On the edge of my seat...

Hello again.

In my last post, I mentioned how excited I was for the debut episode of my latest show, Sach ka Samna. Now that its just a few days away, I'm on the edge with anticipation.

Perhaps this is because its a new format of television, at least in our country. International TV though, has seen this form of reality show viz a vis The Moment of Truth, which Fox launched last year. Ever since I saw the first episode, I was hooked. Its one of those few shows which really makes you empathise with the contestant. You want them to win, and for that you want them to be honest. And it's really intriguing to find out just how often that could result in tears.

Add to that the fact that, as a part of the show, the contestants' families and friends are seated right in front of them, in the studio. And to top it all, there's a studio audience that makes the contestant feel all the more self-conscious. Talk about pressure....

As the show host of Sach ka Samna, I've been trying to retain those high levels of drama while still maintaining the overall dignity of the ones in the hot seat, and of their families. That's the biggest challenge though. And when the questions are on the realms of typical Indian hush-hush's, like sex and infidelity, it really does seem like I'm taking the contestant through the Agnipariksha.

But, at this stage, I wouldn't wanna give away too much about the show....You'll just have to tune in for that, as I hope you will. As always, I'm keen to read your comments about your views on the show, the dark secrets you wanna see revealed on it, and on just the newness of the format.

Dont forget to catch the first episode this Wednesday at 10.30 p.m on Star Plus. Till then, take care.

About Me

My photo
Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
I'm Rajiv, an actor from Indian Cinema. I made a beginning with television – which made me better known as Sujal in 'Kahin To Hoga' on Star Plus. I was then involved in various other roles in Time Bomb (an Indian version of the show 24), CID and Left Right Left. I was always a sporty person as a child, so it translated into having more of these action oriented roles. Many of you may know me from last year's film Aamir – my debut, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta. I was very happy with the reviews I received, especially from the film fraternity. Being in the limelight has been a rose with its thorns as well. Hence, all the speculation about personal life, the work and more. So I felt it best to put out a more authentic source of information – my blog and microblog – on twitter!
