New Delhi, April 12 (IANS) Singer-actor-anchor Meiyang Chang has denied reports that he was offered the chance to host Sony TV's upcoming reality show 'X Factor', but confirms he will be hosting the next season of Colors' 'India's Got Talent'.
'So according to a leading daily, I 'turned down a lucrative offer from Sony to anchor X-Factor'. Hahaha! I so wish these rumors were true! For the record, X-Factor was NEVER offered to me (um..how did I refuse it then?) I will, however, be hosting India's Got Talent Season 3,' Chang posted on his Twitter page.
Chang, a former participant of Sony TV's 'Indian Idol' went on to host two seasons of the popular singing talent hunt show, and even won the channel's dance reality show 'Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 4' recently. His popularity also got a boost after he featured in Yash Raj Films' 'Badmaash Company' alongside Shahid Kapoor.
Abhishek happy with response to 'Thayn Thayn'
Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan is quite happy with the way his rap song 'Thayn thayn', aimed at telling the youth to say no to drugs, has been received.
Abhishek's fans have been writing letters and mails to him appreciating his unique way of passing the social message.
'AB is very happy that he is able to pass a message to all his well wishers in a very nice way, which they will not take as a lecture as today's youth hates lectures. AB feels they need to be targeted in a different way,' said a source.
Abhishek has rapped for Rohan Sippy's 'Dum Maaro Dum', and finished recording and shooting for the song in three days. He had last rapped for 'Right here right now' in 'Bluffmaster'.
It's safe action for Saif!
'I think with this movie, we will try and do as much action as possible. But at the same time, we do not want to break a leg and then not shoot for days to come,' Saif told IANS.
The actor, who was in the capital to shoot the climax of 'Agent Vinod' last month, says he has done all stunts himself in the movie so far, and he was extra careful whenever required.
'So far I have done all the sequences myself - we were cut and bruised in some, but obviously we have to be responsible. Action scenes are slightly dangerous always, but it is usually the unexpected, innocuous shots that hurt you. For the big ones, usually everyone is extra careful,' he added.
