It is now confirmed that TED talks will now be aired in Hindi on Star Plus, late this summer. Titled ”TED Talks India: Nayi Soch,” which translates to ”new thinking,” the talks will feature speakers sharing big ideas in TED’s signature format of short, powerful presentations of 18 minutes or less.
In the series, Khan will be the sort of master-of-ceremonies who will introduce the speakers and engage with them before and after the talks. In a formal press release, Shahrukh Khan said “I believe ‘TED Talks India-Nayi Soch’ will inspire many minds across India. It is a concept I connected with instantly, as I believe that the media is perhaps the single most powerful vehicle to inspire change”.
