TV shows are a big deal as they offer regular connectivity to the people. Now there are fictional shows with which the addiction can be understood and is pretty obvious but that is not the only type of the TV show that is popular amongst the masses these days. There was once a time when soap opera was a big deal in TV world. The Saas Bahu dramas and the family dramas were so popular that there actors had the status equal to that of a Bollywood celebrity. Audiences and viewers of the shows were so crazy about these shows that many of the twists and turns in the serials had to be cancelled based on the public demands (remember the famous Mihir fiasco when he was brought back from dead in the serial based on the public demand).
But then came the time of the reality shows and shows that are far much more connected to the reality. These shows however require a key element and that key element being Hosts. Hosts have to be so skilled that the audiences in the studio and the ones sitting at the homes in front of TVs can feel connected to these hosts. So here we bring to you most famous TV hosts in India:
