TV Raveena Tandon turns host on NDTV
Some years back, NDTV produced a show called Jeena Issi Ka Naam Hai where Farooque Sheikh slowly but surely unravelled the unseen side of some of our biggest personalities in front of us. Come February 25 Raveen Tandon will take on Sheikh's role as NDTV reinvents the series as Issi Ka Naam Zindagi . “The series will look at the person behind the celebrity. We only get to see the shining side. We seldom get to know the stories of toil and sweat that make a celebrity,” says Raveena, who has judged some reality shows in the past.
The series will not be limited to film stars and will feature names from the world of sports and business as well. To be telecast on NDTV India and NDTV 24X7, the opening episode will feature Vidya Balan, and Raveena says the highlight will be her father talking about Vidya.
After taking a break from films, Raveena is back on the sets. “I have two films in the kitty and then this show is shaping well. My hands are full,” she signs off.
