Mumbai: In what is being considered as a welcome move by the Nation, noted news-anchor cum media-trial specialist Arnab Goswami has taken a sabbatical to be away from the news-room for a period of 1 year. This comes in the midst of Indrani’s media trial, of which, he is believed to be an autonomous judge.

Speaking to Faking News, Arnab Goswami confirmed the news. He said, “I have been hosting the show for quite some time now and thought I needed a break. Though I will be moving away from main stream news, you can still watch me on TV. I have not entirely given up on acting; it’s just a shift from news to entertainment.”

Apparently, the real reason for the shift is Arnab’s health concerns. Source close to him say, Arnab had gone for his yearly health check-up at a reputed Mumbai hospital where doctors advised him to be away from news or anchoring as he had already reached the highest level of outrage ever known to humanity.

Owing to his current state, Arnab’s family persuaded him to make a career shift. As he refused to stay away from camera, his family struck a deal with him according to which he could act in daily soaps so that he is part of TRPs in one way or the other. Arnab is believed to have agreed immediately once he heard the word ‘TRP’.

Soon, he approached Star Plus for a serial and role. After a series of screen-tests, the directorial team gave him a go-ahead. Arnab could be starting his career on silver screen but the caveat set by his family is sure to shock everyone. Yes, he would be playing the role of a dumb (by-birth) person in Star Plus’s new series: Baa, Arnab aur Baby.

While the entire nation is excited about Arnab’s new role, fans of Arnab Goswami are sure to miss his outrage with some already watching re-runs of the News Hour Debate.
