Veteran actress Simi Garewal's celebrity chat show where the host would get up close and personal with guests became much popular during its times. Soon other celeb shows like Koffee with Karan, BFFs with Vogue hosted by Neha Dhupia and Feet up with Anaita Shroff took charge. Now the cult show, the first of its kind is making a comeback and will be hosted by the same host on whom the show was named.
Garewal wants to open big and she has got Bollywood’s glitziest pair on board for its comeback episode. The actress herself has confirmed the news. "I have never revealed names till I've shot the episode. But I'll reveal this — Deepika and Ranveer have promised their first interview together (as a married couple) for Rendezvous,” she told Mid-Day.
However, Garewal will make no changes in the format like its contemporaries, resorting to fun games, rapid fire round in between chats. The actress to support her stand said, "Why would I change the format [to include] more gossip and games? People resort to games when they cannot make a conversation. It's an easy way out! No research needed! [But] Rendezvous is about getting to 'know' the person.”
Rendezvous created quite some ripples letting celebs speak out their mind, sharing their part of the story, buzz or controversy. Garewal invited biggies from the world of entertainment, politics and sports, and discussing with them their work and little-known details about their lives.
Among its most notable invitees include Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Aishwarya Rai, Rekha, Hrithik Roshan, Kareena Kapoor and the late Jayalalithaa.
The show will stream on Garewal's Youtube channel. The show celebrated 100 million views on the online streaming site recently.
