Abhay Deol is the latest actor to make his small screen debut as a reality show host with 'Connected Hum Tum'

Abhay Deol who has just wrapped up shooting for his home production, starring his girlfriend Preeti Desai, will soon begin hosting a TV show. The show will revolve around the every day life of six women contestants.

All these participants have already recorded their routine for six months on the camera and popular radio jockey Malishka will be the only celebrity contestant in the show. 

Abhay says that he did not have to think much before taking up the show. He says, “I will be the sutradhar and will try to establish the connect between audience and contestants every day. While choosing the show, I did have that question at the back of my mind if this will harm my image. But if you look at my films I have done many films which people told me not to do. I particularly had no image like my contemporaries so I did not have to worry about it. I think this show suits my personality so I decided to do it.”

The show will have 65 episodes and it will air for 13 weeks. The actor had earlier stated that he does not like such shows. He says, “If I would have been offered to participate in such a show, I would have never accepted it. I am not comfortable with the idea of showcasing and discussing my daily life on camera. I belong to a known family and I managed to stay out of the limelight before I joined the industry.
