With stage performances by movie and TV stars punctuated by comic acts, CINTAA Superstars Ka Jalwa seems more like an omnibus of different award shows. It comes as a surprise then that actor Aamir Khan, who never performs on stage, is slated to make an appearance on this one this week.
“This show was started to collect funds for out-of-work film and TV artistes,” says actor Mithun Chakraborty, the chairperson of the Cine and TV Artistes Association (CINTAA) Trust. “Aamir Khan, who will be performing this week, was instrumental in getting the industry together for the show. He never performs on stage, but he agreed to do so on this because he understands that funds are required to set up infrastructure to help the needy artistes,” he adds.
Star Plus volunteered to air the show and actor Sohail Khan stepped in to produce it, and help the association collect Rs 5 crore for the activity.
