Star Plus, Chhote Ustaad, produced by Sai Baba Telefilms launches tonight on 24th July at 9pm slot every Saturday and Sunday. As we all know Omi Vaidya who won a lot of fans for his comic portrayal as Chatur in the movie 3 Idiots will be hosting the show.
The latest news is that Omi has got his co-host for the show in the very popular playback singer down south, Chinmayi .K. Sripadaa the girl who has been roped in by Gajendra Singh as a second host of Chhote Ustaad.
A Little Birdie tells us that, "Chinmayi is presently hosting Sai Baba Telefilms Tamil version of Amul Music ka Maha Muqqabla titled Sangeet Mahayudham on Sun TV which has been on air for a month now. Gajendra Singh who was very much pleased with her style of hosting immediately gave her the opportunity of hosting his new sangeet musical show."
Says Chinmayi to tellybuzz, "I'm presently hosting Sangeeta Mahayuddam for Gajendra Singh when he saw me there he decided to take me as a host for Chhote Ustaad and also inquired about my proficiency in Hindi language. I told him he's taking a big risk by choosing me. Having said this I have sung for few Hindi film songs and I recently sung a number in movie Lamha. Above all as a kid I was brought up in Mumbai after which my mother moved to Chennai for certain reasons. It is great fun to work with Gajendra Singh as he has been a pillar in the Hindi music industry and has given singers like Sonu Nigam, Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan, etc."
Talking further Chinmayi said, "I have shot for first two episodes of the show I'll take it up as it requires me to shoot at Mumbai for just one day in a week. I'm enjoying this stint, I hope that the concept of bringing together the contestants from Indian and Pakistan appeals to the audience and we see a change in the mindset of all."
Tune in to Chhote Ustaad tonight at 9pm on Star Plus.
