A report suggested about the show ‘Backbenchers’, “It’s a fun-filled quiz show that sees Farah as the dean of a college, and the stars as students hoping to secure admission in her college. Every episode will see two stars vying for the position of a backbencher in Farah’s class. The contestants will have to go through several rounds of written and oral tests as she tests their knowledge about various subjects.”
Farah Khan took to his Instagran handle to share this moment with the caption read, “I lov that I started my new show #Backbenchers on #flipkartvideo with 2 crazy girls who just happen to b women i lov very much.. @mirzasaniar @parineetichopra thank you♥️ #ilovquizshows #womenilove #madtimes #shotoniphone11promax”
The reports suggest Farah Khan wants to inaugurate her quiz show with War superstar Hrithik Roshan and action director Rohit Shetty. The source said, “She is in talks with Hrithik Roshan and Rohit Shetty to grace the first episode.” Intrestingly, Farah Khan also wants to quiz Anil Kapoor with Shilpa Shetty and Bhumi Pednekar with Taapsee Pannu.
Meanwhile, Farah Khan and Rohit Shetty are rumoured to be remaking Satte Pe Satta. And, the buzz all around is that Deepika Padukone and Hrithik Roshan will be seen playing the lead pair in the film.
Speaking to an entertainment portal about the ‘Satte Pe Satta’ remake, Farah Khan had said, “Rohit and I are both extremely excited for the collaboration. We are making a really big, massive Bollywood musical. It’ll be absolutely my kind of a movie. Rohit and I are probably the last two left to make this kind of big, entertaining cinema.”
