The legendary Bollywood mega star will be co-hosting a special show with Cyrus Broacha that will premiere on this Diwali, Wednesday, 11th November, 2015 at 10PM.
The Week That Wasn’t was conceptualized as a unique satirical news show that presents news in a way that never fails to bring a smile on the face of the viewers.
