Hyderabad, Apr 13: The comedy show Jabardast happens to be one of the most popular Telugu TV shows. However, actor-turned-politicians Naga Babu and Roja, who have hosted the show for many years, seem to be caught up in political affairs and therefore, its organisers have been looking for celebrities who can replace them.
According to a source, the first one to be approached for the position of the show’s judge was yesteryear actress Jayasudha. However, she turned down the offer.
"Jayasudha has become known for her signature delicate/feminine style of acting and has an established image to live up to. The show is witty, yes, but it does get vulgar sometimes and just that bit does not work for the actress. Other than that, she wouldn’t fit into something like Jabardast," said the source in the know.
Producer Shyam Prasad Reddy is bankrolling the show for a private channel. It has received a ton of criticism for its vulgar nature and many believe that it is unsuited for the small screen.
