Phool Khile Hain Gulshan Gulshan (Hindi: फूल खिलें हैं गुलशन गुलशन) was a popular Indian television talk show that was aired by National broadcaster Doordarshan from 1972 to 1993.[1] It was the first talkshow of Indian television,[2] and featured child actress-turned-host Tabassum interviewing famous Bollywood movie and television personalities.[3] The format consisted of conversation interspersed with film scenes. In the 1980s, this was one of the main avenues for television advertisers to reach a broad Indian audience.[4]
