Abhishek opts for metrosexual look for debut TV show!


New Delhi, Dec 29 (IANS) Dressed in a bright yellow coat over a pale yellow shirt and white trousers, Abhishek Bachchan sports a metrosexual look for his debut TV show "National Bingo Night" to be aired on Colors.

Apart from that, the actor sports a baby pink jacket for the promotional photo shoot for the show.

However, this isn't the first time Abhishek is flaunting the metrosexual look - he made similar style statements in movies like "Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna" and "Dostana".

He is extremely excited about the show, being produced by Fox Television Studios India Pvt. Ltd.

"It's a fun-filled show where the whole country will be my guest without applying any brains or answer any difficult questions. This is such a chilled out concept and something that has never been done before in India. The sheer simplicity of the idea and the fact that this show is highly interactive is what attracted me to it," Abhishek said in a press statement.

The game show will have two fast-paced rounds of the popular guessing game 'Bingo'.

The formal launch of the show was preceded by a flurry of marketing activity including teasers on the channel. For the past few weeks, viewers could see glimpses of Abhishek reclining on a chair or dozing in a cosy bed in promos announcing the launch of his 'Aaram Classes'.

"The idea here is that it's a show which is to be enjoyed by relaxing. That's why we came up with the concept of Aaram Classes... we want people to chill out and play this game. There's no stress, no tension involved at all. So tune in to learn 'aaram' and get ready for Bingo," said Abhishek.

The launch date of the show has yet to be announced.

The format of the show is owned by 20th Fox Television Distribution and it has run successfully in the US, Australia and Philippines.
