If you love Mandira Bedi’s anchoring, style and her dynamic presence at the IPL then you are surely gonna to miss her this IPL as she has not been invited to entertain you at IPL season 3. the channel has decided to drop her and try a new, fresh face who can give the audience some variety.
Sneha Rajani, executive vice-president of SET Max, which will air the matches, confirmed the news, “We’re trying something different this time. That’s why she won’t be around,” Rajani told.
“I’m not going to host the IPL for Max. At this moment I’m not at the liberty to say anything more,” said Bedi.
But why Mandira Bedi has been dropped? The producer felt that Mandira has lost her screen appeal and she has nothing new to give her audience and they are looking for younger face.
“There is not much more she can bring to the table as an anchor,” said an insider, on condition of anonymity. “Her value is finished.”
“She may have been a hit with viewers, but not with us,” the insider added. “She’s not a fresh face any more, and she wasn’t very good last year.”
Set Max has roped in some new faces for hosting like Ayushman Khurana (a VJ), Angad Bedi (son of legendary spinner Bishan Singh Bedi), Gaurav Kapur and Samir Kochar.
