By Anil Merani| Simaran Kaur, last seen in ‘Agar Tum Na Hote’, has taken an acting detour by trying her hands at anchoring .” I recently hosted Pro Kabaddi League nine on Star Sports and India’s Best Resorts on Zee Zest and Zee 5.
“Hosting a sports show is fun and challenging. It opens the door for me to a vast new audience segment; even our family audience does tune into sports. This way, my fan base has also swelled up.”

This was followed by hosting India’s Best Resorts. I dont travel often, so I enjoyed it a lot. We checked out eight resorts nationwide, from Kashmir to Goa to the south. I got first-class treatment while working. I will never forget this experience, one of my best outings..”

I would love to try my hands at the dark concept we have seen courtesy of ott, so we know what it entails.” her other tv shows include Agniphera and Aghori. She also lent her voice to the character of Nobita in the Hungama cartoon series Doreaman
