Deepak Rajadhyaksha, Deputy Business Head, Zee TV said, “The first quarter of 2018 saw us present viewers with differentiated fiction concepts including Aap Ke Aa Jaane Se, Kaleerein and Ishq Subhan Allah, each of which has touched upon subjects that directly impact our society. And, while these shows got audiences to pause and reflect, we brought them unadulterated entertainment through DID Li'l Masters. After having tasted immense success with our last foray into the genre of celebrity chat shows with Jeena Isi Ka Naam Hai, we are back with a talk show with a heart - JuzzBaatt…Sangeen Se Namkeen Tak that gives viewers inspiring accounts of how some of their most favorite celebrities discovered themselves.

Through oodles of fun and entertainment, along with some tales of joy and sorrow, JuzzBaatt will unleash fascinating facts about celebrities and what inspired them to pursue their passion. The key to a good chat show is always the host, because it's his ability to create a comfort level that drives conversations, and Rajeev Khandelwal is the perfect fit; his flexible and effervescent personality can effortlessly engage with celebrities and audiences. We look forward to this partnership with Zee TV, a channel we've done some great work with and hope to continue building a mutually beneficial and fulfilling long-term association with the channel.”

Many of the celebrities coming on to the show are my friends built over the span of my stint in the industry, people I already share a comfortable rapport with. So, the show will be as real as it looks. In my own style, I will get the guests to open up and share a little bit of themselves that no one has had the privilege of seeing so far … this will capture an entire gamut of aspects ranging from their most important professional relationships, the people who matter to them the most in their personal space, their milestone achievements, the defining moments that were the turning points of their lives, their passions and leisure pursuits,  the lighter moments that make them cringe or laugh out loud when they think back and reflect.  Embarking on this journey with Zee TV makes it extremely special for me, given that the channel is a pioneer in creating path-breaking content formats. Moreover, I believe that audiences will resonate strongly with the show as I plan to keep them entertained and engaged at the same time.”
