YouTube sensation Lilly Singh wants a 'Bollywood' touch to her late night show, and says she would like to host stars like Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra and Shah Rukh Khan on A Little Late with Lilly Singh.
"I would like Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, to name a few to come on my show. Shah Rukh would be great as well," Lilly told IANS when asked for her Bollywood wishlist. "Anyone actually. I mean I grew up with Bollywood and I am a huge fan of Bollywood so anyone from Bollywood is welcome on my show," she added.
I absolutely love this recent segment from @latewithlilly where I dance to hate comments. All silliness and goofiness aside, I’d like to share something I thought about during my last meditation. Since getting a show, all energy in my life has been amplified by tenfold. I have more people around, more events, more shoots, more positive comments and more negative ones. There’s more of EVERYTHING. I’ve been so grateful for the overwhelmingly positive feedback and for the constructive criticism because that’s how I get better. But of course, there are also comments from people who deep down have no desire to see me succeed and they write judgments or mean things about me simply to hate or see me fail. That’s a little bothersome. But then I thought, what I do isn’t for those people. Because people who don’t think I’m funny or don’t like my personality wont be negatively impacted by not laughing or switching the channel. At most, instead of working on their own dreams, they’ll dedicate time to tearing mine down. Sure that’s annoying but that’s the max role I’ll play in their life, a mention in their YouTube title. What I do is for the people who see someone like me on their screens and feel inspired, are able to relate and who are cheered up after a bad day. That’s real impact and that’s what matters to me. So I’ll pay the price of hate comments from a few if it means being a light for others. Plus, I’m a pretty great dancer. have a great day y’all. Love your faces. DANCE AWAY
With the show, the Indian-Canadian star became the first woman to host a late night TV show in the US. The show airs in India exclusively on Star World.
Lilly says she "just wants to keep telling stories that I think the world needs to hear and are important". "And I want to have fun. If you are not having fun, then what's the point? So I want to keep having fun, keep learning and growing," she said.
