Mirchi has announced the premiere of ‘Hot Seat’, a new talk show.
The show, hosted by TV actor and ex-Bigg Boss 14 contestant Shardul Pandit, is available on the Mirchi Plus app.
‘Hot Seat’ is a 40-minute show that celebrates unapologetic people who have overcome societal challenges by discussing their life journeys/successes.
This five-episode series stars Uorfi Javed, Poonam Pandey, Paras Tomar, Renee Dhyani, and Sridevi Londhe as well as other notable people from various walks of life. During each episode, RJ Shardul engages in a conversation with guests on their never-ending association with terms such as ‘taboo’ or ‘controversial’.
The show delves into a variety of topics, from Uorfi Javed and Poonam Pandey discussing their struggles as female actors to Mumbai’s first transgender graduate, Sridevi Londhe, addressing prejudice against her community. Furthermore, the guests discuss how they overcome the insults and continue on their unconventional path.
Commenting on the launch of the show, Indira Rangarajan, National Content Director, ENIL Mirchi, said, “With an aim to entertain our consumers with exclusive and unique content across platforms and formats, we are launching an all-new talk show, ‘Hotseat’ on Mirchi Plus.
“RJ Shardul is popularly known for having fun-filled conversations with his guests, but for Hotseat he will take on a different avatar, one in which he will initiate a discussion about the challenges/societal pressures faced by guests as they endeavor to create their ideal lives. We hope our audiences can also relate and find a connection while listening to the life stories of the guests,” Rangarajan added.
