Former adman and one of the first actors from the country to make it big in cinema and theatres in the West, Kabir Bedi , now makes a returns to the Indian small screen as a chat show host.

Bedi, who plays a role in James Bond movie 'Octupussy' and has also acted in popular TV serials 'The Bold and the Beautiful,' now plays the role of an interviewer who explores the minds of famous directors such as Shekhar Kapoor and David Dhawan .




The 60 plus actor whose most recent appearance was in the Shah Rukh Khan starrer Main Hoon Na initially came to Mumbai with an ambition to become a director.

"The idea behind the show is to get to know the director's mind. My aim is not to confront or expose but delve into the experiences of the directors and have a conversation with them," he says.

So far Bedi has interviewed 13 directors, including Shekhar Kapoor, Aamir Khan , Rajkumar Santoshi , Anurag Kashyap and Prakash Jha and there are plans to do another 13 more. "I have tried to include directors from all age groups. Personally as an actor I have worked with a range of directors all my life and have always wanted to have a peep into what goes in their minds."

"What prompts the directors to choose their subjects, how do they find inspiration and how to they conceive a role and get precise performances from actors is what fascinates me," says the actor has just tied up a major project in Italy.
