Actor Gunjan Utreja, who was last seen in Madhubala as Abhay Kapoor, is coming back to the small screen as a host. The young actor will be discovering the various festivals celebrated across India with a travel show titled, Spirit Of India that will air on Zee TV. “There hasn’t been a travel show on a general entertainment channel in a long time. Zee TV has always come up with path-breaking content for their viewers. And this again is going to be unlike any other travel show that focuses just on tourist destinations,” says Utreja as he informs that the show celebrates the true spirit of India. “In the first season, we will focus on the festivals of India. It takes more than a lifetime to experience what our incredible country offers in terms of its rich culture, heritage, rituals, arts and architecture,” he adds.
The show, he thinks, is important for the younger generation as it will give them an idea about our culture and traditions.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time that Utreja is hosting a show. He shot into the limelight with Aamna Saamna and has even hosted live shows across America, Singapore and Istanbul. “I also had my own Bollywood talk show, See Taare Mastiii Mein on Masti,” he says.
For the present show, the team has covered the entire country – from Goa to Puri and Ludhiana to Kerala. A weekly show, Spirit of India will go on air by the end of October.
