18 Bollywood Stars who graced the Small Screen

Don't get confused! It's not about those actors who failed to make it big in Bollywood so made a place for themselves in the television industry. It is about those Bollywood actors who went on to capture the small screen with reality shows to give a boost to their stardom even more. With rumors about SRK doing another game show, let us look at the various Bollywood celebs who tried making it big on the small screen too as reality show hosts. While some managed to love up to the expectations, others failed miserably.


1. Amitabh Bachchan:

The man who is responsible for starting the trend! When the film industry had almost forgotten Big B, he rose back to fame with the famous 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', as how that ensured his stay in showbiz for the next two more decades. And yes, he had hosted the 3rd season of Big Boss too!


2. Salman Khan:

Like Big B, Salman's support to come out of a dark and almost-finished career was television. He once again became a household name after his 'Dus Ka Dumm' and took his stardom to a different level with the various seasons of 'Bigg Boss'. He is considered as the best host of Bigg Boss.


3. Shah Rukh Khan:

The man who started his journey from TV went back to the television world but wasn't accepted. While he charmed everyone as the host of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', people missed Big B's style of hosting the game show. His 'Kya Aap Panchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?' was another failure. His last appearance on TV in the game-show 'Zor Ka Jhatka' was appreciated by many but didn't have enough TRPs.


4. Hrithik Roshan:

He is considered as the best actor-dancer in India. And perhaps its his passion for dance that prompted him to 'Just Dance'. The show was a moderate hit.


5. Akshay Kumar:

Khiladi hai, toh 'Khatron Ka Khiladi' hi host karega na! And he did it so well!


6. Priyanka Chopra:

Priyanka too hosted a season of 'Khatron ke Khiladi' replacing Akshay.


7. Govinda:

Our very own Chi Chi bhaiyya too tried his hand at hosting television game show with “Jeeto Chappar Phaad Ke'. It surely didn't do wonders for him the way 'G Phaad Ke' did 13 years later!


8. Karan Johar:

He masters the art of making celebs talk in the most controversial manner along with a cup of Koffee. His 'Lift Kara De' was an attempt to unite the celebs with their biggest fan and was also a hit show! Here is one director who has always been a hot on the small screen too.


9. Rohit Shetty:

“Did someone say director?” The handsome and successful director has been hosting the latest seasons of 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' given his amazing action-director image.


10. Preity Zinta:

After stardom disappeared, Preity tried her hand at getting Indians to break the various records of the Guinness World Book of Records. After that, she tried doing something a la 'Koffee With Karan' with 'The Preity Zinta Show'


11. Simi Garewal:

Much before Karan got the celebs to appear on TV, Simi Garewal made them speak their hearts out and let the nation know about their favorite actor's story in 'Rendezvous With Simi Garewal'


12. Mithun Chakraborty:

The finest dancer of the previous era, Mithun da, has been judging the dance show 'Dance India Dance' and has been enthralling the audiences with his “Kya Baat, Kya Baat, Kya Baat!”.


13. Abhishek Bachchan:

Abhishek too hosted a game-show 'National Bingo Nights' when his career was at the peak but somehow, failed to strike a chord with the audience the way his father did!


14. Farah Khan:

Though she has been the judge for various dance shows and talent shows, she too tried having an informal chat with the celebs in her talk-show 'Tere Mere Beach Mein'. Recently, she is seen hosting 'Big Boss Halla Bol'.


15. R. Madhavan:

He had hosted the first season of the reality game show 'Deal Ya No Deal', remember?


16. Farhan Akhtar:

Farhan too has hosted a celebrity talk show with his much-renowned charm and humor 'Oye! It's Friday!'


17. Arshad Warsi:

Arshad hosted the first season of 'Bigg Boss' at his charming best!

18. Shilpa Shetty:

She had hosted the second season of 'Bigg Boss' at a time when she was the flavor of the season all over again!


So here's wishing King Khan all the best for his upcoming TV venture, hoping that this time, he would nail it!
