Bollywood Actors Rocked the Small Screen With These Awesome Shows

Television in India is huge. The medium has a much wider reach than films as remote areas in the country do not have movie theatres. In the year 2000, superstar Amitabh Bachchan decided to give the smaller screen a shot and boy did it change the face of Indian television! Kaun Banega Crorepati is currently on air and the TRPs are soaring. Check out these other TV shows that were made popular by Bollywood stars.

1. Bigg Boss

While Shilpa Shetty, Arshad Warsi, and even Amitabh Bachchan have hosted this show, Salman Khan has made it his own. He has been an integral part of Bigg Boss and a lot of people only watch it for him.


2. Khatron Ke Khiladi

The first season of the Indian adaptation of Fear Factor was hosted by Akshay Kumar. The TRPs helped Colors become the Number One channel and the show was later hosted by Priyanka Chopra, Arjun Kapoor, and Rohit Shetty.


3. Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain?

Shah Rukh Khan was a delight to watch on the Indian version of Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?. Unfortunately, the show didn’t do well and wasn’t renewed for another season.


4. 10 Ka Dum

Before hosting Bigg Boss, Salman was a part of 10 Ka Dum. The show had an interesting concept where contestants had to predict what people in the country think about various subjects.


5. Satyameva Jayate

Aamir Khan chose an unconventional show to make his TV debut. Satyameva Jayate spoke about relevant social issues and Khan often got teary-eyed on the show.
