Mini Mathur, an MBA from a premier business
school, was working with Hindustan Thompson Associates before
she started as VJ with MTV. She has much to her credit. For
starters, she hosts Bombay Blush—a 'wacky' culture show on
India, which airs on BBC in England. She has also hosted shows
like Big Picture, MTV 123, MTV Gaana Masti, a spoof on film
songs and international videos, and many more.
Stepping behind the camera, she was producer on two documentaries—A
Nation Celebrates, a film commissioned by the Ministry
of External affairs to commemorate 50 years of India's independence
and From Corner Shops to Lords, a film also commissioned
by the MEA on successful NRIs in England.
Mini stepped out of the limelight for a while when she had
her son Vivan. However, she made a dazzling comeback as the
host for the hugely popular show Indian Idol. As the
friendly and warm host of the show, Mini won many hearts.
Her six-year experience anchoring countdown shows, game shows,
travel & lifestyle style programs had conditioned her to handle
the gamut of emotions she had to deal with as presenter of
Indian Idol. Though a well-known name with classes,
Indian Idol made her a familiar name among masses.
Now vivacious Mini Mathur will enter her third tryst with
Indian Idol Series 3 as presenter and close confidant
of the contestants. She will be seen co-hosting the third
season with the talented Hussain Khuwajirwala.
