddies like Riteish and me getting together and having fun. While some of these Bollywood friendships are well known in public, some are not heard of. Our show will see some of these unheard Bollywood BFF’s put their compatibility to test over fun games. The idea is to let spontaneity take over and reveal their fun side to the audiences.”
