Mumbai: Anchor, actor and director Sajid Khan, who has hosted a string of shows and events throughout his career, is set to return to TV as a host on the small screen.
The director, who is ready with his next film ‘Humshakals’, will be doing a special show ‘Humshakal Hasee Housefull’, to be aired on STAR Plus, said a source.
The show will have the stars of his movie – Saif Ali Khan, Riteish Deshmukh, Ram Kapoor, Esha Gupta and Tamannaah.
While Esha Gupta and Tamannaah will be dancing to the songs from the film, the heroes will do mimicry and indulge in stand-up comedy. The one-hour special will be aired Sunday.
Interestingly, Bipasha Basu, who is part of the film too, will be missing from the special show due to a personal engagement.
‘Humshakals’, releasing June 20, is said to be a fun-filled drama.
Sajid, who had initially hosted talk show “Sajid’s Superstars” on TV, had earlier said his stint on the telly helped him etch out certain characters for ‘Humshakals’.
“I had this idea for quite some time. Some second and third characters played by the three actors in the film are similar to things I have done on TV. So I was at ease writing them,” he said.
