I agree on the celebrity episodes being staged… Actually, this was evident even when Mr AB was hosting the show; and I would be surprised if you missed it then.
I think SRK has tried to bring a difference to the way the show interacts with the people… Perhaps he has erred in that he has tried a little too much. But the difference in participant interaction is pretty evident, and I would think he deserves every accolade he gets for that.
After all, is that not what every actor is supposed to bring in to his acts – Individuality. And SRK has surely tried his best here.
