MUMBAI: Director Kabir Khan (Kabul Express) will be producing three shows for NDTV’s upcoming channel NDTV Lifestyle, which is scheduled to go on air next month.
The three shows will be produced by Khan’s production house Camera Art. Speaking to Businessofcinema.com, Khan says, “The three shows will be on air from the next month when NDTV launches the new channel. One of our shows is a chat show that will be hosted by Rajat Kapoor, the other is a health show and the third one is a unique show on pets.”
Khan’s wife and television anchor Mini Mathur will be a part of the production team for these shows. “Mini has also been part of the creative and other details related to the show, which I hope would be a different treat for the viewers.”
Khan, who has a three film contract with Yash Raj Films is also scripting his next venture for the production house.
The trend of Bollywood courting the small screen is becoming a popular phenomenon now. After Mahesh Bhatt’s Vishesh Films announced that it is planning to supply content for TV channels, it’s Shah Rukh Khan’s turn to do the same. Reportedly, the actor has a 10 per cent stake in the BAG Glamour; the new entity promoted by Anurradha Prasad of Bag Films and Media Ltd. Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions has joined the fray and will be making content for NDTV Imagine. It’s also learnt that Yash Raj Films is also eyeing the TV space and might join the bandwagon soon.
