Antakshari & Annu Kapoor

I think it must be the longest running show on Indian TV. I used to be a big fan of the Antakshari show on the Zee TV and If I am right the show has been around for more than 12 years now. A big part of the success is due to the bubbly hosts of the show and in particular the male host -- Annu kapoor. Annu is a geniune lover of hindi cinema, bubbly anchor & a decent singer -- the key essential qualities needed to host a music programme.

I learnt most of my hindi film song repertoire by watching the Anatakshari & Sa re ga ma shows on TV. Though I initially felt that Annu over-acted (or sounded melodramatic) in the show, I later discovered a true lover of music . Both Sa re ga ma & Antakshari has brought a lot of singers to the light who have later become successful singers in Bollywood. May the show go on !
