Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf seems to have made a career change from politics to media after a promotional video aired by Bol TV showing him as the main attraction of a weekly talk show.

The first episode, which aired on Sunday, saw Musharraf responding to an anchor's questions from Dubai, Pakistani Dawn News reported.

The 73-year-old former military ruler, has been living in Dubai since he was allowed by a Pakistani court to leave his country in March last year.

As of last summer, Musharraf is facing trial on treason and other charges related to his seizure of power as army chief in 1999 in a coup, the murder of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto in 2007 and the killing of a prominent cleric in a military operation in Islamabad.
