Shweta Gulati to host Dekh India Dekh

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.“So 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,” she says of her busy schedule. Talking about her experience on the sets, she says, “We 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.”

The actress talks about the importance of comic timing on a show like Dekh India Dekh, saying, “You have to be chirpy and on the louder side when you are hosting. I mostly have a script so spontaneity is not really required.”

Shweta refused to admit that she is replacing Shekhar Suman on the show. She says, “It 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. I’m taking the opportunity as an entirely new show.”

As for the rumours that her daily soap Dil Mill Gayye is going off air, she says, “It is doing well. It’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 channel’s call.”

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.
