Changes at Sahara One’s interactive show

Aman Verma’s loss is Shekhar Suman’s gain. In about a week’s time, Shekhar will be seen as the host of Dial One Aur Jeeto on Sahara One alongside co-host Mandira Bedi. Aman had entered the show some weeks after Mandira launched the interactive game show on the channel earlier this year, as he was busy till then with the finals of Indian Idol on Sony. He brought in a distinctive style of hosting, going ‘Balle Balle’ whenever a viewer got the right answer. Now, with the Indian Idol 2 road show and auditions set to hit Mumbai, Delhi, Lucknow and Kolkata in October; Aman will be busy shooting for the same. Is that the reason why Aman has opted out? The channel and the producers are unwilling to comment at this stage. Aman’s performance has obviously struck a chord, for he was continued on the Percept Television produced show even after his image suffered a setback following the ‘sting operation’ on him conducted by India TV’s Most Wanted team (From Telly Chakkar).
