Colors set to launch ‘The Anupam Kher Show’ season 2 in July

MUMBAI: “You could dream and stop or believe and reach the stars” was the core message of Hindi general entertainment channel (GEC), Colors, promised last year and delivered through its talk show - The Anupam Kher Show - Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai.


After having a popular stint last year, The Anupam Kher Show is all set to have its second season with an hope to extract more jewels of experience from celebrities and making them the shining beacon of possibilities for the audiences. The channel continues to have Jyothi Laboratories’ Henko as the ‘powered by’ sponsor.


The show is expected to go on-air in July and will continue to be a Sunday property.


The Anupam Kher Show is a format that has not been explored much but definitely experimented with by Hindi GECs. With this show, the genre saw a re-birth.


Hosted by veteran actor - Anupam Kher, the show gave an unprecedented glimpse into the lives of celebrities, as they revealed stories of faith, hope, struggle, victory and success.


Produced by Actor Prepares Productions, season one saw prominent celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Alia and Mahesh Bhatt, Vidya Balan, David and Varun Dhawan, Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, Kapil Sharma, Parineeti Chopra and Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonam Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, cricketer Yuvraj Singh, Om Puri and Naseeruddin Shah on the show.


In order to take the show a notch higher this season, Colors and Kher’s endeavour is to create a comfortable setting for the celebrities to share interesting anecdotes from their lives, which propelled them to achieve the goal they had set for themselves.


This season the line-up of celebrities include Kajol, Anil Kapoor, Madhuri Dixit, Priyanka Chopra, Boman Irani, Irrfan Khan and Gulzar amongst others.


Unlike other chat shows where celebrities come to promote their movies, the beauty of The Anupam Kher Show is that it involves no movie integrations, is completely non-scripted and sans cue cards.


Though Kher had made the second season announcement a while back on Twitter, Colors CEO Raj Nayak made an announcement at the IIFA Awards 2015 this past weekend in Kuala Lumpur.


Kher’s tweet read, “Thank you @ColorsTV & @rajcheerfull for another season of #TheAnupamKherShow. Let’s share more inspiring stories.”


Sources inform that all the 12 episodes have been canned at Yash Rah Studios, Mumbai.




The Anupam Kher Show – Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai is an extension of Kher’s autobiographical play Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai where he has openly spoken about his failure and how he manipulated his destiny. The thespian through the conversations with Bollywood’s biggest celebrities plans to uncover the hidden chapters from their book of life, stories of their resilience, heart breaks, triumphs and how they’ve turned every obstacle into a milestone just the way he resurrected his own life.


When compared to earlier talk shows such as Movers and Shakers on Sab, Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai on Zee TV, Issi Ka Naam Zindagi on Star Plus and Koffee With Karan season 4 (repeats) on Star Plus, The Anupam Kher Show was rated the highest in terms of viewership for the launch episode.


According to data provided by the channel, The Anupam Kher Show opened with 2,591 TVTs in week 28, whereas Movers and Shakers recorded 2,283 TVTs,Issi Ka Naam Zindagi registered 1,089 TVTs and Koffee With Karan season 4 had garnered 738 TVTs.


According to Nayak, people’s perception was that talk shows don’t get the ratings and by achieving the title of highest rated show during launch, he believed the show had managed to get both, perception and ratings.
