American comedian Bill Cosby once said, “Let us now set forth one of the fundamental truths about marriage: the wife is in He knew, and everyone else knew, too, what he was talking about. And then, there are those innumerable one-liners on the subject – there wouldn’t be many who haven’t heard ‘Behind every successful man is a woman’. 


It is such women who will spice up the new show – a 13 episode chat show that will be aired on NDTV Good Times from today – The First Ladies with Abu Sandeep, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and hosted by glam world insiders and star designers Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla. This is a show about 12 very special women who have backed their very successful men all the way. They’re the women who’ve inspired their men, who’ve shared the star status and heady success of their super-achiever husbands. 


The show features the better halves of some of India’s most distinguished men – Nita Ambani, Jaya Bachchan, Neerja Birla, Gauri Khan, Usha Mittal, Suzanne Roshan, Manyata Dutt, Adhuna Akhtar, Anupama Chopra, Tanya Deol, Kirron Kher and HRH Padmini Devi. It is a first for Abu and Sandeep too. As Abu says, “It is the first time we are hosting a television show and we wanted to be sure that it’s a well-thought out format and presentation.” 


Adds Sandeep, “The show is very close to our hearts. Not only are we anchoring it, but we have also designed the sets keeping the theme of the show in mind.” Each week, the show will present one celebrity wife and gets an inside view of her private world, otherwise hidden from the public eye. So, meet the first ladies and hear them talk about love, life, marriage and what makes them so special. And that’s not all. They also respond to tricky questions from the anchors and celebrity friends and even make a few confessions! Their celebrity husbands also make an appearance on the show.


Among others, you can catch Hrithik Roshan serenading wife Suzanne with a poem specially written for her and Shah Rukh Khan playing a game of ‘Who’s The Boss’ with Gauri! This chat show reveals that side of the lives of India’s leading men and their wives like never before. So, while you can catch Nita Ambani in the very first episode, a one-hour special, the last episode will be with Gauri Khan, where SRK makes a special appearance. 


The 13th episode will be a Best Of..., showing all the behind-the-scenes stuff and bits and pieces of each episode that were not included on the show earlier. The show starts today, January 3, 2009, on NDTV Good Times and shall air every Saturday at 10 pm.
