Simi Garewal is known for her eloquence and unique style of hosting chat shows
The lady in white is synoymous with English talk shows on the small screen. But with an offer to do a show in Hindi (a first for her!), she is brushing up on the national language.
She says, `It's not that I don't know Hindi. I have been a Hindi film actress, remember? It is just that when you are a host, you have to be fluent in the language and have a good vocabulary. I don't want to be breaking into English in a Hindi talk show.`
Simi has a professional Hindi teacher tutoring her as part of her preparations for the show. To be aired on Colors, her programme is slated to go on air in mid-2013. `As I have time, I felt I should get my pronunciations right and my Hindi which has become a bit rusty in place,` she says.
As reported 'Simi goes desi'(Hitlist, July 23), she was approached by the channel to host a new season in Hindi for them. As she is able to enlist A-list stars for her show and get them to pour out their hearts, the channel feels they can grab more eyeballs if done on a Hindi entertainment channel.
Over a million and counting
Simi Garewal launched her personal website on her birthday on October 17. The actress-anchor has received over a million hits in the past two months. Being on social media is giving her a new high. She says, `I have designed and written every word on the site.
Most importantly I have been extremely forthright and spoken about even personal stuff like my marriage and loves. As I have interviewed stalwarts from every field there are anecdotes about all of them. It is a treasure trove of information. People are telling me I should write a book.`
