His aim was to build bridges not only within the multi- religious and cultural south Asian community but also with the community at large. In 1978, another TV show 'GEMS OF THE EAST' was launched. TV interviews with famous actors, singers and musicians and personalities from India and Pakistan included Amitabh Bachchan, Kalyanji Anandji, Dilip Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Suresh Wadekar, Mehar Mittal, Jagjit Singh, Ghulam Ali, Mitali & Bhupinder Singh, Late Noor Jahan and Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia to name a few.
