Sajid-Karan to host Zee Awards


By Faridoon Shahryar, Bollywood Hungama News Network

They say, love changes…everything…similarly success also changes…Everything. Host-cum-dost Sajid Khan's prowess as super-hit director which got noticed with his debut film, Heyy Babyy, has rubbed off big time on his confidence and timing as entertainment world's premiere host as was evident at the Star Screen Awards this year. He will be back to hosting another big event and that too with another superstar Compere, Karan Johar, at the Zee Cine Awards in London on April 26th 2008. “Yes, we are hosting it together,” Sajid confirmed to Bollywood Hungama.

This is for the first time that Sajid and Karan will be hosting a show together. So, have you planned something unique and different to surprise and entertain the audience? “I can't talk about it right now. But yes, Karan hasn't hosted a show with a male host before and nor have I. I respect and admire Karan.”

Sajid has another ace up his sleeve as he is all set to host a chat show on a new TV Channel (name yet to be disclosed). “The show is called Sajid's Superstar.” We've heard it is somewhat similar to Karan Johar's Koffee with Karan. “It is absolutely different. It has many fun oriented rounds. It's in Hindi and the duration of the show is 1 hour.”

Alright, let's talk about Sajid, the filmmaker. Well, after the humungous success of Heyy Babyy, Khan will get busy with Houseful, a romantic comedy by the end of the year. The cast already includes Akshay Kumar, Deepika Padukone, Jiah Khan and Riteish Deshmukh. So, Sajid, what is it about Houseful that you haven't shared with a journalist so far? “I shall be finalizing the music director of the film soon. I am hunting for a heroine and a big actor.” Any idea who the big actor may be? “If I tell you the hunt will be over,” Sajid said with a chuckle.
