Khabrein Bollywood Ki is a Hindi film industry based news program which airs on the erstwhile DD Metro. It is broadcast on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The show aims to capture the latest happenings in the world of Bollywood. The show, however, doesn’t just show regular news items from the tinsel town. Nor does it aim at capturing the run of the mill entertainment items. It instead looks to bring the viewers the kind of news items which most of the big entertainment news channels tend to give a miss. This especially includes events which are going on outside the city of Mumbai and hence tend to go under the radar. The inspiration for Khabrein Bollywood Ki came from incidents like that of when His Holiness the Dalai Lama watched a Hindi film.
The event had King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan himself as the host for the evening. The movie screened that day was Asoka. However, little to no coverage of the event ever surfaced. Hence, this show gives the viewers those tidbits which are not shown anywhere else. The show is a creation of BAG Films, and they have moved across the country to cities which host events but cannot for some reason attract adequate publicity in the press and media. They have thus enlisted the help of a panel of renowned film journalists.
They need to keep an eye out for the various events from Bollywood, which happen outside the limits of the city of Mumbai. The show is a must watch for any Hindi film aficionado. Any person who has had too much of Mumbai-based news items gets to live Bollywood in a new fashion beyond the limits of the city of Mumbai. The show features Mandeep Bevli as the host of the show. She is later succeeded by Anchal Gulati. This is a conscious decision from the production house to keep the show fresh and engage the audience.
Mandeep Bevli has since then gone on to become a presenter on Headlines Today. She is well-known for a quick wit, pleasant sense of humor, and her ability to keep the audience engaged. This makes her a favorite for hosting segments with audience interactions and entertainment news. She has also been a member of the show Bigg Boss in their fifth season but could not win and got evicted by the viewers on the 35th Day.
