New shows you can look forward to in 2014...
Amitabh Bachchan finite fiction show - Amitabh Bachchan will return around August-September to host the eighth season of Kaun Banega Crorepati. But before that the Big B will be on Sony with a finite fiction show which is being directed by Anurag Kashyap. He is supposed to be playing a tycoon in the construction business. Shooting started a while ago and the show was to air from the end of December. But it's been delayed and the channel is unwilling to confirm the date of telecast.
Season 2 Satyamev Jayate: Aamir Khan will returns after 2 year with his thought-provoking talk show, Satyamev Jayate, on Star Plus. In season one, he had doctors riled up over an episode on medical malpractices, exposed the horrors of honour killing, domestic abuse and female foeticide, and sparked awareness about pesticide poisoning. Let us see what's in store this season. One thing's for sure, Sunday mornings will now offer some food for thought.
Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 5: The channel driver for Colours will definitely be the fifth season of Fear Factor—Khatron Ke Khiladi, which will be shot in Argentina. Director Rohit Shetty will be hosting it but there is no update on when it will launch or the line-up of participants yet.
Jaya Bachan's television debut: Jaya Bachchan returns to TV- this time not just as a producer but as an actor too. The fiction show will be co-produced by her production house and will air on Sony. It is yet to be decided if it will be a daily or a weekly one, but it is definitely not a typical saas-bahu drama. She plays a matriarch with three sons. But no news on when it will go on air.
Ashutosh turns with 's Gowarikar tele-fiction: He's been keeping a low profile since his 2010 period film Khelein Hum Jee Jaan Sey and quietly working on a show which will mark Ashutosh Gowariker's comeback to television. The details are being kept under wraps. All we know is that it is an alternate fiction show on Star. Knowing Ashutosh, it will be meticulously researched, well-mounted and steer clear of kitchen politics.
