Sabse Smart Kaun host Ravi Dubey: Sad that the job of an anchor has been reduced to cracking jokes on stage


Pressure would equate to fear and I don’t work that way. But right now, I am in a beautiful phase and getting nourished as a performer and a person by engaging with so many people.”

 
Sabse Smart Kaun will air Monday-Friday, starting June 4, at 6:30 pm on Star Plus. Indianexpress.com recently sat down with Ravi to talk about his newfound love for hosting and he said, “It’s going great. There’s infinite excitement as this show has the potential to change lives and I am looking forward to this new start,” shared the actor. “This was the reason I stayed away from non-fiction for so long as I felt grace was being compromised and anchors were becoming a soft target. I feel being a host is a dimension of a performer. It’s sad that the job has been reduced to this but we can create humour in more ways too.”
When asked if he lost out on projects because of this belief, Ravi Dubey smiled to say, “You don’t lose it, you simply say no. Ravi, on his part, confessed that he abstains from doing this to himself and feels bad seeing his loved ones being made fun of on stage. “Not pressure but there’s definitely a sense of responsibility. And that comes from your upbringing which remains the same throughout,” he shared with a smile. He said the world of films is not his only ambition, “I am happy where I am and if I am called for a role where my role is important, I would definitely do it. I wouldn’t like being mocked on roads so why on stage. The show will feature participants answering a set of extremely simple brain teasers and winning prize money for the same. Also, it’s important for the good to filter out to let the great come in.”
While wife Sargun Mehta is busy with her Punjabi film career, Ravi too is geared up for his long-pending film 3 Dev’s release. An anchor is the master of ceremonies and he should be given due respect. The game show, hosted by charismatic television star Ravi Dubey, will celebrate and reward people for their use of common sense and smartness. “See, you can’t prepare yourself as a host for it has to be a freewheeling chat. Also, even before the audience, an artist gets bored of monotony first and so we need to attempt new things.”

 
While he cannot stop singing praises of being a host, there are many actors who refrain from taking up the job as the current state of hosts means taking jibe on oneself on the stage. This has never been done before and it’s a new creative reality. “With the world being different, there’s new engagement but then you can’t change yourself. Ravi Dubey recently wrapped up Rising Star 2 and now with this show, we asked him if he feels overused as a host. When you are on stage as a host, you have to project an extension of your personality. “Not at all for both the shows are completely different. It is a completely different show but it’s all about people. Related News
