After acting in films for more than two and half decades, for the first time ever, Nagarjuna is all set to turn host for a quiz show. Titled as ‘Meelo Evaru Koteeswarudu’, the programme will be aired on MAA TV in June and the team, which produced Kaun Banega Crorepati, will be producing the show.

In a press conference earlier today, Nimmagadda Prasad, Chairman of MAA TV, said, “For the past few years, MAA TV has been ahead of its competitors in terms of delivering quality content and currently, we are the number one General Entertainment Channel. When we decided to start this show, we considered names of nearly 37 candidates and in the end, we chose Nagarjuna. Although he’s one of the board members, I must say that he earned the chance of hosting the show because we feel he represents what the show is all about. We wanted someone to connect with each and every contestant and Nagarjuna is a true human being, who can bring along a human element in to the show.”

Later, Nagarjuna and Amala Akkineni took centre stage and stole the show with their quick round of quiz. Revealing why he chose to host the show, Nagarjuna said, “Every person has a dream and some people spend all their life while trying to achieve their dreams. Through this show, I wanted to at least help making some of these dreams, which people have, come true. I see this as my social responsibility.”
