Simi, Karan come together for TV show

By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Jan 2 (IANS) Strange are the ways of showbiz. Simi Garewal and Karan Johar, the hosts of two most fiercely competitive celebrity talk shows, "Rendezvous With Simi Garewal" and "Koffee With Karan", are coming together to judge a music-and-dance contest on NDTV's new entertainment channel Imagine.

Though the "historic collaboration" between the two rivals is currently being kept under wraps, it is reliably learnt that Simi and Karan will be judging a TV show called "Say Shava Shava". The title itself, borrowed from a chartbuster in Johar's feature film "Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham", is indicative of the show's mood.

"It's not seasonal or episodic, but an 11-day music and dance extravaganza, like any real-life wedding where boys and girls from all over the country sing and dance and are judged for their abilities. Yes, Simi and Karan have been brought together to host the show," a source told
