Item girl Rakhi Sawant will now be seen hosting a chat show 'Gajab Desh Ki Ajab Kahaaniyaan' on Imagine TV.
Produced by UTV, 'Gajab Desh Ki Ajab Kahaaniyaan', is a showcase of strange stories that highlight the wacky lives and strange beliefs that exist in India.
'The show will bring together the funniest stories from across the country; stories that will leave you holding your tummy in laughter and your head in disbelief!' said a channel spokesperson.
'Ever heard of a man who has not taken bath for 37 years, or two families who combat each other and use ghosts as their weapons, or a woman who prefers to stay perched on a cell phone tower for days, to avoid getting married to a man her parents chose!' said the spokesperson.
As the host of the show, Rakhi will bring these stories to the viewers in her trademark, over-the-top style.
'I am elated to be back at doing what I do best - Entertain! My audience loves me and so do I. This time I will be the baap of host of all shows, where you will witness some of the most bizarre incidents that will sure leave you shell-shocked and rolling on the floor in splits of laughter. All I can say is 'It Happens only in India',' said Rakhi.
Speaking on the launch of the show, Mr. Santosh Nair, CEO, TV Content, UTV said, 'Rakhi is definitely the ideal choice for the host, someone who will bring in an element of humor and entertainment, in her own unique style!'
