VJ Andy, who made news with Bigg Boss Season 7, is quite happy hosting the latest edition of India’s Got Talent (IGT). “I think it’s a great space for me to be in right now,” says Andy, who replaced RJ Mantra on the show. “I’ve been hosting for so many years, but hosting a show like India’s Got Talent is different. So, it’s a dream come true for me,” he adds.
Andy, who became popular for his unique brand of humour in the Bigg Boss house, says he’ll try to be different as a host too. “For me, it’s like running and catching a plane as the rest of the team have been on board for a while. While I’ve tried to get some kind of humour to it, what also works for me is that I’d be able to understand the plight of the contestants, since I’ve also just been a contestant on a reality show. Moreover, coming to IGT is like connecting again with an audience who watched me in Bigg Boss. So I hope to entertain them all over again,” says the lively host.
India’s Got Talent contestant goes to The Ellen DeGeneres show
India’s Got Talent contestant Akshat Singh had the unique distinction of being the rare Indian wonder kid to be invited on the biggest international talk show — Ellen DeGeneres Show, hosted by actor/comedian Elle DeGeneres. Sharing his happiness, Akshat says, “I’m very happy, I got to represent India, on an international show like this, and got to entertain those people. I had a lot of fun on the show.”
The eight-year old returned quickly to India after shooting for his episode on DeGeneres show, as he’s a semi-finalist on IGT. When we asked him if he expects to win IGT, he was quick to respond, “I’ve come to India’s Got Talent to show my talent. Not to win or lose.” Now that’s a smart kid!
