Vir Sanghvi hosts 'Faces & Names' on SABe TV

MUMBAI: Meeting of Minds, the show hosted by Vir Sanghvi on SABe TV has been replaced with his new chat show Faces & Names, as of yesterday.

The new show is essentially a profile based chat show wherein the celebrity guest answers questions put forth by the audience and pre-recorded questions by the general public interspersed with questions from Vir Sanghvi. It also includes a special segment which showcases bytes of people associated (both personally and professionally) with the celebrity guest.

"We realised that the format of Meeting of Minds, which had a run of 40 episodes, had become quite similar to that of Court Martial hosted by Karan Thapar on Thursdays. Both the programmes featured a host and two guests which was obviously getting monotonous," said SABe TV, executive producer, Charu Singh, when asked what prompted the change in programmes.

The new show airs Tuesdays at 10:30 pm.The first episode featuring Bollywood heroine Preity Zinta was aired yesterday.

"The channel has plans of introducing a couple of new current affairs programmes sometime after February next year," Singh said. "However, these shows would be shown sometime during the day and not as part of the prime time current affairs band," she said.

The other programmes on the channel's 10:30 pm current affairs band include Line of Fire with Karan Thapar as host on Mondays, Kuch Khaas Baatein hosted by Swati Chaturvedi (which incidentally replaced Shekhar Suman's Aap Aur Main) on Wednesdays, Court Martial with Karan Thapar again on Thursdays and Khulla Manch hosted by Manoj Raghuvanshi on Fridays.
