Of late, Bollywood celebs have been exploring every available content medium and no longer limit themselves to the big screen! So while we have a host of Bollywood biggies venturing into the digital medium, ramp shows, and advertisements, we also have quite a few who now host chat shows and TV reality shows.
Putting aside those stars who judge reality shows, here’s a look at some who are the main focus of the shows they host.
