"I don't think there is any difference left between the two mediums now. Some 10 years back, people used to call it small screen but they used to come and promote their films on TV. I am sure they have realised its potential. Elections were fought on television, almost. It is a huge medium now," Kher told PTI.
The actor hosted a show called 'Say Na Something to Anupam Uncle', starred in TV film 'Janam' besides producing many shows for the small screen through his production house. His most recent outing was in Anil Kapoor's '24'. Kher has donned the hat of a host in his latest turn on TV. Stars like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Mahesh and Alia Bhatt, Vidya Balan and Kapil Sharma will share stories about their struggle and success with the actor on the show.
"The idea of this show came from my autobiographical play 'Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai'. It is about my setbacks and failures. I laugh at them now. My play is about my failures and setbacks. Sometimes people have come and told me they are inspired by the play. So, I thought a lot of people can give courage to others," Kher said.
The 12-episode series, slated to air on Colors from July 6, will have Shah Rukh as the first guest. "We start with the top guy. He is very charming and entertaining and speaks very well. And there was a lot to catch up with him," Kher said about his first celebrity guest.
The actor revealed that he tried his level best to get megastar Amitabh Bachchan on the show but his dates were clashing. "He said he will be on the next season," the actor said, adding Salman Khan is also likely to be there.
