American talk show host Oprah Winfrey, who is on her maiden visit to India, is amazed with the tolerance and system of joint families in the country.

"What I love most about this country is their tolerance.. how the families learn to love and live together. When I was in America and talking to famous people (from India) I would ask how you live with your parents? Now I see how you do it," she said.

She visited a city slum at Colaba in Mumbai on Tuesday and is also expected to have dinner with a family of four generations.

Oprah, who arrived in Mumbai on Monday, is in the country for Next Chapter, a new series of her famous talk show The Oprah Winfrey Show, in which she would travel around the world interviewing celebrities, news-makers and others.

She kicked off her week-long visit to India by partying with Bollywood stars on Monday night.
