Yuvraj Singh to host TV show

Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh's tale of courage was recently narrated on Colors' Zindagi Abhi Baki Hain. Now, the cricketer will be seen hosting a new series called The Unbreakables on National Geographic channel. In the series, Yuvraj will be narrating tales of resilience and the never say die spirit of people who have emerged victorious despite all odds.

Talking about his association with National Geographic Channel, the ace cricketer said, "I have tremendous respect for people with a positive attitude who face challenges head-on and emerge stronger from them. The Unbreakables is a series that recounts formidable incidents, while outlining sheer strength that people exude when the going gets tough. It's truly an honour to be associated with the National Geographic Channel and be a part of their endeavour to celebrate life."

The series will narrate various tales of people who were held hostage by guerrilla groups while on an adventure tour, to a story about a group of people who were forced to smuggle cocaine at gun point.

Sharad Kelkar hosts crime show

Sharad Kelkar was recently in news for replacing Mohnish Behl in Sony's daily soap Kuch Toh Log Kahenge. Now, the actor will be seen hosting a crime based reality show called Shaitaan - A Criminal Mind to be aired on Colors. This is not the first time that he is stepping into the world of hosting. Sharad has hosted many reality television shows in the past. This however, will be his first crime based show, a genre which intrigues Sharad. "Honestly, this genre has always attracted me. And I am quite fascinated and curious about it," said Sharad. He further added, "When I signed this show and started shooting the promos, I was shocked to learn that these kind of things happen."

Given the nature of Shaitaan, which instead of just narrating tales of crime, delves into the psyche of a criminal and Sharad's job entails more than just acting it out. He explains, "It's not only an anchor who tells the story and goes off. First of all, if I don't understand a criminal's mind, I can't explain it to the viewers the way they want me to explain. So I need to understand and study a lot."
