Rhea Kapoor is launching her own celebrity chat show. It will be aired soon. Called On The Bench, it will feature top celebs from Bollywood. The shooting has already begun. And two episodes featuring Farah Khan and Anil Kpaoor have already been shot. The show will be anchored by the irrepressible Cyrus Sahukar. The vibe will be fun and tongue-in-cheek.
The celeb guests will sit on a wooden bench which will be carried by the unit everywhere for the interview, and that’s where it gets its name from (remember On The Couch with Koel Purie?). Sonam Kapoor will be one of the guests on the show.
A source close to Rhea says, “This show will not be aired on the television. It is for the internet and can be viewed on YouTube as well. It will have a proper digital launch. Rhea is getting celebs to do fun things and push the envelope. People will be shocked to see X-rated fun stuff on it.
The show will be a PR person’s nightmare where the stars will roll up his/sleeves and expose everything in good fun! It’s about differentiating the real from the fake. The show is supposed to be the opposite of what Simi Garewal did on her tv show. Also, Cyrus will be doing a take off on her.”
