Mumbai: Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan will host ‘TED Talks India: Nayi Soch’, a global Hindi TV talk show created in partnership with TED, the non-profit devoted to ‘ideas worth spreading’ by Star India, a unit of 21st Century Fox, Indian media reported.
The show on Star Plus will feature speakers sharing big ideas in TED’s signature format of short, powerful talks. This is the first time TED is collaborating with a major network and mega-star to produce a TV series featuring original TED Talks in a language other than English.
“I believe TED Talks India-Nayi Soch will inspire many minds across India. It is a concept I connected with instantly, as I believe that the media is perhaps the single most powerful vehicle to inspire change. I am looking forward to working with TED and Star India, and truly hope that together, we are able to inspire young minds across India and the world,” Shah Rukh said, in a statement.
