Confirmed: Badshah Khan to host 3 more seasons of TED Talks India – Nayi Soch!
While the first season only had 8 episodes, the next three might have more.
Last year in December, megastar Shah Rukh Khan brought the massively popular talk show, Ted Talks, to India and it gained a huge popularity. As Shah Rukh himself is a great speaker, he was given the command to host the first season of TED Talks India – Nayi Soch. The makers experimented with the first season by just releasing 7 episodes and 1 special episode as it was decided that if the first installment performs well, they will extend their franchise. And now, it is confirmed that the Ted Talks India will have 3 more seasons and all of them will be hosted once again by Badshah Khan himself.
The official page of Ted Talks confirmed the news on Twitter, captioning, “Breaking news! #TEDTalksIndiaNayiSoch with @iamsrk has been renewed for three more seasons. #TED2018”
The first season, which featured speakers delivering inspiring and informative talks in TED’s signature style of 18 minutes or less, drew an astounding 96 million viewers over its first season in fall 2017.
Head of TED Chris Anderson said: “Ultimately TED’s goal is to develop compelling new content formats that can make ideas available and relevant to billions of people we haven’t reached yet. This journey with Star TV and Shah Rukh Khan has allowed us to make significant progress spreading ideas.”
