After watching them in movies and TV shows, star-obsessed fans will now get a chance to live the life of their favourite actors for a day. Shah Rukh Khan and UTV Stars (channel to be on air soon) conceptualised the show, Live My Life, together.
A film actor will choose his or her craziest fan from across the country. This person could be found on a website, in colleges, offices and even, homes. Next, the star will meticulously work out a day’s schedule for the chosen one. The day will include: driving around in the star’s own car, gym training with the star’s trainer, shopping and meals at the star’s favourite locations with their designers and chefs, haircuts by their hair stylists, photo and film shoots, and even resting in the star’s house. The actor in question will accompany the fan everywhere.
The show, which is being produced by
’s Red Chillies Idiot Box, is the driver show for the channel by the UTV group. Understandably, the star-producer is expected to be on the show. Apart from him, teams at UTV and his production company have been in talks with John Abraham, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, and Abhishek Bachchan, to name a few. However, so far only Rani Mukerji, Anushka Sharma and Sonakshi Sinha have been confirmed.
Zarina Mehta, chief creative officer, UTV Broadcast, admits that the initial research for the channel showed that the audience wanted more, and didn’t just want to watch a star’s life from a distance. “This, as a concept, takes fans into a star’s most intimate world. In a way, we have dreams on offer for some people, who cross every limit of being a fan,” she says, adding that most actors loved the idea. “We started off with a plan for 10 episodes, but now it’s going to be 15. We intend to make another season, but that is still a long way to go.”
