Simi Garewal is set to host a new season of <i>Rendezvous with Simi Garewal </i>with Ranveer and Deepika as her first guests.

Simi Garewal’s iconic talk show Rendezvous With Simi Garewal will return after almost 15 years. While her guest list is usually kept under wraps, the actor revealed to mid-day that Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone have signed up as guests for the first episode of the reboot. While the original show ran on television, the new edition is likely to be available on Garewal’s YouTube channel and will reportedly feature several of the newer crop of Bollywood actors.

Rendezvous With Simi Garewal first aired in 1997 and ran for five seasons. It featured tete a tetes with celebrities such as Shah Rukh and Gauri Khan, the Bachchans, Rekha, Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh, Kareena Kapoor, Maharani Gayatri Devi, Benazir Bhutto and Ratan Tata with Simi as host in her signature white suit.

Simi maintained that the show’s heart-to-heart format will remain. “Why would I change the format [to include] more gossip and games? People resort to games when they cannot make a conversation. It's an easy way out! No research needed! [But] Rendezvous is about getting to 'know' the person. I get many messages from viewers saying they are tired of the present format of talk shows,” she said.

While we wait for an official air date, here’s a look at some of the most iconic episodes of Rendezvous With Simi Garewal.
