Amitabh Bachchan takes over Madhuri Dixit’s responsibilities

Big B is gearing up to be the squeaky-new sutradhaar of Life Ok, a role that was being played by the diva of B-town, Madhuri Dixit-Nene

Madhuri Dixit was seen summing up shows and throwing open discussions on various social issues on the recently launched channel, Life Ok. But according to the latest buzz, she will soon hand over her responsibilities as a sutradhaar to Amitabh Bachchan. For all those wondering about the whys and hows of this switch, here are the details.

Amitabh Bachchan was Life Ok’s first choice as the narrator. But because of his commitments to then ongoing Kaun Banega Crorepati? the channel had to make do with Madhuri Dixit, which wasn’t a bad bet either. In fact, the head honcho of Life Ok, Ajit Thakur believes that Madhuri has an aura of moral correctness that worked just right for the channel. Hence, she was welcomed aboard. But now that Mads’ tenure with Life Ok is nearing its end, the channel has decided to go back to its first choice, Amitabh Bachchan.

With no KBC taking up his time, Big B is all for shouldering the responsibilities for Life Ok. Madhuri, on the other hand will get busy with Jhalak Dikhhlaa Jaa. And with everything falling so perfectly in place, we’re eager to know how the switch affects Life Ok’s viewership. Aren’t you, readers?
