Nikitin Dheer replaces Tanushree Dutta in TV show

News Helpline | May, 17 2014

Nikitin Dheer, better known as Tangaballi in the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Chennai Express, has replaced actress Tanushree Dutta  as the host in show Fear Files — Darr Ki Sacchi Tasvirein.

The reason for replacement is that Tanushree has apparently failed to carry the show on her shoulders as the host on duty. The ratings have been on a downslide of late, and the channel and production house Esselvision Productions wanted a more powerful persona to be the narrator.

Producer Nitin Keni said Confirming that Nikitin has been signed on, 'We thought a male host would be a better choice. A contract can be extended or terminated depending on the feedback.The response wasn't too great and so, we decided to look for a change'.

A reliable source states, 'Tanushree has already shot for 12 episodes, of which 8 have been on air. Post the airing of the remaining 4 episodes shot by Tanushree, Nikitin will take over. Best of Fear Files in totality will be a 26 episodes series and Nikitin will be the host of the show from the 13th episode onwards'.
