Kareena Kapoor set to make her television debut
Bollywood actress Kareena Kapoor is set to make her television debut, as the ambassador of a global infotainment channel for its India venture. The gorgeous diva has been roped in as the ‘Feel Alive’ Ambassador for the soon-to-be launched factual entertainment channel Sony BBC Earth. The new channel is a part of MSM-Worldwide Factual Media Private Ltd. (MSMW).
Kareena has been a trendsetter, and unlike her contemporaries, she continued her work during her pregnancy phase. She was spotted hanging out with her friends, days before giving birth to her first child, Taimur Ali Khan Pataudi. The yummy mummy lost no time in shedding the post baby flab, and was back on the ramp within 45 days post childbirth, and stunned as show stopper at the finale of the recently concluded Lakme Fashion Week.
This spirited, ‘full-of-life’ personality of Kareena, both on and off-screen, coupled with her love for the natural world, were the key factors in opting for the ‘Ki & Ka’ actress to represent the upcoming channel.
“We are excited to have Kareena Kapoor Khan as the ‘Feel Alive’ Ambassador for Sony BBC Earth. Her personality perfectly resonates with our brand proposition and channel content, which will be revealed soon. I am confident that this unique association will take the factual entertainment experience to a whole new level for our viewers in India,” Saurabh Yagnik, EVP and Business Head, English Cluster, Sony Pictures Networks India said in a statement.
The shooting shall take off in a few days and the channel will be launched in a couple of months. It is said that the channel had approached Kareen during her pregnancy, and her connect with the global audience was also a major reason. She is quite popular in the UK, a country that she visits often with her hubby Saif Ali Khan. She has seen her buddies Salman Khan and Karan Johar connecting with the audiences on TV and felt this was the right time for her to be seen on the small screen, a source was quoted as saying.
Kareena will soon begin shooting for Rhea Kapoors production ‘Veere Di Wedding’, which also stars Sonam Kapoor, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania.
