YouTube sensation and entertainer Lilly Singh, who goes by the name of Superwoman, knows what she wants and exactly how to get it. She is one of the few women of colour who got their own late night show - A Little Late With Lilly Singh, that too on America’s primetime television. While she has a lot of achievements under her belt, she also surprised fans by making her debut at the International Cannes Film Festival last month. In a recent interview, she revealed some notable gossip about her ate-night show, which is going to replace that of Carson Daly’s. Her guest list has some notable names on it and it includes some major names from Bollywood!
“I am going to try and make it fresh and inclusive, and I want it to be a ray of light, and positive,” Lilly Singh said of her late night show. When she was asked if her fans can expect a lot of Indian guests on the show, an excited Lilly responded saying, “I don’t see why not? You can expect all kinds of guests.” She went on to add that she is definitely looking forward to inviting some Bollywood actors like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
Lilly’s show will join the ranks of Bill O’Reilly, Jimmy Fallon and David Letterman and she elaborated on how getting a chance to host a show during the male-oriented time slot comes as one huge responsibility for her. She said, "I feel like my presence has become much larger than myself now. Previously, all my accomplishments have been surrounded around me, they have been about me or a milestone I set on my channel or otherwise my life. But this, I feel is bigger than me. It's about a glass ceiling being shattered. I felt an overwhelming amount of support with this particular announcement, more so than I have with for anything else in my life. So, I do feel like I am being lifted up by so many people. It has been a sweet feeling.”
This is exciting news and we can’t wait to watch! Way to go girl!
