FUNTAKSHARI: Ali Asgar, Manasi Parekh to host

The duo will anchor Star Plus’ new show that is aimed at family audiences

Star Plus is ready to launch its new show, Funtakshari. We hear that it will have comedian Ali Asgar and actor-singer Manasi Parekh as hosts. Why them? Well, here’s a li’l bit more we’ve heard about Funtakshari. Our source told us that it will roll music, Bollywood trivia, humour and family fun into one. Ali, we all know, has terrific comic timing and is perfect for a show of this nature. In a press statement, Ali said that he is extremely excited about the show. “I love playing host as it gives me a lot of creative freedom. The show deals with family; it’s all about singing, fun and entertainment. There is a lot to expect from the show and I am positively looking forward to it.”

For Manasi, it is a great chance to step up from being a reality show winner and another TV bahu. “As music has been always a passion, I am happy to get the opportunity to anchor a musical show. Funtakshari is going to be exciting and at the same time will be challenging, as I will get to put my musical knowledge to use too,” she said.

Let’s wait and watch if the show will be as much fun as its name promises.
