Aamir Khan is riding high on the success of his last release 3 Idiots. He may be an idiot in this film, but in real life Aamir is a very smart person. After collecting praises from all quarters for his last film, Aamir has cracked the biggest endorsement deal ever. As if that weren’t enough, he is now ready to make his TV debut.
Reports are in that Kaun Banega Crorepati may have a new anchor. Aamir Khan has been approached to host the fourth season of KBC as has been reported widely by the media. In the TRP ratings war, this is a smart move by Star Plus and may prove to be just the right medicine. The channel desperately needs a fillip what with Piggy Chops having been signed by Colors for its Fear Factor. However, it would have been more interesting had Star Plus approached a Kareena or Katrina to host the fourth season of KBC. The rivalry for the top spot between the top rated heroines of Bollywood is interesting to watch and this would have indeed provided some fodder for the ever hungry media.
Let’s not take it away from Aamir though. The dimunitive star has indeed worked hard to be where he is today and going by his selective approach to accepting films the name Aamir today is identified with quality. The audiences swear by whatever he does and the brands that he endorses are quite happy having signed him. What will be more interesting however is, how much would Star Plus be willing to pay Aamir per episode. Previously, SRK has been paid in the range of around 75 lacs per episode for KBC 3 and if Aamir commands a much better rate than this, then the title of who actually is King Khan would really be debatable.
For the fans of Aamir Khan though, who would like to see more of their favorite star than they get to see currently this is nothing short of a treat. Also they get to know their star more up, close and personal. So they sure aren’t complaining. So put on your thinking caps and get ready..KBC 4 is coming..
