Mumbai: Champagne flowed as actor Boman Irani cheered to his foray into the small screen. As a quizmaster, the actor will decide who will be Bollywood Ka Boss for a television channel.
But why ask Boman to be the host, we asked MD of Synergy Adlabs, Siddharth Basu the man behind the show.
“Boman is a terrific entertainer, he has a great sense of humour and also a good sense of drama which is very important to conduct a quiz show. And not many people know that he is a big Hindi movie buff,” Basu said.
So, we decided to be quizmasters and did a mini quiz with the actor.
CNN-IBN: This is a huge leap from the big screen to the small screen. Excited about it?
Boman: I am and it's not just because there is a change but simply because there is a premise and subject, which is very close to my heart. We do film quizzing everyday. Even over the phone. People are laying bets all the time. So, I feel at home doing this show.
CNN-IBN: Who is the father of Indian cinema?
Boman: Dadasaheb Phalke
CNN-IBN: Which is Sridevi's first film?
Boman: Solva Saal
He got all the answers right, so we can now safely say that he is the quite the baap of Bollywood trivia.
All we can say for the moment is if you too are a Bollywood film buff, then you should gear those grey cells up, because you could walk home with a cool Rs 50 lakh.
