Mahhi Vij is by far one of the most inspiring mothers in our industry. The actress is a very hands-on mother to daughter Tara who is already a huge social media star. Mahhi who had taken a hiatus after her daughter’s birth is said to now be coming back to television but this time around as an anchor and host alongside husband Jay Bhanushali.
Our source informs us, “The makers are keen on Mahhi because she truly inspires other mothers. They feel that the connection will be very different because the participants will really have a different kind of chemistry with Mahhi.”
We reached out to Mahhi who wasn’t available. Rumors of husband Jay Bhanushali anchoring the show have already been floating but we wonder if the makers will bring on the couple to host because Mahhi definitely has an edge.
Jay was last seen anchoring Dance India Dance while Mahhi had last made an appearance in Bigg Boss and has been busy with her digital commitments while balancing motherhood.
