Hosting cricket shows, Karishma Kotak was terrified of “looking like a bimbo.”

Karishma Kotak, an actor and model who frequently hosted pre-match shows at cricket competitions, has spoken out about how it has been for women at such events. Karishma recalled that when she first began hosting, the goal was for women to dress glamorously and ask a few questions. ‘I was very paranoid that I shouldn’t look like a bimbo,’ Karishma continued.

In 2012, Karishma competed as a contestant on season 6 of the reality series Bigg Boss. She has hosted the television programme Extraaa Innings T20, which features a post-game analysis of the 2013 Indian Premier League. She presided over the 2019 Cricket World Cup as well.

“I feel that now it’s much better than when I started in 2011–12,” Karishma said in a statement to News18. But Mandira (Bedi) got going first. Prior to me, Shonali (Nagrani) started. So it seemed to me that a few women had kind of paved the way. It wasn’t unusual for another girl to be hired as an IPL host because they were already there, but I believe that initially the protocol was more along the lines of “Glamorous dikho, chaar sawal karo and nikal jaao” (Look glamorous, ask a few questions, and then leave). How does it feel to play alongside Dhoni? It used to be those simple questions, and I was terrified I should not appear to be a bimbo.

She continued, “I think stereotypes about women emerge quite quickly, and I think it happens even at work, where we have to put in extra effort to show that we’re more than just pretty faces. I sat down in the commentator’s box and listened to them commentate because that’s how you learn, so when I did feel that way a little bit, that’s when I did it. I know what I’m doing and I know what I’m saying. Because you’re sitting down and watching, you get the inside scoop because what you see as a commentator and what you see as an audience are two different things. I used to just listen, and I still do. I believe it is much better now.

Karishma is currently anticipating the debut of her Sam Bhattacharjee-produced movie IRaH. The artificial intelligence theme of the film, which also stars Rohit Roy, Ameet Chana, Fagun Thakrar, and Rajesh Sharma, is explored.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is quitting the Late Night programme.

According to reports, Jimmy Kimmel is thinking about leaving his late-night show to devote more time to his son Billy’s continuous struggle with congenital heart problems.

This week, a number of people with knowledge of the situation disclosed that Kimmel intends to leave Jimmy Kimmel Live! after his contract expires in 2025 in order to spend more time with his wife Molly McNearney, who co-head writes the show.

Kimmel’s choice, according to Radar Online, is a result of Billy’s health issues, especially in the wake of Billy’s most recent third open-heart surgery. But now he’s a “healthy kid.”

The Late Night presenter shared the news on Instagram in late May, saying, “We went into this experience with a lot of optimism and nearly as much fear and came out with a new valve inside a happy, healthy kid.”

Sources close to Radar Online claim that the Kimmels are getting ready to step back from the spotlight. According to an informant, Jimmy and his spouse prioritise their family over notoriety. They know what to do financially, so they’re prepared to step back from the spotlight and concentrate on what matters most.

“Life is too short to waste time on a job that brings you no happiness.”

Kimmel’s spokesperson denied the findings.
Even though Kimmel’s publicist denied any talks regarding his possible resignation and called the claim “silly,” especially in light of his son’s recent surgery.

“Though they’ll likely stay busy producing and developing shows behind the scenes, their main focus will be spending precious time with their family,” an insider was quoted by Perez Hilton.

Billy’s congenital heart issue was initially made public by Kimmel in 2017, not long after Billy was born, along with the difficulties his family was facing. Billy was born with a heart condition, according to an echocardiography, a type of cardiac sonography that was performed, Kimmel disclosed on his show.

“Tetralogy of Fallot associated with pulmonary atresia.” In essence, there is a hole in the wall separating his left and right sides of the heart, and the pulmonary valve was totally obstructed.

Three days after his birth, Billy had his first successful open-heart surgery. A few months later, he had another one. Billy had his third operation last month at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. This was his most recent procedure.
