Like most royal ladies across the globe, Soha Ali Khan also makes it a point to mind her P’s and Q’s, dot her I’s and cross her T’s. She takes the English language quite seriously and also says, “I never write abbreviations even if I send out a text message or on Twitter!”

Little wonder then that Soha makes yet another mark on our TV screens by hosting the fifth season of Spell Bee – India Spells on the Discovery Channel.

Speaking about her love for the English language, Soha says that she enjoys games that involve word-play. “I enjoy doing crossword puzzles or playing games like Taboo and scrabble with friends,” says Soha.

In the past, she hosted Khelo Jeeto Jiyo on Star Plus and fashion programme What Not To Wear on TLC, with designer Aki Narula.
