The show will be an Indian adaptation of Justin Baldoni's 'Man Enough'

After hosting the first season of horror show Darr Sabko Lagta Hai, Bipasha Basu is returning to the small screen with a show that's similar but not quite.

Mumbai Mirror reports that the actor is on board with an Indian adaptation of the popular show Man Enough. She will be taking on Justin Baldoni's role as the host and will be discussing social issues and masculinity with other celebs.

Justin Baldoni, known for playing the dreamy hotelier Rafael in show Jane the Virgin, started the show Man Enough to discuss what it truly means to be a man in modern society. With many fellow male celebrities on board, the discussions would include toxic masculinity and social issues that stem from a patriarchal society with an attempt to redefine traditional masculinity into something that's more acceptable and human in the modern era.

According to a source, "Given the surge in awareness around issues like sexual harassment, homophobia and bodyshaming, Bipasha feels that it is the ideal time to adapt the show for the Indian audience."

"Staying true to the international format, the show will see Bollywood's big names talk about manhood and social issues that aren't usually discussed by men on public forums. Together, Bipasha and her guests will attempt to create awareness and sensitivity towards social evils," adds the source, revealing the show, so far untitled, will air next year.

Bipasha Basu has yet to confirm the news herself.
