She is also famous for her celebrity talk show Rendezvous with Simi Garewal.
I remember something about her from 1983. She began hosting a show It’s a Woman’s World!, which she produced under her own enterprise Siga Arts International. The show exhibited a much-emancipated look of the then Indian woman. I remember that though I was very young, the information in the show was very interesting and would wait for the program every week. The telecast of the program was stopped abruptly after a few episodes.
A friend told me that the program was cut short because of the depiction of woman in a modern light. It was very disappointing for me because the program had several interesting information that is common in today’s times. I really wish they had not stopped it.
