Preity Zinta to host chat show


By Hindustan Times

After a lukewarm attempt to win over TV audience with Guinness Book of World Records: Ab India Todega, actress Preity Zinta is gearing up to woo fans with her own celebrity chat show.

Even in 2009, Zinta had expressed her desire to host a chat show with cricketers, but the idea was shelved. Now, she will finally be seen in The Preity Zinta Show.

"Preity has been trying to get a show going for the longest time. Interestingly, she finally got it going with Shah Rukh Khan's company Red Chillies Idiot Box. They are producing the show and it will be called The Preity Zinta Show," Mumbai Mirror quotes a source as saying.

While the chat show will invite celebrities in the same format as Koffee With Karan and Simi Selects India's Most Desirable, there's buzz that first celebrity will be none other than Abhishek Bachchan, "The channel is hoping that the show turns out to be their trump card as they go on air on August 19. It is a Bollywood related channel and this is a good way to get the eyeballs," a source told the tabloid.

After a slew of celebrity chat shows, let's wait and watch whether Preity's bubbly charm can do what Simi's couldn't!
