Baba Sehgal is also a well known singer. With his baritone voice and suave pep talk, the show was a hit right from the day one. Later on, the show was presented by many hosts like, Ekta Kapur, Kruttika Desai, Gurudas Mann the famous singer again, Bali Brahmabhatt, Priya Arora, Shah Rukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty and Chunky Pandey etc. but the presentation of Baba Sehgal charted at the top. This was one of the first interactive programmes on TV and the ten songs to be played were selected by the polls sent by the viewers. The involvement of viewers was obvious as in those days responses had to be sent through Post Cards and the huge volume of cards proved the high popularity of the show.
