Whatever you touch turns gold. How do you feel about the success of Tere Mere Beach Mein?
I'm very happy because the show has got a record TRP rating. It has become the highest rated chat show ever in Indian television. I am also elated because the format was mine and the show is doing much more than people coming and gossiping. There are a lot of good things other than entertaining like people coming and telling their stories and stars auctioning their things. I am very happy that people have liked this format.<b1>

How difficult was it to connect to celebs/people you didn't know before your show?
I met Yousuf and Irfan Pathan for the first time and within ten minutes, the ice was broken. I felt it was Sajid or somebody on the show because they have a great sense of humour.

And definitely Shahid was not very familiar. I know him but he is not a dear friend. Same with Imran. They were really open. I became friends with Asin and Kangana on the show. I'm so happy to be on this show. I didn't have any problems at all.

What do you think has worked for this show?
The format of mixing star quotient with common people has worked very well. We take a topic and discuss. We don't go beyond that. Nobody is coming here and publicising thier films nor are they talking about how much fun they had on a shoot. These kind of things are heard and done with. The real human being behind a star is shown on this show.<b2>

Planning to invite some international celebrities? If yes, who are on your fav list?
No it's a Hindi show. Our core audience is the Hindi market. It's not a niche show. I don't think we are calling or even intend to call these international celebs.

In which role, do you feel most comfortable - A choreographer, a filmmaker or a television host?
I feel comfortable as a host also. But what I enjoy the most is going on the sets and making films. But after the babies I have to think many times before jumping into making another movie.
