NDTV Profit launches 60 Minutes

This America's longest running show will feature Aishwarya Rai in the first episode

NDTV Profit has launched a new lifestyle programme, 60 Minutes, in the evening slot. This longest running American show is a widely popular news magazine from the CBS stable and has been much acclaimed for its hard-hitting investigative reports, interviews, feature segments and profiles of people in the news.

The first episode is scheduled to be aired on February 20 at 10 pm. It will feature Aishwarya Rai, where she answers some tough questions about her self-esteem, her weight, and what prompts her to ask God's forgiveness.

The camera captures her making impulse purchases at her favorite shop, visiting her favorite temple, ordering a long list of delicacies at her favorite restaurant and shooting for some movies that are in the pipeline. The show also boasts of never-seen-before footage of Aishwarya, including baby pictures.

Awards have evidently been a constant feature with the show. An envious bouquet of 77 awards including the highest-ever Emmys, along with the Lifetime Achievement Emmy conferred to Don Hewitt, the show's 80-year-old creator, and the current and past correspondents. Other feathers in its cap are 11 Peabody Awards for exceptional television broadcasting.
