  • Simi Garewal Back With Her Iconic Show After A Decade. Deepika Padukone, Ranveer Singh To Be First Guests

If you are a 90s kid, you’ll definitely remember Rendezvous with Simi Garewal. The actor-turned-host’s dreamy show gave a sneak peek into the lives of distinguished personalities, even before the trend of chat shows began in India. And now, the popular talk show is set to make a comeback.


Simi Garewal said, “We are working on the deal. It’s a bit premature right now. It’s going to happen but will take a couple of months. Let me inform you the moment it’s all locked in.”


While the new season of Rendezvous with Simi Garewal is said to stream on Simi Garewal’s YouTube channel, industry insiders tell us that it could even be acquired by a TV channel or streaming platform.


As per reports in Mid Day, Bollywood’s power couple Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone could open the show for Garewal. This would be the couple’s first televised interview after tying the knot.

 

The iconic yesteryear actor told the tabloid, “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 for Rendezvous.


Set in an all-white picturesque setup, guests got into a ‘rendezvous’ with Simi Garewal, who got them to open up about their lives and relationship effortlessly.


The format, which had a dignified interpersonal conversation, was much lauded. And as per Garewal, she would like to retain the heart-to-heart conversation format.

 

“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. I get many messages from viewers saying they are tired of the present format of talk shows,” she told the tabloid.


The long-running show has seen the biggies of films, sports, business world striking a conversation with ‘The lady in white’.

 

The most iconic episodes of ‘Rendezvous With Simi Garewal’ featured Shah Rukh-Gauri Khan, Amitabh-Jaya Bachchan, Dev Anand, Jackie Chan, Benazir Bhutto, Kapil Dev and Ratan Tata among others. The English-talk show aired for five seasons with almost 140 episodes.
