MUMBAI: IBN7 is coming up with a new show from 14 July. Titled Mirch Masala, the show would present news stories with a tinge of humour and will be hosted by Gaurav Kapoor. The show will be aired on every Saturday and Sunday at 9:30 pm.
The logic behind the new show is to spice up the weekend programming and bring out a lighter side to the serious news stories that dot the channel. The show will be satirical take on the weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s events that made news headlines.
Whether its instances like Shilpa Shetty and Richard Gere caught in the act or Pratibha Patil being nominated for Presidency, there isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t any situation to which Kapoor cannot find a funny side.
CNN-IBN and IBN 7 national sales head Sanjay Dua adds, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Mirch Masala is a distinctive programme and will definitely be received enthusiastically by our viewers who are on the lookout for fun.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Incidentally, Star News also has a programme on the same lines called Poll Khol, which is hosted by Shekhar Suman and is popular for its satirical takes.
