ZEE5 has been consistently and steadily churning out engaging content for the web audience – be it chat shows, latest blockbusters and chartbusters, and exciting digital dramas. The OTT platform is all set to introduce a new celebrity chat show, laced with humour, personal tidbits directly from the stars themselves and set in an aspirational space that screams style, sophistication, glamour and fun! Titled ‘Not Just Supper Stars,’ the show will be hosted by Gunjan Utreja, who earlier hosted Bubble Baat for the platform. The lineup of celebrities includes Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Hrithik Roshan, Bhumi Pednekar, Shahid Kapoor, John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Karan Johar amongst several others.
The concept is to keep the conversation free-flowing, like a freewheeling chat between old friends. The episodes will be shot at mixture of classic old world opulence and modern, boho-chic eateries; to match the style and stature of the celebs on the show. Not Just Supper Stars will be an ode to the original Superstars! Each episode will be divided into certain segments. The opening one would be a stand-up piece about the luminary set to grace the episode, followed by a warm welcome into a restaurant for supper! This part offers a no-holds-barred peek into the everyday life that a celeb has to deal with, away from the lights and the adulation that they know so well. How the stars manage their ‘airport look,’ what is the first thing they eat after waking up to all the cheat meals and workout misses.
The guest’s personal fitness instructor/ personal trainer/ nutritionist/ hairstylist/ makeup artist/ stylist will join them in the second segment. Here, the celebrity and the professional get into the details of working together to build the public persona of the star. This is where you can expect all the naughty secrets, cheat meals and lesser-known facts to be revealed. ‘Buzzkill’ is the third segment of Not Just Supper Stars. An anti-buzzer round, this part will have the celebrity and the professional competing to put another one in a spot so as to avoid negative marking.
Lastly, Gunjan will whip up a customized dish for the star, it could be a dessert or a cocktail, anything. The episode shall end with a five-second rule. Here, both the players will have to name three things in a particular category asked. The show concludes with the signing of a wine glass by all the celebrities.
Rest assured, Not Just Supper Stars is an informal and happy chat at the supper table – a first for a chat show! The conversation flows from food to tips, tricks and personal anecdotes from the celebrity and their entourage including funny stories on sets of the films or even just intimate stories of the relationship that they share.
