Shah Rukh Khanâ€™s first ever reality show Knight and Angles will start on February 28. We caught up with the showâ€™s creative head Pranjal Khandhdiya and he gave us the details.Khandhdiya says, â€œWeâ€™ve selected 24 girls from all over Mumbai. Most are from small towns and are around 18 to 22-years-old. One of the girls is even married! Even though she comes from a conservative family, her mother-in-law really wanted her to be a part of the show.â€Shah Rukh met the girls recently and was all praise for them. Pranjal says, â€œSRK is super excited about the show. He met up with the girls and said that all of them are so unique. He got a really positive vibe from them.â€ The girls were selected according to their attitude. Pranjal says, â€œWe had only three criteria for selecting contestants: attitude, love for sport and dance. We didnâ€™t think they had to look or act a certain way.â€
Shaimak Dawar will train these girls during the show. â€Shaimak and our team selected the girls. The show will be judged by Shaimak and Sourav Ganguly and in every episode, a Bollywood celebrity will be the third judge. The best six girls will get a chance to perform in the coming IPL (Indian Premier League) and they will be under a contract. They will be the cheerleaders for the Kolkatta Knight Riderâ€™s team,â€says Khandhdiya.
