Oprah is now expected to visit Jaipur to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival from 20th to 22nd January.

Some fans on Twitter suggested Ms Winfrey should see more than just the glamorous side to India and, in one reply, she promised she would be “seeing it all”.

Winfrey said she had wanted to visit India for some time: “Never been to India, it’s been on my vision board forever.”

The television host, who gave up presenting her regular chat show in the US last year to focus on other projects, is due to travel to Jaipur, Delhi, Rishikesh and Agra during her week-long stay.

Reports suggest she may have obtained permission to film at the famous Taj Mahal and may shoot some segments of a new talk show she is working on.
