Shah Rukh Khan: Not taking on Akshay or Salman

Ted Talks, which has been a rage on the Web, is concerning India through a tv show. It’s just fitting that the show, which aims to provide a platform to ingenious ideas and success stories, will be hosted by among India’s biggest success stories – Shah Rukh Khan. On why the concept has actually been upgraded to match the design of a TV show, the actor says, “It may seem that we are going the old route by picking the med-ium of tv. This is the very first time that TED Talks is happening in Hindi. The language will [assist us] accommodate a substantial audience.”

Shah Rukh Khan With Khan coming back as a host after his stints in Kaun Banega Crorepati and Kya Aap Paanchvi Pass Se Tez Hain, contrasts with his peers– especially Salman Khan (Bigg Employer) and Akshay Kumar (The Great Indian Laughter Obstacle) are inevitable. “I’m not competing with them. They remain in a league of their own. This program has a really various sensibility. It is suggested to motivate individuals. We are not limited by TRPs and rankings.”

Akshay Kumar Explaining it as a show “that’s closest to my heart”, Khan says it is the large idea that encouraged him to come on board. “I have actually not charged as much as many stars do,” he smiles, before including, “Money has never kept me going. With the grace of God, I’m well to do. I’ve never really done anything for money.” The superstar, who is known for his eloquence, has also been approached to write and contribute for the TED Talks book. “It is a huge honour due to the fact that this is so creatively pleasing. Of all the things I have carried out in my life, this show makes me feel alive.”
