Hosting a show requires many things, but the main thing is to be entertaining especially in reality shows. Fuze has come up with a list of the best hosts on Indian television. They are receiving recognition for their ability to garner viewers due to their honest representation of facts (in some cases) and also due to the exceptional entertainment quotient that they put in the show. With the genre of the show, the approach of hosting becomes different. Here’s presenting you with the most enchanting hosts ever seen on Indian Television.
Kapil Sharma for Comedy Nights With Kapil
Kapil has not only made everyone laugh, but has made everyone his fan. His unique comic timing and one liners have had people in stitches. He has become a fan favorite in his short span of hosting Comedy Nights With Kapil.
Amitabh Bachchan for Kaun Banega Crorepati
Amitabh Bachchan made his start on Indian television with Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC). His baritone voice has made countless women swoon and contestants nervous while they are being asked the question. He is known to make the contestants laugh and keep the viewers glued to their seats. He has sang, recited poems and even danced with participants upon their request.
Salman Khan for Bigg Boss
Salman has hosted Bigg Boss for four seasons. Love him or hate him, you cannot ignore him. He has a way of reaching out to the viewers. People have trended for and against him, but one thing is for sure, he can host! He brings in star power, fun and an enigma to the stage of Bigg Boss which probably no other star can do. Salman Khan for sure can be termed as the best possible host for this controversial reality show.
Aamir Khan For Satyameva Jayate
India is cursed with certain hypocritical social norms and superstitious. Aamir Khan through his research and innovative approach, showed us the harsh reality of the regressive Indian that still exists within the heart of the progressive Indian of 21st century. Who could come up with such an idea and who could have been a better host for Satyameva Jayate except Aamir Khan? He is the best in whatever he does, and he was absolutely ‘perfect’ in his approach while hosting the show that dealt with issues like child abuse, domestic violence and female foeticide.
Rajeev Khandelwal for Sach Ka Saamna
Rajeev possesses such natural abilities that make him a unique host. His ability to make people confess the truth without showing them any of his personal judgments is one to be praised. Many of the participants have admitted to things that have shocked the viewers, however, Rajeev has pretty much always maintained a very thorough and professional attitude. His ability of making a participant comfortable even during the most embarrassing situation has made him to be the most ‘understanding and empathetic’ host of Sach Ka Saamna.
Karan Kundra for Gumrah
Gumrah is a very serious reality show. It showcases the crimes committed by the younger generation. Karan’s hosting of the show is praiseworthy. He has hosted with sensitivity, but never took away the focus from the seriousness and at times the heinous nature of the crimes that were committed. Considering the genre of audience to whom Gumrah appeals, we can say there can’t be a better host than Karan Kundra for a niche show like Gumrah.
Rajat Sharma for Aap Ki Adaalat
Rajat Sharma, a journalist cum host who knows how to make the accused accept the truth with his intelligence and witty questions. He asks grilling questions, not fearing backlash. He asks the questions that a day to day man wants to ask, but cannot, whether it is to the politicians or actors. His hosting and interviewing abilities knows no boundaries and he is definitely a sign of the progressive India that we all want to see.
Gautam Rode and Karan Wahi for Nach Baliye
This awesome duo has everyone laughing on Nach Baliye. Their bromance is adored on the stage and their interaction with the contestants and judges is loved by all. They not only entertain the viewers, but the contestants as well as the judges. They do a little bit of everything on stage, but most importantly, they give the contestants a boost both in their bad times (due to low points) and good times (due to high points and judges’ praises).
Manish Paul for Jhalak Dikhla Jaa
There is one thing I cannot imagine Jhalak Dikhla Jaa without and that’s Manish. His co-hosts have been changed, but Manish has remained thanks to his hilarious one liners and the ability to also laugh at himself.
Anup Soni For Crime Patrol
Crime Patrol might be the longest running crime show on television. Anup Soni hosts the show with a touch of reality and with a pinch of realistic approach. After such a long run of the show, can we actually imagine someone else hosting Crime Patrol? The answer is an absolute NO.
