“These awards feel more special because the winner is clearly a favourite of the kids and also boosts our morale to do better and keep entertaining our audiences,” Varun said in a statement on being a part of Kids Choice Awards India for the first time.
Manish, who has hosted numerous shows, including the celebrity dance-based show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, is “super excited” for the awards night, which will take place here on December 5.
“It’s a challenge to host live acts and even more challenging when it’s for kids because we need to be extra cautious of the gags and jokes we develop. I share a great bond with kids and it’s going to be a memorable experience,” he said.
The last edition saw superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan gracing the awards ceremony.
Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt will soon be seen in Badrinath Ki Dulhania, which is a sequel to their 2014 hit film Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania. The two were recently away on the film’s shoot schedule in Singapore. 2016 has already been a good year for Alia with all her three films — Kapoor And Sons, Udta Punjab and the latest film Dear Zindagi fairing well at the box office. Varun on the other hand still awaits a hit after his last two films — Dilwale and Dishoom failed to do well.
