Karan Johar has reportedly teamed up with BBC India to host a talk show for Netflix. Deadline reports that the show – “What The Love? – will “see the wives of Bollywood stars discuss their husbands’ careers and struggles as well as how their relationships have survived.”
It is being speculated that the show will start filming in 2020 after Johar finishes his next directorial project “Takht,” starring a galaxy of Bollywood stars including Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Kareena Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Bhumi Pednekar, Janhvi Kapoor and Anil Kapoor.
Netflix made the announcement on May 25, Johar’s 47th birthday. “This is probably not how presents work but on the occasion of his birthday we’ve decided to gift ourselves a dating show hosted by @karanjohar.
‘What The Love? With Karan Johar’, coming to Netflix!” the streaming giant tweeted. Johar replied: “Where there’s chemistry, there’s always a way! Can’t wait to join the Netflix India family and spread a whole lotta love!”
Johar has been hosting “Koffee with Karan” on Star Plus for more than a decade, and has appeared as judge on “India’s Got Talent” and “India’s Next Superstars.”
