Shweta Gulati will be hosting the new reality show Dekh India Dekh, the sixth season of the stand-up comedy series Comedy Circus. The actress, who is presently working on two other shows as well, gave us the details.â€œSo far, I have shot for only two episodes and I am managing it well. I will take some time to get used to all this,â€ she says of her busy schedule. Talking about her experience on the sets, she says, â€œWe would often end up just laughing at all the acts. I once performed a gag in the series Chinchpokli to China with VIP, who made the act outstanding. I enjoyed it a lot but I feel more comfortable as a host than as a contestant.â€
The actress talks about the importance of comic timing on a show like Dekh India Dekh, saying, â€œYou have to be chirpy and on the louder side when you are hosting. I mostly have a script so spontaneity is not really required.â€
Shweta refused to admit that she is replacing Shekhar Suman on the show. She says, â€œIt is not like I am stepping into his shoes. The concept was completely different when he was hosting. It was just gags that the contestants would perform. Now, the actual competition starts. Iâ€™m taking the opportunity as an entirely new show.â€
As for the rumours that her daily soap Dil Mill Gayye is going off air, she says, â€œIt is doing well. Itâ€™s still the number two show on the channel and it has been getting good responses. As far as I know, it is not going off air. However, it is ultimately the channelâ€™s call.â€
Shweta was recently seen in the film Detective Nani, however, she says that she has no plans to swap her TV career for films yet.
