So, you call yourself a movie buff? Literally worship the ground your favorite movie star steps on? Know every last detail about even their least popular films? Well, it’s about time you celebrate your passion for movies and have a li’lmastiwhile you’re at it!ZEE TV is all set to introduce its latest offering – a first-of-its-kind light-hearted, comical Bollywood game show ‘MOVIE MASTI WITH MANIESH PAUL’.
Hosted by the inimitable Maniesh Paul and a crazy, quirky, odd-ball Bollywood-obsessed family inspired by every Hindi movie stereotype, the show will unravel the unseen and unscripted side of Bollywood celebrities by subjecting them to tricky tasks, fun games and rapid-fire quizzes, all about movies!
‘MOVIE MASTI WITH MANIESH PAUL’ will see 4 hot Bollywood celebrities coming in each week to participate in the game show with the common man (or woman!) as their partner in proving that their filmy quotient is the highest. Together, their love and passion for movies will be put to test and interrupting them every step of the way will be this mischievous, Bollywood-crazy family of roasters and pranksters and at the helm of this quirky comical brigade is host Maniesh Paul – one of the most versatile actors and acclaimed anchors of India.
This family will feature a motley of filmy characters ranging from a melodramatic Maa – a mother like no other who embodies every mother stereotype ever, a father who is a self-proclaimed villain – one who looks old but feels rather young. Adding to this interesting mix is the duo of a talented but wheeler-dealer of a manager and a naughty, seductive padosiBhabhi.
Talking about the show, Maniesh said, “I go back a long way with Zee, having hosted DID L’il Masters and a number of awards shows on the channel. It has always been a great experience to be associated with Zee TV and when they approached me with this interesting concept, it was an offer I couldn’t refuse. The show is a celebration of all things Bollywood and our collective passion for the movies as a nation. I was hooked to the idea right since the producers and creative team narrated it to me. In fact, it’s a treat to a Bollywood buff like me and I am thrilled to not only host it but also get to test the Bollywood quotient of some of India’s hottest movie stars. Audiences are in for a treat as they will see their favorite stars just let their hair down and have a ball, trying to win the game show joining hands with their biggest fans. I see it as an entertaining, family game show that will keep you on the edge of your seat.”
Competing against each other in this exciting game show won’t be a cakewalk for the Bollywood A-listers as Maniesh and the filmy family will test them on their knowledge about movies, check their filmy quotient and roast them each time they draw up a blank!
Every episode will be an extravaganza of movies, comedy and a blend of the madness and filminess of both the family and their celebrity guests!
