Movie jockey being a new name coined for an anchor presenter aka video jockey who presents movie.

Extraaa Shots will be aired as vignettes between prime-time movies on MAX on Thursdays, Fridays and on Mera Movie on Sundays.

Mandira will introduce the film to viewers, share fascinating trivia and little known facts about the stars, the story, the music, the cast and crew, and even interesting incidents that occurred during the filming of the movie.

MAX executive vice president and business head Rajat Jain says: "We had tried out this concept of Mandira taking viewers along a movie on MAX, with Devdas. And it was such a huge success, and received such tumultuous response from viewers, that we promptly decided to launch Extraaa Shots with Mandira as movie jockey. We have created a beautiful set representing a cinema hall foyer, and with the well-researched scripts and the ease and style of Mandira's performance."
