The King of Couture, Hassan Sheheryar Yasin aka HSY has finally jumped on the TV bandwagon! Tonite with HSY is his first ever television show as a host for HUM SITARAY. Tonite with HSY is a simple entertainment based celebrity talk show where HSY invites artists from Pakistani TV, film, music and fashion industry and interviews them in a light and friendly manner, followed by three segments where he plays little fun games with his guests. A quick heads up, Tonight with HSY is nothing like Koffee with Karan or any other show people were expecting it to be before it’s premier and here is why we love waiting for it every Saturday night!
- The Host!
HSY is one hell of a host. He definitely is blessed with the gift of gab, something I have never really realized before watching him hosting his own TV show. The show begins with his monologue followed by the introduction of his celebrity guests. Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, although is new in the game but knows very well what he is doing. He is intelligent, quirky and quick witted and comes on the sets after a proper homework. Unlike The Lighter Side of Life with Mahira Khan; the show where we only got to enjoy the episodes if the invited guests were interactive themselves, HSY shines as a host and knows how to make the guests comfortable and involved on set by his insightful and interesting questions. It is he, who brings out the best in all of his star guests and keeps his audience glued to the television screen.
- The Format
The only talk shows we get on Pakistani channels are either news shows or morning shows. We all know how corny, boring and absolutely clueless Pakistani morning shows have gone. Other than our tragic drama serials and dragged sitcoms, all we get to watch on TV these days is either cooking shows or morning show. For a change, it’s good to have something else once a week other than the usual things.
- The Subject!
We, unarguably make the best dramas in the world and have an array of brilliantly talented actors and directors with massive fan following. Fans want to stay updated with what their favourite celebs are up to and there is absolutely next to none show that invites different TV/movie artists for a chat session. Tonite with HSY fills this gap and it’s actually very refreshing seeing a celebrity chat show on air on a Saturday night prime time slot.
- Industry Insider!
Hassan Sheheryar Yasin has a lot to talk about on his show! This isn’t the kind of show where you get to hear the nonsense gossip only. Tonite with HSY reveals a lot more about their guests other than the details of hidden hookups, pregnancies, botox and secret fairness treatments. We get to know about the new ventures of the celebrity guests, their plans and new projects. It was this very show, where Bilal Lashari announced his new project, the remake of Maula Jatt for Pakistani cinema. HSY , himself once said, “Tonite with HSY will neither be digging for gossip nor will it promote or project upcoming projects, it is a platform for the masses to get to know who our celebrities are and what they think about topics that do not necessarily pertain to their jobs.”
- The Celebrity Guests!
At the end of the day, a celebrity talk show is all about the celebs you invite on the show. The team of Tonite with HSY comprehends this fact well enough. The opening episode of the show attracted a massive attention because the most popular on screen couple Mahira Khan and Fawad Afzal Khan was invited together. Till date, HSY has interviewed Reema khan, Bilal Lashari, Ayesha Khan, Hamza Ali Abbasi, Saba Qamar, Adnan Siddiqui and a lot more are still to come!
